Waffle Maker, for the paleo waffles

This is one of “those” kitchen items I NEVER thought I would own. I am not a waffle person and it takes up space. HOWEVER that was BEFORE I discovered Stacey’s Frozen Paleo Waffles from Paleo Parents! I die. I digress. I dream of these! Oh wait? Yes, they are for the kids…ummm, mostly. (Recipe below).

 


So now I own this baby Cuisinart WAF-150 4-Slice Belgian Waffle Maker, Stainless Steel and I love it! You can get any kind of waffle maker, JUST be sure it cleans up easily & heats up quickly. If I had to scrub this, or had burnt waffle crust on it, I would never use it. If it isn’t easy I am OUT!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana (use green-tipped for 21 Day Sugar Detox*, or ripe for more flavor)
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and cored (use green for 21 Day Sugar Detox*, or your favorite variety)
  • 1 C smooth almond butter (or a grainy-brand of sunflower seed butter for nut-free)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 TBSP arrowroot powder (I’ll be honest, I have never used this)
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • oil for greasing waffle iron (melted coconut oil with a silicon pastry brush works best)

Instructions

  1. Puree apple and banana in a food processor. (I use the Vitamix)
  2. Use the whisk attachment on your electric mixer and whip almond butter on high for 2-3 minutes until smooth and fluffed. (more work, use the Vitamix)
  3. Add puree and remaining ingredients to whipped almond butter and continue to whip until combined. (ALL of it into the Vitamix!!!!)
  4. Grease your hot waffle maker (for each waffle you make).
  5. Use about 1 ladle of batter per 8-by-4-inch waffle onto hot waffle iron for 3-5 minutes until browned. Do not fill up entire waffle maker, leave about 40% unfilled so that the batter can spread. If your waffle is soft or floppy, it’s not ready yet – keep cooking for another minute or two!
  6. Eat immediately or store flat in freezer and make your own breakfast by reheating in toaster – the waffles will be firm enough!
  7. Then freeze the rest for later!
