Healthy Vegan Waffles

Eat Healthy & Thrive waffles

Today was waffle Saturday in my house!
I adapted these from the “Zeb’s Waffles” recipeĀ in My Beef with Meat, by Rip Esselstyn.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup flax seed meal (ground flax seeds)
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup flaked, unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 medium banana, smashed
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups almond milk
Instructions:
Preheat your waffle iron.
Mix the dry ingredients (except coconut) in a food processor and mix until a flour like consistency.
Add to the coconut and wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add more Almond milk at this time if the mix seems too thick. The longer this mix sits, the thicker it get. Cooking times vary depending on your waffle iron – I cooked mine for 4 minutes.
Top with your favorite fresh fruit.
Here’s a yummy topping idea:
Heat up a cup of frozen berries and add 1 TBSP of maple syrup. Delicious!
*The are not light fluffy waffles – they are dense, hearty waffles.
