A filling, satisfying, delicious breakfast. A treat for a cloudy day or a happy occasion
I bought myself a waffle iron at the spring-market at church this Saturday, and since then I have been experimenting.
The first I did, was to use at as a toaster. Had some bread lying around that could need a bit of crispiness.
Then it was waffles.
These ones I had yesterday for breakfast. Chocolate-waffles.
- The flour: about one third each of chickpea-, coconut- and rice-. Maybe a little more rice flour. For my 2 waffles – roughly 1 decilitre altogether.
- About half a tablespoon of psyllium seeds and chia seeds – each.
- About 1/4 teaspoon of sugar and some lemon juice – to help the 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.
- And some oil. Not too much – not too little! It mustn’t be greasy, and it mustn’t be dry. I guess… about 1 – 2 tablespoons.
- And then of course cocoa powder and a hint of salt. And the more you like cocoa the more you add. I had 2 BIG tablespoons in my waffles.
- Water! Or any other liquid of your choice. Almond milk is another suggestion.
Coconut flour takes quite a lot of liquid, and so does psyllium seeds. I used about 1,5 decilitre of water. The batter should be thick byt yet somewhat runny.
This gave me 2 waffles. A bit small… but quite enough.
And to this I had chia seeds soaked in coconut milk and some vanilla and a dash of lemon juice; some strawberries; a couple of cubes of mango; and a small banana. Couldn’t resist some extra coconut milk on top of it all.
And today I had the same – but with cinnamon instead of cocoa.
It was so delicious I could almost die!!!! And I was comfortably full for several hours!
