  • For a sweeter waffle, add 1/4 cup of maple syrup to the batter.
  • If you don't have a waffle iron, you can also make these waffles in a large skillet over medium heat. Just heat the skillet over medium heat and add a small amount of coconut oil or butter. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  • These waffles are also great for freezing. Just let them cool completely and then wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat, thaw the waffles overnight in the refrigerator and then heat them in the toaster oven or toaster until warmed through.

These waffles are a great source of protein and fiber, making them a healthy and filling breakfast option.
