Fun w/ Food Friday!!!

Welcome to week #2 of Fun w/ Food Friday! So happy with how many of you linked up last week :) Thanks for participating!

This week I am featuring Lisa @ The Nourishing Homemaker. She is sharing a DELICIOUS recipe for Coconut Waffles that are gluten free. I know that many people are doing gluten free diets now and this recipe looks WONDERFUL!


Here is what Lisa has to share today:


I was amazed this morning when I got up and made these waffles for my kids! When I found the recipe I was a little skeptical. 1/4 cup of flour for 8 waffles???? I don't think so! They turned out wonderful! The waffles were a beautiful golden brown and I bet the leftovers will crisp up nicely in the toaster oven.
Gluten free flour, especially grain free flour like almond and coconut, can be expensive. I love that so little coconut flour is used. Eggs are a frugal source of protein and with almost 1 eggs per waffle, this breakfast is a healthy, thrifty way to start the day.

I have done a lot of searching to find coconut flour at a better price than Whole Foods ($9 per lb.). Amazon.com does have the best price that I have seen for Coconut Flour. It's $4.18 per pound and if you order two packs, you'll have enough for Free Shipping. I don't often directly promote something like this, but I thought I'd pass it along to those who use coconut flour a lot.

Note: to make them dairy free use coconut oil rather than butter as suggested.


RECIPE:

Coconut Flour Waffle Recipe

Makes approximately 8 waffles, I usually double this recipe so that I have leftovers to use as sandwich bread the next day.

Ingredients:
  • 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil, butter, or ghee
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 2-4 tablespoons pureed apple, pumpkin, banana, pear, or other mix in (optional- the waffles pictured above are pumpkin)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Directions:
Preheat waffle iron (I always use high), grease generously with coconut oil or ghee. Mix all ingredients until smooth. Pour batter onto waffle iron, and using a butter knife or the back of a spoon, spread the batter to evenly distribute over the iron. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter, keeping cooked waffles covered with foil in a 200 degree oven to keep warm if you wish.

Thanks, Lisa for sharing with us today!!! Stop by her blog The Nourishing Homemaker and say hi. She has some DELICIOUS stuff over there :)
