Light and fluffy Coconut Cream Waffles with a homemade Pineapple Syrup take traditional waffles to a whole new level!

One Coconut Cream Waffle with Pineapple Syrup and whipped cream.

During a busy week I usually rely on eggs and toast for a quick and hearty breakfast. It’s what I make for my kids most often. But come Saturday mornings I am ALL about the waffles, pancakes, and french toast! Anything dripping in syrup, with lots of fruit loaded on top, has my vote.

These German Pancakes are amazing, and I could eat these 5-minute Whole Wheat Pancakes every single day.

With Mother’s Day coming up I decided to transform my favorite waffle recipe into these delicious Coconut Cream Waffles with Pineapple Coconut Syrup. It’s fun to create my dream Mother’s Day breakfast….even if I may end up making it for myself next week 😉  .

WOWZA are these waffles good. Don’t worry about them being thick and dense because they’re definitely NOT! The key is to beat the egg whites separately and then fold them into the batter. It makes them extra light and fluffy.
