Churro Waffles from PaleOMG

Sometimes when I find a blogger I really like, I get stuck making their recipes for a while.  (Stuck isn't a bad thing exactly, but might be boring for my readers!) This happened with Smitten Kitchen, and now PaleOMG.  I actually found Juli at PaleOMG first through a cookbook that I got for review (OMG. That's Paleo?) and only then poked around her blog.

Some people say that using baking soda makes a recipe not paleo, but I don't really care about paleo as much as I care about lower sugar, grain-free recipes. So if you are paleo, check the ingredient list and make a small change accordingly.

These were pretty tasty, and just different enough from our usual morning routine to make a nice change in taste and texture.  The picture on her blog is quite a bit darker, so it's possible that mine are underbaked.  I made four almost-whole waffles with this recipe.  I will indicate when what I did differed from her recipe.

Churro Waffles
Source: PaleOMG (check out her other recipes!)

  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal/flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • ⅓ cup canned coconut milk (I used full-fat)
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1 tablespoon honey (I used coconut sugar and added a bit more coconut milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons grass fed butter, melted (or coconut oil if you don’t do butter)
  • ¼-1/3 cup coconut sugar
  1. Place almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and whisk together.
  2. Then add coconut milk, eggs, honey, and vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. Place mixture into hot waffle iron and cook until cooked through. I used a non stick waffle iron but you may want to grease it just in case.
  4. Melt butter in a wide bowl and place coconut sugar in another wide bowl.
  5. After waffles are cooked through, place each other into the melted butter, soaking it on both sides, then place them into the coconut sugar to coat.
  6. Then eat!
Made 6 small waffles. Should make 3-4 large waffles
