Thanks to my new internet food crush, Eat the Cookie, my children are happy with breakfast again! I have been eating Paleo style for the past 6 weeks which means no grains of any sort so traditionally prepared breakfast staples like toast, pancakes, waffles, muffins, etc are out. Personally, I am just fine with eating dinner leftovers for breakfast or some sort of egg based breakfast, but my kids quickly tired of these alternatives and began asking for their old favorites. Fortunately, recipes for Paleo versions of many foods are widely available online.
I tried a popular recipe for Paleo pancakes that uses coconut flour and almond flour instead of wheat, but the texture was not great. Then I tried a popular Paleo muffin recipe that was pretty good and held off the hungry hordes for a couple of days, but before I knew it they were back asking for waffles. I knew I had to find a really good recipe to satisfy my family’s cravings for comfort breakfast so I began to scour the internet. Most of the recipes that I found were the same basic recipe as I had used for the pancakes, and I wasn’t thrilled with their texture. Then I stumbled upon a recipe that uses a bit of Tapioca Flour to make the waffles crisp. I knew that this recipe had potential so I went for it and I was not disappointed!
Both of my kids and my husband happily dug into their waffles and my little one even asked for more! Success! I used the recipe from Eat the Cookie with my own variation for the topping but I had to double the recipe because I used my Belgian waffle iron which holds more batter than the average waffle iron.
