Grain Free Apple Waffles (Gluten Free, Paleo)

There really is nothing else to say. They speak for themselves. These Grain Free Apple Waffles are a spin on my popular Super Fluffy Cassava Waffles recipe. They are the perfect way to change up the weekend wafflin’ ritual while bringing together some of the flavors of fall.

Grain Free Apple Waffles


prep 10 mins
cook 20 mins
total 30 mins
yield 4-6 large waffles


  • 175 grams of Otto's Cassava Flour (approximately 1 &1/4 cups)

  • 3 tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 2 TBS maple or coconut sugar

  • 2 tsp Primal Palate Apple Pie Spice

  • 2 eggs, room temp & separated

  • 1 small apple, approximately 1/2 cup finely chopped

  • 1 TBS vanilla extract

  • ½ cup ghee, grass-fed butter, or coconut oil melted (ghee/butter will have best flavor)

  • 1 cup non-dairy milk of choice (I use cashew, for nut-free use coconut)


  1. Preheat your waffle iron to medium and lightly grease if needed.

  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together cassava flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and apple pie spice.

  3. Separate your eggs and add the yolks to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Fold in apple pieces.

  4. In a medium bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. I use an immersion blender with a whisk attachment, but a hand mixer will work also.

  5. Add vanilla extract, ghee, and milk to dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Fold in egg whites.

  6. Spoon the batter into your waffle iron and cook per your unit’s specifications or until there is no longer any steam. In my waffle iron it takes ~ 5 minutes. Waffles should be crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.

  7. Serve warm or freeze for another day.
