Serves 1 | Prep 5 mins | Cook 10 mins |




  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1/2 tsp apple pie spice (if you add in more then it has a VERY strong taste)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 flax eggs (or normal eggs if you’re not vegan)
  • 4 tbsp coconut/ almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Sweetener of choice e.g. agave, maple syrup (syrupy sweeteners not granulated to form a smoother consistency)


1 Preheat your waffle iron and coat it with vegetable oil.

2 Sift the coconut flour, maca powder, apple pie spice and baking powder into a mixing bowl, then whisk to combine.

3 Add in the flax eggs, milk, vanilla extract and sweetener, then whisk until the batter is smooth.

4 How many waffles you get will depend on your waffle iron. Mine has two square wells, so I pour 3-4tbsp of the batter onto the centre of each. Use your judgement with how your own waffle iron cooks.

5 Let the waffle iron do it’s magic and repeat with the rest of the batter until it’s gone!

6 Then top with whatever you want: melted peanut butter, chopped fruit… and enjoy!
