These Mini Waffles are the perfect kid-friendly breakfast or treat, but adults will love them just as much. The best part: they are freezer friendly for a quick morning meal.

You wouldn’t know these waffles were made without flour and they’re a cinch to put together using only one bowl. They are fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside.

How to Make Mini Waffles

What I love most about this recipe is that it’s made all in one bowl! Start by whisking together all of the wet ingredients and then add in the dry ingredients and whisk until fully combined. Because there is no gluten here, there is no worry about the waffles being tough from overmixing.

Once you’ve mixed the batter, heat up your waffle and make sure to spray well with a high-heat cooking spray! To make them mini add in 1 tablespoon of batter at a time. If your waffle iron makes 1 large waffle you may be able to add 1-3 tablespoons of batter spaced far apart to make the mini waffles.

You can serve the waffles immediately, or let it cool completely and freeze. To freeze them place them flat on a sheet pan and freeze completely, then place in a bag with an air tight seal for longer term storage. Freezing them flat first ensures they keep their shape. Waffles will keep frozen for up to 3 months. To reheat place in a toaster oven until heated through

Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 5 minutes Total Time 0:15 Yields approximately 25 waffle bites

Ingredients

    Best Ever Fluffy Waffles from page 35 of the Lexi's Clean Kitchen Cookbook

    Caramelized Apples

    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 apples, diced
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, more to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, more to taste
    • pinch of sea salt

    Cinnamon-Sugar Churro Coating

    Directions

    1. Pre-heat waffle maker set to low heat and brush liberally with melted butter.
    2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, and sea salt. Add in eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk until fully combined and no lumps remain.
    3. Following the directions for your waffle maker, cook four waffles at a time by adding 1 tablespoon of waffle mix to each quadrant. Cook until waffles are light brown and set aside until all of the waffle batter is used. *You can place the finished waffles in an oven set to 200 °F to keep warm while you cook the rest of the waffles and prepare the caramelized apples, but this is not necessary!
    4. Once the waffles are done, make the caramelized apples.
    5. In a small saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of butter. Add diced apples, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Mix well. Cook for 8-10 minutes, or until apples are soft and a light brown color. Taste and adjust cinnamon as needed. Take off heat and set aside.
    6. If making these into churro bites: add cinnamon and coconut sugar to a small mixing bowl. In a separate mixing bowl, melt the butter. Brush waffles with melted butter and working in batches, carefully dip the waffles into the cinnamon sugar mixture until the waffles are well coated.
    7. Serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup!
