“We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.” Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation.
Leslie is never wrong. Waffles are seriously important.
Even more so now that I can introduce you to my unbelievably delicious, but incredibly nutritious waffles. These waffles are packed full of goodness, but you wouldn’t know it from eating them.
I love waffles, but have been resisting the urge to buy a waffle iron. My kitchen cupboards grown under the weight of muffin tins, cake pans, mixing bowls and spatulas. Actually mainly spatulas. All hail the spatula. I’m like the crazy cat lady but with spatulas….which is so much better?? Hmmm.
Anyway, my waffle quest was not to be thwarted and I stumbled across this amazing creation. A silicon waffle mould. Genius.
So with my newly acquired waffle mould, I turned my favourite buckwheat pancake batter into waffles and so entered a state of waffle induced happiness. It’s a waffly good place to be. Come join.
- 120g buckwheat flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 4 tablespoon coconut sugar
- 180ml coconut or almond milk
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg, beaten
- pinch of salt
- Coyo coconut yoghurt
- 1 passionfruit
- handful of sliced strawberries
- 1 banana, sliced
- drizzle of maple syrup
- Simply combine all of the dry ingredients.
- Then add in the beaten egg, melted coconut oil and the milk. Give it a good stir. It should be a relatively thick pancake batter.
- Now pop into the waffle mould. If you are using the one I have then you pop the filled mould into a hot oven at 220C. Cook for 8 minutes. Take the tray out of the oven , de mould the waffles onto an oven tray and cook with the pattern side up for a further 4-5 minutes until golden.
- Or if you are a fancy pants, you can just pop the batter into a hot waffle iron and cook for about 3 minutes until they are golden and gorgeous - Either way, you are just a few minutes away from waffle heaven.
Don’t panic if you don’t have the means to make waffles, you can just make these as pancakes and they are amazing! Simples.
These are perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast, or I also love them for pudding. Or afternoon tea. In fact any excuse I have to eat these waffles, I leap at.
