Tasty Thursday’s Blogging Event – Pina Colada Waffles And Syrup

Blog Event: Tasty Thursdays

I love blogging events!  It’s a fun way to interact among the blogging community.  You get to contribute your work and see other blogger’s work.  You can actually discover some really cool things.  I’m a cooking/baking foodie, as many of you know.  I just love it!  So I decided it’d be fun to try out this new blogging event I came across called Tasty Thursday’s. It’s full of everyone’s favorite foods from the week.

Pina Colada Waffles And Syrup

Pina Colada Waffles And Syrup

I love waffles!  There’s nothing like a home-cooked breakfast.  Smelling those comforting breakfast smells first thing in the morning is such a pleasant way to start your day.  I grew up eating cereal most days.  It’s a quick go-to breakfast for most people.  Unfortunately, many lack nutritional value, and very few varieties actually fill you up.  My kids get cereal on vacation, but otherwise, I don’t buy cereal.  I’m partial to real homemade breakfasts where I know what they are actually eating.

It’s summer, and I love tropical flavors.  I can’t get enough pineapple and coconut.  It gives a warm breakfast like waffles, a fun summery twist.  Not to mention, it’s so delicious, I’d eat them year-round.  No doubt, eating these during a blizzard would help your mind escape to the tropics.


1-1/2 cups almond flour

1 tsp baking soda

2 eggs

3 Tbsp coconut cream

1/4 cup honey

4-5 Tbsp pineapple juice

Oil spray

Directions: Plug in waffle iron and allow to warm up while you prepare waffle batter.  Mix all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl with the exception of the oil spray.  I added them in the order listed.  Once batter is thoroughly mixed, lightly spray with oil.  You can now begin making your waffles.  Don’t panic if your first waffle doesn’t come out as well as you’d like.  In all of my years of waffle making, I have yet to figure out how to make a good “first” waffle.  I think my first waffle’s come out well only 2 or 3 times out of many, many times.  After the first waffle, they all come out great.  I suppose it’s a right of passage I have to go through each time.  Also, I was able to make 6 waffles with this recipe.

Ok, so why have pina colada waffles, only to top them with regular syrup?  No clue.  I sure didn’t.  I made a super, quick and easy pina colada syrup to go with them.  Only 3 ingredients, but it takes these waffles to the next level!


1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup pineapple juice

1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk

Directions:  Mix all ingredients together and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes, or you can use the stove to heat it up.

I put a little butter on my waffles before adding the warm pina colada syrup.  For a dairy-free version that would work very well with these waffles, use coconut butter before adding the warm syrup.  Enjoy!

    Thanks for joining, Mireille! I love pina colada; it’s one of my favorite flavors. I’ll definitely try this out! Thanks too for suggesting a dairy-free version. Lactose intolerance can be tough at breakfast.

      Definitely! I love playing in the kitchen. It is so much fun. I’m into clean-eating. I try to marry clean-eating with yummy flavor when I create recipes. Most of my recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free. I’m very paleo-influenced.

    Very interesting article. I learned a lot about waffles with your post and with the help of Google search for waffle iron and other terms new to me. The iron is just like that we use for preparing our roti or chapathi. We prepare them with wheat flour and are very healthy for BP and Diabetic patients.

      I can’t imagine life without waffles! They’re a favorite food in our house. I don’t use wheat, as I have celiac disease. It’s like an allergy to gluten. I’ve learned to bake all kinds of things without the use of grains. My body feels so much better this way!
