Mother’s day is coming soon and that is the kind of recipe I would love for breakfast! I know my husband read my blog and even if he is not a really good cook I am sure he can make this recipe easily with my little one. I love simple recipes for breakfast and those paleo waffles are super easy to make. It took barely 10 minutes to prepare the batter and only 3 minutes to cook a pair of paleo waffles in a hot iron.
But what are Paleo waffles? Paleo waffles are waffles that are dairy free and wheat free. In this recipe I used a combo of almond meal and coconut flour as a wheat substitute and I choose Original Almond Milk from Almond Breeze as a dairy replacement. As I love to add some greens to my breakfast I added kale in the batter. The result is absolutely amazing. Those paleo waffles are thick, moist and slightly crispy on the borders : simply how a waffle should be!
Kale Paleo Waffles – low carb alternative recipe
I sweetened the batter using a banana which added an extra fluffy texture to those paleo waffles. However I know that some of you prefer lower carb breakfast recipe and that is why I also tested the recipe using almond butter as a banana replacement. It works perfectly well too! Simply swap the banana but 1/4 cup of almond butter (or peanut butter). It works like magic ! The batter will be slightly less sweet so I recommend to add 1 or 2 teaspoon of stevia to enhance the sweetness in this case. I topped my waffles with apple syrup, frozen raspberries and sliced almonds. Again the sweetener is very optional here specially if you make the recipe using a banana ! Those paleo waffles are already sweet and you can simply top up with seeds, nuts and berries for a low sugar alternative.
I have been very lucky to team up with Almond Breeze to develop this yummy paleo waffles recipe. Note that I only recommend product that I love and that I use on a daily basis. You can find the Original Almond Breeze Almond milk in any supermarket in New Zealand in the UHT milk aisle. Enjoy ! Carine.
