It seems like anything and everything has its own “day” now. Seriously, there’s a whole website that lists what each national “whatever” day it is. For instance, today, August 25th, is simultaneously National Whiskey Sour Day, National Kiss and Make Up Day, National Secondhand Wardrobe Day and National Banana Split Day. While I love a reason to celebrate, things are getting out of hand! And who gets to decide these days?! For instance, why can’t National Pumpkin Pie Day be on my birthday? Who thought it was a good idea to make this December 25th!?
Anyway, enough ranting. One national day I did decide to celebrate was National Waffle Day. I didn’t even realize it was waffle day until half way through my day on Monday but I knew I had to honor it so I set out that night to make waffles! I mean really, how can you not love waffles?! While pancakes are definitely delicious, there’s something about waffles that I can’t get enough of. I think part of this love comes from my love for maple syrup. A waffle is infinitely better at holding syrup than any pancake. It’s basically built to hold perfect little pools of syrup in every cavern. Sadly, I’m steering clear of syrup at the moment but I still couldn’t resist making a delicious waffle. I hope you guys enjoy these easy and delicious paleo cinnamon waffles as much as I did!

- 6 tbsp almond flour
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 banana
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp honey (or less, depends how sweet you want your waffle!)
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
- 2 tsp leftover batter
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp honey (more or less depending on how sweet you want it)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- Combine all waffle ingredients in a your food processor and mix until smooth. If you don't have a food processor, mix all ingredients in small bowl, making sure to get out all the lumps!
- Coat waffle iron with coconut oil or ghee, if not non-stick, then spoon in your waffle mixture.
- How long it takes to cook depends on your waffle iron. Mine only took a few minutes. My waffle iron is also square waffles, not a circular iron.
- While waffle is cooking, beat together topping ingredients. It probably won't be super thick, I wanted it more like a syrupy texture. You can use more coconut milk if you want it thicker like a whip cream!
- Place waffles on plate and cover with topping. Enjoy!
- I also enjoy these with a little bit of syrup! Or feel free to add some fruit topping as well.
