  • 2 c white whole wheat flour or 1-for-1 gluten-free flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp turmeric see below for more info
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 pinch cardamom
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 tbsp olive oil or butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 c milk cow, nut, coconut, hemp, etc.
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Heat a waffle iron on medium.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and cardamom.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, milk and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of waffle batter onto each waffle mold and cook according to your waffle irons directions.
  • Let cool slightly and serve.


Spices for Baby – You may want to reduce the quantities of the spices above if your baby is 9 months and under or if your kiddo hasn’t had the chance to taste the bold flavors of turmeric, ginger and cardamom before. The quantities I would recommend reducing to are as follows: 2 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger powder, pinch of cardamom.
Freeze and Reheat – you can absolutely freeze any leftovers waffles. To reheat simply pop a frozen waffle into the toaster or toaster oven and toast until warm.
