I am sitting on my bed with the sun streaming through the window eating ‘off cuts’ of these while I write this. Well if I’m being honest I actually finished eating while I waited for my computer to start up….
I love snacking and have a serious sweet tooth so these are an afternoon life saver for me! I created them to use up the last of the coconut butter I made a couple of weeks ago. And they are delicious. They are sweetened with dates, I only use 4 in the whole recipe as too many kills my tummy. If you can’t tolerate them at all you could easily replace with maple or rice malt syrup. Just add by the tablespoon until the mixture sticks together…. I’d start with 2Tbs.
This is so delicious. I made this a month or so ago but sometimes I dream about it. It fills the house with such a delicious smell. And slathered in peanut or almond butter – or just plain butter – it is ridiculous. This also passed the boyfriend test and he is both a lover of sweet things and banana bread so I feel that speaks volumes.
This probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone who has just read the above title. But it is always best to be upfront about these things. Here it goes: you need to start this recipe a day ahead. Maybe a few hours would be fine… but I haven’t tried that! It is so worth it though. The flavour develops so much more and makes for delicious, crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside waffles. What could be better?
