Dairy Free Coconut Waffles For Mother’s Day!



Dairy Free Coconut Waffles

A waffle iron was something I forgot to register for when we got married – so until recently I’d never made waffles before! I recently got this Bella Stainless Steel Rotary Waffle Iron  to try out and LOVE it — and the price (under $30!). I know when Piper gets older it will be a fun weekend tradition to make and eat waffles together….but until then I’ve been enjoying them on my own and have made this Coconut Waffle recipe twice now. I tweaked this recipe from Bon Appetit. and it would be the perfect dish to serve on Mother’s Day this weekend! 

Dairy Free Coconut Waffles

I serve these with a dollop of coconut yogurt (vanilla flavored) and kumquats that I had simmered with a little sugar & water for about 20 minutes.
