Happy Father’s day to all the papas, daddies, pops, fathers, pas and papi’s out there. This morning I woke up early, went to my quiet and peaceful kitchen and started whipping up some waffles for my Papi. He’s the one that does the cooking for us and today I decided that a nice breakfast would be a kind gesture to someone who has done so much for me. Here’s the recipe, make it for your dad or for a loved one that deserves a special start to the day!
2 1/2 cups flour ( I used a combination of GF Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose and Whole Wheat All-Purpose)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 13.5 ounce can of lite coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 banana, mashed
dash of salt
Preheat the waffle maker. Whisk the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients. Whisk in the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix well, until pourable.
Working in batches, ladle about 1/4 cup of batter into the preheat waffle maker and cook according to the instructions of your waffle maker. You can plate these immediately or you can put them in a preheated oven until ready to serve.
If you don’t have a waffle maker, well gosh darn, but you can still make this recipe! You can simply make pancakes instead, still yummy and filling. Mmm Mmm tasty!
