I was never a fan of putting MCT oil in my coffee. So I decided to create a breakfast recipe that had MCT oil in it! That way I could get the all benefits of consuming MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) in the morning without having to drink it (bleck!).
MCT oil gets a lot of hype for being a great ‘brain power’. Because MCTs are super easy to digest, they are absorbed quickly and converted into ketones, which are the brain’s favorite source of energy during a fast. So, it makes sense that adding MCT oil to your morning break-fast is a good kickstart for your brain. And hey - if you like drinking fat in your coffee, go for it! You can double up on your MCT’s with these waffles for breakfast!
These waffles are seriously the best waffles I have ever had. They are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. And as always, I try to create recipes that support a healing diet. That’s why I use almond flour, MCT oil, collagen powder, and a lot of eggs. Good fat, good protein, and grain/dairy free. What’s not to like?!
Here is the recipe for my PALEO Waffles!
By Molly Bergseid
1/2 cup MCT oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 tbs honey (exclude for Whole30)
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup arrowroot starch
3 scoops (6 TBS) collagen powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, MCT oil, vanilla, and honey.
Sift in the almond flour, arrowroot starch, collagen powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until just combined and set the batter aside.
Turn on the waffle maker and let it preheat for 3-4 minutes.
Pour the batter into the waffle maker (I use 1/4 cup per waffle) and close the press. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Repeat until all the batter is gone.
Top with fresh fruit and maple syrup or honey.
