We don’t go to the effort of making waffles frequently, but the Wee Man saw the waffle maker a few days ago and has been asking for waffles. It took a few days, but we finally pulled out the machine and adapted a bunch of recipes into one we felt good about (that yields these scrumptious and fluffy treats). Then we made them again a week later… with enough extras to freeze for the future.

I recently learned that not all organic cassava flours are created equal. I typically use the Terrasoul brand, but amazon is out of it right now, so I ordered Anthony’s brand. Anthony’s isn’t ground as finely and absorbs more water than Terrasoul’s cassava flour. That’s why you’ll see a different amount of liquid for each of those brands.

This batch makes 9-10 round Belgian waffles in my machine, but that would of course depend on your machine. Even still, one of these is VERY filling, so depending on your appetite or what else you’re eating, these may go further than that.

You can reduce the calories and fat content by substituting melted butter for the melted coconut oil, but since waffles (and pancakes) are normally sweetened, using coconut oil adds a nice sweetness.

You can top these with whatever you want. David makes a sandwich out of his with some bacon or sausage in the middle. I’m partial to butter and maple syrup, but I do occasionally whip up some maple butter (soften the butter then whip it with maple syrup). The wee man likes his plain, with maple syrup, with peanut butter and bananas, and probably any other way he can think of.

Step by step method

  • 1. Separate eggs & whisk with electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside in large bowl.

  • 2. Whisk together milk, vanilla, egg yolks, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, & cooled (but still liquid) coconut oil (if you melt it and put it in hot it can curdle the eggs & milk).

  • 3. Gently fold the batter and egg whites together until combined.

  • 4. Make according to waffle machine instructions.

    5. To keep the first ones warm while cooking the entire batch, place in oven at 200 degrees F.

    6. If making extras to freeze, cool individually on cooling rack.

For the past 20+ years, I've been cooking to accommodate a variety of food preferences, allergies, and styles. Lately, I've been working on paleo breads and baking with cassava flour since we've realized it's sooooooo much easier to send The Wee Man to preschool with sandwiches in his lunch.
