  • 1 cup Paleo Baking Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar*
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda*
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil, or your favorite paleo-friendly fat
  • 1 tablespoon honey, or your favorite paleo-friendly sweetener
  • *Or substitute 3/4 teaspoon paleo-friendly baking powder


  1. Prepare and preheat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s directions.
