    I can’t seem to add this recipe to My Kitchen?? This is a great recipe! I do add a lot more coconut milk to it so my kids eat them. They did not like them at first, once I did this, they loved them!

      Hey Jen! Try refreshing the page when you go into My Kitchen. Sometimes it does not show it at first, but it should go in just fine. I just tried it and it worked for me. Hope this helps – and glad to hear adding coconut milk made them better for your kids. We typically don’t add coconut milk to recipes because of my FODMAP issues. :\ haha oh well!

    I made the pancake version of this recipe for a pre-race snack the morning of a half marathon. I added a mashed banana and some walnuts to the recipe. They were delicious! I made the pancakes the night before and packed them up for race day. They traveled well and made a perfect snack.

    These pancakes are the best coconut flour pancake recipe I’ve ever found. Others can be too dense. These were perfect. They will become a regular staple to lazy Sunday mornings.

    I want to make this recipe but I can’t have raisins. Everything else in the recipe I can have. I just want to see if those who have tried this recipe think it will taste fine w/o the raisins. Thanks!!

    I think this is a great recipe! I leave out the raisins but everything else makes for a delicious waffle!

    Is there a substitute I could use instead of the 4 eggs (allergy)?

    This recipe is very differnt than the one in Make it Paleo. A cup of raisins? None in the original recipe. Also, the directions tell you how to prepare the banana pecan topping yet the ingredients and amounts are not in the ingredient list. Maybe a mistake here?

    Ground flax seeds are a good egg substitute.

    To replace one egg:
    1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
    3 tablespoons water (or other liquid)

    A great recipe for paleo coconut waffles! It’s hard to find a good coconut flour waffle recipe, this is easy to make and they come out perfect! I didn’t add the raisins but piled lots of blueberries, blackberries & strawberries, delicious! This recipe made 3 full size waffles.

    Just made the pan cake version, this is very good much better than the Almond flour recipe. These I like better than regular pancakes

    These are the first successful paleo waffles I have made. I did make some changes to the recipe. I used dried cranberries in place of raisins, mace for nutmeg, 1 TBLS flax meal, 1tsp coconut oil. Served with cinnamon apples cooked in ghee, maple syrup and mace.
    They were very hardy I will definitely make again and maybe add a 1/4 cup of almond butter next time.

    The hub and I aren’t fans of raisins in our food so I mashed up a banana instead. These were easy to make and the texture was great. Very filling. I didn’t make the topping since we had banana in the pancakes already. Great recipe, thanks!
