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.
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.
