I’m in love with my waffle maker and I’ve missed it so much when I was in Germany. It’s the perfect kitchen tool for the hot summers of the south of Spain because baking here can be challenging sometimes.
Making healthy waffles is easy, inexpensive and they taste amazing, you won’t believe they’re vegan! This recipe is also low in fat, especially if you use carob powder instead of the cocoa powder. You can add your favorite toppings: jam, syrup, fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, nut butters, etc.
They’re great to start your morning enjoying a delicious, super healthy, nutritious meal. Waffles are more popular in Spain as a snack or even as a dessert than as a breakfast recipe. I usually eat them in the morning with a green juice because although I love desserts, I feel like they’re hard to digest when I have them after other solid foods.
- If you don’t have a waffle maker you can make pancakes with the batter. Read our vegan gluten-free pancakes recipe if you don’t know how to make pancakes.
- Feel free to use any other sweetener or flour, although maybe you’ll have to add more or less.
PRODUCTS I USED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE (AFFILIATE LINKS):
- 3 cups rolled oats (360 g)
- 1 cup plant milk of your choice (250 ml)
- 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 tbsp agave or maple syrup
- Preheat the waffle maker.
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Once the waffle maker is ready, you can generously coat with non-stick spray or some oil (extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil are my favorite ones). I don't do this, but it's up to you.
- Pour the batter into the waffle maker and cook according to manufacturer's instructions. My waffles were ready in 7 minutes.
- Serve with your favorite toppings. I added a sliced banana, cacao nibs and more syrup.
