The Ultimate Chocolate Waffle - Paleo/Primal

Sunday morning was a waffle morning at my house. On such mornings I've been making my classic Ultimate Paleo Waffles. But this week we wanted something a little more special, and what, pray tell, is more special than chocolate? So, our family classic got an update with a bit of chocolaty goodness. They turned out extra special and very yummy. Give them a try!

Paleo/Primal Chocolate Waffles
4 Eggs – room temperature
1 Banana
1 C Coconut milk – room temperature
1/4 C + 2 T coconut oil – melted
3/4 C Water – room temperature
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 T vanilla
1/2 C coconut flour
1/4 C almond flour
3/4 C tapioca flour
2 T cocoa powder
Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before you begin. Pre-Heat waffle iron. Mix all ingredients in a blender or in a large mixing bowl (if using a bowl, mash banana thoroughly!). Pour about 1 Cup of batter in the middle of your heated waffle iron then close lid. Cook waffle until your little “done” indicator light goes off then continue to cook as long as a significant amount of steam is still coming out of the waffle iron. If you pull the waffle out before it finishes releasing it’s steam the waffle will be floppy rather than crispy. Check for crispy-ness when you think the waffle is done by tapping the top of the waffle with your fingernail (at least this is how I do it).

Note: I use tapioca flour in these pancakes. Although tapioca flour is a “safe starch”, gluten-free and paleo-friendly it is still a starch and not low-carb.
