Tapioca Waffles

Serves 4

In addition to being gluten free, these waffles are grain free and Paleo friendly because they use tapioca flour, which comes from the root of the cassava plant. This recipe results in a crispy waffle with a fluffy center.


  • 1¹⁄3 cups tapioca flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup almond milk


Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.

Pour one-quarter of the mix into a hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve.
