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.
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!

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
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)
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!
