Recipe: Almond Butter Banana Waffles (Paleo)

It’s been a while since I shared a recipe with you guys. Several weeks ago, I said that I was attempting to find a mostly grain-free pancake/waffle recipe that I enjoyed. I’ve tried so many recipes in the past (paleo friendly, too) that I didn’t care for. After much trial and error, I realized the almond flour and/or coconut flour ingredient was throwing the texture off for me.

Last week, Paleo Grubs posted a recipe for freezer-friendly waffles (borrowed from Taylor Made It Paleo), so I thought I would give it a try. I tweaked the recipe for my own personal preferences, and I loved it!  These waffles are GOOD, y’all. Seriously…I actually want to eat them! They are so good in fact, I decided to share them with you today!

Almond Butter Banana Waffles (Paleo)
Adapted from: Taylor Made It Paleo


  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup almond butter (or nut-butter of your choice)
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot flour (I used cornstarch because it’s what I had on hand)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Optional: 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
  • Optional: fruit for topping

Sidenote: I didn’t have arroworoot powder on hand, so I substituted cornstarch instead (which no longer made them paleo but that was ok with me. If you want a strictly paleo recipe, don’t substitute with cornstarch.)


Pre-heat waffle iron to desired temperature. Gather ingredients.

Combine all ingredients in a food processer. Process until smooth.

Pour batter into waffle iron and voila! Easy as pie!

Top with your favorite fruit or syrup topping, serve, and enjoy!

Serving size: 6 waffles (depending on the size of your waffle iron); 250 calories per waffle

This recipe made six waffles for me. I was able to freeze the extra and I’ve been eating on them all week! Pop them into a toaster when you’re ready for breakfast and they are ready to go!

I enjoyed these waffles on Saturday with eggs and turkey bacon after my long run. The iced coffee was pretty delicious, too!

This week, I’ve eaten a waffle with my coffee every morning for breakfast. Know what would make these taste even better? A fresh fruit topping…sad times, I’m out of fresh fruit. I need to go grocery shopping, like bad.

Anyway, let me know if you try these out and what you think about them! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Are you a waffles or pancake kinda person?


  1. Yum! I want to eat my computer screen lol!

  2. I never even heard of arrowroot so I wouldn't have that either. Your photo looks fantastic! It should be in a cookbook!

    1. Why thank you...that's such a nice compliment!! It was as delicious as it looked!

  3. I have pretty much all these ingredients on hand...but no waffle maker!! Dang it! That waffle looks so yummy!

    1. Bummer!! You should invest in one...it's so worth it! :D

  4. Love it! Thanks for sharing the waffles - I'm definitely a waffle person, but I won't deny a pancake. Haha :)

  5. Ok, I've been saving this recipe since you posted it. Made them this morning and they were SO good! Can't wait to have half a waffle every morning with the rest of my breakfast :)

  6. Hi Karen! Thanks so much for posting this recipe! Super yummy! I really appreciate what you do here. I would love your feedback on our blog and activewear line. I think it would resonate with you. Keep up the good work! <3
