In our on-going adventures of finding healthy grain-free options to our favorite breakfast foods, I came up with this recipe. Grain free waffles! Pass the syrup! They are super easy to make and if you double the batch, you can freeze a ton of them! Did someone say “lego my eggo”? The cool part is that these waffles are green inside, due to a chemical reaction between the sun-butter and the baking soda….very cool! If you like, you can substitute almond butter too.


  • 3 medium banana
  • 3 medium apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 (16oz) container of sun-butter (or you can use smooth almond butter)
  • 6 medium pastured eggs
  • 3 Tbsp arrowroot powder — where to find
  • 3 Tbsp pure vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsps baking soda
  • coconut oil for greasing waffle iron


  • Puree apple and banana in a food processor
  • Use the whisk attachment on your electric mixer and whip sun-butter on high until smooth
  • Add puree and remaining ingredients to whipped sun-butter and continue to whip until combined
  • Grease your hot waffle maker with coconut oil (for each waffle you make).
  • Use about 1 ladle of batter per 8-by-4-inch waffle onto hot waffle iron for 3-5 minutes until browned. Do not fill up entire waffle maker, leave about 40% unfilled so that the batter can spread. If your waffle is soft or floppy, it’s not ready yet – keep cooking for another minute or two!
  • Eat immediately or store flat in freezer and make your own breakfast by reheating in toaster – the waffles will be firm enough
  • Makes about 2.5 dozen!

The sunbutter makes them turn green inside

    Hi, What kind of apples did you use? Also does ‘meduim’ mean ‘size’ of banana or ‘meduim ripe banana’? Thanks so much.

    I made these tonight but I used almond butter instead. They were delicious and my family liked them too! This is a first, I’ve been doing Paleo since January 1st and they have yet to eat anything I’ve made. We will make these again. After freezing them what is the best way to reheat? They won’t fit in my toaster as my waffle iron is a Belgium waffle iron.
