breakfast at kelsey's

vegan waffles

If any of you have ever tried to find a good vegan pancake or waffle recipe, you know how difficult it can be.  We've tried all sorts of healthy combinations: flax seed, applesauce, whole wheat flour, oats, etc...And our pancakes or waffles always turned out as dense as concrete! Nothing like the light, fluffy ones you would think of.  As healthy as they were, it just wasn't worth it.  So finally, FINALLY, we found this simple, basic, {not-quite-so-healthy}, but much more delicious recipe for waffles! 

the recipe:
1 cup flour (I do any combination of white wheat flour,  spelt flour, buckwheat flour, or brown rice flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
berries, to taste, optional
chocolate chips, to taste, optional
1 cup nondairy milk (I use almond milk)
1/2 cup applesauce

1/2 cup frozen berries
sugar to taste

1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl with berries or chocolate chips, if using. Mix the wet ingredients in a different bowl. Combine and mix until just mixed up.
2. Preheat waffle iron and spray with some nonstick oil (or wipe down with some oil). That's important cause they stuck like crazy to the iron when we made them.
3. Cook according to the waffle maker's instructions.

4. For the topping, microwave the berries and sugar until warm and mushy. I like to use this topping with some coconut oil, but I also like using agave nectar as a syrup.
