Greek Yogurt Fluffy Waffles (+Cooking Video!)

I’ve wanted to share this recipe for so long but I had some issues come up. But it’s finally here and I can share away! So guess what? This recipe is made with almond milk greek yogurt. Or you can use cashew yogurt, like it I did in the video. So yes, it’s totally dairy free. No need to freak out.

Ok, now that we got past that speech, let’s move on to more exciting things. Like the fact that I’m in Lake Powell right now! We left at 6am yesterday and drove straight through to Bullfrog Marina in Utah. We surfed during the day, almost got struck by lightning, stayed the night there and now we are off to the marina in Page, Arizona. It is my brother-in-laws 23rd birthday today, so we are doing a little mimosa booze cruise on our boat while we make our way to the other marina to stay the rest of the week there. The next few days we will be surfing, wakeboarding and tanning. Well, hopefully. It looks like we are hitting Lake Powell on the coldest days of the week. It’s suppose to be low 70’s but hopefully the storms just stay away so we can keep warm. Nobody likes booze cruisin’ while feeling like a wet cat. I’ve wake surfed in 50 degree weather in 60 degree water, so I can take it especially with a hot shower at the end of the day. But I’m not trying to live that wet cat life this week.

Speaking of wet cats, I’m kind of relieved that Bachelor in Paradise is over. It was exhausting. I got a bit sick of watching every single person on that show hating their lives while in paradise. It should be called Bachelor in Humid, Sweaty Nightclub Hell. Because that’s exactly what it is. I thought about recapping all the episodes but they were too miserable to recap. It’s just watching people be forced into liking each other since that’s all they have to do for 2 weeks in Sweaty Hell. It’s like watching my life in high school all over again. No thanks. Hormonal, sweaty, awkward. Naaaaaah. I’m good.

Ok, that’s enough for now. I have a boat to hop on. Chat soon buttercup!

      1. Made these this morning and they were a hit!! I couldn’t make them fast enough while the kids were eating them. I didn’t have enough almond four, so added gluten free flour to make 1 cup. Also didn’t have Greek yogurt, so used regular whole milk yogurt and it turned out just fine!
        Your recipes never fail! Been following since the banana chocolate chip muffin recipe!

  1. I LOVE YOUR WAFFLES! Can you tell I’m a little excited to try these this weekend?
    Quick question, your yogurt is full fat or non fat? Or does it matter?

  2. I have made a lot of waffles and these are truly the best. My house smelled like I was baking a cake and they are so crispy outside but fluffy and light inside. These will be my go to recipe forever. My husband and children agree and happily devoured theirs. Thanks so much.

  3. I made these waffles yesterday and they were absolutely amazing. I will definitely be adding them to my weekend breakfast repertoire! I subbed Fage 0% Greek yogurt since it was all I had and they were still so tasty. I’m sure full-fat yogurt will put these over the top.

    Thank you for this amazing recipe!

  4. For space reasons I got rid of my waffle iron a few years back so I decided to go ahead and make these as pancakes and they were awesome! Delicious and cooked up beautifully. Usually with paleo/primal pancake recipes you have some issues with texture/cooking them properly but these were perfect. Awesome and highly recommend!

    Wow! These are the best gf, grain free waffles I have ever had. So so so good! This is my go to recipe here on out, used arrowroot flour – texture, flavor, so perfect. Thank you for sharing!

  6. Hello Juli,

    Can you please tell me what Waffle Iron you recommend please – I am anxious to make this recipe but need to buy a waffle maker – have researched them and am more confused than ever ! So your input would be greatly appreciated.
    Kind regards,
    Vicki from Oz xx

    1. i honestly use one i found at a thrift store for $3 so i don’t have a preferred brand (or even know what brand it is) but i also have a cuisinart waffle iron that’s great! they honestly all work the same haha so just find the shape you like the best and if it has good reviews on amazon!

  7. These were super yummy, but my batter was WAY thicker than yours. I ended up adding more greek yogurt and a little almond milk. I also realized I used Coconut Flour instead of Almond Flour. Oops. Thanks for the yummy recipe! Do you know the nutritional facts? Thanks!! -G

    1. yeah you can’t use almond flour and coconut flour 1:1, they are incredibly different. and no, i do not have the nutritional facts, but you can figure that out yourself through a nutritional calculator online!

  8. Thanks so much for posting this recipe, we will be enjoying them for Christmas brunch! I made a trial half-batch, turning them into gingerbread waffles by omitting vanilla, adding spices and substituting golden syrup for maple (I used a little more syrup to compensate for both a slightly different wet/dry balance and using a less sweet syrup). I also swapped half the tapioca for arrowroot as I find tapioca can sometimes give a chewy result – would have used all arrowroot but it’s really hard to get here so I have to conserve my stock for Christmas Day! I had never made waffles before, but once my new waffle maker and I had become acquainted the waffles turned out AMAZING, crisp and light. I will make them again with all tapioca at some point just to see if it makes any difference, and probably try a savoury version too! Thanks again.

  9. I’ve been looking for a simple paleo waffle or pancake recipe forever. They’ve always left my family asking what was wrong with them. Your recipe is a winner! They think they’re “regular” ones. Thank you!!!

  10. Can I make the batter the night before to use the next morning? I have made these several times and theyre a hit with the whole family. Thanks!

  11. We had a breakfast potluck at work today and I brought in my waffle maker and mixed up a batch of this waffle batter using Kite Hill Almond Milk yogurt…. they were so delicious! Best part is that no one could tell they were paleo and everyone loved them!!! Thanks for another great recipe!!!

  12. I just made these this morning! They made about 3 big waffles on my waffle maker (Cuisinart double waffle maker) – and they were DELICIOUS! Light, fluffy, and crispy – not heavy at all. I topped them wish fresh blueberries and bananas and some maple syrup. Thanks for the recipe!! I followed it exactly and it came out very well.

  13. My husband does not follow a gluten free diet, but we both agree that this is one of the best recipes we have ever had. I used coconut yogurt…one of the best Coyo…like a coconut Greek yogurt. Can’t wait to try the pancakes too.

  14. Recieve a waffle maker last year and have been trying different recipes since. This is by far the best recipe so far. Love the texture and the flavor of the waffle paired with the yogurt maple topping.

  15. I just got introduced to your site by my son-in-law. He fixed these waffles while we were visiting and they are delicious! Could you tell me what the carb count would be?

  16. I’ve run through over 12 gluten feee waffle recipes and they all came up short! These waffles are everything you’re looking for in a waffle, light fluffy and crisp on the outside. Used 2% Greek yougurt as that’s what I ha on hand. Thanks for putting out a perfect recipe! Krista

  17. These are SO DAMN GOOD!! Read the recipe and it stuck in my head for weeks until I finally broke and bought a waffle maker today. I came home and immediately made these. My husband and I just stood around eating waffles and yelling about how we felt like we were eating brunch in a fancy restaurant!

    Love love love love! Already thinking about a chicken and waffles night. Sorry pancakes, you’ve been replaced!

  18. Yum! These are awesome! This is the 2nd time I made them, and they are so delicious! I love that they don’t taste like Gluten Free waffles. I used Dairy Greek Yogurt, because I didn’t have non-dairy, but they turned out great!

  19. Juli, these were amazing! Having them for dinner because I can’t wait till morning. Thank you for all your recipes ?

  20. These are the best waffles! I made them this morning and they were so easy to make and so friggin delicious. You always have such great recipes!! Thank you!

  21. Just made and ate these incredible waffles!! I added a tablespoon or so of pumpkin because I’m a pumpkin freak! These waffles are so delicious! My new go to for the family!! Thank you!

  22. Just made these for breakfast this morning (Mother’s Day … altho I’m not a mother) and they were FANTASTIC! Easy to make and so delicious! Even hubs liked them and he usually poo-poo’s anything that isn’t “traditional”!! He even liked the yogurt topping and didn’t complain that there was no whipped cream!! *Ü* Wish I could post a photo because they were beautiful!

  23. Where did the recipe go??! These are like my All-Time faves that I don’t have memorized.. nooooooo!

    1. all fixed!! sorry i have a little glitch going on with something on the backend (boring stuff), but it sometimes removes the recipe card from being visible. let me know if you ever see any others that have the recipe missing! so sorry about that!

  24. My husband and I can never agree on protein waffles, and we both loved these! A new staple in our house.

  25. Hi Julie
    I live in argentina. I’m confused on what is tapioca flour, is it tapioca starch? Is it hidrated tapioca? Is it casava flour??

  26. I make these waffles monthly, so delicious and so easy! Just realised there weren’t that many people that had reviewed the recipe so wanted to make sure everyone knew how amazing these are 🙂 x

  27. Waffle cravings with no milk on hand and a deep desire to not leave my house. Thus recipe was perfect, thanks Juli!

  28. When something comes out this good, I have to leave a review! These waffles are light and crispy- which is kinda perfect! I love the ingredients and the extra protein from the Greek yogurt! These will be on repeat!

  29. These were great. I made them for my one year old daughter because I love that they have some added nutrition from the Greek yogurt. We’re not gluten free, so I did 1 cup all purpose flour instead of the tapioca flour. The batter was a little thick (probably because of the flour substitution) so I thinned it out with a little almond milk and it worked great. This recipe might become our new Sunday tradition

    Also, in case anyone is wondering, don’t add berries to the batter like I did half way through. That makes the waffles stick to the waffle iron. Then you get really delicious waffle shards. Just put berries on top of the waffles like the recipe says.

  30. Hands down best gf waffles I’ve ever had. Love that they’re packed with protein! My entire family, including my gluten loving husband, loved these waffles. Will definitely make them again!

  31. I make these almost every single weekend since I made them for the first time. They aren’t fussy, I always have the ingredients on hand, and they heat up great (I just pop them in the toaster and they get crispy!). Today I’m making a flu blue batch and I’m going to freeze some for those crazy mornings so I’m not eating random snack foods from the pantry for breakfast…

  32. Made these tonight for my pregnant daughter who was craving waffles and these were the best waffles!! Not just “healthy” waffles. Best waffles ever! They will be the staple waffle recipe moving forward! Thanks so much!!!
