These waffles are delicious and so tasty, they are sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Made with Macadamia Butter, powdered dates and vanilla extract and topped with Chocolate Hazelnut spread, strawberries, bananas, chopped Walnuts & chopped Pistachios... what more could you want?
1 3/4 cups unsweetened almond milk, room temperature
(can use any unsweetened nut milk)
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups gluten free flour
(can also use regular flour)
2 tablespoons powdered dates
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Macadamia Butter
Hazelnut Chocolate Spread, drizzle
1/4 cup Raw Walnuts, chopped or finely chopped (your preference)
1/4 cup Raw Pistachios, chopped or finely chopped (your preference)
Handful of strawberries, sliced
1 banana, chopped
Mix the almond milk, vanilla extract and apple cider vinegar together in a small bowl/ measuring cup. Set aside for about 5 minutes, this will make the vegan buttermilk!
In a large bowl, sift the flour and baking powder, add in the salt.
Add the powdered dates, Macadamia Butter, and buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients, using a spatula. Gently mix the batter until combined. The batter should be thick and scoop-able.
Turn on and preheat your waffle maker according to which level that you want. We set ours to medium/ medium high to get them crispy and golden in colour.
Using a 1/2 measuring cup, scoop out some batter and pour into the middle of the greased waffle maker, you don't need to push it into the edges. Close and let it cook until the steam has completely stopped from the waffle maker.
Meanwhile, while the waffles are cooking, prep all the topping ingredients. Set aside.
Remove the waffle and place on a baking sheet in your oven or toaster oven at 200 degrees F to keep them warm and crisp, until finished with the entire batter. Continue with the rest of the batter.
Serve immediately with the toppings and enjoy!
For reference, we used a circlar waffle maker, it made four sections per one waffle.
You can substitute powered dates for brown sugar or cane sugar.
Sifting the flour and baking powder helps make the waffles fluffy and takes any clumps out.
