Almond-Banana Waffles

This Almond Flour Waffle batter was inspired by my Perfect Almond Flour Banana Pancakes! It’s equally delicious (and dare I say another one of the best recipes on the internet!), and perfectly crisp, light, and fluffy – everything homemade Belgium waffles should be!

Over the years I’ve been perfecting several of my vegan breakfast staples. While it’s important to me that the recipes taste good enough to satisfy vegans and non-vegans alike, it’s equally important that they’re made with good-for-you ingredients. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should be as nutritious and wholesome as possible! 

And when I’m not in the mood for oatmealchia pudding, or a refreshing acai bowl, I tend to crave heartier favourites like pancakes or waffles. (Especially on weekends when I have a little extra time to make something special for the family).

In this easy vegan almond flour waffle recipe, I used the same blender method as my Vegan & Gluten Free Waffles, but I’ve filled the waffles with nutrient-rich almond flour, mashed banana for sweetness, and olive oil for a boost of healthy fats and to achieve crispiness. It’s truly one for the books and a recipe you won’t want to miss out on! 

Now let’s get into the details, so that you can make these fluffy waffles pronto!

Ingredients You’ll Need

2. Next, add the almond milk, olive oil, vanilla extract, apple cider vinegar, and chopped banana into the blender canister. Add the lid and blend on high until the banana is pureed and the wet ingredients are smooth.

3. Shake the flour mixture into the blender bit-by-bit, blending on medium-high as you go to incorporate the ingredients. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed until a smooth waffle batter forms. 

4. Spray the inside of your waffle maker with cooking spray (you can also brush the inside of the waffle iron with oil using a pastry brush or basting brush), and let it pre-heat on the medium heat setting. 

5. Once pre-heated, gently pour the batter into the waffle maker until almost full. Close the waffle iron and cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until the waffles are golden brown on the exterior and fully cooked and tender on the inside.

6. Remove the waffle from the waffle maker and continue the process until you’ve used all of the batter. This recipe should make about 4 Belgium waffles or 6 square waffles. 

7. Serve immediately while the waffles are crisp and warm with toppings of choice!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a small mixing bowl add the almond flour, millet flour, tapioca flour, gluten-free flour, and baking powder. Mix together to combine and set aside.
  • In a blender add the almond milk, olive oil, vanilla, apple cider vinegar and banana, blend on high to combine. Shake the flour mixture into the blender bit-by-bit while stopping to blend on medium-high until you've added all the dry ingredients to the blender and the batter is smooth and combined, about 1 minute. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed so everything is nice and smooth.
  • Spray the inside of the waffle maker with oil. Close the waffle maker and turn it on to medium heat setting. When pre-heated, gently pour the batter into the waffle maker until almost full. Close and cook as instructed by waffle machine (about 4-5 minutes total), or until golden brown.
  • Remove the waffle from the waffle maker and continue the process until you've used all the batter. (Optional to keep the waffles warm in the oven on a baking tray at 170F/75C until ready to eat).
  • Serve with maple syrup, strawberries, or toppings of choice.

Notes

  • Recipes are best served fresh! But will keep for 3 days. Wrap well in reusable wrap or plastic wrap and store in an air-tight container to stop them from drying out. Toast in a toaster on low to warm and crisp them up again.
  • These waffles can also be frozen. Allow the waffles to cool completely on a wire cooling rack (this will prevent them from going soggy from the warm condensation!), then transfer them to a baking sheet.
  • Flash freeze the leftover waffles until solid, about 1 hour, then freeze for up to 2 months in a freezer safe bag or airtight container. Frozen waffles can be reheated in the toaster oven, an air fryer, or even a toaster!
