  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 1 cup ham, diced, divided
  • 1/4 cup scallions, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (we use sharp cheddar)
  • High heat cooking spray (we use avocado oil spray)


  1. Preheat a waffle maker according to the appliance instructions.
  2. Whisk together the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl until fully combined.
  3. Add in the eggs, applesauce and maple syrup and whisk to combine.
  4. Fold in the ¾ cup ham, 3 tablespoons scallions and cheese.
  5. Spray the heated waffle iron with a high heat cooking spray (we use avocado oil). Following the directions for your waffle maker regarding batter quantity and cook time, pour in the batter and cook the waffles until cooked through and lightly golden. Remove and if desired transfer to a low oven to keep warm. Spray the waffle iron with avocado oil and repeat with remaining batter.
  6. Serve the waffles hot and garnish with butter, remaining chopped ham and scallions and drizzled honey.
