  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs*
  • 1 cup milk any kind
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Handful of Diamond Nut Toppings


  • Melt coconut oil them set aside, giving it a few minutes to cool to room temperature.
  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt together.
  • Add eggs, syrup, melted oil, and water to the bowl and stir to combine, either by hand or with an electric mixer.
  • Grease your waffle iron according to the manual's instructions; then, pour batter into the waffle iron and cook waffles until the light goes off and says they're done. Repeat this process until the batter is gone. I was able to get 3 large waffles out of this recipe, so if you want more simply double the recipe.
  • Top waffles with nut toppings, butter, fruit, yogurt--whatever your heart desires.
  • Enjoy!


*You can sub flax eggs if you want to keep these waffles vegan-friendly. Simply combine 2 tbsp flaxseed meal with 5 tbsp water in a bowl, stir, then allow 10 minutes for the mixture to form into "eggs".
-Serving size varies depending on the size of your waffle iron
