Have you guys heard the new Robin Thicke song? I think it’s called Blurred Lines or something like that? Well it’s a good one. Real good. So good that I may or may not have had a 30 second dance party to it in my car this morning. Don’t act like you’ve never done that before. Great way to start your day.
Yesterday I had kind of a recipe fail. Which involved a lot of almond flour and a lot of coconutty ingredients. And chocolate. But don’t worry. I managed to salvage it and make something delicious. And that something might just be another sugar detox dessert. Thank God I saved it because almond flour and coconut don’t just grow on trees. Okay, yes they do. But you know what I mean. I probably would have eaten them even if they tasted like poo. Because I just can’t bring myself to throw away expensive food. Well, let’s be real. I don’t throw away cheap food either. But you will have to wait for those little gems tomorrow. Please contain your excitement.
One of my aunts told me last night that she has everyone at her work reading my blog. You’re the best, Deb. She even said that one of her co-workers read yesterday’s post out loud to the other people in the office. That freaking rocks. Taylor Made It Paleo story time at work. Everyone should totally incorporate that in their workplace. Because it’s so blatantly obvious that people want to listen to me ramble about my fascinating life and the food I shove into my mouth. Maybe some people enjoy that stuff. Maybe you could even eat paleo snacks while you read it. Maybe my sarcasm is more obvious when read out loud. Probably not.
On a side note, I apologize if you get my posts via e-mail and the recipe/picture don’t show up in the e-mail. I don’t know why that happens. I’m clearly not a WordPress genius. But for now you will just have to click the link and go to the real website. #firstworldproblems
Ok so let’s get to these waffles. I haven’t made waffles since Nam. I was actually afraid our waffle maker was going to die on me in the process because that thing is old as shiz. It was probably purchased during Nam. But it was a trooper and held up. And produced some beautiful waffles. That I will now share with you. You’re welcome.
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 3 eggs (whites and yolks separated)
- 3/4 cup canned coconut milk (full fat)
- 1/4-1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup sunflowerseed butter
- 3 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- cinnamon, to taste
- salt, to taste
- Turn on waffle iron to heat up.
- Whisk together egg yolks and coconut milk.
- Combine almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a separate bowl.
- Add wet ingredients to dry and mix together.
- Add in honey/maple syrup, vanilla, and sunflower seed butter and continue to mix.
- Next, add almond milk. Start with 1/4 cup and add more if needed. You want the mixture to stay fluffy, not thin out.
- In a stand mixer, whisk egg whites until they become fluffy and stiff peaks form (this will take a few minutes).
- Fold egg whites into batter.
- Pour batter into waffle iron and cook to your preferred crispiness.
- Top with fruit, grass-fed butter, maple syrup, chocolate chips, more nut butter, etc.
- Eat your pants off.
