Its no secret that I absolutely adore breakfast food. I could eat breakfast food all day and, in fact, I often do. I go through stages, though. Sometimes I crave the savoury type of breakfast options, such as omlettes or scrambled eggs. Most times, though, I want something sweet.
My sweet tooth is , quite honestly, a force to be reckoned with and I have learnt that its better to embrace it than to fight it.
The reason that I love these waffles so much is because they don’t call for protein powder. All of the ingredients are super simple and should be things that you would find in your kitchen cupboard on a regular basis.
I actually came up with the recipe for these waffles by mistake. I was in a rush and wanted to wake Sheldon up with breakfast in bed. I had been given some peanut butter to try and the idea of some peanut butter flavoured waffles really appealed to me. Since I was making these for Sheldon, I thought I would add some protein powder to the batter but I completely forgot. In the end they turned out better than I ever expected, and enough waffles were made to feed my ‘always hungry’ husband and myself. I don’t think you will be disappointed with these.
Peanut butter waffles
- 1 cup oat flour (oats ground up into a flour)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- A pinch of himilayan salt
- ¼ cup apple babyfood
- ¼ cup sugar and salt free peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 2 TBS honey
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp unfiltered apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
Add the oat flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt to a bowl, stir together.
To a food processor or blender add the purity, peanut butter, egg, honey, almond milk, vinegar and vanilla essence. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and fold together.
Allow the mixture to sit in the refrigerator for at least half an hour (this will help the mixture thicken and help to produce crispy and fluffy waffles)
After 30 minutes heat up a waffle iron.
Lightly spray the heated waffle iron with some cooking spray.
Spoon the waffle mixture into the waffle iron and close the machine. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
Top your waffles with some sliced banana, melted peanut butter, honey, sugar free syrup or fresh berries
This mixture made 20 medium sized waffles. You can make the waffles in advance and freeze them for up to 3 months.
This means that these waffles can become a quick and easy breakfast on the go.
