Instagram has continually been my source of inspiration and creativity for all meal + snack ideas over the last year or so. My methodology: Stuck on what to make? Check out the Instagram feed.
One thing I LOVE about Instagram is the ability to make seriously amazing friends all over the world. Some of you may or may not experience this on your own social media platforms, but I’ve been so blessed to cross paths with some seriously wonderful humans on Instagram. One of these people, Shannon from @fitstrongshann, consistently makes mouth-watering waffles every Wednesday for #wafflewednesday (adorbs, right?) and I always find myself SWOONING over her recipes!
Ironically enough, a family member bought the hubs and I a waffle maker for our wedding, so it was game on! We wanted to make some simple gluten free waffles at first, so we used our favorite GF mix: Pamelas Gluten Free Baking + Pancake Mix.
After mastering those, I decided it was time to channel my inner “Shannon” and try my hand at a completely homemade paleo waffle recipe. This tasty recipe is the result, and I have to say… I am SO pleasantly surprised by the flavor, texture, and how EASY these paleo waffles are to make. I’m so excited to share them with you and know you’re going to LOVE them!
