Lexi’s Clean Kitchen Cookbook Review: Best-Ever Fluffy Waffles

These waffles saved my life this weekend. Ok, not exactly my life, but they saved me an excessive amount of calories and money. All week I was dreaming about getting gluten free donuts once the weekend came along but then, I made these waffles and thought, “Why get out of your pajamas, in the car, drive somewhere, spend money, and then be hungry again in 20 minutes because of the sugar spike?” So I topped these waffles with lots of dairy-free chocolate chips and my favorite maple syrup and all those donut cravings went away. I will absolutely get those donuts someday, but as long as these waffles are in my house, I don’t need them!

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. These waffles are making me starving! You are the absolute best! Your support means so much to me and I am so lucky to call you my friend!!

  2. Hey there! What a coincidence that you posted a waffle recipe! I just made your sweet potato waffles this weekend for the first time! <3 them! I did however run into a snag where I didn't have tapioca flour on hand so after a quick panic attack I read online that arrowroot can be used as a sub. So I subbed arrowroot but didn't know if that created a significant difference as compared to the original? I don't have much experience with tapioca – and now that I see this recipe calls for tapioca it peaked my curiosity.

  3. 1) I NEED a waffle maker 2) I totally made mini paleo donuts this weekend trying to blunt the cravings for real donuts – they were a fail, they tasted like straight up eggs #foodbloggerfail

  4. just made these. in fact, i’m typing this one-handed because i don’t want to stop eating!! these come together in a skinny minute, and they are so fantastic that my family will never know the difference!! thanks, Lexi!

    one little side note: this only made 2 full size and one smaller waffle in my round waffle maker, and i’m going to eat them all by myself!

  5. Thank you for posting this! I need this in my life!!! One of the things I love about you and your recipes, and what I love about this recipe, is that it is simple and doesn’t require a ton of steps and random ingredients you have to go out and buy because they aren’t things you would normally have in your house. Is the rest of her cookbook like that? Simple recipes? I’m all about the simple…

  6. These waffles are fantastic and super easy to make! Definitely only makes 2 round waffles so if you need to feed a crowd double or triple the recipe. I’m looking forward to testing these with fruits or nuts! Thanks!

  7. These were great! And they didn’t stick!! I was seriously starting to doubt my Waffle making abilities with other paleo recipes I tried.

    1. i would just go get some applesauce. this isn’t my recipe, it’s a recipe that i review for the blog, so i would recommend just sticking with how it was made

    2. This is way late and I’m sure you’ve made these by now, but I didn’t have applesauce and there was no way I was getting out of my PJs to go to the store, so I used melted coconut oil instead and they came out fantastic!!

  8. For such a simple recipe this are really great. Paleo waffle recipes are so hit or miss but this is a real keeper!

  9. I just read about making waffles with sparkling water, and I’d like to try it. How much should I use, and should I add it, or substitute it for one of the other ingredirnts in the recipe. This is for a traditional waffle maker.

  10. I love this recipe! It’s so easy and so delicious. I’m making it way to frequently…it’s just SO good!

  11. I did not use butter on my waffle maker because it’s ceramic, so mine didn’t crisp up. They do freeze/reheat well and crisped up nicely in the toaster oven.

  12. Ok I have no idea what I’m doing wrong. I mix all this stuff together and it turns to a thick cement type paste. I had to put 4 eggs in it along with some almond milk to get it the least bit pourable and I still had to spoon it on the waffle maker.

  13. just made these but did pancakes instead of waffles and it made 4 large pancakes and hollllllllly shit balls. Topped it with fourth and heart vanilla bean ghee…. why have a waited so long…. WHY!?!? So good! Love that you share other bloggers recipes!

    1. These waffles are delicious! Can they be stored overnight to serve for brunch? Freezer or refrigerator? Just one overnight.

  14. Whoa!!! Just made these, and the texture and look of the waffles is just like the real thing! But better because I can eat them. 😀

  15. This is an amaaaazing recipe!! Definitely gonna become our Sunday brunch favourite. I added some chocolate chips and served with fresh fruit and honey. Unbelievably tasty!!!
    I doubled the portion on everything and got 5 golden delicious round waffles.

  16. WHY is this waffle recipe so damn good!
    I made some for breakfast, now I’m eating them for dinner! My go too recipe!!!

  17. Waffles are a family favorite now! Warmed up some maple syrup with grated ginger and a little butter. I did add a tablespoon of vanilla. Huge hit!

  18. I love the pumpkin waffles, but wanted something more summery today. I didn’t have applesauce, and used buttermilk instead. I also added cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. These waffles were perfect – crispy outside, soft inside, and had that cake doughnut taste. I served them with homemade berry compote. Mmmm-mmmm!
