Paleo Waffles? It's possible!!!
I found this recipe on the blog Jen's Gone Paleo . I wanted something yummy for a special brunch .. they were fantastic!! The original recipe came from the gluten free almond flour cookbook and called for 1/4 cup agave. I don't think they'd be edible if it had more sugar!!! But check out Jen's blog because she gives a lot of substitutions.
2 Large Eggs
1T raw honey
1 T. Vanilla Extract
1/4 C. Water
1.5 C. Blanched Almond Flour
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 T. Arrowroot Powder
1/2 Apple (I used Gala), grated
1/4 C. Shredded, Unsweetened Coconut
Grapeseed oil, for greasing
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, honey, vanilla, and water, until smooth.
Add the almond flour, salt, baking soda, arrowroot powder, and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly,
Add apple and coconut. Mix to combine.
Scoop or ladle (approximately 1/4 C.) into heated (and greased, if needed) waffle iron.
Serve with 1 T. warm maple syrup (use the real stuff). ** I thought they were so good, they didn't syrup, but what's a waffle without syrup.
The waffles cook super quick, so keep an eye on them. They'd also make good pancakes.
