A Yummy Lil Frozen Waffle Recipe!

Yum, it’s Sunday and who doesn’t love a big breakfast on Sunday?  What if I told you that you could have your fill of yummy waffles without feeling sick afterwards?

What if I gave you a recipe for waffles that didn’t give you a headache, heartburn, tiredness, or monkey mind?  Wouldn’t that be grand!  I know back in the day when I ate traditional pancakes and waffles, I usually felt like crap a couple of hours later.

Not anymore!

I think it’s truly amazing that we have all these yummy recipes at our disposal! Teaching ourselves and our children to eat better is a destination and it’s our job to explore and enjoy the journey!

Do something good for your kids, do something good for yourself and make a batch of these waffles.  They are named Frozen Waffles by the folks at Paleo Parents, but I don’t think you’ll have too many going to the freezer especially if you are feeding a hungry family.  But if you do, they freeze very well and you won’t be disappointed!

The Recipe

I am going to tell you up front that I used a green tip banana for less sugar, and I used a pear. I bought a huge bag of pears from Costco last week, and they are getting ripe quick.  Think of this recipe as a way to use up your ripening fruit!

1 banana, green tip preferred but a ripe one will work- it will just be sweeter

1 apple, or like I used today, a ripe pear- peeled and cored

1 cup of almond butter- smooth style

2 eggs

1 tablespoon of Arrowroot powder

1 tablespoon of Vanilla

1/2 teaspoon of baking SODA

Oil for your waffle maker (if you don’t have one, try making a pancake, I have not tried this method, but it may work)

The Method

You are going to love this:

Throw everything into the food processor or VitaMix and blend until super smooth like, uh, hmm…Batter!!

Once you’ve got a nice smooth batter, drop into a heated waffle iron or skillett and brown on both sides.  I like a 2 minute waffle, but some of you might prefer 3 minutes.

Remember to NOT fill the waffle iron full, only about 40% full.  This makes the waffle much easier to handle.

I don’t use syrup (they are plenty sweet), but if you are so inclined, go for it!  Don’t forget your REAL BUTTER!

I hope you enjoy, and please leave a comment!  I would love to hear from you!
