The best Paleo Waffles made with almond flour and served with coconut whipped cream, low carb maple syrup, and cinnamon.
My first memories of waffles are the Mickey shape ones. I remember my brothers and I use to love them when we were kids. I am not quite sure if it was the taste, or just that they had Mickey’s face on them. But it was, without doubt, our favorite breakfast. We will eagerly wait all week for Sundays so we could have this delicious waffles topped with real whipped cream. Definitely a great indulgence as a kid.
Now that I am older, my eating habits have changed quite a bit. I mostly seek recipes that are healthy, meaning high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats. During the week I generally go for high protein breakfast such as eggs, salmon or some oats with nut butter on them and leave the sweet indulgences for the weekend.
I just got my waffle maker a couple of weeks ago and decided to give it a go this past weekend. I was going to use oats as the flour but ended up deciding to make Paleo Waffles since I knew a lot of people are in the Paleo train these days.
I didn’t add any fruit inside my waffles because I prefer topping them with fresh fruit but feel free to add any type of berries to your mix.
How to make Coconut Whipped Cream
And of course, I couldn’t leave the whipped cream out. So I made a paleo, whole30, keto, vegan coconut whipped cream from a can of coconut milk. All you need is a can of full-fat coconut cream and your choice of unrefined sugar. I used monk fruit sweetener to keep it paleo friendly but feel fry to use coconut sugar or any other sweetener of your choice. Whip it up with a hand mixer or stand mixer until it gets fluffy.
