Vegan Banana Bread Waffles
These are so yummy and filling... kid tested, mother approved!
1 3/4 cups spelt flour (or whole wheat flour, or gluten-free mix of your choice)
1-2 Tbsp sucanat (coconut sugar crystals or brown sugar)
1/2-1 cup hemp milk (or soy)
1 ripe banana
1/4 cup olive oil (or coconut)
1 tsp vanilla
a drop of almond extract (optional)
3 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp baking powder
1-2 Tbsp protein powder
Heat waffle iron on a medium setting.
Mash banana in a medium sized bowl. Add to it the sucanat, hemp milk, olive oil, vanilla, almond extract and applesauce. Mix well. Next, stir in flour and baking soda. Mix until combined. If it looks too thick, add in splashes of milk at a time until desired consistency.
Spray iron and pour 1/4- 1/3 cup of batter and cook. Serve immediately.
These waffles are on the sweeter side and delicious by themselves or with a little drizzle if maple syrup or honey! Enjoy!
