Simple & Healthy Vanilla Coconut Waffles

Do you ever find yourself browsing Pinterest for a healthy recipe only to feel overwhelmed because:

  • a) most recipes seem to be made by professional chefs
  • b) the recipe contains too many ingredients, some expensive or hard to find
  • c) it takes too long to make
  • d) there are so many recipes that you get kind of numb to them…seriously
  • e) all of the above

Listen, I’ll be honest.  I only cook healthy food, but often I’m looking for a recipe and letter E above is how I’ll feel – overwhelmed with recipes that require decent culinary skills, take at least a half hour to make, with a ton of ingredients.

The reality for me is that, as a mother with a full-time job and other pursuits in life, I need healthy food that tastes good and can be quickly made.  These waffles fit that perfectly.  There were so easy to make, even at 8:00 a.m.

Coconut Waffles

(makes four thick waffles)

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 T melted coconut oil
  • 1 T stevia
  • 1/4 c coconut flour
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder of choice
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of sea salt

Preheat a waffle maker.  Put all ingredients in a blender and blend well.  When waffle maker is heated, spray it with oil of choice.  Pour batter in and wait about four or five minutes.  That’s it!

If you don’t have protein powder, simply omit and increase the coconut flour to a 1/3 cup.

My boyfriend and I loved topping them with maple almond butter, plus he added hemp seeds as well.  My little girl had hers with organic honey.  Enjoy!
