(Makes approx. 4 large waffles)
✘ 2 cups all purpose flour (use a gluten free all purpose blend to make this recipe GF)
✘ 1/4 cup tapioca flour (or corn/potato starch)
✘ 2 tsp baking powder
✘ 1/2 tsp cinnamon
✘ 2 tsp ground flax/chia seed
✘ 1 tsp salt
✘ 2 scoops of your favourite plant-based protein (if not making protein waffles leave this out)
✘ 2 cups plant-based milk of your choice
✘ 1/4 cup mashed banana (sub for apple sauce or melted coconut oil if not making banana flavoured waffles)
✘ 1 tsp vanilla extract
✘ 1 tbsp lemon juice
✘ sliced banana or fresh fruit
✘ crushed walnuts
✘ hemp seeds
✘ maple syrup
In a medium sized mixing bowl whisk together all wet ingredients including the mashed banana/apple sauce. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients and mixed until well combined. Add the wet into the dry and fold gently. Set aside while you preheat your waffle maker.
If needed, coat your waffle iron with cooking spray/oil before pouring the batter. Follow your waffle iron’s instructions and cook until waffles are golden brown.
Top with fresh fruit, nuts/seeds, and a drizzle of maple syrup!
