The biggest advantage of owning your own waffle maker is the ability to only consume the ingredients that you want. This is what I mean, if I’m eating Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan, etc. I can choose those types of ingredients to go in my waffle batter and I can enjoy waffles on my own terms. In this article, we outline ten of our favorite Paleo friendly waffle recipes.
Time to Get Real….
I’m going to say something that I shouldn’t say. Something that may hurt the business of this website and something that no normal business owner would do. I’m going to say this because it’s best for you.
You may be someone who should just buy pre-made waffles and heat them up in a toaster.
There, I said it. In case you haven’t noticed, this is a website dedicated to waffle makers. We review them and give advice, along with linking to waffle makers on Amazon. We make a commission at no extra cost to you when you click on one of our links and buy a product on Amazon.
So, it’s kind of a big deal for us to say that you may be better off buying Eggos or something of the like.
There are two ways you can know if you’re this type of person.
1. You don’t care about what you eat.
This means that you’re perfectly fine consuming whatever ingredients, preservatives, substances, etc. that a company decides to put in their food.
2. You don’t care that much about taste.
Some people really just don’t care about what things taste like, which is perfectly fine. If that’s you, then you’re probably better off buying generic frozen waffles and just heating them up in a toaster. If so, use this toaster!
However, if you do care what things taste AND if you also are concerned with what you put in your body, you need to have control over all ingredients. That means that you buy a pre-made batter that fits your needs or you make your own.
For those of you who love waffles but are trying to stick to a Paleo lifestyle (like me!), I have some great news. I’d like to share with you ten of my favorite Paleo waffle recipes. Out of respect for the authors of these recipes, I won’t share the entire recipe here, just an image, a brief description, and a link to their website.
These ten recipes are in no particular order and are not the only Paleo waffle recipes that I enjoy. There are many more, these are just ten of the many Paleo friendly waffle and pancake recipes that I enjoy.
Please browse through all of these sites and let me know how you enjoyed your Paleo waffles!
