Paleo Chocolate Chip Waffles
The other morning, my two-year old looked at me, while I was trying to figure out what to make us for breakfast, and said, “Mom, can you make some ‘awfuls’, please?”
“Awfuls?” I asked, trying to translate into toddler speak…”Waffles, you mean?”
“Yes! I need awfuls, please!” She said, smiling. We are still working on the difference between a need and a want in our house, but the fact that she used manners when she asked, and said “please” without any prompting from us was a pretty big deal to me. So, obviously, I did what any sucker would do and I made the kid some paleo chocolate chip waffles.
As I mentioned before, not all paleo waffle recipes are so fantastic. Some can be dry, but some are absolutely amazing. It depends on the recipe, I guess. For these ones, I turned to Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain cookbook. I have had nothing but success with her recipes, and they tend to be kid friendly, too, which always helps. You can also find a waffle recipe of hers on her blog. I used coconut milk in place of almond milk, because that is what I had on hand. I also didn’t have raw cashews on hand. I only had salted cashews on hand. I knew that using salted cashews would make the waffles much too salty, but I wasn’t interested in running out to the store, either. So, I measured the salted cashews, rinsed them a few times to get the salt off, and then strained them. Now, they were still wet when I made the recipe. I was concerned that this would change the recipe, since this caused the recipe to have more liquid in it than the way that it was written. Luckily, the final product turned out perfectly fine. I also sprinkled a few Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips into the batter after I poured it into the waffle iron, because chocolate for breakfast is always the right answer. I left them out of the waffle for my husband though, because he is one of those weird people who doesn’t like chocolate. (Apparently, those people do exist….whatever, more chocolate for me….)
Now, I will say, that these were probably the best paleo waffles that I have had to date. There are some other recipes I want to try, but so far, these are our favorite.
