Breakfast Coconut Waffles

Saw this lovely recipe for chocolate coconut high fibre waffles today. Couldn’t pin it, so here it is for you. With thanks to Christine Bailey who wrote it and shared it in the Protexin newsletter.

I like the idea of using Lepicol, a psyllium husk, chicory and probiotic mix that is really good usually for bowel health so it’s a double-whammy in  one: gut healing and grain free. Leave out the cocoa powder and it is Barrier Plan safe too.

Not Christine’s picture as sadly I couldn’t copy and paste that one so here are some nice similar-looking waffles for you to drool over.

Breakfast Coconut Waffles

This is a fantastic easy waffle recipe using coconut flour so making it perfect if you are avoiding grains or gluten. If you don’t have a waffle maker you can use the batter to make blinis in a frying pan instead. Using Lepicol helps bind the mixture 
and creates a lovely moist waffle.

    Hi Micki: Thanks for sharing the recipe. i am just asking why baking powder would be recommended, since it contains flour which has gluten. I would also like to know what is Lepicol. Forgive my craziness, but I have never heard of it. I have found perfectly delicious yoghurts that are made from coconut, and not just coconut flavour. I have been buying these for the past year from Ocado. They are called CoYo coconut milk yoghurt. They are dairy free, soya free, gluten free, lactose free, with no added sugar. They contain tapioca starch, and seem not to hurt me.

    Most starches cause me Colitis, and I generally suffer for a week or so not able to mix with people because of bad smelly winds. I get starch free medication from a company called Solgar, who give me first hand advice for my problems. My GP has been very cooperative and works so well with me. Tremenduous! I get my coconut milk products from OCADO, and from a Thai supermarket in Leamington Spa. I am contented now as long as I stick to things that do not hurt me. This is just to give an input, and feedback.

    I hope you are well and send my very fond wishes.


    • Hi Evonne, not all baking powder has stuff in. I use bicarb of soda which is fine but there are other brands that are fine – just watch your labels. I did write about CoYo yogurts and the sugar used for the probiotic is rice if I recall so not TGF safe sadly. For Lepicol, just pop it into Google and it will come up. It is a Pre and Probiotic powder.
