Why TheseWaffles are a Nutritional Powerhouse
We believe in starting the day on the right foot, and these gluten-free coconut waffles are designed to do just that. Not only are they irresistibly delicious, but they also come packed with essential nutrients to fuel your morning. Here's why these waffles are a nutritional powerhouse:
1. Gluten-Free Goodness
Gluten-free living is more than just a trend; it can be a game-changer for those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease. By using gluten-free coconut flour, we ensure that everyone can enjoy these delectable waffles without worrying about digestive discomfort.
2. Coconut Flour Benefits
Coconut flour is a treasure trove of goodness. It's high in fiber, which helps support digestion and keeps you feeling full and satisfied. Additionally, it's rich in healthy fats that provide lasting energy and promote overall well-being. Embrace the tropical touch while reaping the benefits of this versatile and nutrient-dense flour.
3. Nutrient-Rich Toppings
Our toppings take these waffles to a whole new level of nourishment. Fresh blueberries add a burst of antioxidants and vitamins, while Greek yogurt provides a protein punch that'll keep you going throughout the day. A sprinkling of coconut shreds delivers healthy fats and a touch of crunch, and a dusting of cinnamon adds warmth and flavor. Drizzle with organic maple syrup for a natural, unrefined sweetener, and top it all off with bananas, brimming with potassium and natural sweetness.
(makes 4-6 waffles)
- 1 cup gluten-free coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup coconut milk (or any milk alternative)
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
- 1 tablespoon honey (or your preferred sweetener)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup chocolate chips (optional, because who doesn't love a touch of indulgence?)
1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free coconut flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt until everything is evenly combined.
2. In another bowl, whisk the eggs until they're frothy and inviting. Add in the coconut milk, melted coconut oil, honey (or your preferred sweetener), and vanilla extract. Mix until you have a smooth and irresistible concoction.
3. Gently pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients, stirring with love and care until you get a heavenly batter. Let it sit for a few moments to allow the coconut flour to absorb all the goodness.
4. Preheat your waffle iron and, if you're feeling generous (which we're sure you are!), give it a light brush of coconut oil to avoid any sticking surprises.
5. Pour the batter onto the preheated waffle iron, using the suggested amount by your waffle iron manufacturer to avoid any overflow mishaps.
6. Close the lid and let the magic happen! Cook for ~7 minutes or until you lift and see their golden/brown.
7. When they're ready, transfer those beauties onto a waiting plate.
The best part is here – topping your waffles with all the deliciousness you can find! Load them up with fresh blueberries, a generous dollop of Greek yogurt, coconut shreds, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Drizzle with organic maple syrup for that perfect touch of sweetness, and top it all off with slices of bananas for added creaminess and nutrients.
There you have it! A delightful combination of coco-nutty goodness and nourishment, designed to make your mornings extra special. Whether you're gluten-sensitive or simply looking to explore new flavors, these waffles are a scrumptious way to start your day.
