I have fond memories of meeting my grandmother on Manhattan's Upper East Side for the best Belgian waffles in town. The narrow, hole-in-the-wall diner had the most enormous waffle makers I had ever seen.
The size of your waffles will depend on your waffle iron, too, and there are many to choose from. My latest model has a nonstick surface, but if you're not into that, there are waffle makers that have cast-iron surfaces. While I don't need to grease mine, I usually give it a quick rub of butter or oil before I begin. It's also a good idea to fully warm up the iron to ensure that the first waffle is just as good as the next. To crisp your cooked waffles, place them in a dehydrator or oven at 150 ° F/ 65 ° C for up to 30 minutes.

1 cup blanched almond flour (or other nut flour)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp honey

1. Preheat your waffle iron on a medium setting. Grease as needed, or according to the manufacturer's directions.

2. Place the almond flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon (if using) in a mixing bowl. Blend together using a whisk.

3. Add the eggs, vanilla, and honey and whisk until well blended.

4. Pour about 1/ 4 cup batter into the heated waffle maker (more or less, depending on your waffle iron) and close the lid.

5. When the waffle is ready, transfer it to a plate and add your favorite topping. Seal and store any extra waffles in the refrigerator for a few days, or freeze them for up to a month or so.

Makes: 6 to 8 waffles, depending on your waffle maker
