Cauliflower Waffles You Can Top With Just About Anything

These cauliflower waffles are just fun and pretty much guilt free. The idea developed while I was looking for ways to increase vegetables at meals other than dinner. Focusing on breakfasts and quick lunches that didn’t involve a salad, I went for something that could be topped with just about anything and came up with waffles that use flax meal instead of flour.

I did say “pretty much guilt free.” That’s because you can top these yummy waffles with just about anything – savory or sweet. So feel free to pick and choose! In the video, I did a bacon avocado waffle (but feel free to choose a leaner meat) then another with sliced bananas and almond butter. Here are some other combos to try …

  • Hummus & Cucumber
  • Peanut Butter & Apple slices
  • Smoked Salmon w/ Honey Mustard & Goat Cheese
  • Scrambled Egg & Green Chile

Cauliflower Waffles Recipe
Serves 6-8


  • 1 head – Cauliflower, raw
  • 4 eggs, large
  • 2 oz – Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1/2 cup – Brown Flax Meal
  • 1 tsp – Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp – Coarse Kosher Salt

Break cauliflower into florets.

Cut large stems into smaller pieces.

Combine cauliflower, eggs, flax, salt, and baking powder in food processor.

Process until florets are broken and a batter is created.

Add cheese and pulse to mix.

Spray waffle iron. Test cook one waffle on med/high setting to make sure interior cooks but exterior does not burn.

Let waffles cool slightly and release steam before eating.
