Unbelievably light, crispy, and covered in a warm chai-spiced maple syrup, these easy coconut oil waffles are quickly going to become a breakfast staple in your house!
I might have just found the breakfast I want to eat every single morning til the end of all time.
Yeah, it’s waffles. And I’m quite obviously a total pancake kinda girl, judging from the vast quantity of pancake recipes around here. And yet, these waffles might be changing my mind? I think I just need to eat more before I can decide.
There are quite a few contributing factors as to why these coconut oil waffles are pretty much total breakfast insanity. The waffles are light, crispy, and quite-honestly-I-just-want-to-eat-them-straight-off-the-waffle-iron.
Except I also reaaaaaally wanna eat them with a warm chai maple syrup too. <<< honestly a waffle game-changer.
A big game-changer, FYI. As most things are when you dump liquid gold on top of them.
Okay, so keeping things short in the chatter department today so you can get straight to your weekend coconut oil waffles plans. >> let’s talk waffle batter for a sec.
This waffle batter is pretty basic only what makes it different from all the others is not-so-secretly the addition of coconut oil. I swear it makes these waffles like 1000x lighter and crispier than all others.
In other words, puh-leeeeeeeze do not sub any other oil for the coconut oil. Under no circumstances.
Speaking of circumstances…under no circumstances should you forget about the warm chai maple syrup. It literally takes less than FIVE minutes to throw together, and again…it’s just a waffle game-changer.
In the most amazing ways you could ever imagine of a waffle.
You know your weekend needs the best waffles ever. You’re about to have the best weekend ever, FYI. ♥
