Coconut Flour Waffles - Gluten Free

Sundays are my days to cook a special breakfast. Special meaning something out of the ordinary for me. Meaning homemade pancakes or waffles for the family.  I refuse to buy any flour that contains gluten.  This week I wanted to try making waffles with coconut flour. These are easy to make and are ready in minutes.

 Coconut Flour Waffle Recipe

Makes 4 Waffle
Serving size - 1 Waffle

1/3 cup Coconut Flour
1/2 cup Organic Plain Almond Milk
6 Organic Free Range Eggs
1 Tbs of Olive Oil
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbs Agave
1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce

Blend together until smooth.  I use my blender when making any batter. Batter will be somewhat thicker than almond flour or oat flour.

Pour on a heated waffle iron and cook on medium.  These were a little on the dry side.  I think adding 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce will do the trick, but haven't tried it yet.

Let me know what you think.

I was looking for a good reason to buy a waffle iron. This is IT! Thank you! I didn't even know coconut flour existed. The possibilities!

Side-note: I'm now on week 2 of your kettlebell DVD. Love love love it. Finally a workout that isn't boring, that I can break up into pieces and squeeze in-between my work projects. Yay.

This looks amazing, Lauren! Thanks for posting :).

I may have to substitute oat flour since it's what I've got handy at the moment, but in any case, I hadn't been able to find a waffle recipe that looked healthy (i.e. one that didn't have tons and tons of butter LOL), so this is very much appreciated :).
