Coconut Paleo Waffles

Waffles are pretty much my favorite anytime food.  i could eat them For breakfast, lunch or dinner and also drizzled with yogurt, nut butter or maple syrup as a snack. For this recipe I used both almond and coconut flour, combined with coconut milk and shredded coconut to make these a delicious anytime treat packed with protein and healthy fats.

I am always dreaming up new recipes and combinations for waffles.  I have to be honest that not everything I experiment with in my kitchen turns out perfect the first time.  There have been a lot of flops.  Thankfully I live with the best taste tester in the world who eats or drinks almost everything I gave him. ALMOST.

This recipe came out perfect with the first batch. The perfect coco-nutty flavor and texture. They are gluten-free, paleo and can be vegan by subbing for flax eggs (haven't tested). I topped them with a simple drizzle of coconut yogurt, but imagine that these would also be good with some pineapple slices for a tropical treat to help ease you into winter.
