Well, I got a waffle maker for Christmas..actually, it was my mom’s and I permanently borrowed it while visiting for the holidays.
I’ve been trying to think of tasty and convenient foods to have for breakfast on the way to, or at work. Well, this is not one of those breakfasts. Waffles are intended to be savored people, so these are a part of our Saturday morning ritual.
Aries, my dog, is fairly spoiled, so I generally try to find recipes that can become puppy-friendly. With all that being said, here’s the recipe:
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Dash of salt, for my measurement obsessed (1/4 teaspoon)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground flax seed ( not necessary, simply preference)
1 1/2 cup almond milk ( I’m lactose intolerant so this is pretty gentle on me, use the milk you’d prefer)
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
Be sure to mix the dry and wet separately. I recommend beating the eggs for at LEAST 2 minutes. I’m obsessed with fluffy waffles and after a few failed attempts, that’s what got it done!
When combining, avoid mixing the batter too much. It will create a kind of density that will make the waffles TOUGH and defeat the purpose of working those biceps with egg beating.
Be sure to warm your waffle maker completely.
I usually chop up half of a banana, add a dollop of Greek yogurt, agave, and whatever toppings I want for the day!
I could be much more specific with this recipe, but I think my favorite part of cooking is making the recipe your OWN! Play with it! Please feel free to share your results!
P.s. If it’s for your canine kid, avoid adding flax! He loves bananas, so I cook those inside of his! I freeze them overnight, and he gets 1/4 as a treat no more than twice a day.
THEY ARE A PERFECT SUB FOR RAW HIDE AND CHEW BONES!
Until next time!
I love you.
