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 :).

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…

21 Day Squat Challenge - #21DaysOfSquats

Welcome to the 4th annual Squat Challenge! 


**BY POPULAR DEMAND WE ARE DOING THE SQUAT CHALLENGE AGAIN ON FEBRUARY 1ST 2019**




Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice. I could sit here and tell you how squatting makes you stronger, more conditioned, firms your legs and butt, improves digestion, increases energy and mood, but I'm sure you know the endless amount of benefits. A few people who've participated in the past squat challenges chose to share their experiences which I've shared below.

 So let's just get to squatting! Beginners are welcomed! Join our Challenge Today here and read the easy rules below! 

Do you plan on doing more than the Squat Challenge? If you want a workout plan... hundreds of people in Lauren's Playground will be doing programs like Upper Body Bliss and the Tushy Toning Transformation in conjunction with the 21 Day Squat Challenge. This year we will have a RESET program that coincides well with the Squat Challenge.…
