Baking (healthy) waffles can definitely be tricky. But once you have experimented a bit it’s super easy! You can find a few waffle recipes on my blog already but I’ve all made them with a belgian waffle iron. So I decided to come up with a recipe that works best with the heart shaped waffle irons!
The waffles themselves are oilfree but I used coconut oil to grease the waffle iron. And I would recommend you to do so, too! Especially if you’re trying your waffle iron for the first time and don’t know if they will stick or not! Some new waffle irons work perfectly without any oil tho! Just be careful in the beginning because otherwise you’ll end up with a mess!
I added a nutbutter mix to my waffles but you can use any nut- or seedbutter you like! (hazelnut-, peanut-, almond, cashewbutter or tahini etc.).
- 60g oats (flour)
- 60g buckwheat (flour)
- 20g tapioka or cornstarch
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 2tsp baking powder
- 20g coconut blossom sugar
- 1tbsp (10g) ground flaxseed
- 20g nutbutter
- 200ml plantmilk
- 50ml water
- Blend the oats and buckweat (and all the other dry ingredients) in a highspeed blender until you have flour.
Or buy oat- & buckwheat flour and combine all dry ingredients in a bowl if you don’t have a strong blender.
- Add the remaining liquid ingredients (plantmilk, water and nutbutter) and stir them into the flour mix.
- Your batter should not be too runny but also not super thick. Maybe you have to add a little more water after a while if the dough gets too thick.
- Preheat your waffle iron, grease it with coconut oil to make sure the waffles don’t stick to the iron!
- Bake them until they’re golden brown and crispy. The baking time depends on which waffle iron you use! Just make sure not to open the iron too early because that would rip the waffle apart.
- If you want the waffles to be crispy enjoy them straight out of the waffle iron and add your favourite toppings! I love adding fresh fruit, berries, chocolate sauce, nutbutter, vegan chocolate spread, maple syrup etc.
