Ah! Christmas is a week away! Are you ready?  Are you struggling through the holiday crowds of people to find the perfect gifts, or are you like me and do most of your shopping online?

Christmas shopping used to stress me out.  I don’t like crowds, and I always seem to wait until mid-December when the stores are the busiest to do my shopping.  One year, I had bought a gift for a Secret-Santa gift exchange, one of those candle-warmer thingies, and a guy accidentally broke it.  He apologized profusely and said that he would just take the gift as is, but being the nice person I was, I decided to run the store I got it from to exchange it, thinking it was no big deal.  The shop I got it from wasn’t too far away from where I worked, and I could just run in, swap it out, and come back during lunch.

Now, a normal person probably wouldn’t have even bothered, since the shop I had purchased it from happened to be in the mall, and to top it off….it was Christmas Eve! I was young and naive at the time and thought that most people would have already finished their Christmas shopping, because most people were more responsible than I.

How wrong I was! I about had a panic attack in the parking lot, it was so crazy.  And it wasn’t a run-in-run-out ordeal.  So. many. people.  It took the whole hour of my lunch break, whereas on a normal day it probably wouldn’t have even taken half an hour.

I hope that dude liked my gift.

Nowadays, I am super thankful for Amazon Prime!

Anyway, I hope your shopping is less stressful and your week is merry and bright, like these waffles!

Paleo Gingerbread Waffle with syrup on plate

These Paleo Gingerbread Waffles are great! It was just the right amount of spices to taste like a Christmas-y breakfast.  I love eating gingerbread flavored foods during the holiday season.  Or really any time of the year.

I use a Belgian Waffle Iron and this recipe made me two large Belgian waffles.  I am not sure how many regular-sized waffles this would make, but if you try this is a normal waffle iron let me know! And let me know what you think of the recipe!

Recipe Notes

If you find the batter is too thick for the normal consistency that your waffle iron makes perfect waffles, start by adding 1 Tbsp of water to the batter. Add more little by little as needed, until it is the consistency needed for your waffle iron. I find that 1 Tbsp of water is perfect for my waffle iron, and 2 Tbsp is too much.
