- In a large mixing bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together: flour, baking powder, coconut sugar.
- Preheat the waffle iron. Make sure you grease your waffle iron just before adding the waffle batter and repeat this before baking each batch of waffles. You can either brush some coconut oil or spray some oil.

- Store the waffle batter up to 24 hour in the fridge in an airtight container and use the next day for breakfast.
- Store the cooked waffles in the fridge for up to 2 days in an airtight container. You can also freeze the waffles and defrost the day before serving.
