This is a delicious paleo recipe using coconut flour. Coconut flour is so versatile and a great way to boost your fibre intake. This batter can also be used for pancakes or blinis if you don’t have a waffle maker. My waffle maker is by Cuisinart Waffle Maker, 1000Wcuisinart and robust enough to cope with the boys using it regularly. Make up a batch for breakfast or brunch – they are delicious served with poached fruits, berries and coconut yogurt.  To boost the protein content swap the cocoa powder for a chocolate protein powder.

Psyllium husks are a great way to improve the texture in grain free batters and breads. It’s also a wonderful source of soluble fibre to support digestive function. Try adding a spoonful to paleo muffins and breads to improve the texture. You can also use psyllium mixed into a little water as a replacement for eggs in a recipe.
