You can use a waffle maker for these Chocolate Coconut Waffles if you have one.

We like to add a boost of coconut flavour in these Chocolate Coconut Waffles by adding some almond extract.

Our sweetener of choice is Sukrin 1 which is a natural, granulated sweetener (just like sugar) that has none of that horrible, artificial taste.

That being said, you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality, granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket including Canderel Sugarly and Natvia.

If you’re using powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases, you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners can weigh less.

We just used one of these waffle moulds from Amazon.

You can pick the extract up in most supermarkets, but also online at Amazon!

You can grab Sukrin 1 sweetener over on Amazon.

You can pick up Natvia on Amazon as an alternative sweetener.

Can you keep mixture in fridge prior to cooking

    Hi Cat
    You could probably keep it overnight to save some time in the morning. Make sure to give it a good stir before you use it though

Please could you tell me if it is possible to batch cook these and then freeze them? If so how long will they keep in the freezer? If they can’t be kept in the freezer, how long would they keep in the fridge.

Many thanks 🙂

    Hi Debbie
    I don’t see why they wouldn’t freeze, although we’ve not tried. We’ve kept them for about 3 days without any problems
