This recipe does not turn out as shown in pictures. The batter is super liquid and waffles are extremely fragile.
Would really prefer there were more details added to recipe with time required and texture expected.

Hi! Thank you for giving me your feedback. There could be 2 reasons for this: the brand of almond flour used from person to person could make a difference, as well as each one's waffle maker and its settings.
That being said, you could definitely bump up the quantity of flour, or add a tablespoon of AP flour if you feel like there isn't enough binding in the batter.
In all honesty, it's also to do with the angle of this photo; my waffles were pretty floppy too! I hope you liked the waffles though, and that this helps :)
