Last week I found myself really craving waffles. However, I have really been making an effort to eat real, nutritious, and healthy whole foods. I told myself that if I was going to make waffles, they needed to meet those requirements. That meant NO waffles from a box or a mix. Nope, I was going to make them from scratch.
So off I went, looking for a good recipe...
I ended up taking a traditional recipe, and swapping out a few ingredients. It was super easy!
First, I cracked two farm fresh eggs into a medium-sized bowl.
Then I added whole, raw goat's milk
Then came the melted extra virgin coconut oil...
Then a big spoonful of raw honey...
And a little bit of salt, cinnamon, and baking soda.
After stirring, I added a mixture of unbleached flour and baking powder...
And stirred it just until the clumps were gone.
Then I poured some into my preheated waffle iron. I use this brand of waffle iron, and definitely recommend it.
They turned out beautifully! I didn't add quite enough batter to the iron, hence the funny shape. But otherwise, they were perfect!
Here's the full recipe:
- 2 large, organic eggs
- 1 3/4 cups organic milk (preferably raw)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon honey (I used raw)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour ( both whole wheat and all-purpose work)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- toppings of your choice
I think a variety of toppings would taste great with these waffles, so use whatever you like! My favorite topping? A warmed mixture of pure maple syrup and butter. Mmmmm.....delicious!
Even Paisley wanted some...
And so did Chloe...
So go ahead, give 'em a try!
