Chocolate Coconut Gluten Free Waffles

Fun fact: I’m alive! I know I’ve been off the grid, but if you follow me on Instagram or know me as a person you’ll know why. I traveled to Portland last week then as soon as I got back Monday morning, hit the ground running with life again (after a two hour nap because I was kind enough to give up my window seat for some little kid). I have a lot of fun posts coming up so stay tuned!

These waffles are the beauty of a Sunday morning.

I’ve been thinking about making chocolate coconut gluten free waffles for a while now but until recently, waffle making intimidated me. I always forget to spray the waffle maker which is basically why they intimidated me. You don’t know fun until you’re scraping waffle off your waffle maker and feeling really frustrated about life. Davida also let me know that you should let the waffle sit in the maker for a minute after the light goes off, so that’s where that tip comes from.

(Note: if you want a bunch of amazing, delicious gluten free waffle recipes pre-order Davida’s e-cookbook, Gluten Free Breakfasts.)

Topped with hidden almond butter.

I’m not a huge fan of maple syrup on pancakes so I topped these with almond butter, sliced bananas and Greek Yogurt – my go to. If you have some sort of chocolate or coconut syrup, that would probably be divine on these, too.

I really want to make these! I don’t have most of the flour ingredients though :( I’ll have to try an abridged version.

For waffles I love to mix in bloobs or chocolate chips. And vegetables cause I’m whack.

Pretty positive normal flour will work, too.

If you had asked me growing up, I would likely have said waffles, but now I would go with pancakes, unless we are talking the frozen kind of waffles. Is it weird that I like to break off pieces of them and eat them still quasi frozen?

Mmm….waffles. I love them, but I can never convince myself to pull out my waffle maker. Although adding chocolate in there definitely gives me some more motivation…

Not a fan of maple syrup? :shock: I’m not sure I can forgive you for that one. Okay, I can… but only because you added chocolate ;)

I love maple syrup in things, not on things… but maybe I can be persuaded to change my mind if I had pancakes in Canada??

Um…Both? What a terrible question.

Waffles are, however, ones you have more success with in keeping intact!
