raspberry coconut flax waffles

errryday I’m wafflein’

All right, not every day. Special days, birthdays.

Jason had a birthday last weekend, and the dogs and I got up early and made him breakfast in bed.

This time of year we visit the farmers market all the time, and I always have at least two pints of fresh raspberries on hand. Too often I simply eat them by the handful, or use them as a topping, like here with these waffles.

This time though, I also added raspberries to the waffle batter. A slight flavor, but a good one – lightly sweet and summery, with a double dose of coconut.

Yes to waffles! I have the same problem with eating all the raspberries before I can make anything out of them, but I think I’d exercise my willpower for this. :)

that’s why I always have to buy a whole flat… so I can eat a pint or two as is!

I was that way about strawberries – never really cared for them until just a few years ago… but raspberries will always be my favorite.

YUM! I have a very similar recipe that includes almond extract….and coconut butter so tasty! But I haven’t tried coconut flour, I never have much luck with that flour! I will for sure have to try these:)

I know, coconut flour is very hit and miss. I find if I mix it with another flour it is more friendly… ;)

Yay waffles!! And the raspberry coconut flavoring makes them even more decadent.

Oooooohh waffles! I used to love waffles! So good to know that you can make healthy waffles, I want some! :D I just don’t have a waffle iron. :(

I know they’re not quite the same, but you could make these into pancakes? :)

Yes probably. And if it turns out this way of eating is continuing to go as well as it’s currently going, I’ll think about purchasing a waffle iron.

What a DELICIOUS and sweet spin on flax. This is another time that I’m wishing I had a waffle iron, because I would be making this for sure!!

they really had a good flavor – subtle, but that was nice.

This sounds fantastic! How long does the flax mixture take to form a gel? I haven’t experimented with that yet, although I’ve been meaning to. And I love fresh berries… yum!
