Valentine’s Day is coming up! For those of you looking to spice up your day- I’ve concocted a quick, healthy Valentines’s day breakfast that is gluten-free & paleo! This waffle recipe, paired with a fancy homemade latte is perfect for surprising your significant other- or for treating your fabulous self on the day of L.O.V.E.
Before we get into this recipe I’d like to proudly announce that the two main tools I used for this post were found at HomeGoods. Yes. HomeGoods- so they were a steal and I would highly recommend you go and search for these at your own HomeGoods before purchasing on Amazon. However- I am aware that the idea of HomeGoods does not appeal to all so I am linking both items here for you:
One more note before we get into the good stuff: You do not need a waffle iron to make this recipe! Should you simply want some paleo pancakes- this recipe will work just as well. You do you.
Now- if at this point you’d like to skip down to the bottom of the page- you will see a printer friendly version of this recipe. This is a new little perk I’m adding to all my recipes from here on out- but if you want to see my standard picture heavy walkthrough of this dish- continue scrolling below.
You’ll need:Helpful Hint: Coconut Flour is found almost everywhere- check any Bob’s Redmill section at Walmart, Marianos’s etc. Toss all the ingredients in your blender.Blend- and set aside while your waffle iron gets up to temperature. Then start makin’ waffles! I used about 1/4 cup of batter for each mini waffle and gave them a minute before pulling them off the iron to cool.Once you have your waffles, plate and serve with fresh strawberries, chia seeds, cinnamon and of course- maple syrup.Time for an almond milk latte! I used Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla and black Starbucks coffee. And of course- this gem.
The milk frother is pretty self-explanatory- but give it a try beforehand by sticking the wand at the bottom of a cup filled with water and a little dish soap. You won’t waste any almond milk and you’ll get a handle on what you’re doing while cleaning it at the same time.
Once you’ve frothed to your liking, sprinkle on some cinnamon and coconut sugar for added sweetness.
Once you’re done making your lattes, you’ll have prepared a delicious Valentine’s Day breakfast that’s gluten and dairy free, paleo, and packed with protein. No gluten/dairy means no bloat! You’ll be ready to celebrate with confidence all day, and night. 😉
As always- leave me some love in the comments below and by sharing my post! Sending my love to you all- and if you make these waffles send me a picture! I love seeing your recreations 🙂
