Egg-less Coconut Waffles

image

My friend, Sherin, has a little girl who is allergic to eggs.  They were over today and I thought to make egg-less waffles for them.  It’s just an egg-less variation of my Coconut Waffles recipe.  It’s a bit chewy and the richness comes from the coconut milk and coconut oil.  It has its charm.  I like it.  In fact, I feel that it resembles closely to our local cake shop waffles which we all love. I added in some flax seed meal to boost up the nutritive value of the waffles.  That’s optional, of course.

 

Egg-less Coconut Waffles (makes about 4)

125 g plain flour

50-75g sugar

2 tbsp flax seed meal (optional)

1 tsp instant yeast

pinch of salt

250 ml coconut milk

3 tbsp virgin coconut oil

Mix all together and leave to proof in a warm place for about 1/2 hour.  Cook in waffle maker.

 

 

 

Coconut Waffles

This is no Belgian waffle.  It is not crisp and high.  Our local cake shop waffle is a bit flat, soft, a bit chewy and full of wonderful coconut flavor.  It comes with an option of plain, peanut butter spread, melted cheese, chocolate spread and blueberry spread.  Some offer more options.  Usually I’ll just have the plain one as I love the coconut flavor and don’t want anything to mask it.

This is my version.  Warning: not a low fat food.

Enjoy it with butter or honey.  But seriously, it doesn’t need any of those.
