Whole Wheat Coconut Waffles

4.1 from 9 reviews

Crispy coconut waffles made with 100% whole wheat flour. This delicious coconut waffle recipe is easy to make, too! Recipe yields about 3 1/2 Belgian waffles.

coconut waffles and cranberry sauce



  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar).
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (egg, coconut milk, coconut oil and vanilla extract).
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. The batter will be a little lumpy, which is fine.
  5. Cook the waffles as directed by the waffle iron manufacturer.


Recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour’s recipe for whole wheat waffles.
Note on fat content: Since light coconut milk has a higher fat content than low fat cow’s milk, I suspect you could reduce the amount of coconut oil to 1/4 cup. Remember, though, waffles need enough fat or they won’t get crispy (source: On Food and Cooking). Nobody likes a soggy waffle!
