Ingredients

  • 3 eggs lightly mixed
  • Sweetener to taste I used 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Organic Coconut Oil (melt if it's too tough to scoop)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Coconut milk * a few splashes more if needed
  • *Oil for brushing the waffle iron/maker

Topping options:

  • Fruits
  • Maple syrup honey, etc.
  • Powder sugar

Instructions

  1. Mix eggs, then add sweetener (read notes), and coconut oil, mix well then add coconut flour, following baking powder, baking soda, a pinch of salt, stir and add milk last. You might want to add more if it's too thick.
  2. Combine everything well, until the texture is smooth. The batter will be thicker than traditional waffles, but not far off.
  3. Preheat the waffle maker, brush oil on the waffle iron and scoop the batter in and pour over the waffle iron. Close the lid and wait until it is ready to open.
  4. Once waffle is done, be careful when you remove it. The texture of the waffles with coconut flour is different so they rip easily. Carefully start from one corner and remove at ones.

Recipe Notes

Use a sweetener that supports your diet. I used sugar, but let's say you'd like to use liquid stevia, so I'd suggest for you to use 1 teaspoon or to taste. As for coconut oil, you can melt the coconut oil in the pot of warm water, placing a jar in and waiting for a few minutes until it's easy for you to scoop. I said it in the directions, but I feel the need to say it again: These waffles are NOT your typical traditional waffles, they are very soft, and they rip easier than when made with all-purpose flour. You can also use low fat 'regular' milk, even soy milk would work fine. Any other add-ins: cinnamon, nutmeg, powdered ginger etc.
