HEALTHY GRAIN WAFFLES

'A healthy spin on a classic'

(7-8 waffles)

Base recipe:

  • 1 ½ cup nut milk
  • 1 cup millet flakes
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup almond flour or almond pulp (from the milk)
  • 4 tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened apple mousse
  • 2 tbsp melted virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tsp arrow root
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • A pinch sea salt
  • Coconut oil to cook

* Add a couple of table spoons of smashed raspberries into the waffle mix, if you would like to make the berry version.

I was not use to eating waffles as the most of them contains gluten, eggs, milk, refined sugars... That is why i thought of the idea to make some that can be friendly to the belly. I prefer millet flakes instead of oats, but they work perfectly with both, also you can substitute brown rice flour for buckwheat flour. I used apple mousse instead of eggs and arrow root as a thickener but you can also use psyllium husk. If you like, you can add some smashed raspberries or banana or even some blueberries into the waffle mix, if you want to make a fruit variation of the base recipe.

Combine all the ingredients in a big bowl or container. Mix it briefly, with a hand mixer or pour it into a blender. Grease the waffle iron with coconut oil. When it gets really hot, pour some of the mix and cook for about 5-10 minutes (depending of your equipment). 

Serve the waffles with berries, slices of fruits, yogurt, nut butter and lastly drizzle some syrup on the top... get ready to enjoy!
