Now, I’ll be the first one to admit that these coconut flour waffles are a bit different than your standard plate of waffles. Coconut flour has a stronger flavor than other alternative flours. This is great if you like the flavor of coconut, but it may be off-putting for someone who’s sitting down to breakfast imagining their favorite buttermilk waffle.

For people seeking a grain free waffle, one that’s suitable for a Keto or gluten free diet, these can be the difference between “waffles” and “no waffles.” (This almond flour waffle recipe is another grain free, gluten free option.)

If you’ve never used coconut flour, here’s what you need to know. Do NOT use it as a 1:1 replacement for all-purpose flour. About a quarter cup of coconut flour is sufficient to replace 1 cup of regular flour. It helps to remember this when you go to buy coconut flour — the price tag can be surprising, but that little bag of coconut flour goes a long way!

Making coconut flour waffles

This recipe comes together quickly with a blender. If you don’t have a blender, you can use a hand mixer, a stand mixer, or yes, even a whisk.
