  • 1/2 c. chickpea flour
  • 1/4 c. rice flour use 1/4 c. more chickpea flour to make it grain-free
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/8 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. sea salt
  • heaping 1/4 t. cinnamon
  • 2 t. coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. dairy-free milk
  • 1/4 c. 100% pure apple juice water, or more milk
  • 2 T. oil grapeseed, coconut, and olive all work great
  • 8 drops of liquid stevia or two more teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 t. vanilla


  • Begin preheating your waffle maker.
  • Mix your dry ingredients in a bowl (flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, coconut sugar).
  • In another bowl, mix your wet ingredients (egg, milk, juice/water/milk, oil, stevia (if using), and vanilla).
  • Whisk everything together until there are no lumps (the batter is fairly thin).
  • Spray your waffle maker with a thin layer of oil (I use my Misto for this).
  • Ladle a good 1/4 cup of batter for each waffle (I like setting 3 for cooking).
  • Repeat five times.
  • Serve immediately!
