Good morning! How are we today? Firstly, I want to wish all the RD’s out there and soon-to-be RD’s Happy Registered Dietitian Nutritionist day. It’s a happy day in our profession!
Today, I’m just here to share a waffle recipe I’m currently obsessed with and I alluded to a few weeks back. I made some tweaks and decided that these are perfectttt. I’m linking up with Annmarie, Farrah, Esther and Jess! Check out their delicious pages and recipes for Foodie Friday!
I love my pancakes, but I’ve always been a waffle girl at heart. Growing up, I would eat Ego’s every day before school. Yep, every day. I would eat them and watch Bobby’s World. Does anyone remember that show?
I was in complete bliss, and inherently ignorant to all the preservatives, artificial flavorings and other crap that was in those Ego’s, but boy did I worship them with my sugar-laden syrup. Looking back, this breakfast was void of any form of protein, and was all high glycemic carbs. Woo hoo (NOT).
They’re a nice change of pace when I have that extra time. Plus you can basically make them out of anything these days if you need flourless versions! I appreciate that versatility. But sometimes, I want something a little more dense than pancakes. Something a little heartier. Where my bluebs and syrup can stay put in the creases. Sometimes toppings just fall all over the place with pancakes. #Amirite? At least my bluebs can stay put for a hot minute on these while I try to take a picture of my drippy PB. #Foodbloggerproblems.
So when I dug out this waffle/panini maker that I’ve had for years (but hadn’t located until recently), I knew I had to try my hand at some waffles. Waffles have that thickness and density that pancakes can’t compete with. Sorry, ‘cakes. I still love ya though.
These aren’t heavy and thick like a belgian waffle (because of the softer coconut flour), but they sure do taste like a waffle. I actually like the softer, coconut flour consistency. These are fudgey and as goo-ey as a waffle can get. These are SO GOOD with peanut butter and cocoa nibs, you guys. They taste like chocolate brownies with little chocolate chips. Except the cocoa nibs are more nutrient dense! Win!
Are you a pancakes or waffles person?
What toppings would you add to these waffles?
