Spinach & Almond Flour Waffles
Happy March people!! Every month has its holiday that defines it and I think we all know March = St. Patrick’s Day! I love st. patricks day purely because I have such fabulous memories of walking downstairs that morning as a kid and seeing that the leprechaun had come in and flipped over all the furniture and turned all the food green! The milk was green, there were green bagels – IT WAS A MAD HOUSE. And it was so incredibly fun and exciting. Looking back I can’t believe how much effort my parents put in to making the day special but I cannot wait to do it for my kids someday. That tradition will probably always include these Spinach Almond Flour Waffles! The spinach adds nutrition of course but most of all it adds green and makes me feel like Mr. Leprechaun walked right through the batter.
I made these a couple of weeks ago and made each of them with my little mini waffle iron so I could freeze them, then easily pop them in the toaster for a quick week day breakfast. If I am having these midweek, I like to toast one and top with nut butter and banana, but if it’s weekend time, I am all about the coconut cream + maple syrup like pictured here!
The outside should get a bit browned but when you bite in you will see that super vibrant green color!!
Also, who decided maple syrup should go on waffles and pancakes? I want to give that person a big old hug.
