It’s a freezing, grey morning here in Texas. I am delighted.

I’ve just put the kettle on to boil for a big pot of tea, and I am sitting on my secret weapon (heating pad) for staying warm while I type. The result is all kinds of cozy, one of my favorite states of being (second only to dripping hot and sweaty from a great workout).

I’ve mentioned before now that I am a multi-breakfast eater (mornings are always bright when you eat at least two breakfasts), hence I am following up my post-workout smoothie breakfast (already three hours past) with one of my one-bowl, vegan almond flour waffles.

Ingredients for Vegan Almond Flour Waffles

I’ve been meaning to share these for awhile, especially since they are one of my go-to recipes. I’ve made them as easy as possible with a minimum number of ingredients.

Make the Almond Flour Waffles in 1 Bowl

Whisk the dry ingredients, mix in the wet, and you’re ready to spoon the batter into your hot waffle iron. They are almost as fast and easy to make as the frozen, cardboard variety.

Speaking of frozen waffles, you can cool any extra waffles on a cooling rack, then place in a freezer-safe container and freeze. Pop the frozen waffle into the toaster for a few minutes when you are ready to eat.

Unlike white flour waffles, these nutty, maple-scented beauties are packed with protein  and healthy fats (from the almond flour).

Just one waffle is eminently satisfying and will keep you full for hours. You can turn them into portable waffle sandwiches, too–nut or seed butter, yes, but try cutting one in half to use as the “bread” in an egg sandwich–amazing!

Vegan Almond Flour Waffles {Oil-Free, Grain-Free}

Yield: 6 waffles
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Make your morning more delicious with a batch of vegan almond flour waffles. They are super-nutritious, oil-free, grain-free, and easy to make.


  • 1 and 1/2 cups (168 g) almond flour or almond meal
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch (or arrowroot)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup nondairy milk or water
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (plus more, for serving)
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat a waffle iron to medium.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the almond flour, chickpea flour, arrowroot, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add the milk, maple syrup and (optional) vanilla to bowl and mix until blended.
  4. Spritz the waffles plates with cooking spray, and then the preheated waffle iron with about 1/3 cup batter. Cook according to manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Serve immediately with additional maple syrup. Repeat with remaining batter.


Storage: Store leftover cooled waffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 days or the freezer for up to 6 months.

Paleo Option (with eggs): Omit the chickpea flour. Reduce milk to 1/4 cup and add 2 large eggs along with the water and maple syrup in step 3.

Maple substitutes: An equal amount of agave nectar can be used in place of the maple syrup. Alternatively, use 1 tablespoons coconut sugar or brown sugar plus an extra 2 teaspoons water in place of the 1 tablespoon maple syrup.

Can I use a plant based protein powder instead of chickpea powder? Can I also used chia egg?


Thursday 18th of August 2022

Hi Brea,

You might be able to play around with a 1/2 and 1/2 combination of the plant based protein powder and chia seeds (I would grind the latter into a meal, or use flaxseed meal). The protein powder will not work on its own since it lacks the fiber found in chickpea flour, but you could potentially make up for that with the fiber from chia meal and or flaxseed meal :)

can i use HAZELNUT FLOUR instead of chickpea flour


Monday 28th of December 2020

Hi Tina,

You can use hazlenut flour in place of the almond flour, but not in place of the chickpea flour, The chickpea flour works as a binder here (in the absence of eggs).

How much almond flour does the recipe call for? Is it 1and 1/2 cups or just 1/2 cup? When I click on the 3x button it says 3 - 1 1/2 cups. Thanks!


Thursday 23rd of April 2020

Hi Joelle, it is 1 and 1/2 cups (1.5 cups). The doubling and tripling option for the recipe software is less than perfect for some ingredients. So if triping, it would be 3 x 1.5 cups , or 4.5 cups.
