A couple of weeks ago I shared with you my Nutty Salted Caramel Coconut Ice Cream recipe. If you don’t remember that, or haven’t seen it yet – you MUST check it out! I am continuing my quest to eliminate white flour and white sugar from my cooking (if you need convincing as to why you should too, you HAVE to watch Hungry for Change). While I wasn’t sure if it would work, I put my Waffle Cone Express Ice Cream Cone Maker to the test with this gluten free recipe.
The results? AMAZING! I am already excited for summer… since it’s my favorite season. Now I’m even MORE excited to have this waffle cone recipe to carry me through. The next task will be to create more delicious ice cream, sherbet, and sorbet recipes to fill them with. That won’t be tough – I’m up for that challenge! Oh, and if you’re wondering how simple these cone are to make, they are crazy easy! Almost as easy as making a waffle. Only extra step is forming them around the cone (that came with the waffle maker). I will say though, because these are a healthier version, they don’t hold as strong as your typical cone will. So I would suggest eating them right away, dehydrating them for a few hours if you plan to store them longer than a day, or stacking them one on top of the other with the cone form in the center to help maintain the shape!

- 2 eggs
- 1/2 c. honey
- 2/3 c. oat flour
- 4 tbsp. butter melted & cooled
- 1/4 c. almond or coconut milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat a waffle-cone maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and honey about 1 minute. Add the flour and stir until incorporated. Lastly, add the butter, milk, and vanilla and stir just until combined.
Spoon 2-3 tablespoons batter onto the waffle-cone maker. Close the lid and cook for at least 1 minute before lifting the lid to check for doneness. Continue cooking until the desired color is reached.
Quickly remove the waffle from the waffle-cone maker and shape it around a cone roller, or mold into cone shape.
Repeat with the remaining batter. Set the cone on a cooling rack to cool.
For waffle bowls: lay warm waffle over an inverted bowl. Hold the cone for a few seconds to set its shape. Set the cone on a cooling rack to cool.
