Mmmm Nothing better than Waffles and Strawberries

     A nice long weekend at home and the hubby wanted some waffles for breakfast, but I will be honest since going Paleo I have not tried anything like them.  I was afraid that they would be disappointing, with out the use of regular flour I did not want them to be thin and weak. So I looked and looked for the perfect recipe and I could not find one that I liked. So I took a little from this recipe, took a little from that one and added a few tweaks of my own and Vaa Laa I did it.  

Paleo Strawberry Waffles

4 eggs plus 2 egg whites (separate and beat the whites to foamy peaks)
2 Tbs           Vanilla
1/2 Cup       Coconut milk
1 1/2 Cup    Almond flour                 

 3 Tbs          Coconut flour
1/2 tsp         Sea Salt
1 tsp            Baking soda
1 tsp            Cinnamon
1 pinch       Ground nutmeg
1/2 Cup      Fresh Strawberries (Diced)

I mixed all the wet ingredients, save the egg whites, with the dry ingredients.
Carefully fold the mixture into the egg whites trying to preserve as much volume as possible.

Waffles will not be as crisp as regular waffles but instead they will be light and fluffy. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family and I did. :-)

     Now for something tasty and yummy on top of them, how about a little bit of Paleo Strawberry Butter. Can we say Nom Nom.......

Paleo Strawberry Butter

1 lbs         Kelly Gold Butter (or any other grassfed butter)
1/2 Cup   Strawberries (Diced)
2 Tbs       Honey

Put butter in mixing bowl and mix till smooth and creamy, then add honey and strawberries and mix till throughly mixed in together.

Enjoy on waffles, muffins, biscuits or anything else that strikes your fancy.
