Maple Flavored Waffles

Maple Flavored Waffles

I am obsessed with waffles!! I will make a huge batch on Saturday morning just so that I can eat the rest of them throughout the week. My family isn’t quite as obsessed as I am, which is sad, but at least that leaves more for me to enjoy, right!

I found this new recipe on minimalistbaker.com and adjusted it just slightly by removing the oil and using whole wheat flour instead of her gluten free flour blend. I also included the vanilla, cinnamon and flax seed optional add-in’s.  Let me tell you, they turned out SO good! I will definitely be making these a lot. Maybe if I add the chocolate chips in them next time my kids will be more likely to eat them 🙂

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup agave or maple syrup (I used maple syrup)
  • heaping 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of sea salt

Optional Add-Ins

  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP flax seed
  • 1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped bananas or other fresh fruit

Instructions

  1. Combine almond milk and vinegar in a small mixing bowl and let set for a few minutes to curdel/activate. Then add applesauce and agave or maple syrup and whisk. Set aside.
  2. Add dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until well incorporated. Add additional add-in’s if desired and mix well.
  4. Let set for 5-10 minutes while your waffle iron preheats.
  5. Once the waffle iron is ready, coat waffle iron with non-stick spray and pour about 1/2 cup of batter on the iron.
  6. Cook to desired crispness and serve immediately (or store in the fridge and eat them cold throughout the week like me!)
  7. Top with your favorite peanut butter, fruit, maple syrup etc. Will keep in the freezer for up to a couple of months
