Tropcial Waffles In Cold Weather

banana-coconut-wafflesThe weather may not be tropical here anymore but my waffles were this morning. I had a great leg workout with Trainer Man. I stopped on the way home at QT for my well earned coffee and then rushed home to surprise The Kid with waffles and Canadian bacon.

She had never had Canadian bacon and said that it was kinda like ham but a different shape. I never thought of it that way, but she was right. I haven’t made waffles for quite a while so I was thrilled to make these. I also picked up a couple pomegranates at the store for tomorrow’s breakfast. I may eat them on top of leftover waffles if all goes as planned!

Banana Coconut Waffles

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp mace or nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Preheat a waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray. Beat the eggs and mashed banana in a bowl until blended. Add all the other ingredients and stir until mixed well and the consistency of waffle batter. When the waffle iron is ready, fill each waffle with batter and cook according to the instructions. My waffle iron takes 1/3 cup batter per waffle and made 8 waffles. Top with applesauce, sliced fruit, or syrup.

The waffles were delicious and I had to force myself to eat only two. Next time I might try them with pumpkin instead of banana. You could probably try applesauce too and cut back on the coconut milk so the batter isn’t too runny.

Do you know if there is a difference between Canadian bacon and ham? What do you like on your waffles?
