Crispy Paleo Waffles

After trying these crispy paleo waffles we had them A LOT in my house. 🙂 It has been years since I had a waffle since they usually are made of pretty much a mix of all ingredients that I cannot eat anymore. So for all of you that cannot have dairy, gluten, grains, refined sugar, etc. anymore you don’t have to deprive yourself of waffles anymore! And even if you don’t have any food intolerance that you know of, you should give these bad boys a try. They are super delicious and a lot healthier than most waffle recipes out there.

Instead of using flour, this recipe calls for green plantains. I know it sounds weird and complicated but it is not. This recipe is actually very simple to make. All you need is a blender and this batter will be ready to go within 5 minutes.

Make sure you don’t stack the waffles on top of each other once they are done like you would with pancakes. They will lose all their crispiness. To avoid soggy waffles, place them next to each other onto a cooling rack or eat them right away.

They taste great just with a little powdered sugar on top. Other suggestions for toppings are jelly, apple sauce, berries and of course any form of chocolate sauce. My new favorite way of eating waffles is with strawberries and cream. As always feel free to experiment with your favorite choice of toppings.

This recipe is for two people or approximately six waffles. If you like it check out my fluffy paleo pancake recipe.
