Must have waffles

Off topic! Have you ever seen the movie Must Have Dogs? With Diane Cusack and Diane Lane? It is a great movie about two people who find each other quite by accident and to spite themselves cannot get out of their own way to be together…. I have this similar relationship with carbs. We love each other but we just cant get it together! lol!

Ok, but for real, one thing that you need in your breakfast recipe line up is a good waffle recipe. The bad this is that once you make the decision to become a more healthier you, you tend to have to find a new acceptable recipe. Have no fear!!! Ashley is here! Your trusty mountain climbing partner with an amazing recipe for you.

These waffles are dairy free, gluten free and 21 Day Fix approved. (Oooooo AAAAaaa) They are also kid approved, which is the true test!! They are also quite filling! I topped mine with some pure maple syrup and they were amazing. The waffles are not very sweet by themselves but the addition of the syrup makes all the difference. I let my waffles sit for a minute to let the syrup soak in and it was literally the best thing EVER! Other ideas for toppings: chocolate chips, blueberries, strawberries, peanut butter! yum yum yum!

 

If you have never cooked or baked with coconut flour, it is a little different than regular flour. Coconut flour soaks up a lot of water so when you go to start making the batter you might think that there is too much liquid, finish making it and double check right before you go to pour the batter into the waffle iron.
