coconut banana waffles

it's time for one of my best recipes ever! i even contemplated keeping this all to myself because it's so good, but then i couldn't help but share the goodness with you all, given the levels of happiness these would bring to each and every one of you if you make them (and i think that you should)!

coconut banana waffles!!


so rich and delicious, and just generally amazing! they don't stick to the waffle maker, and they aren't super eggy, and they actually taste really good. these were such a happy surprise - we ate them on Swedish Waffle Day (aka March 25th!) and on mother's day too...

coconut flour waffle recipe with banana:
makes 4 whole round waffles

ingredients:
2 eggs
1 banana
1 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp melted butter
1 tsp peanut butter
1.5 tsp agave nectar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 Tbsp coconut flour

 - blend all ingredients together, in the order listed, using a hand blender or food processor. until totally smooth.
 - let mix sit for 30 minutes.
 - turn on your waffle maker and continue as you would regular waffles.
 - enjoy with cream, fresh fruit, homemade fruit compote, St Dalfour jam (it's my absolute favorite!), tinned peaches/mandarin, or yogurt.

*note* - these took a little longer to cook than normal waffle mix, on a medium high heat. 

you could of course change up the flavours in this a little, by exchanging the peanut butter for any other nut butter, and you could probably change the butter for coconut oil (although that's what makes them not stick and go crispy, so i don't know how this would fare...), and you could totally use coconut milk instead of regular milk. 

i happened upon this recipe after doing a lot of googling for coconut flour waffles, and stumbling across one that didn't have a whole box of eggs in it... thanks to the healthy advocate for making me fall so much in love with coconut flour!

ps. thanks to all your responses to my previous post about easter traditions! we are currently in debate in our house about how we will be celebrating, but i think the general consensus has roast lamb, German easter tree and a bonfire way up the list

  5. Love these! Triple the recipe, use Sunbutter vs PB, full fat coconut milk vs reg milk and honey vs agave. About a T of cinnamon and a couple grates of nutmeg - awesome! Makes 9 belgian waffle squares from my Cuisinart. My toddlers love them...so does hubby :-). Thank you!
