Coconut Contentment - Fresh Strawberry and Coconut Waffles

Waffles – Breakfast Champions



So the latest staple in the Coatney household – Waffles.  They can do anything.  Except the dishes – that would be AWESOME.  But seriously – they are super versatile.  I often make a huge batch on Sundays – enough for a whole week of breakfast or a before dinner snack ;)

Easy for grab and go.  Perfect for a sandwich.  Perfect to hold up a delicious piece of fried chicken.  AND OF COURSE – perfect to have on a Saturday morning with the ones you love – all drizzled with maple syrup or honey! And if you’re like me – you love-a some fruit on top!

Aww waffles…Champions.

So – here are my two FAVORITE ways to have waffles – and following there is a soooooo easy and quick waffle recipe. :)  Get those waffle irons heatin folks!

These are super simple, of course.  Simply top a waffle or two (or three) with fresh cut strawberries and coconut flakes.

I love to add a dab of coconut oil and drizzle a bit of maple syrup on top, as well.  And of course – any fruit can be placed on waffles!

Once the fillings are about ready – Toast two waffles (I toast mine with a bit of coconut oil in our oven on broil) until beginning to crisp – 2-3 minutes.

Paleo Waffles

Prep: 5 min          Cook: 8-10 min          Serves: 2-3 (Recipe easily doubled)

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut/almond/dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • Sprinkle of sea salt
  • Optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1-2 tbsp honey

Directions:

  1. Turn your waffle maker on – read the instructions before using if you haven’t!  Know your waffle maker – and get to know it better by making lots of waffles.
  2. Put all of the ingredients in a blender (or stir by hand for a little bit of exercise).  Add the honey and vanilla if you want a sweet waffle (ideal for breakfast or brunch).
  3. Now – cook ‘em! Make sure to grease with coconut oil/ghee in between each round. For my little waffle maker – which makes two normal size square waffles – these waffles are normally done in 8-10 minutes.
  4. Now serve how ya like it! Below are my favorite ways.  I highly recommend always adding a bit of melted coconut oil or ghee on top! Just wonderful any way you have them.

*I adapted this recipe a bit from Paleo Spirit‘s Pancake Recipe.

    Yum! I was excited to see these are nut free, I just found out almonds don’t agree with me very well. I cut them out for a few days and my annoying rash went away… :-( I’m hoping it is just that I was eating them to often… We have just started working with eggs again, maybe we’ll make these for breakfast. :-)
