I love trying new recipes and this one was created by just adding as many whole ingredients that I can find to put this together. I used homemade applesauce. I am sure you can use store-bought, but I leave small chunks of apples when I make my applesauce so this is a plus in this recipe. The protein powder and seeds also add some nutritional benefits.
1 Cup homemade applesauce
1/2 Cup full coconut milk
4 Tbsp maple syrup
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 Tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup water
2 Cups white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup protein powder (optional)
1 1/2 Tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp flaxseed
1 Tbsp chia seeds
3 Tbsp hemp seeds
1 Tsp cinnamon
1 Cup Fresh Strawberries or combination of berries
1 Tbsp coconut palm sugar
1 Tsp cinnamon powder
- Start with the compote, combine the last three ingredients in a pot on low heat, stirring occasionally
- Once strawberries are soft set aside.
Now is time for the waffles.
- In a large bowl, using a whisk combine all the wet ingredients (first 7 ingredients).
- In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (following 7 ingredients)
- Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well and set aside.
- Preheat waffle maker according to waffle maker instructions.
- I have a cast iron waffle maker, so I use cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Once waffles are made, top with your berry compote and warm maple syrup (optional).
- Waffles can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months. When ready to use just place in a toaster or heated oven and enjoy!
Note: I use only organic and aluminum-free ingredients
