Okay, the greatest thing about these coconut waffles is how fast they are! 10-minute waffles?! You bet! With just a simple list of healthy ingredients, you’ll be eating in no time.
Coconut flour is a great substitute for those who have sensitivities to nut flours. It’s made by draining, straining, drying, and grinding up the meat of a coconut. Coconut flour is great for our health. Compared to normal, refined flour, it really is a powerhouse of nutrients. Coconut is rich in a fatty acid called lauric acid, which helps raise HDL (“good”) cholesterol, thus helping prevent things like atherosclerosis (narrowing of arteries).
Coconut flour is also rich in fiber (more than any other type of flour), which as we’ve talked about is necessary for healthy bowel function. Because of its high fiber content, coconut flour is also helpful in regulating blood sugar.
While this recipe only serves one person, it’s easy to increase the ingredients for additional servings. Or, mix up the ingredients again while one waffle is cooking.
