Can you believe this is the first waffle recipe I have made for the blog? Shame on me. There are just so many other great paleo waffle recipes out there that I make on a regular basis that I had no need to make my own. The only problem is that so many of the recipes rely on nut flours, which I know many of you can't have. So it was time to find a solution. And these waffles are it. These not only make a great breakfast or brunch option, but are great for snacks as well. You can also use them as a bun for sandwiches if you want to get really adventurous. And topped with the berry compote that you see in the photos. One word: yum! I inhaled these the first time I made them. Literally inhaled. Needless to say I am pretty sure you will like them. Like 99.9% sure. Because nothing in life is 100% right? Right!
But enough talking about food. Time to get waffle making! I can't wait for you to try these plantain waffles!
Until next time, happy eating friends!
Plantain Waffles with Berry Compote
- Puree the plantains with 1 cup coconut milk in your food processor or high speed blender (NOTE: altogether this should yield 3 cups - depending on the size of your plantains you may need to add a little extra coconut milk).
- Transfer the blended mixture to a mixing bowl and add the remaining coconut milk, coconut oil, eggs and vanilla extract and stir well until combined.
- Add the dry ingredients and stir well until combined.
- Turn on your waffle maker and let it heat up.
- Transfer 1 cup of the batter to your waffle maker and cook for 5-6 minutes.
- Continue until you use up all the batter. Then make the berry compote and serve!
Berry Compote Instructions
- Place a medium pot on the stove on medium heat.
- Add all the ingredients to the pot and let heat until bubbling.
- Turn the heat down and simmer for 10-15 minutes to allow the berries to break apart.
- Stir in the tapioca flour and cook for another 5 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and let sit for a couple minutes to thicken.
- Spoon the berry sauce over the waffles and enjoy!
- ** To make a gelatin egg: combine 1 TBSP gelatin with 1 tablespoon cold water and stir vigorously until the gelatin dissolves, then add 2 tablespoon boiling water and beat well (it should make a frothy type substance).
- Nutritional values are an estimate and will vary depending on the exact ingredients used.
- If you don't want to make the berry compote you don't have to. You can serve these waffles with whatever you prefer.
- Store these waffles in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
