Sourdough Waffles

This is a great base to start with. If you want plain waffles, leave as-is. If you want to add flax or chia seed, throw it in :)

1 cup all purpose flour or whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp granulated stevia (or 1 tbs sugar or honey)
1 cup sourdough starter
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
approx. 1 cup milk or almond milk
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, and/or your favorite toppings for serving

Preheat waffle iron. Mix dry ingredients in medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. If you need more or less milk to make a manageable batter, do so. It should pour easily. Grease hot waffle iron with coconut oil. Pour batter into iron and cook according to your iron's instructions. Serve hot with plenty of butter and a small drizzle of maple syrup, or with fresh fruit, or however you like them. Make it more nutritious and get some protein by serving with pastured eggs or topping with plain yogurt. Makes approximately 4-5 servings.

These freeze extremely well. They are great to have in the freezer to pull out and pop in the toaster in the morning for a quick breakfast.


  1. I've been putting off getting a waffle iron because of lack of space in the kitchen. But if I can include anything sourdough and coconut in a recipe (I would also replace the almond milk with coconut milk!) I think it's time to give in ;)

  2. Hi Jane and thanks for your comment! I do use whatever milk I have on hand for these, so yes, coconut milk would be great! My waffle iron is this really cool vintage one that has cast iron plates that flip around to make either waffles or a flat griddle for pancakes. It used to be my parents :)
