Almond Waffles with Orange Honey Syrup

I decided to try out another almond waffle recipe! (Why not, right? I still had almond flour left over.) For the record, the syrup is not paleo, but meh! I made them smaller so there would be more batter to go around. The “syrup” is really good (I love the orange tang)! It doesn’t have a syrupy consistency (it’s pretty liquidy), but I didn’t want it to be too sweet.

Almond Waffles with Orange Honey Syrup

Ingredients:
-3 egg yolks
-3 egg whites, room temperature
-1/4 cup coconut milk or milk
-1 cup almond flour
-¼ tsp salt
-1 tsp vanilla if sweet
-1 tsp maple syrup if sweet
-2 tbsp coconut oil, melted

Instructions:
1) Preheat waffle iron.
2) In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks and milk. Add almond flour and salt. Combine until smooth. Add melted coconut oil or butter.
3) Whisk egg whites until they form moist, stiff peaks. Fold about ¼ of egg whites into batter. Fold batter into remaining egg whites in three parts.
4) Scoop 1/3 cup of batter onto a preheated and greased waffle iron. Do not smooth the top of the batter before closing the top of the iron. Close the lid gently!
5) Cook until golden brown.
