It’s St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow and while the corned beef is cooking today we are whipping up a huge batch of green waffles! Paleo Parents came up with an amazing recipe and we tripled it and changed it up a bit. These waffles are green inside, due to a chemical reaction between the sun-butter and the baking soda….very cool! Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium banana
  • 3 medium apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 (16oz) container of sun-butter (or you can use smooth almond butter)
  • 6 medium pastured eggs
  • 3 TBSP arrowroot powder
  • 3 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • coconut oil for greasing waffle iron

Directions:

  • Puree apple and banana in a food processor.
  • Use the whisk attachment on your electric mixer and whip sun-butter on high for 2-3 minutes until smooth and fluffed.
  • Add puree and remaining ingredients to whipped sun-butter and continue to whip until combined.
  • Grease your hot waffle maker with coconut oil (for each waffle you make).
  • Use about 1 ladle of batter per 8-by-4-inch waffle onto hot waffle iron for 3-5 minutes until browned. Do not fill up entire waffle maker, leave about 40% unfilled so that the batter can spread. If your waffle is soft or floppy, it’s not ready yet – keep cooking for another minute or two!
  • Eat immediately or store flat in freezer and make your own breakfast by reheating in toaster – the waffles will be firm enough
  • Makes about 2.5 dozen!
