We received a waffle maker from my parents recently (I think they want us to make them waffles lol!) and we’ve managed to use it a few times already.This recipe is delicious for the gluten-phobes and -philes out there!
– 1/2 cup oat flour (I grind rolled oats in a coffee grinder)
– 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour (I like Bob’s Red Mill)
– 1 tsp chia seeds in 2 tsp water (chia seed egg)
– 1/4 tsp aluminum-free baking soda
– 1 pinch sea salt
– 1/4 tsp cinnamon
– 1 cup oat milk (or other non-dairy milk)
– 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
– 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
– 2 tsp liquid sweetener (maple syrup, coconut nectar etc.)
– 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
In a small bowl, mix together the chia seeds (both ground and unground work well) and water and let it sit for 5 minutes. Start heating up your waffle iron at this point as well. While that’s happening, pour all your dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Then, add in all your wet ingredients and mix again. The batter should be a cake-like consistency – not too thick and not too thin; you can add in some water or oat milk if need be. Add in your chocolate chips (you can also add wild blueberries if you’d like) and pour the batter into the waffle iron so its whole surface is covered. I always cook 2-3 minutes beyond the light going off since I like crispy waffles. Top however you’d like with more chocolate chips or syrup or have it plain like me instead!
Makes 4 waffles.
