Weekends are for brunch, and I like to make waffles more often than not! These are some of my favorite waffles to make, mainly because I’m obsessed with almond butter, and so is winecoach. Have tropical fruits at home? Use them!
They work beautifully here, like this fresh papaya, coconut rasps and pecan pieces! In addition to being delicious, papaya is low in carbohydrates, it is very nutritious, rich in Vitamin A and C and also filled with antioxidants. Best of all: it contains an enzyme called papain which is so helpful in the digestion of proteins and nutrient absorption maintaining a functioning digestive system. The best tasting papayas I’ve ever had are in Brazil, but when in Rome….You enjoy them as well!
