Vegan Buckwheat Coconut Flour Waffles 

Vegan Buckwheat Coconut Flour Waffles, I really like the flavours together, and each waffle packs a major nutritional punch! They make such a delicious lunchbox too! You can simply re-heat them up in the waffle machine the next day.

I developed this recipe back in January and never got around to post it! Yes, life can take over sometimes and recipes just had to wait…and sometimes forgotten…oops!

In this lunchbox we have:

  1. 2 vegan buckwheat coconut flour waffles
  2. cherry tomatoes
  3. cucumbers slices
  4. seedless grapes
  5. cashew nuts (in separately container with lid)
  6. pumkin seeds
  7. he usually gets 1 apple (uncut) separately

There is no “no nuts” policy at my son’s Kindergarten in case you wonder. This Planetbox was my 4 years old son’s breakfast & afternoon snack box as he gets lunch at Kindergarten. He absolutely loves this box and I can fit in so many different types of food!

      Coconut Oat Sweet Potato Waffles 

      Super delicious glutenfree Coconut Oat Sweet Potato Waffles. 

      Suitable for BLW babies from 7 months providing no egg allergy.

      There is so much goodness in these waffles and it’s the only way to get my kids to eat sweet potato. It was one of their favourite puree food when we did weaning but somehow their taste bud changed. 😦 

      Why are sweet potato so good for you?

      They are rich in beta carotid which is an antioxidant, a substance that is not only able to fight free radicals, substances that fight cancer.  The more intense the colour, it has more antioxidant.  Choose colourful sweet potato, especially the purple and red.

      These waffles are fluffy and not too sweet which we like as we could top them with fruits of our choice or with nut butter. Our chosen toppings were strawberries for Big Bro, banana and chia seeds for Lil Bro, almond butter and hemp seeds for me. You can’t go wrong with toppings,  the sky is your limit!
