fluffy coconut flour waffles + simple berry compote
If ever I waffled (get it? ai yai yai with myself sometimes) between Camp Pancake and Camp Waffle, these fluffy coconut flour waffles have firmly planted my feet in the latter.
Don’t get me wrong: I love the pancake (especially this version, which is also made with coconut flour!). But given the choice on a lazy weekend morning or a Monday that calls for carbs to start the day (um, every Monday), I choose waffle. Especially these waffles, all fluffy and lightly coconut-y and topped with a fresh berry compote and Greek yogurt. Cue the angels singing.
Waffles make a regular appearance in this house nowadays thanks to the pint-sized creature we have running around (it’s a near-daily request: “Waa-waa? Waa-waa?”), but I can’t complain. We either make a batch from Bob’s Red Mill’s buckwheat mix or these, made with Bob’s organic coconut flour, and it gets us through the week. Either way is a win, and even I feel like I can get in on the waffle action without ruining my healthy eating ambitions.
The coconut flour in these waffles keeps them fluffy and light, with a hint of coconut flavor. They’re still a bit crispy on the outside but the inside is like eating a coconut-y cloud. Because of the added eggs and butter in this recipe (as well as the high-fiber, high-protein coconut flour), one waffle is very satisfying, which I can’t often say about waffles.
I really love to top mine with simple berry compote (like this awesome one from Minimalist Baker) and a dollop of Greek yogurt, but they’re also great with fresh fruit and maple syrup. However you do up your waffle, you’re going to want to do it up with these.
Waffle lunch is a thing, too, right?Print

Camp waffle forever! 😀
My family loves waffles, so I’m going to try your recipe for sure. Thanks for sharing it!
Big fluffy waffles are my favorite! These look so delicious, I could dive right in!
Could these waffles be any more perfect? I don’t think so!! Bravo dear. Making this weekend for sure. 🙂
These look so perfect! I like the sound of high fiber and high protein inside a sinful-looking delight 🙂
Waffles have started to become our breakfast of choice on the weekends! We’ll have to try these asap!
These coconut waffles look AH-mazing! So fluffy, so golden, so perfect. I commend your use of coconut flour – I always struggle with ratios when I attempt to bake with it. 🙂
My son is a HUGE coconut lover, so I think I’ll make these for him for a special breakfast! Thx!
Kate — Yes! He’ll love them! xo

Lovely idea to try the coconut flour. Will be adding it to my shopping list. How can a day go wrong if you start it with fluffy waffles topped with jam ?:) Thank you for the lovely recipe!
I added whole flax seeds and sliced almonds then topped with butter and a mixture of orange blossom honey and real maple syrup. Great fuel for a day of hard farm work!
can you freeze these once you’ve cooked them? Recipe looks great!
Miriam — Yes, they freeze pretty well when fully cooled then tightly wrapped in plastic wrap (or in a plastic freezer bag)!
These look really nice, and they come out fluffy, but they taste like a waffle shaped scrambled egg.
This recipe was OK but it just tasted like too many eggs to me. But it was easy and had fluffy waffles. Period
When we made this, and the batter was more like cream of wheat. We had to add about 1 cup of milk to make it poorable. :/
So sorry to hear that!
This was a great recipe that satisfied my waffle craving without loading me full of carbs. Thank you!!
