Hello & happy National Waffle Day! I’m not totally into these foodie holidays…it seems like there are 4 or 5 of them every day…and they’re usually over before I’ve realized they have begun. However, I did not miss the memo today…because waffles are definitely worth celebrating! 😉

However these aren’t waffles {gasp!}…they are Waffle Maker Peanut Butter Cookies! Yes you heard me, they might look like waffles but they’re really a healthy, delicious peanut-buttery treat in disguise!

They’re SO healthy, in fact, that I might have served these cookies to my kids for breakfast once or twice…maybe! 😉 I seriously couldn’t get enough of them! And Gabe, who prefers pancakes over waffles 10 times out of 10, thoroughly enjoyed eating these Waffle Maker Peanut Butter Cookies {probably because he knew they were cookies and not waffles}! 😉

True story: If you ever come with me to Sprouts on double ad Wednesday {seriously, anyone want to come keep track of my kids while I grocery shop in peace?!} then you’ll find a lot of Sprouts brand products in my cart! The quality, variety and price {ca$h money} can’t be beat! In fact, most of the Sprouts Brand products are certified organic, which makes me love them even more! 

I recently stocked up on Sprouts Brand Organic Vanilla Extract {pictured below} and it was FOUR TIMES less expensive per ounce than where I usually buy it! Four. Times. So if you live near a Sprouts give it a whirl, but be sure to go on Wednesdays….because two ads are better than one {because it means twice the deals}.

Waffle Maker Peanut Butter Cookies: Method 

Here are a couple notes about making these Waffle Maker Peanut Butter Cookies!

Set your waffle maker to low heat. I set mine {which I love by the way} between 1 and 2. If you overcook these waffle cookies they will get crumbly and will not be fun to remove from the maker!

Let the batter sit. Don’t turn on the waffle maker until you’ve mixed up the batter. Letting it sit while your waffle maker heats up will ensure that the coconut flour soaks up the liquid causing the batter to thicken…which is exactly what needs to happen to make these tasty treats!

Only use 2 TBS of batter per cookie. This is the most important piece of method advice I can give you! True story: when I was testing out recipes for this post I had many, many failures! So I put out a call for help on my Instagram Stories {<- pop in and say Hi}! and my friend Beth from Budget Bytes {<- Check her out} sent me a recipe that gave this piece of advice. I had be using a 1/4 of a cup of batter for each cookie…NO. BUENO! The 2 TBS trick along with some ingredient tweaks resulted in Waffle Maker Peanut Butter Cookie perfection!

Waffle Maker Peanut Butter Cookies: Substitutions

I went through many trials and errors to get this recipe perfect. I highly recommend following it exactly. But here are a few possible substitutions!

Peanut Butter. Any nut or seed butter should work well. I used a natural variety with no additives, so be sure to choose the same quality of product for your waffle cookies!

Coconut oil. The only acceptable substitution for coconut oil is melted butter!

Honey/Maple Syrup. These are the two sweeteners I had great success with, and did not try any others. I’m guessing that any liquid sweetener would work well in equal amounts, but I cannot vouch for any others!

There is NO substitute for coconut flour! Please do NOT try to use a different kind of flour in this recipe. Coconut flour is very affordable {especially at Sprouts} and is a wonderful flour to have on hand for all your gluten-free baking needs {I mean really, you can make these or this or these with it}!
