So, it’s no secret that I’ve never jumped on the pancake train. Don’t get me wrong – I do enjoy pancakes, but something about them is a little plain and boring. Yes, I know there are a million ways to make pancakes fun (see ALL of Heather’s pancake recipes), but that still doesn’t do it for me.
A little while ago, I figured out why – I there is not enough variety in the texture, and I eat them way too fast. Call me weird.
Enter: waffles. Essentially the same ingredients as a pancake, but somehow a million times more fun and exciting.
The little squares make for perfectly distributed toppings that don’t fall off – with all the fluffiness and flavor of a pancakes! Plus, they’re already perfectly sectioned in bite-size squares to keep me from taking monster bites and eating too fast.
Yes, I finally took the plunge and got myself a cheap-o waffle maker. But it works like a charm. Fluffy, healthy, Belgian waffles in less than 10 minutes, yes please!
My favorite recipe so far is a slightly modified version of the PurelyTwins’ recipe for a grain-free coconut flour waffle. Except I usually use 1 egg and 1/4 cup egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs.
Enjoyed with a side of coffee.
I had that waffle for breakfast three days in a row, and it was glorious. It even kept me full for hours! So I can officially say I’m hooked. Bring on the waffle recipes!!
