Instructions

  • Prepare your flax egg in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar and mix well. Then add the coconut milk, applesauce and shredded coconut and mix until just combined. Do not over mix, a few lumps is perfectly fine.
  • Heat your nonstick waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's directions, approx 5-7 minutes for each batch. Cook longer for crispier waffles, and less for softer waffles.
  • Serve with more coconut, blueberry chia jam, maple syrup, or fresh fruit.

Notes

Make sure your waffle iron is very HOT before adding the batter to prevent sticking.
Do not lift the lid before the waffles are ready, or they may break. Wait at least the minimum number of minutes as set out by the manufacturer instructions before checking the level of doneness.
Use canned coconut milk, and do not sub for another plant milk. The fat content is needed for crispier waffles, especially since this recipe does not call for oil or butter.
