Recipe for delicious Almond flavoured Waffles – serve with the toppings of your choice
2 large eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. dutch cocoa powder, unsweetened
1/2 cup sugar (more if you like them sweeter or less for less sweet)
4 drops almond extract
1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted (pure and organic/ use coconut butter as a substitute.)
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup coconut shreds or flakes (I used sweetened)
1 tbsp. chocolate syrup
1 1/4 cup milk
*coconut oil for greasing waffle iron*
coconut flakes -sweetened or unsweetened.
crushed almonds – raw-unsalted
fruits and icing sugar
Mix eggs until they begin to get bubbly, then add salt, baking soda, Dutch chocolate. Mix until the cocoa powder is completely lump free.
Add sugar, almond extract, coconut oil and mix again (Place a jar of coconut oil in the pot of warm water and it will melt).
Add all purpose flour, coconut shreds or flakes, cold milk and chocolate syrup – Whisk until it is lump free (the mixture has coconut flakes, but try to look for flour lumps that you can break).
Preheat waffle iron. Brush coconut oil on the iron and ladle in waffle batter.
Close and follow the instructions of your waffle (usually green/blue/orange/light goes on when the waffles are done cooking.
If it leaks on the sides, no worries, it’s normal, especially if you want thicker waffles. Carefully peel them off the waffle iron. Make sure to always brush on the oil (top and bottom) before adding batter for a new waffle. If you do not, the waffles will stick to the iron.
Serve them with any topping that you desire, but I’d recommend coconut flakes, crushed raw/unsalted almonds and chocolate syrup. I find that strawberries go perfectly with it.
