Sorry I haven’t blogged in awhile, I just got done visiting my grandparents. It was an amazing trip. I’ve picked a few highlights to share with all of you!
This was the perfect day. My grandpa drove my Mom and I to the Sandia mountains. I packed my Grandpa a ham & swiss sandwich, which he loved of course. Afterwards we went to a small thrift store, where I found some old cookbooks and random treasures.
Visiting a french pastry shop. Yum.
I found this place in Santa Fe. It was absolutely fantastic! I think the best part of it were the amazing crepes. Blueberry, raspberry, and nutella too. Highly recommended.
Eating authentic Mexican street food
The best part of the southwest is the amazing Mexican food. I love spicy food, so of course I didn’t mind eating it everynight. Mmmm Sopapillas, tamales, and green chile! My grandma gave me some of her recipes. Look for them soon!
riding the train to Santa Fe
This might have been my favorite day. We took the train to Santa Fe and shopped in the plaza and in old town. It was full of unique street vendors selling food, jewelry, and art. It’s easy to fall in love with the culture.
The zoo with my Grandparents
Look at these cuties! We got to spend the day at the zoo. My grandpa even found a wild snake wandering around. He’s such a sly guy. I’ll miss them.
I wish vacations didn’t end… What would you do if they didn’t?
I’d eat waffles every morning. Maybe even for dinner.
and I’d probably pick these… Gluten Free Banana Coconut Waffles.
They smell like banana bread when toasted! Now that’s love.
I like to top mine with toasted coconut and bananas. Plus a dollop of coconut whip cream.
I told you I was on a breakfast binge.

Gluten Free and grain free coconut flour waffles with banana! Delicious, easy to make and a great paleo breakfast option.

In a small bowl, mix together the coconut flour, salt, and baking soda.

Can u make pancakes instead of waffles. I don’t have a waffle maker but these sound amazing!
Hi Monique! I love your brand, blog, posts, recipes! I rely on them often to make healthy desserts and get other ideas from your genius! Was hoping to find a vegan whip cream option (recipe) from you. You posted about it in the hummingbird cup cakes,….and it led here…Anyways, if not avail, no worries, I will google search elsewhere.
Congrats on being a new mom! Enjoy to the fullest and thank you so much for all the content you put out! It is sooooo greatly appreciated on this end!! My 3 boys (hubby included) love and appreciate it also!! xoxo
Hi Paula! I’m so glad you’re loving the recipe here. I have a coconut-based, fluffy frosting recipe here that you could likely make without the chocolate 🙂 And thank you so much!!
Hi! Do you have a recipe for the coconut whip cream? Or do you buy this pre-made? Thanks!
I use pre-made! 🙂
