Waffles and pancakes, they’re my favorite breakfast food, and I can have them every morning. I don’t like my waffles and pancakes lonely, so I usually love adding berries, syrups, and dairy products for a happy, healthy morning.
Lately, I’ve read tons of benefits of using coconut oil. From personal care to household remedy, I’ve learned how helpful it is in our daily lives. But what’s incredible about this ‘wonder oil’ is that it’s so versatile that you can also use it for cooking. Moreover, it’s also an excellent and healthy replacement to the commercially processed margarine and butter.
You’ll need the following ingredients to make the tasty coconut oil waffles:
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups of whole milk
1/2 cup of virgin coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon sugar
4 teaspoons of baking powder (aluminum free is best)
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Here’s how to do it:
Let’s start making your wholesome coconut oil waffles by preheating the waffle iron.
As a friendly reminder, making waffles is easier if you separately combine the wet and dry ingredients.
So, in a large bowl, beat the eggs first until it becomes fluffy. You can then gradually add the milk, virgin coconut oil, and vanilla. Mix the ingredients well.
Grab another bowl and combine all the dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Gently mix the dry ingredients until they’re well-mixed.
Now, you don’t want a lumpy batter. You can do this by sifting the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Then slowly add the wet ingredients while vigorously mixing them with a whisk or a fork. Continue the process until it reaches a soft and mushy consistency. Doing this minimizes the annoying clumps on the batter so that you can soon enjoy the warm breakfast waffles. You don’t want that flour taste in your mouth, do you?
Let’s make the waffles!
Spray the waffle iron with some virgin coconut oil. Pour about two-third a cup of the waffle batter into the preheated waffle iron. Now, close the lid and sit pretty for about five minutes or when it stops steaming. Remove the waffles carefully and serve them on a plate while they’re mouth-wateringly hot.
Viola! Your coconut oil waffles are ready to serve! This super easy recipe can make about four tasty coconut oil waffles. To make it more palatable, add your favorite berries, jams, or syrup on the coconut oil waffles while it’s still hot.
You can have an easy-peasy, healthy breakfast with coconut oil waffles. As you know, it’s always best to be healthy. And coconut oil should be recommended as a key ingredient to homemade cooking. It adds some subtle taste and sweet scent to the food which makes it so appetizing. Moreover, coconut oil consists of healthy fats which make an excellent butter substitute in cooking.
