Fluffy Coconut Waffles

What you need: 

2 cups oat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 banana
1 cup coconut milk (I used lite)
3/4 cup nondairy milk (I used rice)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (can use coconut, if you have it)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/3-1/2 cup shredded coconut

What you do: 

1. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (except coconut). In a separate bowl, mash banana very well and add remaining wet ingredients to it. Add wet to dry and stir until just mixed. Fold in the coconut.
2. Let sit for at least 10 minutes, or it will be too runny! I often put mine in the fridge overnight. The consistency of the batter may change depending on the size of your banana, so add a little flour if it seems too loose or add more milk if it seems too stiff.
3. Pour batter into waffle maker and follow manufacturer's instructions.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

i actually asked around and it is spelled kokoy.. it is the local kweol (creole) name for them here, and i know the name for them is different on different islands, and is even different in different parts of this island.. so i dunno if it will be online anywhere.. but if you ever see sort of fat short bananas with thin skins, very white flesh, and a hint of green apple, those are kokoy :)

These came out perfectly! No sticking and nice and fluffy. Definitely will make again.

Are you sure this is spelled correctly? I looked up "cocoi" but the only thing that came up is a species of heron. I'm pretty sure heron waffles aren't vegan  :-D

Anyway, the idea of adding pineapple extract sounds fab! Pina Colada waffles!

these came out perfect!.. i have made some other waffle recipes in the past that i had issues with (sticking to the waffle maker, not sweet enough, etc..) but these one are perfect.. they cooked really fast and came out of the maker without sticking at all..

i actually made a double recipe and it made exactly 9 waffles.. i'd say i used between 1/2 - 2/3 cup batter for each waffle..

some things i changed were that i added about 2 tablespoons poppy seeds and flax seed, used half oat flour/half multigrain flour, used mixed essence instead of vanilla (mixed is vanilla, almond and pineapple extract), used agave instead of sugar and i used 5 apple bananas (aka cocoi in dominica) which are about 4" long and have a faint hint of green apple to them, instead of 2 normal sized bananas..

i am freezing them to have as a quick breakfast in the morning.. thanks for such a good waffle recipe! I will for sure make these a zillion more times

:) i <3 coconut

These are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!  The batter even makes good pancakes!  I think we may use them as a base for a dessert!!!

I have made these in bar form also...I just don't grind all the oatmeal up!  I also add less liquid, just enough to hold it together.  You'll have to post the recipe if you use it for a dessert, cause I loooooove coconut  :>

The lime zest does sound like a good addition to the coconut, I have a recipe for white chocolate macadamia cookies with coconut & lime juice-- yum!

These are super yummy! I used all coconut milk, 1/3 cup shredded coconut and coconut oil instead of canola. I accidentally put in to much sugar (xylitol) and almond extract instead of vanilla. I will be making these again, next time with less sweetener and with vanilla extract. I think that lime zest would be an interesting addition that I may try out.
I also made raspberry syrup (raspberries, maple syrup, water & tapioca starch) for them and it complimented the flavour nicely.

Is the banana flavour obvious in these waffles?

I found the banana  wasn't overpowering at all. They taste very coconut-y!

The lime sounds good. Since the sugar isn't for bulk, you may find stevia works well.

No, it's not very pronounced at all and it goes well with the tropical flavor of the coconut.  If you just don't like banana, you can use 1/2 cup of applesauce instead (just make sure to cut down on other wet ingredients a tad)

Do you think I could use egg replacer instead? The recipe for Nutty Orange Wafflewiches appears to be of very similar compositon to this recipe; it uses egg replacer & it is really good (coconut flavour also)

Yeah, I think replacer for two eggs would do it?  I've used ener-g in waffle recipes before, just not this one.  I usually make these in the morning before work so I'm rushing...and a banana is quick!
