I’m going to be honest: what I miss most by living a Paleo lifestyle is warm bread. Especially things like french toast, warm table bread for dipping, and waffles. So imagine my glee when I found this recipe in Against All Grain for Paleo blueberry waffles. True to CaveMama style, this recipe is EASY and fairly quick.
You will need a waffle maker for it, but everything else is standard Paleo pantry staples. If you don’t like blueberries just leave them out. I like to make plain waffles and actually have them at lunch with turkey or chicken, tear them up into bite size pieces and have with a salad or with nut butter on them as a snack. They have just enough sweetness to curb a sweet tooth, but still pair well with savory foods too.
The eggs need to be at room temperature, so take them out about a half-hour before you are ready to make the recipe.
Follow the instructions-it’s super easy-dump all ingredients, except blueberries, in a blender.
I think what’s still amazing to me about using coconut flour is how much it expands when cooked. There are only 3 tablespoons of coconut flour in this whole recipe.
Here’s a warning for you: this recipe yields 4-6 waffles, but there didn’t seem enough to make a second batch, so I poured ALL the batter into the waffle maker (to make 4 waffles) and it was too much! It squirted out everywhere and was a complete mess. So definitely make a smaller second batch, which may only yield two waffles, but it’s better than the mess I created! They still turned out pretty and tasted AMAZING!
- 3 large eggs at room temperature
- ½ cup coconut milk
- 3 TBS honey or maple syrup (I used maple syrup)
- 3 TBS coconut oil, melted
- ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup raw cashews or macadamia nuts (I used cashews)
- 3 TBS coconut flour
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp sea salt, fine
- ½ cup blueberries
- preheat waffle iron to lowest setting
- place all ingredients in a blender in the order listed, except for blueberries
- Blend on low for 30 seconds, then increase to high and continue blending until completely smooth.
- spoon batter into waffle iron, filling halfway and spreading batter evenly. Sprinkle a handful of blueberries over the batter
- close the lid and cook for 45 seconds to 1 minute, until steam stops rising from the waffle maker and waffles easily release with a fork.
