One of the reasons I love the morning (I am such a morning person, haha) is because breakfast is hands down my favorite meal of the day (with brunch coming in a very close second). I love waking up after a good nights sleep and walking into the kitchen to see what we have. One of my favorite breakfast foods are waffles (with eggs, yum!), but I always find that regular waffles always weigh me down throughout the morning and don’t make me feel as nourished. After getting our waffle maker about a year and a half ago, we’ve been experimenting with all sorts of recipes, trying to find one that worked the best. In the end, the recipe that I fell in love with was one that mixed a bunch of different recipes together, and used coconut oil instead of any other oils or butter. My favorite breakfast at home would consist of these waffles, an over easy egg, some fresh fruit and an iced coffee. If you try this recipe out, let me know how you like it in the comments below! Happy eating:)
1 1/2 cup low-fat milk or unsweetened almond milk
3/4 cup coconut oil
2 cups whole-wheat flour
2 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional; this depends on whether you want your waffles more sweet or savory)
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs until light and fluffy. Add the milk, and coconut oil (and vanilla if you choose) to the eggs and continue to beat for another 2 minutes.
- Gradually add the flour, baking soda and salt to the wet mixture while continuously beating.
- Cook waffles in waffle maker according to instructions (each waffle maker works a little differently).
- Serve warm with a little bit of maple syrup and fruit or with an egg for a delicious breakfast!
