I have been making these waffles for years and now my oldest is helping with the measuring, mixing, and breaking of eggs. It's nice to carry on the tradition and I am glad to see my son showing interest. As a former Family and Consumer Science teacher and as a parent, I see great value in teaching my children basic home economics skills. It's funny though when I put on my Home Ec teacher hat and set my (tired/too much to do) Mommy hat aside I have so much more patience with my children when they help in the kitchen.
Coconut oil waffles are super easy to make. I can quickly make the batter and have waffles in no time. I always make a double batch. It's just as easy to double it and have extras on hand as it is to make a single batch. I freeze any extras for busy mornings and easy snacks. They go in the toaster just like eggos, only a section at a time because they are bigger. I sometimes refrigerate extra batter overnight in a covered container and use it the next day for quick waffles.
Notice the homemade blueberry syrup? My husband made amazing blueberry and raspberry syrup. Bringing you those recipes is on my long blogging to do list.
I like using coconut oil in these waffles for the health benefits, but you could use canola or vegetable oil instead.

6. Cook until done, a few minutes or until steaming stops.
Makes 4 waffles in my round waffle maker. You can easily double this recipe so that you can freeze leftovers. Layer waffles between sheets of wax paper and freeze in a ziploc bag.
