5-Ingredient Paleo Waffles [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



For the Waffles:

  • 4 green plantains (about 2 cups plantains purée)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda, plus 2 teaspoon cream of tartar (or 1 tablespoon baking powder)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

For the Toppings:

  • Maple syrup
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Love


To peel the plantains, trim off the ends and run the knife through the peel lengthwise, then pull the skin off using your hands.

  1. Cut the plantains into three chunks each and purée in a food processor. They should be on the green side with some hues of yellow.
  2. Add the rest of ingredients to the food processor and mix briefly until smooth.
  3. Test the batter and adjust sweetness to taste by adding a little more maple syrup.
  4. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat your waffler, lightly greased with coconut oil.
  6. Scoop about half a cup of the batter in the middle of the waffler, spreading it a little with a spoon, and cook accordingly to your waffler instructions, normally for 4 minutes or until desired crispiness.
  7. Serve immediately topped with maple syrup, fresh berries, chocolate, mint, and some love(or any other toppings you ‘d like)!
