Welcome to the Festival of Food Carnival. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we’re sharing recipe ideas for “love foods” or foods to share with loved ones. Hosted by Diary of a First Child and Hybrid Rasta Mama, you’re welcome to join us next time, or if you have a previously published recipe you’d like to share, add it to the linky below.

Happy Almost Valentine’s Day! I’ll admit it. I am a sucker for a little romance and there is something special about celebrating the love I have for my husband with his favorite foods.

I’m not typically a big waffle lover. Sure, they can taste good but I’ll be honest. I have NEVER found a recipe that I absolutely loved. However, my husband adores waffles so what better way to say I love you than to make him one of his favorite breakfasts?

Recently, I was doing some serious work on Pinterest and stumbled on a couple of waffle recipes that I thought might just work for me. I took the liberty of combining the two and the result was fabulous! Chocolate Grain Free Love Waffles was officially born! I cannot wait to surprise my husband with these tomorrow. Go ahead. Give them a try! I promise you will love them! Plus they are super nourishing too.

This is not my waffle photo. My waffle photo was not nearly this gorgeous.

Chocolate Love Waffles

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces of organic cottage cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/8 cup coconut milk (or your other favorite milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Juice from 1/2 of a large lemon

Directions

  1. Add the cottage cheese, eggs, vanilla, cocoa powder, coconut flour, and coconut milk into the blender and puree. Let it sit for about 30 minutes for the coconut flour to soak up the moisture and thicken. If it gets too thick, you can add more milk until you get your preferred consistency.
  2. About 5 minutes before you put the waffles in the iron, add the baking powder and baking soda and the juice of a lemon. Whisk. Your mixture will start bubbling.
  3. Add the batter to the waffle iron and feast your eyes on some Chocolate Love Waffle goodness.

These pair well with a fresh strawberry topping or even some fresh whipped cream. Basically, anything that tastes great with chocolate makes a fabulous topping!

Are you a waffle lover? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Yours Truly,

Lindy

Hmm . . . I wonder if I could make these egg/dairy free. They look delicious! I’m just not sure what I’d sub for the cottage cheese.

These sound absolutely fabulous! I love waffles, but always, always suffer indigestion from them. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t with the coconut flour though. These are going on my food to try list, for sure!

Just saw this one from last month…my main (nutritional) problem with waffles and pancakes is that they are so carby with so little protein…Love the use of cottage cheese here, and wonder what it would be like with half almond flour too…will report back when I try it!! Thanks for the inspiration!
