It’s a rare occurrence in our household to make a “big” breakfast. Our breakfast usually consist of something quick and easy since both of us are out the door before 7 am. Weekends or special occasions, like my husband’s 25th birthday, called for more than the norm. This recipe is great because it makes two perfectly fluffy waffles. I have to admit, they are not very sweet, but I prefer it that way since it gives the toppings the spot light for flavor. Below I’ve included the orange glaze I made to compliment these little beauties. Feel free to add your own toppings, fresh fruit, almond butter, coconut whip cream, you name it! Enjoy:)
1 cup almond meal
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sweetener of choice (I recommend maple syrup or honey)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat waffle iron.
2. Place the dry ingredients, the first four ingredients listed, into a bowl and whisk until combined.
3. In a separate bowl, add the eggs, sweetener, and vanilla extract and whisk until well combined.
4. Add the liquid mixture to the dry and mix with a wooden spoon until all incorporated (be sure not to over mix).
5. Grease your waffle iron with coconut oil or other oil spray you desire. Depending on your waffle iron, add about half of the batter and cook until done.
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon almond milk
2 teaspoons confectioners sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk together in a small bowl. Glaze makes enough for both waffles.
