Coconut Spiced Waffle

26 Jul

The day has finally come. I now have my own waffle maker.

I have been wanting one for way too long now, and my boyfriend’s amazing mother just gave one to me when coming over the other night! I had to use it the very next day. I must admit my first waffle attempt didn’t come out the prettiest (I’ll share the recipe once it looks as good as it taste) :) But this one came out perfectly!

If you haven’t noticed yet, I am a big fan of pumpkin. Pumpkin everything. There is no “season” for pumpkin in my life. So I decided to make a high protein coconut spice waffle incorporating that lovely taste of fall. The coconut and spiced combination, goes perfectly together! This may have not been the most original recipe, but I was excited about my first waffle and had to share.

What is your favorite waffle flavor? Would you rather make them or have them out??

Waffle recipe below, so that you can make your very own waffle as well!

Anyone else think think waffle looks wrinkly? Haha, but boy was it good!

    YES! Awesome and you know I am going to love it

    It does look like the face of the moon but guess who sees it when it is in your belly? NOBODY!

    And eating waffles frozen from the freezer is nothing like a waffle and more of a pop-tart!
