I’m writing to you today from Portland, OR. I know, so fun right!?!?! I’m here for the Nutritional Therapy Association‘s annual conference, to learn a whole lot about what’s new in health and nutrition, eat lots of delicious food, explore the city, and to hang out with all my awesome NTP friends. Let’s be honest, it’s mostly about the hanging out with friends and eating food. Because that’s what’s important in life right? Friends and food!

And speaking of friends and food, one of my favorite things to do is feed my friends delicious food. I think I get that from my mom. She’s all about it. And one of her favorite things to make for people is breakfast food like pancakes, waffles, or french toast (or brownies or cookies, but that’s not what this post is about).

I don’t know what it is about breakfast foods that makes them fun to share with people. Maybe it’s that they are fun to make. Maybe it’s that they can be covered in all different sorts of toppings. Maybe it’s that they are incredibly comforting and remind us of our childhood. Maybe it’s just that they are so delicious. Probably all of the above.

So I wanted to create a waffle recipe that could be shared with pretty much anyone, regardless of dietary preference or restrictions. Because everyone deserves to have delicious breakfast food topped with all sorts of goodness and shared with friends. These waffles are good for anyone following a basic paleo/primal diet, the Autoimmune Protocol, or anyone who just needs to avoid nuts, eggs, grains, gluten and/or dairy. So pretty much anyone except the low carbers out there… they are definitely NOT low carb!  But what’s life without some real, whole food carbs? Not worth living if you ask me! This recipe is based on my deliciously crispy Pumpkin EggNO’s, and if you’d prefer a pumpkin flavored waffle over these plain ones, check out that recipe!

    These are so good, especially with some nut butter and maple syrup 😉

    And also your signature decal! Adorable.

    These look great! Wondering if there’s a replacement for the plantains/pumpkins. I’m doing an elimination diet that can’t use either (along with eggs and dairy) and i JUST bought a waffle iron I want to make protein waffles in (obsessed with protein powder things). So far the two recipes I’ve tried involved flax eggs and sweet potato mash but they don’t hold together well! Suggestions?

      I was going to suggest mashed sweet potato or another root veggie (maybe cassava?), but if that hasn’t worked for you then maybe banana. But probably not a super ripe one.

      I’m not sure. I’ve never had that issue. You could try adding a little more tapioca starch to thicken it up a bit. The batter should be runny similar to normal waffle batter though. It just tends to stick to the pan more, which is why greasing your waffle iron really well is necessary.
