Paleo Waffle Cookies (Pizzelles)

Print

We try to make birthdays a special occasion here! We always start with a traditional “birthday breakfast” of their choice. This varies depending on the family member, but typically involved using some maple syrup, butter and fruit! Since we eat paleo now, treats for the birthday gal or guy have taken us to some new creative heights as we try to recreate warm fuzzy memories. We want to keep it tummy friendly and still provide that something special kinda moment for them.

This year is no different! I’ve wanted to make waffle cones so I could recreate a “drumstick” ice cream for a couple years now. This man of mine, loves ice cream…period! All kinds! With cake, with fruit, with chocolate…yep, all kinds all sorts of ways.

Started with Otto’s cassava flour and the rest was easy. Well, OK…I finally had to get the pizzelle maker to complete the project. Create I did and it’s amazing!!! We couldn’t be happier with it and hope that you find all sorts of things to do with it! We made little bowls by placing the hot pizzelle over the bottom of a little bowl and then placed another bowl over the top. Once cooled, we painted them with chocolate. If that’s not the best bowl for some ice cream…wowser! We folded them over some bamboo skewers while they were hot and tadah…we have waffle taco shells for choco tacos! Or simply leave them flat and they are great little cookies.

Further Food Commentary:

Cassava, a starchy root native to Brazil and Thailand makes for a great gluten-free flour alternative as seen in this creative recipe. Cassava is a great source of magnesium, vitamin C, and folate, which are important nutrients for heart and digestive health,and metabolism.

    i am thrilled at the outcome of these waffle cookies! They are crisp and delicious and can”t wait to share them with family and friends for Christmas! I have been making traditional Pizzelles for over 40 years with an old iron that was my moms and stopped because of the ingredients. I’m back in the game thanks to this recipe !!
