Dark Chocolate Dipped Waffle Cones {Paleo, Grain-Free & Gluten-Free}

Paleo Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Dipped Waffle Cones

There’s nothing better than ice cream served up in a crispy waffle cone. But when you’re Paleo or Gluten-Free, healthy ice cream cones are few and far between. Surprisingly, making ice cream cones at home is very easy, but you will need a Waffle Cone Maker to make the cone-making magic happen.


And of course, you can make your homemade waffle cones completely GRAIN-FREE – suitable for both Paleo & Gluten-Free diets!

The batter is simplicity itself: just a few ingredients mixed together, made into a thin waffle and rolled up into cones…which is the fun part!

The batter recipe can easily be doubled, allowing for a few practice cones, which may come in handy your first time making them.  To roll the cones, you may wish to wear clean rubber gloves or use a tea towel, since the just-baked cookies may be too warm for you to handle with bare hands.

Then dip them into melted dark chocolate for a decadent treat!

Servings: 6 cones



  • Preheat a waffle cone maker to medium heat.
  • In your blender, combine the eggs, coconut sugar, almond flour, arrowroot starch, tapioca starch, butter, vanilla, and salt and blend on high until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • Fill a ¼-cup dry measuring cup with batter and pour into the center of your preheated waffle cone maker (don’t scrape out the extra batter from the cup, just keep refilling and pouring until the end, and then scrape). Cook for 1 minute, and then check for a light brown color; cook for an additional 20 to 40 seconds, if necessary, and/or adjust the setting according to the manufacture’s instructions if the cones are getting too dark or not cooking fast enough.
  • Quickly remove the waffle from the maker and place on a clean dish towel. Use the cloth to help lift and roll the waffle cone around the cone form. Hold the cone for a few seconds to cool into shape, then transfer to a cone holder or set in a tall glass to cool completely. Repeat until all the batter is used.
  • Melt the chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler. Dip the top of the cones into the melted chocolate. Place the cones back in the cone holder or glasses to allow the chocolate to cool and harden. 6 Waffle cones will keep in an airtight container for up to a week. Fill with ice cream of your choice and enjoy!
