Hello from Lilo, Ginger and I!
These two fur babies were following me and the plate of waffles from the kitchen to the garden today! It was a little bit difficult to photograph these waffles when these two are jumping around and about the plate. Well at least I managed to get a few snaps!
This recipe is:
HEALTHY, GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, SUGAR FREE, SWEETENED WITH MAPLE OR BROWN RICE SYRUP
Sharing with our pups: While this recipe does contain a little added sweetness from maple, you can decide to leave out the maple and share these crisp and chewy waffles with your little fur babies! We also use coconut oil in this recipe and it benefits both you and your pup. Coconut oil contains MCTs and the lauric acids and has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties.
Other ingredients used in our delicious waffles also provide great benefits like:
Oat flour: aids digestion, skin, hormonal balance, fiber intake, etc..
Cinnamon: just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day will help to regulate blood sugar and rise insulin resistance. Boast ability to use insulin to inprove blood glucose levels.
Coconut oil: contains MCTs AND the lauric acid in coconut oil has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties. Capric and caprylic acid have similar properties and are best known for their anti-fungal effects.
Make ahead: These waffles are great for freezing! So you can have delicious and healthy waffles ready to go anytime you want! All you have to do is pop them into the toaster long enough for them to warm up 🙂 They can keep up to 1 month in the fridge if they are stored in an airtight container. *Do not microwave these waffles. They would becomes soft and mushy 🙁 really quite unpleasant
- 1½ cups oat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- ¾ cups coconut/ soy milk or water
- ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoon maple/ brown rice syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a large mixing bowl or food processor, mix oat flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
- Add the rest of the ingredients until well combined and no lumps are left.
- Let the batter rest for 10 mins so the oat flour has time to soak up some of the moisture. Plug in your waffle iron to preheat now.
- Once 10 minutes is up, pour batter onto the heated waffle iron, enough to cover the center and most of the central surface area, and close the lid.
- Once the waffle is deeply golden and crisp, transfer it to a cooling rack or baking sheet.
- Don't stack your waffles on top of each other, or they'll lose crispness.
- If desired, keep your waffles warm by placing them in a 200 degree oven until you're ready to serve.
- Repeat with remaining batter. Serve waffles with maple syrup and nut butter, or any other toppings that sound good
- Homemade Oat flour*: Place 135g of oats in a food processor and blend till oats resemble fine sand.
