Healthy (4th of July) Waffle Breakfast

20120704-095305.jpg

This recipe is something my girlfriend often makes for breakfast…either as pancakes or waffles.
She claims it’s the one thing that made her being able to stick to the LCHF diet when she first started (finding a good replacement for the breakfasts you’re used to eat seems to be the hardest part for many when switching to a Paleo/LCHF type of diet), so once she found these they were quite frequently served in our home for a while. :)
I think they’re delicious, and a great way to start the day!
(Originally I think the recipe comes from some Swedish LCHF cookbook…)
An awesome coconut waffle breakfast, and as it’s the 4th of July today I pimped ‘em up in red, white and blue for the American readers ;)

    1. Can you substitute liquid vanilla stevia or vanilla extract instead of vanilla powder?

      • Hi there!

        I’m sure you could, but probably not in a 1:1 ratio, as I find the liquid extracts being much more concentrated in flavor.
        I know some recipes substitute vanilla powder with liquid vanilla extract at a ratio of 4:1 (meaning 1 tsp powder is replaced by 1/4 tsp liquid extract), so I would recommend start testing somewhere in that range.
        (Also make sure the liquid extracts does not include any wired additives…)

        It would be awesome to hear how it works out for you!

        Thanks for asking, hope you will enjoy the recipe! :)
