  • 1½ cups white whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder

  • 2½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat waffle maker.
  2. After grating the zucchini, use a strainer, dishtowel, or paper towel to gently squeeze moisture out of the zucchini; set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and sugar; whisk well.
  4. In another large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, almond milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined; fold in the zucchini until well-incorporated.
