Making healthier choices everyday is a step towards better well being. But don’t be misled, balance is so important, like everything in life. Therefore, don’t be too hard on yourself in the first place and enjoy the journey! Here I had made myself a healthier version of what I love; waffles. It can be difficult understanding or being open about if it will still taste great when made healthy. However, I can assure you, it’s no problem at all and with those toppings it’s nothing to miss.
These waffles are gluten-free, dairyfree, plant based, vegan and refined sugar free! They also have a hidden vegetable in it… Carrot!
• 5 dl oats
• 2,5 dl buckwheat flour
• 1 banana
• 8 dl plantbased milk (I used oat milk)
• 1/4 tsp cardamom
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• Pinch of salt
• 2 tbsp coconut sugar
• 1 shredded carrot
1. First add all ingredients except the shredded carrot in a blender. When the batter is smooth, then you can stir in the carrot with a spoon.
2. Heat up your waffle maker and add some coconut oil to it so that the batter doesn’t stick.
3. Have your favorite toppings with it! I love both savory and sweet, the options are so many! On the picture I had homemade hazelnut and chocolate spread with slices of strawberries and coconut yoghurt on top. For the savory part, I did homemade beetroot hummus with slices of avocado, olives, pesto, afalfa sprouts and chili flakes. The combinations are so so good!
Enjoy a nutritious waffle and congratulations on taking one step further on your journey towards healthier food choices.
