Aimee and I decided to meet in a hotel lobby at noon. It was a cold and rainy day in NYC. Like a typical tourist, I got lost on my way to the hotel, and arrived a bit late – frazzled and cold. Amy immediately greeted me with a huge smile and a hug. We sat in large red chairs, in a dark lounge, next to the window and just enjoyed being out of the elements for a bit. We had met months before, but hadn’t really gotten to know one another. Amy began telling me her story and I couldn’t believe my ears. She had struggled with health issues and went to doctor after doctor trying to find the answers. She had become allergic to most foods and had months of severe swelling. After many long months and dozens of doctor’s appointments, she discovered it was the food she was eating. Our stories are very similar and we immediately became kindred spirits.

Aimee is spunky and has more energy than anyone I know. She’s a personal chef, culinary marketing consultant, whole living expert, professional recipe developer, and specializes in gluten-free “clean” recipes. Her site is full of great recipes and ideas for anyone new to clean eating. She also offers loads of encouragement for those struggling with health issues.

Mother’s Day is Sunday and the traditional act of love is breakfast in bed. Many kids and husbands can have a little trouble trying to figure out what to make, which ingredients to buy, and how to execute the plan early on Sunday without setting off the smoke alarms. So, Amy and I thought it would be fun to give your husbands and kids all the tools they need to make you breakfast this weekend.

We have two easy recipes, a shopping list, and step-by-step instructions for Sunday morning. Print off the step-by-step instructions and coconut flour waffle recipe here, then pop over to Aimee’s site for the second recipe and shopping list. Hand the printed paper to your family and you can sleep soundly knowing that a healthy, delicious breakfast is on the way. Happy Mother’s Day.

These look beautiful and being that coconut is one of my favorite things on earth, maybe I will be sending this to my husband as a “hint, hint.” THanks for the intro to Amy :)

I love the use of coconut flour for these waffles! My mom loves waffles, so I am definitely going to make these.

These waffles sound wonderful. My mom is not gluten free, but being from Ghana she is obsessed with coconut. If she was closer to home, I would totally make these for her for mother’s day.

Carrie –

Thank you so much for a wonderful Mother’s Day breakfast in bed! Yes, my husband and son took on the challenge this morning. I must say, these are the BEST waffles I have ever eaten! Maybe it’s all the love and laughter that went into them, there was a lot of that coming out of our kitchen.

This was my first Mother’s Day breakfast in bed, our son is 14 :). The first time my husband and son actually cooked together in the kitchen. They even broke out the food processor they gave me for Christmas that I haven’t used yet and figured out how to use it. Every step of the way I was giggling in bed. I kept wishing I could be a fly on the kitchen wall.

Thanks again for the special recipe and the step by step instructions. My Mother’s Day is off to a wonderful start! Have a very Happy Mother’s Day, blessings and hugs. Karen

I’m so glad to hear you all enjoyed it!! How cute that they pulled out your food processor. So fun! Happy Mother’s Day!

I was given a bag of coconut flour by a friend and have not known what to do with it! Going to try these on the fam

We tried this with both coconut flour and then with almond flour because we ran out of the coconut flour. We really liked both but preferrred the almond. Of course they were too thin because of the eggs. Any suggestions to modify? With all almond flour should we use less eggs? Or mix half coconut flour and half almond?

Reply

Jeanine June 7, 2012 at 5:16 am

We had success with two thirds coconut flour and one third almond flour.

Deliciously Organic June 7, 2012 at 7:15 am

Thanks for letting me know. I haven’t tested the waffles with other combinations of flour, and since coconut flour is tricky to work with I don’t have any suggestions for you that I would feel would work without me trying them first. I’ll have to give your combination a try!

These look so great and I can’t wait to try them. I am trying really hard to cut out sugar and this includes honey. Could I substitute stevia for the honey? If so, could you suggest how much?

Reply

Deliciously Organic June 18, 2012 at 5:39 am

I haven’t tested it with stevia, but I think it should work just fine. Since stevia is so sweet, I would start with 1/4 teaspoon, taste the batter, and then add more if necessary. If you give it a try, please let me know how it turns out! :)

Jason July 20, 2012 at 4:16 pm

That’s a lot of honey – ideas on how to cut it down?

Reply

Deliciously Organic July 21, 2012 at 7:23 am

It comes out to about 1.3 tablespoons per person. I haven’t tested it, but you could try taking it down by a couple tablespoons. The coconut flour needs lots of moisture, so you might have to compensate by adding a bit more moisture. If you give it a try, let me know how it turns out!

Have you tried your recipe with coconut or almond milk instead of dairy? I recently stopped dairy after suffering from sinus headaches daily for 35 days. I’m having trouble finding grain free, dairy free breakfasts. Thanks Carrie!

Deliciously Organic September 4, 2012 at 9:31 am

Yes, the milk can be substituted with coconut milk. Enjoy!

I followed the recipe to a T this morning…these waffles did not turn out well. They were very dry and eggy tasting. I hate to be the first and maybe only bad review, but I like to be honest about my cooking experiences. For the sake of my coconut flour and how expensive it is, I’m going to try it again sometime. Maybe mix everything in the blender instead of the food processor. Why the use of so many eggs for so little dry ingredients?

Reply

Deliciously Organic January 18, 2013 at 12:03 pm

Thanks for the honest feedback. I’m not sure why they were dry and eggy. Coconut flour soaks up an incredible amount of moisture, so that’s why the recipe calls for so many eggs. Without all the eggs, the waffles wouldn’t hold together.

Amanda May 4, 2013 at 9:15 am

I halved this recipe this morning and substituted coconut oil for butter (was all out of butter). Maybe this is just a trait of coconut flour, or perhaps this recipe really needs the butter, but they were so dry I could barely get them out of my (non-stick) waffle iron. They crumbled to pieces! I still ate the broken bits though and loaded on the coconut cream. I loved the flavor of them but the texture not so much. At least it was a really filling breakfast!

Deliciously Organic May 4, 2013 at 10:52 am

I haven’t tried it with coconut oil, so I’m not sure if that was the culprit. Did you make any other substitutions? Also, sometimes a recipe doesn’t do as well when it’s halved. Maybe that was the issue?

Maria Tan July 16, 2013 at 10:04 am

My son has an egg allergy. How could I substitute the eggs?

Thanks in advance,
Maria

Unfortunately, you can’t substitute the eggs in this recipe. Here is a butter cake recipe from The Spunky Coconut that might be a good substitute: http://www.thespunkycoconut.com/2012/05/ooey-gooey-butter-cake-vegan-grain-free.html

Can I make these into pancakes? I don’t have a waffle maker…

Reply

Deliciously Organic September 16, 2013 at 1:34 pm

I’ve never tried it, but I think it would work well. You might need to thin the batter just a bit with a little milk or coconut milk.

Tricia November 19, 2013 at 8:20 am

Hi…just wondering what kind of waffle maker you have? I am looking for one that is non toxic and didn’t know if you had a recommendation…thanks!!

Lisa May 11, 2014 at 9:04 am

What’s your secret for getting these out of the waffle maker? After trying two I gave up and threw it out. They weren’t sticking any more than a regular waffle, but they tore apart when opening it and trying to lift them off. It was a disaster.

Reply

Deliciously Organic May 12, 2014 at 7:58 am

Hmm…I just made these last week and didn’t have any problems. If they aren’t coming out, then it’s most likely that your waffle maker isn’t hot enough.

Reply

Lisa May 12, 2014 at 8:42 am

I will try it hotter next time, thanks. These would probably make great tasting pancakes and I wish I had thought of that before I threw it out lol.

Hi Carrie – I am in the market for a new waffle maker – do you have a favorite? Thanks :) -Michelle

Ultimately, I’d love a cast iron waffle maker, but all of the ones I’ve tried have failed (miserably!). Here’s the waffle maker I use – It creates the perfect waffles and I love the pattern! http://amzn.to/1k0gF1E
