oh hi waffles. yes please i'll eat 28 of you.

i have the most delish waffle recipe ever for you today.
i wish i could take credit for it, but alas, my good friend kelly is the lady behind it.
she made these for a girls night we had a few months ago (prior to me being sick)...and i swear i ate 12 in one sitting.
complete with whip cream, strawberries, chocolate chips, etc.
they are so good.
{waffles}

{toppings}

{hadley and her work of art}

here's the recipe:
2/3 C flour (i used whole wheat)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 T sugar
3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 C milk
1/2 C & 1 T oil (i use coconut oil)

mix dry ingredients together in a big bowl. 
beat egg whites until stiff (don't allow any of the yolks to mix in or the whites won't stiffen). 
add egg yolks, milk and oil to the dry ingredients.  mix thoroughly.  (i actually used a blender for this part, because when you use coconut oil, it conforms to whatever temperature it's at.  the milk was cold and therefore made the oil chunk up.  the blender took care of this).
gently fold in egg whites into batter (do this with a spatula, and if you mix/whip it together the waffles will end up flat in the end).
pour batter onto preheated waffle maker (if you don't have a waffle maker, you can always do what mr. anderson did and wake up on black friday at 3 in the mornin' to get a good deal on one...cause you know, having a waffle maker is that important.)

so, i DOUBLED this recipe for my family of 7.  and in reality, i probably should have tripled it.
the kids topped theirs off with chips and leftover chipotle cause they were still hungry.
nothing like waffles then chipotle.


{mamas' waffle.  delish}


and if you eat 12 of them like me, your belly might end up looking like this:
{please note, fingerprints all over my mirror.  evidence of little people}

happy waffle eatin'.

  3. ok. there should be a warning that pops up on your blog before one can read a post as delicious as that...especially for the preggos.

    because now i have to go to the store and then make these immediately.

    my whole day is now thrown off.
