Dark chocolate waffle
As you may have noticed by now, I love nothing more than playing around with ingredients, textures and flavours of the waffle kind. Still very much with my healthy cap on, I have managed to get the right balance of whole food real ingredients and classic favourites. These waffles have come out tasting like a good old fashioned brownie! Do try and you won't be disappointed.
makes 6 waffles
100g of oat flour (make your own by blending good quality oats)
25g raw cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon honey
220ml milk (or use your favourite dairy free milk)
2 tablespoons of coconut oil melted (or butter, melted and cooled)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
60g dark chocolate chips
Prep time: 15mins
Cooking time: 8-10mins
In a large mixing bowl, add the oat flour, bicarbonate soda, salt and cacao, and mix well.
In a separate mixing bowl, add the milk, eggs, honey, coconut oil and vanilla and combine well.
Make a well in the dry ingredient mix, add the wet mixture and combine until smooth.
Add the chocolate chips and mix well.
Grease the waffle maker's plates according to manufacturer's instructions and heat up.
When ready, add a paddle of batter to the plate(s) and gently close the waffle maker.
Cook for about 8-10mins or until waffles appear a little crispy.
Repeat with remaining batter.
the health boost tip
Nothing says treats as much as waffle and chocolate together! Using oat flour makes this waffle more dense and more nutritious. Using a good quality raw cacao powder offers the health benefit of no added or refined sugar and higher levels of antioxidants.
These waffles keep really well for a couple of days.
