Buckwheat Waffles + Peanut Drizzle

Buckwheat Waffles + Peanut Drizzle

Waffles are a perfect brunch on cozy weekends and great to make in large batches for freezing! These are super quick and easy to throw together & super healthy! Oil-free, gluten-free, & refined sugar-free! You can top these with your favorite fruits and superfoods! I made a peanut sauce to drizzle on top with some buckinis for a nice crunch! You can add some chocolate chips, blueberries, or keep them plain! Recipe video at the bottom of this post!

Ingridients:

  • 2 Chia or Flax eggs (2 tbs mixed with 6 tbs water, set aside for 10 minutes)
  • 1.5 cups buckwheat flour (or any other GF flour of choice)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1.5 cups nondairy milk (I used almond)
  • 4 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbs unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup liquid sweetener (I used coconut nectar)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your waffle maker to high
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder & baking soda until will combined
  3. In a smaller bowl, combine the nondairy milk & lemon juice. Let that sit for 5 minutes to form a 'butter milk' 
  4. Add in the vanilla, applesauce, & liquid sweetener
  5. Pour the chia/flax eggs into the wet ingredient mixture. Whisk it together until well combined
  6. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients & fold together. Feel free to add chocolate chips or blueberries to the batter!
  7. Add the batter to preheated waffle iron. Cook according to waffle maker's directions. Mine took about 8 minutes to get golden brown & crispy
  8. Remove from the waffle iron & repeat until you have used all the batter
  9. Stack and top with your favorite fruit and maple syrup or peanut sauce!
