Vanilla Cake Batter Waffles with Fig-Maple Syrup

Vanilla Cake BatterHow much do I love Nikki’s Coconut Butter?! LOTS! This is my second recipe using their product. My first one was the Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie Cookies!
Here’s a tip: I used to fill my waffle maker all the way to the edges to make the “pefect” waffle. ¬†I now like the rustic feel of just pouring my batter in the center…I love the rough edges that it creates.
