CHOCOLATE BLUEBERRY OAT WAFFLES
This plant-based gluten-free waffle mix is as tasty as it is quick (except the time it takes to cook waffles, amiright?!) Delicious and customizable!
Serves: Makes 3 mini waffles. You decide if you wanna hog or share ‘em!
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup water or plant milk
1 ripe banana - riper the better
1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp ground flax
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 tbsp maple syrup (the darker the better)
1 tbsp nut butter (almond or peanut work well)
1/2 tbsp hemp
Turn your waffle iron on and let that bastard heat up while you make your mix. Grease it up if needed.
In a high speed blender combine your oats, water/milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, and banana into a blender. Crank it till it’s creamy then pour it into a small mixing bowl. Add the flax and chia and stir it around. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
While that’s happening take your frozen blueberries and microwave them for 1-2 minutes. Fresh won’t quite work. They’re ready when they’ve thawed and there’s some juice at the bottom of the bowl. Add in nut butter and maple and stir it all around.
Once your batter is ready scoop it into the waffle iron a 1/2 cup at a time. It takes about 4-5 minutes a waffle. Read a book or make some coffee or tea. Stretch. Do something.
When they’re ready top with your blueberry mix and sprinkle the hemp seeds over and SMASH THEM INTO YOUR FACE.
If you can’t eat nuts just omit the nut butter or use tahini or sunflower butter.
Swap out the blueberries for any other fruit that’ll get mushy in the microwave.
Swap out the cocoa for cinnamon or pumpkin spice or whatever flavours you want. Add peppermint extract at Christmas! Be creative!
