You know what I really love? When you get in the kitchen with the hopes of just creating something edible and then it turns out to be absolutely amazing! These waffles are an example of that.
On Sunday mornings I generally take my time to prepare something extra good. Firstly, because I for once have the time for it, secondly because weekends should always be celebrated! However, this morning I just really wasn’t motivated and thought I would take the easy route and get the cooking over with as quickly as possible. I opened my recipe book to see what I could come up with and stumbled upon this old recipe for wholewheat waffles that I hadn’t´used in years. As it turns out, it was a hidden treasure.
These waffles are so crispy that you know they are going to be amazing from the moment you bite into them. They sugar content is almost non-existing and they are (of course) completely free of refined sugar. The wholewheat makes the waffles very filling, but without feeling too heavy.
The waffles can be served with your toppings of choice, but I really recommend Greek yogurt and berries for a complete nutrition profile, ensuring that you get carbs, fat and protein combined with several vitamins and minerals in this one meal.
I have to admit that this recipe is so old that I do not remember if I created it myself or if I may have gotten it elsewhere. My apologies is credit is not given where it belongs, but at least I see it as a positive to spread this amazing recipe with as many people as possible 😉
So here it goes…
- 2 cups wholewheat flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 cups homemade buttermilk (add 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar to 2 cups of almond milk and let set for 5 minutes)
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbsp date syrup (or substitute with your choice of liquid sweetener)
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extra
- Toppings of choice
Mix dry and wet ingredients separately in 2 mixing bowls. Add together and stir until the batter is smooth and completely free of any lumps. Heat up your waffle iron and add a minimum amount of either butter or oil to the iron to ensure that the waffles do not stick. Bake the waffles.
Serve immediately with your choice of toppings.
Happy Sunday everyone! Let me know if you enjoyed these as much as I did…
