Today I am posting an amazing homemade waffle recipe. Eating low carb has helped me reduce inflammation and bloating. I never really had an allergy to anything in particular, but I do notice that my body does not function at its best after eating a meal heavy in starchy carbs. Hip and low back pain also tends to get worse if your body is inflamed after eating certain foods.
Lately, I have been seriously committed to reducing grains from my nutrition. I have not eliminated them entirely, because I think trying to eliminate anything is a recipe for failure – unless you are allergic of course. At the same, time I do want to consume them when I need to fuel my body after an intense workout. But from my experience, every time I try to convince myself to not eat something, I end up eating even more of it. What you resist persists..learnt that the hard way.
“Reduction” has been a power word for me when it comes to food. When I tell my brain that I am only “reducing” it actually doesn’t fight me that hard. It creates this anticipation feeling vs cravings or deprivation.
Before I jump to the recipe, I want to include a short list of ingredients I have been using to substitute grains I have “reduced” in my nutrition. and by grains I mean all types of wheat and oat. The only exception is if I am eating out (can’t really tell if they use wheat sometimes), or at a social gathering where I have no choice but eat whatever I’m being served (ugh).
PS: I have personally used all the products I list below 🙂
Almond Flour : I use almond flour for almost most of my recipes.
Walnut flour: A substitute for almond flour or can be used together
Organic Coconut Flour : If you have nuts allergies, or following the Autoimmune protocol diet. I use this about 2-3 times a week to make pancakes.
Organic Flax Seed flour: I don’t use this often, but it is a nice addition to waffles or pizza crust.
Brown Rice Flour: I use this usually after I oil a pan that is going in the oven. I also add some of it if I make home made pizza.
Spelt Flour, whole grain flour: Hardly use this, but if I NEED to, I’d use organic whole grain spelt flour.Need a low carb, anti-inflammatory waffle recipe? try this one today!

Homemade waffle recipe
- 2 whole eggs
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 drops of vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp stevia
- 1 cup of almond flour
- Mix everything together
- Add the almond flour as needed
- Sprinkle some additional stevia on top of the waffle
Feel free to use your preferred sweetener. I like to use stevia but you can also use sugar alcohol like xylitol.
Now, if you don’t have a waffle maker, you can turn this into pancakes haha. I kid you not, I have done this many times and they turn out super delicious. You will need more coconut oil for the pan is all. I hope you try this recipe out and let me know how it turned out for you.
