Light & Crispy Waffles

My partner and I love waffles. They are so so SO tasty!

But most of the grain-free/paleo versions out there just don't have the crisp that I'm looking for OR they weigh a ton of bricks! This is where cassava flour really helps us out! This is a minimally processed starchy flour made from... you guessed it, cassava root (also called yuca)! I really like Otto's Cassava Flour (find it on Thrive Market for the best price!) and Anthony's Cassava Flour. It's clearly pricier than standard flours, but it's totally worth it for a tasty treat. Plus it's great for folks who can't do nut-based treats. 

Cinnamon Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Cinnamon Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Okay there are about a million recipes out there for chia pudding, TBH. But here's MY take on it. The coconut milk, cinnamon and vanilla give it that horchata feel (in a totally not authentic and maybe it's just me way.). The pudding is a pretty great balance of healthy fat, protein and a kick of carbs, so it makes a deeeelightful breakfast too. Dessert for breakfast. whaaa? I know!
