Recipe: Paleo Banana Waffles

Finding alternatives to our usual breakfast fare was the most challenging aspect of going grain-free. That being said, when we served this recipe to non-Paleo folks, they didn't even know the difference. This waffle recipe is our version of one that comes from The Wholesome Home.

Paleo Banana Waffles (makes 2.5 waffles)
3 Tblsp coconut flour
3 Tblsp almond or other nut flour
1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 ripe bananas, mashed
3 eggs
1 Tblsp coconut oil or clarified butter, melted

Pre-heat waffle iron. Mash the bananas in a medium sized bowl. Add the eggs and melted coconut oil and mix. Stir in the almond flour and cinnamon. Sift the remaining ingredients: coconut flour, baking powder and baking soda and stir gently to remove any lumps. Add the batter to the waffle iron and cook until it stops steaming or the waffle iron lid can be opened without pulling the waffle apart.

We like to eat these topped with the Saskatoon berries we picked last summer and coconut cream. They're equally good slathered in butter and maple syrup, if you're into that sort of thing.

These are pretty yummy. I couldn't make them crispy but they were good-like banana bread. I made enough to freeze for breakie at work. Thanks so much for posting this. I really like them.
