Special Notes

This paleo waffles recipe has a nice natural sweetness, however, if you want to add 1-2 tablespoons of a good sweetener like stevia or monk fruit if you want it to have more flavor.  The organic bone broth vanilla collagen is flavored with stevia and monk fruit, so if you use this product, you may enjoy the mildly sweet flavor this recipe provides.

Feel free to double this recipe and freeze them so you can just pop them in a toaster oven and enjoy them any time you like.  Great toppings for these include coconut milk or this coconut whipped cream recipe.  You can also include berries, nuts, keto maple syrup or dark chocolate syrup.

Dr Jockers Comments

These grain-free paleo waffles taste incredible and use clean, nutrient dense ingredients that reduce inflammation and support the microbiome.  This is not a keto recipe, however, as the plantains contain far too many carbs and will raise up your blood sugar and insulin levels.

This is a great recipe to enjoy as a carb up meal if you are following a carb backloading or cyclical ketogenic style nutrition plan.  Plantains contain a rich source of prebiotics that support the development of a healthy microbiome.

The collagen protein brings in minerals as well as glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and L-glutamine which all help to reduce gut inflammation and support the development of a healthy intestinal lining.  These collagen based nutrients also provide the building blocks for healthy joints, bones, skin and nails.

Feel free to throw some dark greens like spinach, kale or collards into this recipe to increase the nutrient potential without impacting the great flavor.  Try out this recipe and let us know your thoughts in the comments box below!

  1. How can you make a waffle without any flour? There are a lot of recipes in this website
    that are missing some ingredients. Don’t waste your time trying this one it will come out like mush.

    1. Hey Barbara, I am sorry to hear that the recipe didn’t work for you. Plantains are a versatile ingredient and they contain a decent amount of starch. They make for a great substitute to flour in this recipe and are a healthy option for individuals looking to avoid flour. Blessings!
