Waffles!

8 Oct

Autumn is here and my new obsession is waffles.  I think I have owned a waffle maker for a pretty long time now but I’ve always been terrified of using it for various reasons.  Lets just say the first time using it wasn’t very pretty.  My kitchen was covered in waffle batter and I spent close to an hour prying the stuff out of the maker.  Total and epic fail but that didn’t stop me from creating a good healthy waffle and I succeeded! Just a note these waffles are pretty dense and not like your typical waffle but here is the recipe..

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp stevia extract
  1. Heat a waffle iron to medium heat
  2. Combine egg whites and almond milk in a bowl

If you love pumpkin as much as I do you can sub the almond milk for a couple tablespoons of pureed pumpkin. Also don’t be afraid to get creative! I pile the toppings on and some of my favorites are nuts, seeds, hemp, chia seeds, fruit, coconut butter, almond butter, cranberries..the list goes on. If there’s one meal that should never be boring its breakfast.
