These fluffy gluten-free waffles come together in less than 30 minutes. Very light and soft.


Units Scale
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (or other cooking oil)
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (or dairy-free yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or your milk of choice)
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour mix*
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 cup grated carrot packed (1 medium carrot)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, baking powder, and sea salt. Set aside.
  2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs, honey, avocado oil, greek yogurt, and almond milk.
  3. Add the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. 
  4. Fold in the shredded carrot and chopped walnuts using a spoon. Set aside until ready to cook.
  5. Heat up a waffle iron and brunch with a little bit of butter or spray with avocado oil if it’s not nonstick. 
  6. Use about ¼ cup of the batter for each waffle (they will spread but not too much) and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions (I set mine to medium and cook for approx. 2 mins each side).
  7. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings.


Keep them warm: Preheat your oven to 200°F (100°C). Place your waffles in a single layer on a sheet pan with an oven-safe cooling rack and keep it in the oven until ready to eat.

Storing: Store in the fridge for 3-4 days or the freezer for up to 2 months. 

Reheat/thaw: Reheat the waffles in the toaster or in the oven.
