Sweet Bacon Waffle Sticks
Since I was breaking menu protocol anyway...yes, I do that sometimes. Best laid plans and all...I decided to morph my coconut flour doughnut recipe into a waffle stick. It totally worked. So this is the not most natural recipe in my collection. I did take advantage of some sugarfree waffle syrup, and my other secret ingredient--Capella drops in the Sizzlin' Bacon flavor. Don't panic, it will be good without 'em as well. Inspired by the frozen food section and their many flavors of waffle, I decided to go for it. John and I were both enamored by this waffle. Savory bacon and sweet maple. That is a combo I was born to love!
For waffles, I added an extra egg to thin the batter a bit and some more baking soda to make it fluffier. I also used waffle syrup rather than the Da Vinci's. Here's the recipe. Extra bacon flavor or not.
Sweet Bacon Waffles
1 strip of crumbled cooked bacon
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 packets sugar substitute
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 large eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil (OR coconut oil bacon dripping blend)
2 tbsp sugarfree waffle syrup
10 drops of Capella Sizzlin' Bacon flavoring drops (optional)
Additional syrup for topping
Fry bacon. Cool and crumble. Combine the coconut flour, sweetener, and baking soda. Stir in the eggs, oil syrup and drops. Mix until well combined. If your environment is cool and the mixture becomes too thick, just warm it in the microwave 15-30 seconds until thinned. Stir in the bacon crumbles. Spoon the batter into a heated waffle iron, sprayed with non-stick spray if necessary. Cook 3-4 minutes depending on the thickness of the waffle. Serve with additional syrup if desired.
If you don't have Capella flavor drops, I would suggest just replacing a couple tablespoons of coconut oil with bacon drippings. That will boost the flavor! These are just plain good. Who needs the carbs in the freezer section anyway?
