Maple Vanilla Almond Waffles

This recipe was inspired by my Maple Vanilla Almond Granola which is my most favorite granola.  In the granola recipe, I use leftover almond meal from making my Homemade Almond Milk.  So I was hoping I could use some leftover meal in the waffle recipe as well.


It worked!  So excited.  Love when that happens.

Maple Vanilla Almond Waffles

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 10 min Serves 4-5 waffles     adjust servings


  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal (or almond flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I used almond milk)
  • 2 T maple syrup
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 2 heaping tsp crushed vanilla bean (you can use vanilla extract, but the crushed vanilla bean s gives such a nice sweet flavor, so I like using it much better)
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 egg or egg substitute (I used a flax egg)


  1. Turn on your waffle maker.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.  I actually do this the night before so I can quickly make the waffles in the morning. 
  3. Mix all the wet ingredients into another. 
  4. Add wet to dry and mix until combined. 
  5. Spoon batter onto the greased waffle iron.  The batter will be thick. 
  6. I spoon about 1/2 cup amount and use the spatula to help spread the batter out a bit.


Recipe Notes

I got about 4 1/2 waffles out of my batch. If you have leftovers you can freeze them and re-heat later. I do it all the time. Enjoy!
