These Grain-Free Cassava Flour Waffles are so simple to make! Cassava flour is a gluten-free, grain-free & nut-free single ingredient flour with the neutral taste and texture of wheat. It's made from the whole root of the cassava plant and is perfect for baking.
Have You Tried Baking With Cassava Flour?
Cassava flour seems to be all the buzz on social media! I picked it up for the first time just recently at our local organic grocery store. I was intrigued at the claims that it could used as a gluten-free and grain-free 1 to 1 substitute for wheat flour recipes, so I quickly put it to the test with an old waffle recipe from back in our gluten-filled days!
I've only used it a few times so far, but I'm so glad I tried. Cassava flour can be pricey, but it was definitely worth it for such an easy grain-free flour substitution. My favorite brand of cassava is Otto's. I'm loving the results and will defintely be using it more frequently because of how versatile it is.
What ingredients do I need to make these Cassava Flour Waffles?
Besides the flour, you only need a few common pantry staples to make this easy and delicious waffle recipe! Here's what you'll need:
- Cassava Flour
- Baking Powder
- Coconut Oil
- Pure Vanilla Extract
Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl and stir to combine. Add the wet ingredients and whisk well until a batter forms. You may need to add a little more milk if it's too thick. Add the batter to your waffle iron and cook as you normally would for regular waffles.
This Cassava Flour Waffle recipe could work well for either sweet or savory waffles. For a classic sweet breakfast waffle, this recipe includes vanilla extract and cinnamon. You could also add a couple tablespoons of pure maple syrup to the batter for extra sweetness, but I like to leave the sweetness to the toppings!
What toppings can I use for these Cassava Flour Waffles?
One of our favorite ways to top these waffles is with this easy homemade chia seed jam. The combo of the waffles and the fresh jam is so berry delicious!
Here are some more ideas!
- Fresh Fruit, or a berry compote.
- Pure Maple Syrup, or a drizzle of honey.
- Carmelized Bananas
- Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
- Cream Cheese
For a savory waffle, all you have to do is leave out the cinnamon and vanilla. Now you're ready for some chicken and waffles, fried egg & avocado, or some grain-free sandwiches!
Don't be afraid to double this recipe and keep a stash of waffles in an airtight container in the freezer. Now, you can have grain-free waffles whenever you choose...breakfast, lunch or dinner!
