When Whole30 ends on a Saturday, you go big for Sunday brunch. & Since eggs and sausage are the usuals on the breakfast menu around here... big = WAFFLES.
My goal for these was to create that delicious "waffle" flavor & texture I had been missing: perfectly soft, thick, & fluffy; but, I wanted it to be done with technically Whole30 compliant ingredients.
I figured this would be the best way to get that "SWYPO"/junk food fix while sticking to the ingredients that my body would appreciate. Because while sweetening these with honey then drowning them in pure maple syrup sounded wonderful, I wasn't so sure that my body would think so. Especially after all that time detoxing from sweets.
So I stuck to dates for my sweetener, and topped my waffle stack with a "fruit syrup"-- just berries & coconut oil. It gave the perfectly sweet/tart, fresh balance to the light, cakey waffles~ and it was super duper easy to do.
I hope you LOVE these waffles like we did. Try them during your "reintroduction" phase after a Whole30, or any ol' time you're in the mood for some Paleo-friendly waffle action.
