Paleo Coconut Flour Waffles

I put a call out for some recipe requests, and this one came in from a friend of mine.  I looked around for  recipes and found that most of them had a lot of sugar in them - be it honey, agave etc - so I made some modifications and truthfully, you don't really need to sweeten them up aside from the vanilla.  

8 large eggs
6 tbs coconut flour
2 tsp olive or (warmed) coconut oil
1 tsp honey
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 vanilla bean (or 1 tsp vanilla)

Pre-heat waffle iron.  Whisk all ingredients in bowl, or use a food processor, until smooth.  Add amount suggested for you waffle iron and cook accordingly.  I was able to make 4 large waffles with this amount of batter.  Top off with almond butter, berries or a little Grade B maple syrup (pictured) and you've got a weekend breakfast treat. 

These are definitely better fresh, but if you're saving/reheating them, throw them in the toaster.

This recipe is intriguing, but the proportions seem extreme: 8 eggs to only 6 tablespoons of coconut flour? Is that correct? Seems like the waffles would be little more than scrambled eggs baked in a waffle iron!

Coconut flour has the ability to suck every last ounce of moisture out of your recipes if you let it... it is very absorbent. You only need a little bit to have the same effect as cups and cups of other flours.

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I just made it this morning and loved how they are dense and a little chewy. I added a tbsp of shredded coconut for a little texture. Yum!!

Beware! Coconut Flour is very high in fiber. You've been warned lol.
