Healthy Gluten-Free Waffles

Prep Time: 30 mins

Craving some waffles but don't want all the butter, refined sugar and bleached flour?  Then make these Healthy Gluten-Free Waffles!  They're incredibly soft, moist, and sweet, you'd never know they're all natural, sugar free, low carb, low fat, high fiber, high protein, and paleo too!



  • In a large bowl, whisk together the yeast, almond milk and applesauce. Let sit 5 minutes.
  • Whisk in the egg, vanilla extract, butter extract and stevia extract.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, ¼ cup of the erythritol, metamucil, baking powder and salt. Dump into the large bowl and fold together (fold dough for 5 minutes).
  • Form the dough into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 1 hour (I used a warming drawer set to 90 degrees).
  • Fold in the remaining ½ cup of erythritol and mix well.
  • Divide the dough into 3 and shape into balls. Cover and let rise for 40 minutes in a warm place (I used the warming drawer again).
  • Preheat your waffle iron to medium heat and spray with cooking spray.  When iron is hot, press a dough ball in the center of the iron and shut to close (my waffle iron cooked the waffles in 5-7 minutes. I open the waffle maker a crack at around 4 minutes to let some heat out and check on the doneness of the waffles).
  • Carefully remove the waffle from the iron (FYI, the waffles will be really delicate when they're hot in the waffle maker. I couldn't get the waffles out as a whole so I took them out as quarters). Spray the iron with cooking spray again and cook the rest of the waffle dough.
  • Serve immediately with fresh fruit, mini dark chocolate chips, all natural whipped cream (I use Soyatoo Rice Whip) and/or pure maple syrup!
