I LOVE these Paleo Elvis Waffles!

I have been planning on making these for a while now and am so glad that I did.  These were so good! To make this a paleo recipe (and since I found out through Whole 30 that my body isn’t very fond of legumes) I used almond butter in the waffle batter.  Combined with the banana and bacon in the batter, these waffles made for a nutty, sweet and salty treat! I want to eat these paleo waffles every morning!

I use a Belgian Waffle iron, and this recipe made me 3 gluten free waffles. There is bacon and banana in the batter, but I topped mine with a little extra of each for some extra flavor.  Pour some pure maple syrup over the tops and these are a yummy paleo breakfast!

    Hi can these be made into pancakes if I don’t have a waffle iron?

      Hi Tammi, I haven’t tried them as pancakes yet, but I’d probably leave out the coconut oil from the batter to make them into pancakes.
