Beet & Buckwheat Waffles

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour (If your family is picky about buckwheat, use more whole wheat. Slowly change the recipe until it’s more buckwheat.)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. sugar of any type
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 4-6 small beets
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter


  • Combine the dry ingredients
    • *Or, cheat and buy a buckwheat waffle mix! Just combine any water or milk with beets per the step below before adding it to the mix 🙂
  • Process milk and beets in a blender or bullet until well combined
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients
    • *At this point, you’ll have very red waffles. One of my daughters loves red, the other prefers the color purple. I simply blended some blueberries into half the batter to make purple waffles, too 🙂
  • Make into pancakes or waffles

Serving ideas

  • The first time you serve these, let them be whatever preparation your family is used to.
  • Out of the freezer, try tacos as a great snack
    • Thaw the waffle in the microwave, fridge or toaster (I like microwaving for 20 seconds then toasting for a minute)
    • Squirt some whipped cream in a line on the waffle
    • Roll like a taco and hold together with a toothpick
  • Out of the freezer, make a waffle sandwich
    • Thaw according to above instructions
    • Spread with peanut butter, sunflower butter, or thick kefir yogurt
    • Top with another waffle or add sliced fruit
