Waffles Without Flour

Waffles Without Flour


I found amazing recipes for Plantain waffles. Paleomum.com posted a recipe based on plantain banana, eggs and coconut oil. Similar recipe but without eggs was published by Holdthegrain.com. I love these recipes as they require just two/three main ingredients. I even excluded some of the minor ingredients from the original recipes and the waffles were still amazing :-)

~Plantain Waffles~

Dietary restrictions

  • Grain free
  • Dairy free
  • Nuts free
  • Refined white flours free
  • Refined sugar free
  • Eggs free (as I eat a lot of eggs with other meals)



I like minimalism so this is what I used to make my waffles

  • Plantains (yellow and ripe) – 2
  • Coconut oil – 2 melted spoons
  • Cinnamon – 1 spoon
  • Vanilla extract – 1/2 spoon
  • Baking soda – 1/2 spoon
  • Apple cider vinegar – 1 spoon

..and this is how I made them

  1. I mashed the plantains using a kitchen processor
  2. In a small pan I melted 2.5 spoons of coconut fat and I mixed it with the plantain pure
  3. Then I added the rest of ingredients: cinnamon, vanilla, soda and vinegar
  4. Well mixed pure I transferred  to a hot waffle machine which was earlier coated with coconut fat
  5. Baked until golden brown

I chose ripe yellow plantains with black spots all over. They were soft and really sweet. As I didn’t eat refined sugar for 10 days the waffles seemed very sweet to me. Just don’t expect them to be extremely crunchy. Mine were soft and only slightly crunchy but still mouth watering!

The most guilt free use of my waffle making machine ever :-)
