Today I share with you my most recent discovery and indulgence......my AIP WAFFLE RECIPE!!
If you are a clean and whole food eater......you are my people!!
If you are not a clean and whole food eater.....you are also my people!!
I do not judge.....and completely understand the hesitation to swim "upriver" when the rest of the world is floating freely in the opposite direction.
I was led to this lifestyle by an acute change in my health...that was quite serious....and still is.
Making the change to whole food....clean food...unprocessed.... non-GMO....gluten free....hormone-free.....nightshade-free.....grain-free.....dairy-free.....blah blah blah......was not easy.....BUT....it has healed me!
The struggle was worth it.....and guess what? I still get to eat good food AND maintain my lifestyle!
It's a quick and EASY recipe that I discovered on a google search!
I made a few tweaks over several batches....and am VERY happy with the crunch on the outside....doughy on the inside....feels slightly like a really good donut....waffle!
I love sweets!
Sweets are my downfall...no doubt! So if I'm going to indulge....its won't be often....and it must be SAFE!
These waffles are VERY sweet! They don't even require a syrup or honey or fruit! They are a really good grab and go kind of snack....and are perfect to throw in a bag for travel. And because they are loaded with protein.....they will keep you satisfied longer than just a standard "not so good for you" waffle!
If you prefer your waffles more savory....just omit the maple syrup that is included in the recipe.
My "Must-Try" AIP Waffle Recipe
1 1/4 c cassava flour
1/4 c arrowroot flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 c bone Peak Performance broth/collagen powder (or your AIP approved protein powder of choice)
3 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 c melted coconut oil
1 - 13 oz can full-fat organic coconut milk
1 tbsp vanilla
Preheat waffle iron.
Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl
Mix all wet ingredients in another bowl
Mix all ingredients together
Spoon mixture into waffle iron and cook according to your waffle iron instructions.
Top with maple syrup and/or fruit....and TRY to only eat just one!!!
This recipe gives me about 4 standard size waffles with 14 grams of protein per waffle (if using Peak Performance).
They freeze/refrigerate and travel well!
