35 Amazing Paleo Waffle Recipes
Post by Lucha: World traveler, culinary student and Media Director at Paleo Flourish Magazine. Lucha will try most food but prefers Indian, Thai and Mexican food above all else. She is currently either cooking, eating, grocery shopping, or browsing recipes on Pinterest.
From Eggo to The Waffle House, waffles are incredibly popular these days. And the varieties are endless: Belgian, chocolate chip, blueberry, and countless others. Sadly, though, most waffles are extremely processed, and their typical toppings are often worse. That’s why I know that you’ll love this list of the best Paleo waffle recipes. These waffles are nutritious and yet still perfect for breakfast or any other time.
We’ve found a mix of both traditional and very non-traditional Paleo waffle recipes, so you should be able to find at least one recipe to suit your tastes.
(Of course, you will need to have a waffle iron in order to make these waffle recipes!)

As a kid I never mixed the sweet and savory at breakfast time… bacon went with eggs and everything else stayed separate. Now I see the error of my ways! Bacon with these maple-drenched waffles makes for a great savory-sweet juxtaposition. A must try!

Brilliantly mixing mashed sweet potatoes with a bit of coconut flour is what makes this amazing Paleo-friendly waffle batter. A dash of Chinese 5-spice or allspice adds a flavor kick as well!

Anything that gets called “red velvet” always piques my interest, and these waffles are no exception! Who knew that beets worked so well as a natural food dye (not to mention a healthy addition to the dish). A side recipe for chocolate ganache works great as a sauce to top it off.
