Chestnut Flour Waffles (grain-free)

I would marry these waffles!!

Chestnut Flour Waffles

2 cups chestnut flour

1 cup arrowroot flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/2 teaspoon real salt

2 pastured eggs

2/3 cup coconut oil liquified

3/4 cup non dairy milk or filtered water

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

*cinnamon would be a wonderful addition


These waffles have a subtle sweet flavor and turned up to the highest setting on my waffler, came out prefectly crisp on the outside and perfectly fluffy on the i side. And that earthy, sweet flavor of the chestnut flour makes them taste enough to be enjoyed on the go just on their own without even needing any extra toppings or “fluff”. I *may* have devoured one from the stacking plate before it made it to the breakfast table. But, Noone was watching so it’s your word against mine ;).


Chestnut flour is kind of sticky, so you can use a hand mixer for ease, or just whisk everything throughly until it comes together and is smooth.  I usual add the dry ingredients in first and then stir in the wet ingredients as a rule of thumb.

I used this chestnut flour and it worked beautifully, both for the cake I made and these waffles. I will definitely be using it again. It is not a cheap flour, but, in my opinion, is totally worth the splurge for special treats! ♡


Hope you enjoy these!
