Boom! Paleo Waffles

We're following new programming: today was Day 1. 

Jose is getting himself (and some of the girls) ready for a local throwdown (competition) happening in October. James and I will be long gone to Georgia, but I'm playing with the idea of coming back to visit and compete ... we'll see what happens.

Bring on the training!

Today's WOD on the left, tomorrow's on the right.

Total distance: 4,141 meters. I was busting my ass to row a 1:58/500m on the hard intervals. My throat is sore from grunting and moaning. Classy, I know.


I also signed up for Hope, happening this Saturday. I'm excited. Nervous, but excited. A few of us will be competing, and everyone else is coming out to support! 


That's a good lookin' crack.


Do you know how tricky it can be cooking with coconut flour? Do you know how long I've been working on a good (or just um, edible) recipe? I could not find a Paleo waffle (or pancake) recipe that called for just coconut flour and not almond flour (I'm not a fan of cooking with almond flour).

So here I am, Sunday morning, I'm cracking the eggs and pouring everything into the blender, and I stumble across this girls page. And guess who also happens to have an awesome Coconut Waffle Recipe? Mine is pretty similar.

Paleo Waffles
Grain-Free, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free
Makes 6 waffles

  • 3 whole eggs, organic
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or bacon grease)
  • 1 small, well-ripened banana, frozen, then thawed and mashed
  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1/3 cup Almond Breeze, unsweetened
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 drops of NuNauturals liquid stevia, or sweetener of choice (to taste)
  • dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
Throw everything in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds until well-incorporated. Cook to waffle iron directions. 

*I added 3 tablespoons of PB2 into the last bit of the batter, and they came out splendidly. Peanut Butter and banana, does it get any better?! Actually, maple and bacon would be pretty awesome. Sub the coconut oil for bacon grease and crumble in some fresh bacon, sweetend with maple syrup or molasses. Wow.


I had a few left over, so I put them in a tupperware and stored them in the freezer. I had them for dinner last night. Just a few minutes in the toaster oven, and boom! They were even better the 2nd day! The banana flavor really had a chance to develop, and with the PB2, it was pretty damn heavenly.


Topped with frozen cherries that I'd warmed in the microwave with a little cinnamon, and drizzled the juices all over the waffles, strawberries and kiwi (yes, skin on).


Each waffle packs 9g of protein and 4g of fiber and less than 150 calories. 
Two are incredibly filling! That's almost 20g of protein and 8g of fiber!


Got my craft on again over the weekend.
Crazy bag lady.

 What do you think of this one?


Boom.

  1. coconut waffles sound amazing! I cant even make regular ones with bisquick...
    Do you hoard bacon grease? I do. I like to use it to grease my pans in most dishes. I saw that it could be used in this recipe so I may have to use it.

  12. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    This means that you literally burn fat by eating Coconut Fat (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medical journals are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world upside down!
