Almond flour cinnamon waffles with an easy homemade berry-orange topping.



Berry Compote:

  • 1 ½ cups fresh or frozen berries
  • ¾ cup orange juice (or water)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Almond Waffles:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place the berries, orange juice and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook 7-10 minutes or until mixture is slightly reduced. Whisk in the cornstarch and cook another 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Set aside.
  2. Heat a waffle iron to medium heat.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until combined. Set aside.
  4. In another medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, almond butter and oil and butter until pale in color. Whisk in the milk and vanilla extract until incorporated. Fold the wet ingredients in the bowl with the dry ingredients until incorporated.
  5. Place the egg whites in the empty bowl. Use a hand mixer set on high to beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter until incorporated.
  6. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray. Scoop 1/3 cup batter into the waffle maker and use the back of the measuring cup to spread the batter in an even layer. Close the waffle iron and cook 5-6 minutes or until waffle is set and lightly browned. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  7. Serve almond waffles with berry compote.


Storage Tip: Make waffles in advance and store them in an airtight container or Ziplog bag for up to 2 months.
