Hi friends of Colourful Palate! I’m happy Charissa invited me to post over, I’ve been a fan of her blog for a while!
Today, I’m sharing one of my all time favorite recipes. It’s super easy, incredibly delicious and low in fat, coconut waffles for one! As you can see in the below photo, I topped mine with a heaping helping of fat-free whipped cream and a pineapple shaped like a star. What’s more tropical than that?
This recipe makes just enough delicious waffle for one hungry person, which is perfect for me because I seriously struggle with portion control issues. If there were more than just one of these divine, soft and fluffy waffles, I’m pretty sure I’d eat them. Despite being full. Yep, I have a problem. It’s called being a foodie.
Another reason for the creation of just one waffle is simple, my hubby is deathly allergic. So, makes portion control a breeze and keeps him alive. Win win! I’ve made this recipe a few times and whenever I do, I tell him I’m making the “lethal tropic one.” I think I’ve ever referred to them on my own blog as that. But, unless you have an allergy, this waffle won’t kill just.
However, this breakfast will make make you crave a tropical vacation, so maybe hide your credit card and block any travel sites while you eat it :) Recipe adapted from The Corner Kitchen. Serves 1. Prep time: >5 minutes. Cook time: 5 – 7 minutes
