This recipe was concocted based upon my craving for the natural, exotic and "healthy". I have experimented with it many times to get it right, as coconut flour can be tricky to bake with. You may have to adjust the liquid based on the type of flours you are using, but these proportions work for me. They are light and moist, delicious, taste like part buckwheat, part coconut, part heaven and they're good for you too, (debatable if you smother them with butter and maple syrup as I do).
Preheat your Belgian waffle iron.
Measure and place all dry ingredients in a glass or ceramic mixing bowl.
Separate the eggs, placing the whites aside for the moment.
Combine the egg yolks and coconut oil well, then add the milk and vanilla extract. You may need to place the liquids in the microwave for 30 secs., to keep the coconut oil from solidifying. (You may substitute canola or other vegetable oil in place of the coconut oil.)
Combine the dry ingredients with the milk, egg mixture and blend until batter is evenly mixed. Caution here: DO NOT OVERMIX.
In a separate clean glass or ceramic bowl, whisk the egg whites until frothy and stiff. Gently fold the whites into the batter, again being careful to blend only until evenly distributed.
Pour batter onto well canola oil sprayed, hot waffle iron and cook until evenly browned. Serve with butter, fruit, maple syrup, or whatever excites your palate. I use a square waffle iron and the recipe will make about 6 waffles. You'll get less with a round waffle iron.
The usual warning is advised as for pancakes: do not overmix the batter as leavening will be compromised.
