Coconut Sugar Bacon Waffles

Coconut Sugar Bacon Waffles 2 copyI’m a sucker for a big, indulgent breakfast. The bigger and more indulgent the better.

Pancakes are usually my go-to, simply because it’s quicker for me to pull out the pancake griddle than it is to go outside to the storage room behind the garage to poke around for my Belgian waffle maker. This waffle contraption is such a space hog that I can’t justify keeping it in the kitchen – lol! But in all honesty, I really believe that waffles taste better, and are more indulgent, than pancakes.

Grain-free waffles can be a challenge compared with traditional waffle mixes, when it comes to having batter want to stick, so always be sure to take the extra time to grease your waffle maker with some coconut oil. It’s worth it when your waffles quickly pop out in one piece.

I’ve already posted 3 awesome waffle recipes (Waffles with Tropical Fruit Topping, Gingerbread Waffles and Chocolate Waffles), but this is the first one that is 100% nut-free as well as being free of grains and gluten. So high-five to all my nut-free friends! This one is for you 🙂 Enjoy!

    Love the Recipe Hacker cook book but I do have one question. When making the cinnamon rolls what size do you make the rectangular (length, width and depth) to make the 15 rolls.
    Can’t wait for your reply so I can make them.

      Hi Daniel- The length of the cinnamon roll should be about 15 inches and then about 1 inch slices. Happy Cooking!

    I made the waffles this morning for Father’s Day.
    They were excellent ! Light and fluffy.

    Made the waffles this morning. They were good but it does take some getting use to the coconut especially when you don’t like nuts at all. You do have to like eggs also. The fact the I love bacon helped a lot.
