Breakfast or Dessert Waffles?!?!

Dairy free version using only coconut milk instead of whipped cream!

Coconut-Almond Flour Cake-Waffles

Is it waffles for breakfast or cake for dessert???  You decide with this versatile recipe.  The first morning I made these, they were great along side of some breakfast sausage and homemade strawberry- balsamic preserves.  My husband the said the waffles, were by far, the best yet.  The next day, I put the rest in the toaster and decided to try them with a bit of Whipped Coconut Milk (you have to try this… It really works… Use Thai Kitchen Brand).  I whipped the coconut milk and added a bit of vanilla and stevia and put it on the warm waffles and served it with sliced strawberries (with a splash of balsamic vinegar and stevia).  Strawberry Short Cake anyone?!  I was so impressed how well it held up as a cake.  My husband says he doesn’t like coconut but he couldn’t even tell the whipped “cream” was coconut milk! I was impressed! :=)

Let your kids eat dessert for breakfast! 

I am trying to increase the amount of coconut products and lessen the amount of dairy that I use, particularly if another form of “milk” can be used with the same results.  The next batch I made, I only used coconut milk and used coconut oil instead of butter.   They were divine!  The slight coconut taste was very nice with the strawberries.  

Beautiful Pancakes!

You can also make into pancakes.  I find that using a waffle maker speeds up the time it takes to prepare but pretty soon (next week when we officially move), I will probably be doing lots of pancakes on the griddle on my stove! 😉 

Make a few batches of these while you are messing up the blender and throw the extra ones in the refrigerator and pot them in the toaster.  I honestly think they are better the next day!

Coconut-Almond Flour Cake-Waffles
Yields about 15 Sand-dollar size pancakes or 9 waffles

4 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp salted butter, melted
1/4 cup coconut flour plus 2 tbsp
½ cup almond flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp Kal stevia (to taste)

Notes:  Dairy Free Version: Use 1-1/4 cup almond/coconut milk combo as well as 4 tablespoons of melted coconut oil.

  1. Blend eggs in blender for 1 minute.  You can also blend with hand mixer.
  2. Add wet ingredients.  Blend well.
  3. Add dry ingredients.  Blend well.  
  4. Heat waffle iron.  I set it on a little darker than medium.  
  5. If making waffles, spray waffle maker and measure out 1/3 cup per waffle or for pancakes.  Cook to desired brownness (I like mine brown).
  6. If making pancakes, melt 1 tsp butter/coconut oil in pan set on medium heat and measure out about 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake.  I usually can cook 3 pancakes per batch. Flip pancake when you see sides are dry.  I used 1 tsp of butter per batch. 
1 waffle:  Less than 3 carbs

    Made these this morning and loved them! Hubby said he loved the nutty flavor and even liked them more than regular pancakes. I didn't have coconut milk so I just subbed more almond milk. Will make them with coconut milk next time to compare. Thanks for a great recipe. The extras are going in the fridge for a meal later in the week.

    If anyone is wondering, using a vegan egg replacement does not work. I just made a horrible mess! The batter tasted delicious though so I was sad it didn't work. I guess it needs the eggs.

    I doubled this recipe and there were still no leftovers! That's what happens I guess when you're feeding a hungry hubby and 4 kids. We loved your recipe for blueberry syrup with the waffles. The little bit of the syrup that we had left over was used up the next day on your cheesy biscuit recipe! Yum! Thanks for all the great recipes!

    First of all. I love your blog. I’m from Mississippi and your recipes are easy, and appealing. I also love how you have food that appeals to southerners and are able to find things at my local grocery. That being said, I’m in a pinch and don’t have coconut flour. Can I use extra almond flour? If so how much? Thank you again! I bought your books off of amazon. They are wonderful!
