If you are looking to turn traditional waffles into a grain free paleo treat, this recipe made with coconut flour is for you!
I created this one on a hot Sunday morning in Laguna Beach, when I was setting up a quick home made brunch that was healthier that the waffles you get when you eat out in a restaurant.
I feel like making your own food is always the best option to maintain your healthy eating habit, so most of the time I prefer to eat at home and only grab a drink when I am out.
These paleo waffles are a winner: they are free from grains, dairy and eggs and they have a delicious flavor given by the naturally sweet flavor of the coconut and tigernut flour.
Tigernut flour has a nutty taste that, combined with the delicious hint of coconut flour, allows you to keep the amount of maple syrup on the low end.
The Waffle Machine I used is this one, it’s non stick and it works perfectly without brushing the plates with any extra oil!!
Here’s your recipe. It’s quick, easy and a great relief for those that are trying to eat grain free and don’t want to give up a nice waffle brunch!
Grain Free – Paleo Waffles with Coconut Flour
- For the Grain Free Waffles
