Easy Coconut Waffles – Taste Great And Healthy
One of the things I always tell people is no diet will work if you cut out all the things you love. The trick is to make things you love healthier. That is exactly what this quick and easy coconut waffles recipe by George Bryant of Civilized Caveman does. I will usually make a double batch then just microwave them. I also eat a few pieces of baked uncured smoked applewood bacon.
1 banana (143 grams)
1 apple, peeled and cored (141 grams)
1 cup almond butter (260 grams)
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (Can use coconut flour 1:1)
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
coconut oil for greasing waffle iron
1 can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight (only thick white stuff, not the water)
1 tablespoon honey
Puree apple and banana in a food processor.
Whip almond butter on high for 2-3 minutes until smooth and fluffed using hand mixer.
Add puree and remaining ingredients to whipped almond butter and continue to whip until combined.
Grease your hot waffle maker for every waffle you make.
Use about 1 ladle of batter per 8-by-4-inch waffle onto hot waffle iron for 3-5 minutes until browned. Do not fill up entire waffle maker, leave about 1/3 unfilled so that the batter can spread.
Eat immediately or store flat in freezer and make your own breakfast by reheating in toaster – the waffles will be firm enough!
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer whisk coconut milk (only the thick white stuff, not the water) on high for 3 minutes
Add honey and whisk for an additional 3 minutes.
Serve over waffles and enjoy
I have not tried substituting the banana or the nut butter. It is probably possible I just did not test it.
