Buckwheat Waffles (Vegan + GF)

Buckwheat Waffles (Vegan + GF)

I recently got a mini waffle maker and it is the cutest purchase I have ever made.

I was perusing along in Home Goods the other week, minding my own business, when I came across the tiniest little bubble-gum pink mini waffle maker. It makes one waffles at a time, and each one is a perfect circle. Not only was it $6.99, but it was pink and tiny.

Needless to say, I didn’t think much about the purchase. She was mine.

Yet, because it’s been so unbearably hot here, It' took me a week or two to finally take it out of the box and put it to use. I had an off day, and time to kill in the morning, so why not? I haven’t made waffles in the longest time. There was actually one point a few years ago - before I went vegan - that I would wake up extra early each morning before school and make waffles that were only made of eggs and banana; I think it was some two-ingredient recipe that had gone viral? Not sure, but I do remember months of enjoying waffles like it was nobody’s business.

This time though, the recipe is much better, I promise. No eggs involved.

The recipe for these waffles is similar to my buckwheat pancakes, but crispy and golden like only waffles can be.

Buckwheat Waffles

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup oats

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp flaxseed

1/2 ripe banana

3/4 cup almond milk

INSTRUCTIONS:

Blend all of the ingredients together in a food processor - then, allow the batter to sit while you preheat your waffle maker. Put a bit of coconut oil on your waffle maker so that the waffles are easier to take out! Cook according to the waffle maker’s instructions.

Waffles should come out looking golden and crispy!

Top with whatever you like! I put Lavva’s original vegan yogurt on top, with peanut butter, strawberries, sliced almonds, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
