Plant Powered Waffles for the Kids..

I have made these so many times with so many variations and they are always crispy on the outside and moist within. They have Coconut Oil in them and do taste of coconut but even the kids I have served them too that usually hate coconut anything woofed them down without blinking.


1 & 1/2 Cups / 360ml of Almond Milk
1 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar

1/4 cup of Coconut Oil
1 & 1/2 tsp of Organic Vanilla Extract
2 tsp of Maple Syrup (you can use agave nectar if you prefer)

1 & 1/2 cups / 240g of Gluten Free Flour
1 & 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
1/4 tsp of salt
1/2 cup / 45g of Steel Cut Oats
1 tbsp of Flaxseed Meal
2 tbsp / 25g of Coconut Sugar (you can use raw sugar)


Add the Almond milk and Apple Cider Vinegar together and leave them to sit.
In a small bowl add the Coconut Oil, Vanilla, Maple Syrup and whisk then leave to sit also.
In a big bowl add your Gluten Free Flour, Oats, Flaxseed, Salt and Baking Powder and stir them all until combined
Add both sets of wet ingredients to the big bowl of dry and mix until all incorporated.
If the batter is a little thick add a drop more almond milk until it seems fluid enough.
Turn on your waffle iron and cook as per normal


You can add Chocolate Chips, Shredded Coconut, Cocoa Powder, Nuts or Chopped Fruit.
If you do you will need to add more milk for sure as it will soak up some moisture, especially the cocoa powder. 


We stick to Nut Butters, Fruit, Maple Syrup or Apple Sauce with Cinnamon but you can go savoury if you want as they are not super sweet.. I also make a massive fruit salad and just break up one waffle for my serving.

My little waffle iron is from here and is perfect for the kids to use (with you around) but there are loads out there to choose from. I adapted this from Minimalist Bakers recipe as my kids don't like things chocolate flavoured and prefer to add my home made Tahini Chocolate Spread and they find Rolled Oats a little too chunky so Steel Cut get no complaints
