Almond Flour Sunbutter Waffles

Have you guys heard the new Robin Thicke song? I think it’s called Blurred Lines or something like that? Well it’s a good one. Real good. So good that I may or may not have had a 30 second dance party to it in my car this morning. Don’t act like you’ve never done that before. Great way to start your day.

Yesterday I had kind of a recipe fail. Which involved a lot of almond flour and a lot of coconutty ingredients. And chocolate. But don’t worry. I managed to salvage it and make something delicious. And that something might just be another sugar detox dessert. Thank God I saved it because almond flour and coconut don’t just grow on trees. Okay, yes they do. But you know what I mean. I probably would have eaten them even if they tasted like poo. Because I just can’t bring myself to throw away expensive food. Well, let’s be real. I don’t throw away cheap food either. But you will have to wait for those little gems tomorrow. Please contain your excitement.

One of my aunts told me last night that she has everyone at her work reading my blog. You’re the best, Deb. She even said that one of her co-workers read yesterday’s post out loud to the other people in the office. That freaking rocks. Taylor Made It Paleo story time at work. Everyone should totally incorporate that in their workplace. Because it’s so blatantly obvious that people want to listen to me ramble about my fascinating life and the food I shove into my mouth. Maybe some people enjoy that stuff. Maybe you could even eat paleo snacks while you read it. Maybe my sarcasm is more obvious when read out loud. Probably not.

On a side note, I apologize if you get my posts via e-mail and the recipe/picture don’t show up in the e-mail. I don’t know why that happens. I’m clearly not a WordPress genius. But for now you will just have to click the link and go to the real website. #firstworldproblems

Ok so let’s get to these waffles. I haven’t made waffles since Nam. I was actually afraid our waffle maker was going to die on me in the process because that thing is old as shiz. It was probably purchased during Nam. But it was a trooper and held up. And produced some beautiful waffles. That I will now share with you. You’re welcome.

Almond Flour Sunbutter Waffles

  • Prep time:
  • Cook time:
  • Total time:
  • Yield: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Recipe type: breakfast


  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3 eggs (whites and yolks separated)
  • 3/4 cup canned coconut milk (full fat)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup sunflowerseed butter
  • 3 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • cinnamon, to taste
  • salt, to taste


  1. Turn on waffle iron to heat up.

  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix together.
  5. Add in honey/maple syrup, vanilla, and sunflower seed butter and continue to mix.
  6. Next, add almond milk. Start with 1/4 cup and add more if needed. You want the mixture to stay fluffy, not thin out.

  8. Fold egg whites into batter.
  9. Pour batter into waffle iron and cook to your preferred crispiness.

    These taste delicious but mine stuck to the waffle iron so it came out in hundreds of pieces. I ate it anyway but not sure what I did wrong. Such a mess to clean my waffle iron. Scared to try the rest of the batter. Help?

  5. [...] 51. Almond Flour Sunbutter Waffles You are sure to become a fan of sunbutter as soon as you use it in your first recipe. This one would be a good one to try it out and see how you like it. Almond flour gets the nod instead of all-purpose flour, so no worries there. With almond milk, sunbutter, and maple syrup in play here you’ll have a hard time remembering that these are Paleo waffles and not mainstream waffles. Top with your favorite fruit, grass-fed butter, and real maple syrup, and you won’t be breaking any Paleo “rules”, mostly because there aren’t any hard and fast rules, but more like guidelines.

    These were amazing! The only thing is it turned green!!! I’ve read that it has something to do with baking soda. Has that ever happened to you / any suggestions to prevent that? They were still good

      Yes! It does happen. Not sure the exact science behind it, but they are perfectly fine to eat!

    Made a batch this morning — delicious! Not as crunchy as Belgian waffles (would coconut flour help?), but worthy substitute. Especially with fresh blueberries & strawberries on top! Definitely a fan of the sunbutter!! Thanks for sharing your paleo pleasures!
