What You'll Need
  • 1/2 + 1/4 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure Mexican vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar or granulated stevia
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the coconut evenly over the baking sheet and bake for 3-5 minutes or until a lightly golden color. Turn on your waffle iron to heat it up.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and ½ c. of the toasted coconut using a whisk. Mix until smooth.
  3. When the waffle maker is hot and ready, spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour about ¼ c. to ½ c. of batter into the waffle iron and cook waffles according to the instructions in your waffle manual. I cooked mine for 2:30, flipping the waffle iron over at the 1:30 mark.
  4. Top with the remaining ¼ c. of toasted coconut.

I love these! I really need to get my long-neglected waffle maker out of storage :)

Lori, you must break that waffle maker out stat! I know that i am trying to use mine more often, especially for weekend brunches! These waffles are absolutely delish!

Seriously! Well, there's a 3-day weekend this weekend that seems perfect for brunch. I do have a can of LIGHT coconut milk already open in the fridge. Do you think that'll work?

Oh yes, light coconut milk will work just fine, I have even used almond milk when it's all I have on hand and they have come out just perfect :)

this recipe sounds really good, but I cannot imagine 2 whole tablespoons of Stevia! Just a tiny pinch of Stevia makes things extremely sweet. Is this possibly a misprint?

June, thank you for taking note! I meant 2 teaspoons! Which Stevia do you use? Mine is stevia in the raw, and it's not as sweet...these waffles have the perfect amount of sweetness. :)
