These are healthy and simple to prepare. This waffle recipe is made with coconut flour and flax meal and are gluten-free.
I wanted to make these waffles for a while now, but I couldn’t find my waffle maker! I guess that shows you how long it’s been since I’ve made waffles. I usually just make pancakes, but my kids really like waffles so I literally searched all over my (small) house. It was nowhere. And that really bummed me out. I got it as an engagement gift almost 15 years ago. It was a beauty. The big belgian waffle maker from William Sonoma. Sigh. It was gone. Luckily, I have a bunch of friends who were kind enough to search for THEIR waffle makers they got for their engagements/weddings and borrowed one of theirs. I’m so happy I did, because waffles are awesome.
Coconut Blueberry Waffles
- 2 Whole eggs and 2 egg whites
- 3 Tablespoons melted coconut oil or you can use melted butter
- 3 Tablespoons coconut milk or reduced fat or whole milk
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 3 Tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/3 cup ground flax
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup blueberries
Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature. I prefer crispier waffles.
Using a wire whisk, mix together eggs, coconut oil (or melted butter), milk, maple syrup and sea salt.
Continuing to whisk, add the baking powder and coconut flour until thoroughly mixed. Add the cinnamon, flax and vanilla. Stir to combine.
Add blueberries and stir gently.
Spray waffle iron with generous amount of organic cooking spray.
Spoon 4-5 tablespoons of batter onto waffle iron and close until shut.
Cook according to the waffle iron's instructions.
Remove from waffle iron and place on wire rack until ready to eat.
Top with additional fresh blueberries, powdered sugar or 100% maple syrup if desired.
I usually keep homemade pancakes (and now waffles) in the freezer since they are so much healthier than many of the store bought kinds. When you make these, make a double or triple batch and freeze them to make morning breakfast a whole lot easier.
