  1. Can I use Almond flour and coconut sugar?

    1. I would suggest using all purpose gluten-free flour because almond flour can be tricky with this recipe and yes coconut sugar works wonderfully!!!

    2. Love them. But I added salt because this recipe needs salt.

      1. Thanks for letting me know! And yes!!! Looks like I forgot to add the salt measurements I’ll get that on there. Xo

  2. 5 stars
    These were so good! My husband asked if we could have them for breakfast and lunch everyday this week lol!

    1. 😂 this makes me so happy! Thanks for coming back to let me know they are very husband approved.

      1. Looks super yummy!

        Are the calories counted per waffle or for the whole 4 waffles?

        Thank you for the recipe <3

        1. Hi Mira! The calories are per waffle. They are definitely more of a treat for breakfast 😊 enjoy!
