Coconut Waffles (Gluten-Free, Dairy Free)

These gluten-free, dairy-free, fiber-full waffles are so delicious you’ll soon forget how healthy they are. I developed this recipe for my book 60 Seconds to Slim but they are also perfect for a leisurely holiday breakfast or a delightful dessert. Packed with medium-chain triglycerides, which according to coconut researcher and author of The Coconut Oil Miracle, boost thyroid function and speed metabolism. The shredded coconut helps boost the fiber content as well. I love them topped with raspberries or blueberries.

Makes 24 to 36 waffles, depending on waffle maker size

5 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon coconut sugar or raw sugar
5 cups coconut or almond milk
2 eggs or egg substitute if you prefer
2 tablespoons coconut oil

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, shredded coconut, baking soda, cinnamon, and palm sugar. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut milk, eggs, and coconut oil, whisking until blended. Then pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just blended. Pour into a waffle maker and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Enjoy served with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or your favorite topping for a delicious treat. Alternatively, freeze on a parchment-lined baking sheet and, once frozen, place in a sealed freezer bag for later use.

I re-thought my comment on this recipe and tried it, since I've now been told I've developed an inflammatory allergy to the high protein wheats that are generally available at the store. It was actually very good, although I did add more eggs, per Sybil G.'s comment.
