Gluten & Dairy-Free Almond Butter Waffles And Berry Syrup Recipe



During my "get fit" adventure, I have found it quite hard to give up many of the foods that I love...and waffles is one of them!

What I love about this recipe is that it is packed full of protein, GOOD fats, no preservatives, and are gluten free...which you cannot say about most waffle recipes and packaged ones that you find in the freezer section at your local grocery store. Also, I have included a simple mixed berry topping to replace syrup, so not only are you consuming natural sugar, but you are also squeezing in some of your daily fruit requirements!


Almond Butter Waffles Ingredients :

2 Cups almond milk
2 1/2 Cup gluten-free oats
1/2 Cup almond butter
2 Tbsp stevia (powder)
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1 tbs ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder

Berry Syrup Ingredients :

2 Cups frozen berries (personally, I love mixed the best)
1 Tbs stevia (powder)


Add all of the waffle ingredients in a blender and blend for one minute. Let the batter sit for about ten minutes to allow it to thicken up. At this point I plug in my waffle iron, which is just about as old as I am, so it takes a while to warm up. Turn on the oven to 200 degrees.

Add the mixed berries and stevia in a small sauce pan and mash over medium heat. Keep on low heat until waffles are ready to be served.

Pour your waffle mixture into the iron. They are done when steam is no longer comes out from the sides of the iron. When finished with each set of waffles, place the cooked waffles on a cookie sheet and place in the oven to keep warm.


This recipe makes 8 waffles...but they are FILLING! Usually I will make another batch before I clean out my blender so that I can freeze them, that way I have breakfast ready in a matter of minutes next time! Just make sure that you cool them on a wire rack prior to freezing.




I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do! These waffles are a FAVORITE in our house. What is your favorite healthy breakfast?

  3. Sounds great! I wasn't sure using almond milk would work with waffles (sometimes you can't bake with it), but I'm happy it does. I love almond milk!

    1. I was a little skeptical at first, but my oldest child is pretty sensitive to cow's milk, so it really isn't in our fridge that often :-)

  5. This sounds really good. My son has anaphylactic reactions to all dairy, so we always make his food with either almond milk or soy milk. I like coconut milk but it tastes weird when we cook certain foods with it. Thanks for the recipe.

  8. This sounds good. I think I'd have to use sunflower butter though. I've never found almond butter without traces of peanuts. :/ I bet it will still be tasty!

    These look delicious and I have everything to make them! Isn't whey protein dairy? So if you add the whey they are no longer dairy free?
