Happy International Waffle Day! Hold on.. there's a day dedicated to waffles?! It is actually a tradition that started in Sweden as Våffeldagen (waffle day) which they say stems from the mispronunciation of the Christian holiday Vårfrudagen (Our Lady's Day). March 25th marks the annunciation of Virgin Mary (she announced she would conceive Jesus) and is celebrated by feasting on waffles. The alternative USA Waffle Day is August 24th, when the waffle iron was patented.



For me it's an excuse to eat waffles for dinner. Pshh, like I needed one. Being on a health-kick, I went for the alternative low-carb, gluten & diary free version by using coconut flour. Even if you don't like coconut flavor you can still enjoy these protein packed bad boys by substituting coconut with almond flour. Although I found when baking with coconut flour, the flavor is pretty neutral. These waffles are very light and slightly sweet just the way I like it. I just add whatever topping I want- depending if I let myself cheat and have more sweets. Best part is you can make extra because they freeze well. Just toss them briefly in a toaster or toaster oven when you want more.

Dessa våfflor fortfarande smakar mycket goda! These waffles still taste very good!


Waffles with Coconut Flour

You'll need:
4 large eggs
1/2 cup almond milk
1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp raw honey or maple syrup or stevia 
1/2 cup of coconut flour

Do this: 
1. Preheat waffle iron 
2.  Add all the ingredients to a bowl and blend well. 
3. You can use a mixer, blender, food processor, or a whisk. Pour batter to iron and cover 3/4 of it. Mine took 2-4 minutes to cook. 
4.  Top with mixing of your choosing. I put a bit of raw honey and a dash of cinnamon. (I forgot to buy strawberries or I would have added that with a bit of almond butter).

Makes 3 to 5 waffles depending on your waffle iron.
