Toasted Nutmegged Almond and Coconut Waffles

I wanted to be specific with the title so you knew the yummy goodness that this waffle offers.  I got the idea for adding the nutmegged (is that an adjective) almonds from the Klutzy Chef and loved the flavor so much I tried it in a lot of different things.  I also love toasted coconut so I always add this as well and the combination is awesome.  Add fresh fruit on top and you've got some amazing flavors and textures.

Toasted Nutmegged Almond and Coconut Waffles

Basic waffle recipe  (One of my favorites is this one, minus the bacon of course.)
Sliced almonds
Shredded coconut
Sliced fruit (optional)

Whip up your waffle batter.  Spread sliced almonds on cookie sheet and lightly spray with cooking spray or lightly drizzle with vegetable or olive oil, toss until they are all lightly coated.  Sprinkle with nutmeg then toss again.  Add shredded coconut to the cookie sheet.  Put your oven on broil and (set a timer if you're like me and you always forget and/or have set your oven on fire the last time you toasted coconut) toast the coconut and almonds until lightly browned.

When you're ready to make your first waffle, pour batter onto hot waffle iron then sprinkle generously with cinnamon, coconut, and almonds, right there on top of the batter.  Close the lid on that sucker and wait til all that deliciousness is baked right inside of that hot, fluffy waffle.

Slice fresh fruit on top and drizzle slather with syrup.  I can almost smell the nutmeg and cinnamon right now.

  1. Oh, thank you, Nicole. I have been wanting to try a new waffle recipe (surprise, surprise) but couldn't think of what I really wanted. This was what I really wanted.
