Paleo Coconut Waffles. Toppings Required.

March 4, 2011

It’s Friday. Wonderful, weekend-welcoming, Friday. The day after Thursday. The day before Saturday. The perfect day to workout. The perfect day to watch Fringe (yay!). The perfect day for healthy guilt-less waffles. Or at least a recipe for them.

I’ve made Paleo Waffles before… they were good. But these were better. Bonus points for the toppings, which are not only delicious, they’re required. There’s also a vegan option, because we all need choices in life sometimes.

Dedicated to Friday. Dedicated to workout fuel. Dedicated to Ernie, Coral, Chris, Chris, and whomever at my gym is reading. But probably not Nick since Nick wouldn’t ready silly blogs. Dedicated to waffles.







On Friday, what could possibly be better than gluten and dairy free, crispy waffles, warm, melty peanut butter, lovely berries of blue, and big savory diamonds of salt? …probably a day off from work, but that’s what the day after Friday is for.

What is your Friday dedicated to?

How do you get ready for the weekend?

I was so excited to try these and bought all the ingredients, but when I started mixing everything together it was obvious there was something wrong. The resulting batter was really dry – almost crumbly. I had to just about triple the amount of liquid to get to a semi-pourable waffle batter consistency. Also, while they looked just fine when I opened up the waffle iron lid, when I tried to take them out, even though they weren’t sticking, the waffles just crumbled into bits. I have no idea what went wrong here….I really wanted to like these 😐

The same exact thing happened to me when I tried to make them.

looks tasty, although I’d probably replace with almond butter as peanut butter is definitely not paleo!


Alyson @ Nourished Fitness July 25, 2011 at 5:35 AM

Yum, can’t wait to try these!

Oh my this looks so delicious and tempting! I know someone on the Paleo diet, so I’m going to pass your post on to her too 😀

My Friday was dedicated to exercise, and in the evening relaxation 🙂

Definitely going to make these. 🙂 How many servings did this make? I was thinking about cutting it in half to make one serving size for myself.

Perfection on both the waffle and toppings arenas… nice work! I think I prefer frozen blueberries to their nonfrozen counterparts.

Those waffles are bomb. I need a light box.
