Coconut and blueberries are a yummy flavour combo, especially when you add a splash of maple syrup. I used coconut oil in place of butter and stirred in some shredded coconut, which gave these waffles extra flavour and crispness.

Waffles are Perfect For Later

While it’s a treat to have waffles on a weekend morning, who has time on a busy weekday morning? The solution: make extra waffles and freeze them. Then just take out as many as you need, pop them in the toaster, and off you go. If you have a toaster at your workplace, take them along for a desk breakfast. Your co-workers will look at you jealously while they eat their cereal.

More Eggs In Your Waffles = More Protein

Coconut flour is a very dry flour, so this blueberry coconut waffle recipe has a lot of eggs. Which means extra protein. I like that because usually, waffles and pancakes are a carb loaded breakfast that will leave you hungry in a couple of hours. Protein at breakfast will keep you full and satisfied for much longer. I also used coconut flour in this moist and delicious Coconut Banana Bread, and these Coconut Shrimp Tacos, so check out those recipes if you are looking for more ways to use it.

I used frozen blueberries for these waffles, but fresh ones work well too, and you can use any berries that you like. Strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries would all be equally delicious. Maple syrup is my choice for topping, but you can top them with whatever you like. They’re even great with peanut butter (extra protein score).

A Waffle Making Secret: Beat Your Egg Whites

Separating and beating egg whites, then folding into the batter is a waffle secret than results in fluffy, tender waffles. It’s a small extra step, but I notice the difference if I don’t do it. Here’s the science behind it, if you’re interested; How To Make Extra Fluffy Waffles

Sugar Free Waffles

While most waffle recipes contain sugar, I prefer to leave it out. In this recipe, blueberries add just the right amount of sweetness on their own, and maple syrup will sweeten them up even more. Unsweetened waffles are more versatile because they can be sweet or savory after they are cooked.

  7. ? Followed the recipe to a T. New waffle iron I’ve already used so I know it works well. After 15 minutes the waffles were barely brown and left them in another 5 minutes because they didn’t look very crispy. Checked them again and looked more crispy then totally fell apart when I tried to take them out.

    Trying to salvage the rest of my batter as mini loafs, hopefully they cook up right!

    1. Hi Julie! I’m sad that your waffles didn’t turn out! I have made this recipe several times, as have many friends, and I know that they always turn out great. The photos on the recipe were taken right after they were made, and that’s how they should look. If you followed the recipe to a T, as you said, then I think the only thing wrong could have been the temperature of your waffle maker. It does need to be very hot, so 15 minutes seems way too long for waffles. What is the make and brand of your waffle maker?
