Never thought this would happen but yesterday as Gary was heading out for work our garage door wouldn’t open. Both of our cars were parked inside. He was able to take Michelle’s car into work. Luckily we didn’t have any urgent plans that morning. We are renting the home we are in and let the landlord know about our issue. We were able to get an electrician to come out later that morning to fix it. Yay. Now we have a fully working garage. Something I won’t take for granted again.
Seems so silly but when you can’t access your car it kinda freaks you out. It’s funny how you can take the little things in life for granted like garage doors working so you can get to your car. Who would have thought you wouldn’t be able to leave your house due to garage doors not opening? Has this happened to you before?
In our home we like to be preventive about things when we can but find it difficult to do with certain things like garage doors.
Today’s recipe has nothing to do with garage doors. It has everything to do with our obsession with waffles!
If you’re new to purely twins world you might have noticed we love plantains and we make a lot of recipes out of plantains.
We love making plantain waffles because it makes making our plantain bread super quick. As using the waffle maker cooks faster than the oven. The biggest reason why we tend to make waffles more over our bread–the time factor. #truth

After sharing how we make our plantain bread a few different ways we felt like it was time to share how we make our waffles in 4 different ways.
If you’ve been following us on snapchat or watch what we eat in a day videos you will see that we eat these waffles a lot. Like A LOT. Just about every day.
We are okay with that. It works for us and makes us happy.
Other people eat oatmeal every day. Then others eat sweet potatoes daily. We eat plantains. #plantainloversclub
These waffles satisfy us so much and we love them. Can you tell?
We love them so much we had to share with you how we make them. Most of the time we enjoy some form of waffle for our post-workout meal.
These waffles are easy to make and easy to digest, which makes them great for others that are busy and want a quick healthy meal. We enjoy these waffles usually for lunch or dinner.
If you are in the market for trying something new when it comes to waffles give one of these variations a try.
Promise you will fall in love with how easy they are to make and how soft and tasty they are.
These waffles can be made sweet or savory. We have enjoyed them all different ways as you saw in the video. We like topping them with different things – all depending on our mood.
Paleo plantain waffles made 4 different ways with minimal ingredients and no almond flour.
Few notes about the ingredients.
You can use plantain flour or another flour for the plantains if you can’t get access to real plantains. One note about plantain flour – it does provide a little bit more dense and chewy texture and it works best with eggs.
If you want to follow the protein waffle you can use any protein powder of your liking. Make sure it is one you like because you will taste it. You could also try to use gelatin (green bottle) if you like.
If you want your waffles sweet make sure to use more ripe plantains (which will also make the waffles softer in texture) and add in a few drops of stevia or 1 tablespoon sweetness of choice.
We sometimes like to add in coconut flour to provide a softer texture. It is optional.
The chocolate waffles are more “milk” chocolate like not a rich chocolate waffle.
We don’t put sugar in our waffles therefore the texture is not crispy as traditional waffles.
If you are in the market for fun and creative ways to enjoy the classic waffle make sure to give one of these recipes a try.
One great thing about these waffles is that they don’t take a lot of ingredients to make and they are nut free.
These aren’t like your traditional waffles where you add sugar and milk (or buttermilk). We omitted those ingredients as we wanted to use as little ingredients as we could. Less is more, right?
Making waffles has never been so fun and easy! Just the way we like.
