Whenever I have a little extra time in the morning and feel a bit indulgent, I usually make more involved breakfast recipes. This past Monday was no different, and I decided to make some yummy waffles (for the first time!) for my omnivorous boyfriend and I. I used a recipe from food.com for my base, while changing it up a little bit.
Ingredients (serves 3, or 2 piggies like me! ;])
2 Cups of Water
1 Very Ripe Banana, chopped
1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
1/8 Cup of Organic Vegan Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats
2 Tbsp. Ground Flaxseed
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
–For the topping:
2 1/2 Cups Frozen Peach Slices
2 tbsp. Organic Vegan Sugar, or a little less Agave Syrup
1 tsp. Arrowroot, or Cornstarch
Put all ingredients into blender, blend until smooth and add a little more water if needed to make it the right consistency (you want it a little thicker than pancake batter). Pour into preheated waffle iron and make sure it covers then grid and outer edge. Cook until the steam stops or for my belgian waffle make it was about 8-12 minutes. Make sure the outside is crispy without being burnt.
While the waffles are cooking mix up the frozen peaches, sugar, and arrowroot and simmer over low-medium heat until it thickens up a bit (roughly 10 minutes). Then pour over cooked waffles and serve!
