HOW TO MAKE ALMOND FLOUR WAFFLES
- Preheat your waffle maker while you mix the batter. In a medium bowl, mix together the eggs, vanilla, sugar, heavy cream, and water.
- Slowly add in the almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thick, and likely thicker than a traditional waffle batter.

- Cook almond flour waffles for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

TIPS FOR WORKING WITH WAFFLE MAKERS
Do you have a non-stick waffle maker? If your non-stick coating is new or otherwise in good condition, you shouldn't need to add any oil or butter when cooking. Sometimes as these things age the coating doesn't work as well. In that case, a bit of oil might be needed.
For a cast iron waffle maker, you will want to liberally grease it with oil or butter before adding your almond flour waffle batter.
A Belgian waffle maker makes very thick waffles using a special type of batter. I haven't tested this recipe with one of those, so I'm not sure if it will work.
Your waffle maker may make more or fewer waffles than mine did based on its size or shape. Some makers make round waffles, others make a square or rectangular ones. Just divide however many waffles into six equal-sized portions to stick with the macros listed.
WORKING WITH ALMOND FLOUR
When measuring almond flour, it's important to be careful not to compact it, which means that you shouldn't dip your measuring cup into the bag or canister. Instead, stir your almond flour first. Then use a spoon to scoop the flour into your measuring cup. Level the cup with the flat side of the knife.
If you store almond flour in the fridge or freezer (which is good practice if you don't use it often), you should let it come to room temperature before measuring and baking with it. Cold almond flour behaves differently, and it won't absorb liquid at the same rate.
CAN YOU FREEZE ALMOND FLOUR WAFFLES?
Frozen Almond Flour Waffles are super convenient, and just like those toaster waffles that you ate as a kid! To freeze these, cook them on the waffle iron first, then place the waffles on a sheet pan to freeze them separately. After an hour or so you can remove them from the pan and place them in a zip-top bag in the freezer.
To reheat frozen almond flour waffles, use the toaster, toaster oven, or air fryer to get them crispy again. The microwave will work too in a pinch.
