Paleo Caramel Apple Waffles
There’s no doubt about it…
Fall is my absolute favorite time of year.
Between the cooler temperatures which require cozy slippers and lighting the wood stove, the colorful, crunchy leaves, and the shorter days which call me to bed earlier and earlier, fall is my idea of heaven.
But the food???
Oh, fall food. How I love thee!
Pumpkin, cider, cinnamon spice, and of course, apples!
And magically, the flavors also mimic the colors outside. Orange pumpkins echo bright orange leaves. Brown cinnamon is reminiscent of brown leaves, raked into a pile. And deep red apples mimic the red maple leaves that surround us here in northeastern Minnesota.
Fall’s flavors are deep and rich — just like WFN’s coconut syrup.
What Is Coconut Syrup?
Coconut syrup is similar in color to molasses and similar in consistency to maple syrup. It is rich, buttery, and caramel-y.
Coconut palm sap is simmered until all the water is gone and the thick syrup remains — not unlike how maple syrup is made!
Like it’s cousin, coconut sugar, coconut syrup is lower on the glycemic index than sweeteners like agave nectar, honey, maple syrup, and cane sugar. This means it doesn’t cause the rapid spikes in blood sugar that most sweeteners cause.
We use coconut syrup as a lazy caramel substitute in our house. Unlike caramel, it requires no boiling. Its goodness can be enjoyed straight from the jar!
So with an abundance of crisp apples and a jar of WFN coconut syrup in my pantry, caramel apples were calling my name… though not in the usual way.
Infused with caramel apple flavor, these Paleo waffles are a welcome autumnal addition to breakfast. (Though, truth be told, when I photographed this recipe, we ate them for dinner immediately afterward!)
Paleo waffles aren’t made with wheat flour like traditional waffles. They’re totally grain-free! If you’re watching your carbs or just avoiding grains, you can enjoy these amazing waffles with zero guilt.
Don’t Forget About Thanksgiving Breakfast!
Hey, these grain-free waffles make the PERFECT breakfast for Thanksgiving morning!
Since people still wake up hungry, even on Thanksgiving Day, you can feed a house full of company with a batch or 3 of these Caramel Apple Waffles. You only need a blender and a waffle iron — less dishes for later, right!?
