Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Now that Thanksgiving is over, and I feel like I’ve gained 10 pounds, it’s time to get back in action! Except I was all ready to start getting back into the swing of things today, except my alarm didn’t go off for the gym. I guess fate wasn’t with me today.
I did get to go to the gym over the holiday break, and even ran in a 5k Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. Funny thing about that was 2 years ago I finished in 31-minutes. This year, my race time was about 25-minutes. It crazy what hard work over the past couple years can do!
Anyway, we made these waffles last Sunday and they were absolutely amazing! Instead of normal white flour, I opted for almond flour and tapioca flour, which help keep the texture of the waffle. Then for more flavor and “fluffy-ness” I used unsweetened applesauce that my in-laws canned for us this fall.
These waffles are completely paleo, gluten-free, sugar free, and whole 30 (if you don’t smother the top of them with syrup)! And the mixture is easy enough that you can add in blueberries, chocolate, or whatever else to make them have even more flavor (and be more fun)!
Hope you enjoy! 🙂
