Waffles are no longer just for your sweet tooth! This recipe uses a combination of almond flour, coconut flour grated zucchini, Yellowbird hot sauce and extra spices to bring you a savory waffle like never before! One that is flavorful, satisfying, and healthy!
Hot Sauce Heaven
If you haven’t tried Yellowbird before, you definitely need to put it on your to-do list. They have an original and an organic line, and they have so many fun options. There are five to try:
- Blue Agave Sriracha
- Ghost pepper
Serrano is their most popular, the blue agave has a great mix of spicy and sweet which makes it so fun and versatile, the habenero is my personal fave, and the ghost pepper is truly for the brave!
Besides the fact they are super tasty – they never use added preservatives, artificial anything, and slow cook their peppers to really bring out their flavor. If you want to check them out further, shop them online here or find them in a store near you!
So after you make a round of these if you are looking for some sweet dishes to round out your brunch I’ve got you covered. Check out my triple chocolate avocado zucchini bread, my fresh peach paleo pancakes, and my cold brew donuts for a brunch you won’t soon forget!
Let’s Make some Savory Waffles!
So the first tip is for the zucchini. It doesn’t matter if you use a small or larger grater, either will work. I used a smaller one though. That was just so the pieces of zucchini “mix in” better and you dont really notice them! The real key is to get as much of the moisture out of them as possible. This way our waffles don’t get mushy. Do this simply by patting it with paper towels or a cloth until you’ve gotten as much out as you can (it will never be fully gone and that is okay!). Or use a nut milk bag and strain. You can even sprinkle some salt on them to bring out excess moisture.
Other than that it is pretty straightforward! Just dont make these too big because then the batter gets a little delicate. The smaller they are the crispier and easier to handle!
I have used both the agave sriracha and the habanero sauce for the actual waffles and think both of them are great. However I recommend the agave sriracha for the syrup.
And feel free to use more or less spice depending on your preference!
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- a waffle maker
- a large mixing bowl
- a spoon or whisk
