Happy Monday, friends! Hope everyone’s weekend was super fabulous! I had a great one, myself…. date night with the boys, plenty of recipe creation, great workouts and scrumptious eats. Just a little something to tempt you…. I’ll get to the recipe at the end of the post. And if the post gets a too boring, just scroll down because the waffles definitely aren’t boring!
Madelyn was able to spend Friday and Saturday night with her horse-riding buddies and they went to the horse races on Saturday. She had a GREAT time and this left plenty of time for me to hang with the boys. On Friday night, we rented The Internship. It was pretty hilarious, but I’m a bit partial because I LOVE bothand Vince Vaughn, especially when they’re together in a movie.
Saturday, I got in my normal workout of Body Pump and running. When I got home, I created a couple of new recipes, did some stuff around the house and worked on a report that I brought home from work to finish. Then it was date night time! Brad, Landen and I saw Captain America. Landen, below, waiting for the movie to start. Luckily, we were early because it was a full house.
I really enjoyed the move, actually more than the boys. Haha…. I love an action-packed movie! Seriously though, if you like action movies, it is a must see. After the movie, we went out for sushi. I got my usual peppered tuna roll with the green sauce and tried some of Brad’s spicy salmon roll. Love that one!
Sunday was pretty low-key, with a little more kitchen creation. I’ve got a chickpea avocado salad recipe, a deviled egg idea and a super delish meatloaf to share with you later in the week. Since I posted the best ever two ingredient pancake recipe on Friday; I wanted to go ahead and share my recipe for the Four Ingredient Waffle. I woke up Sunday morning with a huge craving for waffles, but I wanted something super easy. I decided to try the basic idea of the two ingredient pancake, but make it more waffle friendly by adding baking powder for fluff and coconut flour for thickness. I’m not positive, but I would bet that if you don’t have coconut flour; almond flour or peanut flour would work. I may try it completely flourless next weekend, but I was afraid it would be too thin and spread too much.
The easiest waffle you'll ever make and it's surprisingly one of the most delicious too! gluten-free, dairy-free, low calorie, high protein and Paleo
- 2 large eggs (cage-free and organic are best)
- 1 ripe banana (the riper, the more sweet)
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1 packet stevia
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
- 1 tablespoon PB2 or nut butter
- 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup blueberries or raspberries
- 2 tablespoons dried cranberries or chopped nuts
- Spray waffle iron with a natural cooking spray and allow it to heat up.
- While your waffle iron is heating; beat eggs together in a shallow bowl. Mash banana into egg mixture, well. Stir in baking powder and coconut flour and any other preferred add-ins.
- I have a large waffle iron to make Belgium waffles and the amount of batter was perfect for one large waffle.
- Top with additional favorites, such as; maple syrup, coconut and fresh fruit.
The waffle was actually way easier and quicker than the pancakes. There’s no flipping involved or guessing when they’re finished cooking.
I also played around with Photoshop some more and reread parts of Lindsey’s ebook, Tasty Food Photography. Such helpful tutorials! If you download the ebook, you also get video tutorials.
Something to think about….
