Sooo tasty especially with a handful of strawberries and a drizzle of maple syrup!

Ingredients:

makes 4 waffles

– 1 cup flour, any you prefer, but I only had all-purpose 😦

– 2 tsp. baking powder

– 1/4 tsp. salt

– 1 cup milk (I used coconut milk)

– 1/4 cup olive oil

-1/4 cup maple syrup (or any sweetener)

– 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

– 1 flax egg (or 1 regular egg)

*see below on how to make a flax egg

**to make these paleo waffles use a combination of tapioca starch and coconut flour and coconut milk

 

Directions:

1. Preheat your waffle maker to a medium setting (for crispier waffles, heat on high). If you decide to use a flax egg, proceed to step 2. If you are using a regular egg, skip step 2.

2. Make your flax egg by getting 1 tbs. flax seed and grinding it in a blender to make flaxmeal.

This is what your flaxmeal should look like once it’s done.

Now combine 1 tbs. flaxmeal with 3 tbs. water and stir it. Put it in the fridge for around 15 minutes.

Before & After putting it in the fridge. See how its all gooey and thick in the after picture. That’s what you want! It’s kinda the same consistency as a regular egg.

3. Combine all your dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder) in a bowl and mix.

4. Add your wet ingredients to the bowl and mix until the batter is smooth and silky (haha that sounds like something in a shaving commercial)

5. Okay, now MAKE SURE TO SPRAY YOUR WAFFLE MAKER WITH OIL! This is so inportant so your waffles don’t stick to the pan. I forgot to spray it the first time and well… it ended pretty badly. I mean i almost burned myself trying to pry the waffle off 😮

6. Scoop about a half a cup of batter onto your wafflemaker and cook until the waffles are a golden brown

7. Top with fruits, whipped cream, maple sryup, powdered sugar…the possibilities are endless!
