I think a lot of you know that I am obsessed with Costco! One of the things I always stock up on when I go there is organic bananas and plantains because they're both like dirt cheap!!! Especially if you're doing AIP or an AIP Whole 30 then platains are like a godsend! I first fell in love with their versatility when I did my AIP Whole 30 back in January of 2015 and my love for them has only grown. I should mention that this recipe is unfortunately NOT AIP friendly but it's still a winner if you can tolerate eggs!
I've been craving waffles for weeks but every recipe needed some kind of nut butter or some kind of milk (like coconut milk or almond milk) and I don't have any on hand at the moment. I'm also on a strict budget and those fall under a category of not cheap and not a necessity at the moment. So yeah.
Back to the plantains...
If you don't like them at first, trust me I'm sure there is some way or another that you will! Maybe at a different ripeness or prepared differently. I mean these things literally transform depending on how ripe they are and how you choose to use them!
They're also a GREAT Paleo friendly starchy carb option. I don;t know why people have this misconception that sweet potatoes are the only Paleo friendly carb out there... It kind of drives me insane! There's Yuca, Taro, Plantains, Spaghetti Squash, Jicama, Rutabaga, and a ton more! PLUS most of these options are LOWER in sugar content than sweet potatoes are so they're a more suitable carb source for those of you trying to get you insulin in check AKA my PCOS Cysters!!!
Okay enough rambling and onto this magical deliciousness!
I seriously like died, these were SO easy and SO good! I talked all about my process over on snapchat! I chose to oil my waffle iron with organic extra virgin coconut oil! Also my snapchat name is HARRMOONEY. Go find me like stat! You can also see all the unique ways I used my waffles since I didn't eat them with traditional syrup - I used them as a clean "bun" or "bread" option.... I'll be sharing more of those pics on my IG over the course of the next few days!
Today's recipe is from realfoodwithdana.com and these waffles are freaking LEGIT!!! Just look at her pic!
