Apart from pancakes, who else agrees that waffles also makes a good weekend brunch? Scratch that, make it an 'everyday brunch' food cause it's so easy to make and doesn't take up much of your time! Simply mix all the ingredients in a huge bowl and you're set... Oh, and you'd also need a good waffle maker (obviously)And what's even better about this recipe? It's vegan! Yup, egg free, dairy free and nut-free, which means everyone gets to enjoy this! I took awhile to adjust this recipe because I experimented it with 2 different flours.
I used gluten free flour firstly, and realised that the end product came out a little... hard? It was edible and still tasty, of course, but a little tiring to cut. Then, I experimented it with basic organic unbleached white flour and it was much better :) Perhaps I was missing out something important while using the gluten free mix, so if you know what went wrong, please let me know!
Ingredients: 1 Cup flour (I used organic unbleached white flour) 1/2 Cup room temperature water (slightly more if needed) 1 Tbs xylitol (it's a natural sweetener) Dairy free chocolate chips (as much as you like!) Cinnamon (optional)
1. Combine flour and water together
2. Stir in Sugar
3. Add in chocolate chips
This is when you observe your batter - is it runny or thick? It should be of a cake-like batter. Not too runny nor thick. Best for fluffy waffles :)
4. Spray a little non-stick oil to your waffle maker (to prevent sticking) and pour 2Tbs of the batter in.
*Note: Different waffle maker works with different amount for one serving. Pour in whichever is suitable for your waffle maker.
Top it with your favourite toppings once it's cooled. I topped mine with strawberries, dried cranberries and organic molasses. Love the end result and I hope you do too! Let me know if you make it and tagged me in your creations! :)
And, Selamat Hari Raya to all my muslim friends!
