Coconut Waffles!!

We went to a local diner yesterday – Ludi's downtown which somehow I hadn't realized existed and they are good and cheap. One of their specials was ube pancakes with haupia syrup. But they were out. But this made me realize this morning that I could easily make coconut waffles with what we had in the kitchen!

I searched for some recipes and started with this one but of course modified immediately. The batter was very thick. The author must have used sad, thin coconut milk and not a yummy creamy variety like Aroy-D or Savoy (can't find great links for those but those have pictures.) Anyway to the recipe!



  1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in bowl.
  2. Melt coconut oil and let cool.
  3. Preheat and oil waffle pan. I am generous with oil and oil between rounds so that the outside gets a little crispier.
  4. Lightly scramble eggs. Add coconut cream and vanilla. Add melted coconut oil and mix well.
  5. Mix wet ingredients into dry. Then lightly fold coconut shred into batter.
  6. Let batter rest for a couple minutes. Some recipe I followed ages ago did this so I do all the time.
  7. Spoon batter into iron and spread out a little with a spatula. This one was very thick though so I had to depend on closing the lid to spread it out fully.

I have no pictures because lighting and indistinct shades of near-brown are not appealing food photography but they were very tasty. We mixed the rest of the coconut cream with some maple syrup and pomegranate juice concentrate to make a topping and it was delicious. Mmmmm.
