3 egg yolks
3 egg whites, room temperature
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 cup almond flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
bacon grease, lard or coconut oil for waffle iron
Preheat waffle iron. In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks and milk. Add almond flour and salt and combine until smooth. Add melted butter. Whisk egg whites until they form moist, stiff peaks. Fold about 1/4 of egg whites into batter. Fold batter into remaining egg whites in three parts. Add maple syrup and vanilla. Mix well.
Scoop 1/3 cup of batter onto a preheated and greased waffle iron. Do not smooth the top of the batter before closing the top of the iron. Close the lid gently. Cook until golden brown.
