Churro Waffles

Say whaaaaaa?? I was recently inspired by Vanessa of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind and her amazing recipes, but specifically her paleo churros. She’s pretty much a genius. Look at all of her other recipes because, you’ll die. She’s so rad. Anywho, I made churro waffles instead! Yay!

What is up with people loving the movie ‘Risky Business’? It’s suppose to be a classic, right? I mean, people dress up like Tom Cruise in that movie all the time on Halloween. Well, I watched it the other day, and I wasn’t that impressed. Was it a huge movie since making movies about whores was more of a big deal back then than it is now? Because I felt like I was going through the movie ‘Drive’ again. And if you ever read that blog post, I HATE that movie. So boring. Too many awkward silences. Too many weird human to human interactions. I don’t understand popular movies. I’m just not hip enough.

So the other morning, I woke up, looked outside, and noticed that something was missing from our backyard. You know that meathead Jake that I talk about sometimes? He’s the one who found my car after it was stolen right outside the front of my house. And since he’s so smart, one night he left his scooter in our backyard, not the garage, but in the backyard. And we don’t exactly have a tall fence. At all. So the scooter sat there, in the wide open for 2 months, and on Saturday, it sat no more. Someone decided it was dumb that we were keeping it out in the open for someone to steal, so they stole it. Makes sense, but still rude. They shut the gate behind them, though. At least they were polite.


Churro Waffles

  • Yield: 2-3 1x




  1. Place almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and whisk together.
  2. Then add coconut milk, eggs, honey, and vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. Place mixture into hotwaffle iron and cook until cooked through. I used a non stick waffle iron but you may want to grease it just in case.
  4. Melt butter in a wide bowl and place coconut sugar in another wide bowl.
  5. After waffles are cooked through, place each other into the melted butter, soaking it on both sides, then place them into the coconut sugar to coat.
  6. Then eat!


Made 6 small waffles. Should make 3-4 large waffles

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I am a huge fan of all the great Paleo food ideas you have. I also love reading your blog, you are a crack up! I am constantly trying new things and love the waffle/pancake challenge. I feed a family of 4 boys and they are my taste testers for all things Paleo. I recently replaced my almond flour in my waffle recipe with milled flax seed. It comes at a much lower price and the taste is preferred in my house. It does take on a darker color but I cant wait to try it with your churro waffle recipe! Thanks for the great ideas!

  2. I’ve been a lurker for a long time, but the site of this churro waffle inspired me to come out of the darkness!! Darn tiny NYC apartment that doesn’t have space for a waffle maker! Churro pancakes, perhaps?

  3. O.M.G. I don’t usually comment on blogs, but I follow yours religiously. This looks ah-ma-zing!!! Can’t wait to try it…stupid work getting in my way. I’ll have to wait until tonight. Dinner.

  4. these look AMAZING.. i need a waffle maker. and to be done with this 21dsd haha.

    random question for you- i REALLY want to try steves paleo jerky, and i was about to place an order, but the shipping cost is the same amount as the items i’m trying to buy! any chance you have some sort of coupon code available? i would be super duper grateful.


  5. i just want you to know, I consider you my paleo guru. You were the first paleo blog/recipes I found when I started out… and thanks to you I’ve found other amazing blogs with great recipes. (But guess which blog I check first every day… my guru’s!)

    You are the light that guides my way in this paleo journey – CHEESE… and i’m eating happy because of it.
    Hot damn! Thanks Juli!!!

  6. What what WHAT? Oh my goodness Juli this looks so so good! I was just graving cinnamon bun waffles yesterday because I saw this stupid easy recipe but it was also stupidly not at all paleo or cool to make (frozen cinnamon…a waffle iron) but now I can have cinnamon-ny goodness that will also make my tummy happy?
    Thanks for turning the churros into churro waffles. <3

  7. Can you PLEASE do some paleo dorm recipes. I have so many college friends that want to go pale, but our dorm kitchens (no oven) canont make all our favorite treats! Just something to think about

  8. I made these this morning as pancakes cuz I never thought I would need a waffle iron as a Paleo eater. These rock almost as much as you do Juli!

  9. I help my 10 year old make these waffles this morning and WOW, they are amazing! These are the best gluten-free waffles we’ve tried and they even rival the gluten waffles we used to make! Words don’t can describe how much I love them! Thanks so much for posting!

  12. I’ve never commented on a blog/website- but these waffles BLEW me away this morning!! I thought it was bad Karma not to thank you for turning me onto Paleo and the blessed Churro Waffles- whew, YUM!! I seem to read about Paleo, become overwhelmed, go back to my routine, and chalk it up as ‘not for me’. Until I stumbled onto your website – many thanks for the crockpot recipes and jewels like Churro Waffles!! I need recipes to be simple and delicious (or else I just read them, never prepare them) Thanks, again!! ~ A HAPPY CAMPER IN NEW MEXICO

  13. my 4 and 10 year old were in love with your waffles, then i showed them your dance video- and they were in love with you-now with these waffles…. it’s a tie
    ; )

  14. I am so grateful for you and your blog! I am eating a churro waffle right this moments and it is amazing! I have three kids and struggle with feeding them low carb food, especially at breakfast time ( eggs again?!). I am sure they will ove these as much as I do. I enjoy your blog and think we would get along great so look me up if you are ever in MN!!!!

  15. Hello quick Q: Can you sub the almond flour for something else, like Oat flour or maybe Coconut flour or spelt flour?

    Pura Vida

  16. I love the waffle recipe. I put too much sugar on mine though. Next time I think I’ll sprinkle the sugar on instead of dipping the waffle in it. Thanks for another great recipe. =)

  17. I went out and bought a waffle maker just to try this recipe. Totally worth it. My husband had the audacity to argue that I didn’t need a waffle maker – now he keeps begging me to make more of these. I take that as a total win in the marriage department. I feel like Churro Waffles should be illegal or sold at the Texas State Fair – maybe both. Do you want to just move to Boulder and be my best friend Julie?? 🙂

  18. Julie, I just made these this morning (it’s my birthday, so I wanted a special treat) and they were AMAZEBALLS! What an awesome recipe.

  19. They turned out amazing! I’ve been eating paleo for five months now and this recipe is perfect for when I get my dessert cravings. Love it!

  20. I’ve been tossing up whether to buy a waffle make for sometime now, today I finally did, I’m dying to make these, just need my very sooky babies to have a nap so I can cook and eat my waffles!

  21. I made these tonight & they were perfect! Just enough for a family of four with two small kids. Everyone loved them. Thanks for the great idea!

  22. Made these because I needed something sweet stat. These hit the spot, quick and easy to make and YUMMY. A big hit with everyone in the room. Thank you!

  23. Delish! My first paleo waffle. I accidentally added the butter to the batter. I made a couple with the butter/sugar coating but decided I prefer it plain with maple syrup. Yummy!!

  24. I’m new to paleo and so far I love it. Love this blog and this recipe was amazing. I was super full really quick, thanks Juli!

  25. When I made these, my waffle maker stuck and split them in two. So I made waffle sandwiches with canadian back bacon, spinach, and a poached egg. Brushed top of waffle with coconut oil & coconut sugar. So. Amazing!!!

  26. We are a family of five big eaters so I doubled this recipe, added two more eggs and about another 1/4 cup of milk (we used dairy, ’cause that’s what I had) and ended up with six big and very filling, yummy waffles. Thanks!

  27. So GOOD!!!!! Thanks for this amazing recipe!!! The best paleo waffle ever made in my house!!

  28. I just came across your blog while searching recipes using coconut sugar. I tried this recipe for lunch and it is beyond awesomesauce! I’m hooked and a avid follower now! Been doing paleo 3 weeks and I’m I’m love with my lifestyle! Down 6.7 lbs and on my way to a healthier me!

  29. Do you think it would still work in a waffle iron if I use flax egg mix instead of eggs. I have a couple children who can not have eggs (total bummer being Paleo) but we manage nicely since we discovered flax egg replacement. (1 Tbl. ground flax, 3Tbl. water for each egg)
