Does anyone else go to Pinterest every single time they make waffles even though you’ve made them a hundred thousand times and should have remembered at least one recipe by now? No? Just me? Cool.

I feel like because I’m posting a waffle recipe I’m contributing to the already billions of waffle recipes there are on the web, but this one is simple. Buildable.

A basic, if you will.

This waffle recipe is so basic and doesn’t follow any seasonal or superfood trends. It also allows you the creative freedom to add what you like, whether it’s a teaspoon of matcha powder, a handful of blueberries, tons of cinnamon, or a superfood like spirulina.

It follows a simple formula that most waffle/ cake recipes follow:

About 1 cup dry flour
3/4 cup of a liquid (or in this case, a liquid and a thicker yoghurt)
Baking powder
1 egg or vegan equivalent

I wanted to beef up the nutrition profile of waffles by adding more protein and fibre, two macro nutrients that help satiate you for hours. Typically most of the protein would come from egg, but adding Greek yoghurt boosts the protein content about 5 g. Ground fibres such as ground flax or chia add 3 - 5 g of fibre.

So without further ado, here it is:

Go-To Waffles For 2


Preparation time: 10 minutes

Makes: 3-4 circular waffles (this will depend on your waffle maker)

Ingredients:

1 egg (or flax egg)
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1/4 cup Greek yoghurt (or a non-dairy yoghurt)
1 tbsp fibre powder like this one, ground flax or ground chia seeds
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup oat flour
1/2 tbsp baking powder

Method:

  1. | Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.

  2. | Use coconut oil or ghee to grease a waffle maker and allow it to heat up.

  3. | Scoop about 1/4 cup batter for each waffle

My toppings:

1 small apple chopped and sauteed in a bit of coconut oil and cinnamon for five minutes
5 chopped Brazil nuts
More Greek yoghurt

Enjoy! x
