Ever since we have found out Lucy has a dairy allergy, I hate to say this, but I felt a little shorted on all the good food. I am SUCH a dairy fan and used to eat cheese with pretty much every meal, have a yogurt a day, and maybe even a glass of milk with fruit as a snack. Oh yeah, I was over doing it big time!
But honestly, I have felt better than ever since giving dairy up! And it has made losing the baby weight REAL easy. Most things I would have eaten before just need simple tweaks to make them dairy free- like our favorite waffle recipe! How simple! It helps me feel like I’m still getting to splurge on food.
Dairy Free Waffles
revised using Basic Waffle Recipe from “Waffles”
2 large eggs
1 1/2 c coconut milk (I used sweetened)
1/2 c canola oil (any oil you have will work though!)
1 t pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 c flour
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
Fresh fruit or nuts (optional)
1. Whisk together wet ingredients.
2. Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Make a well in dry ingredients and pour wet mixture in. Mix together until smooth. Add in any other desired ingredients like fresh fruit or nuts.
*** We use this waffle maker and absolutely love it!
