I know what you might be thinking... Waffles again, Kristy?
And yep, once again I'm sharing another vegan waffle recipe... but there's good reason for it.
You see, things have been CRAAAAAAAZY busy in Southern In Law land which leaves little time for baking and recipe developing - and when I haven't been working or running around like a crazy person, I've been making waffles.
Why? Because they're delicious - and also so I can say to Jesse (in my best Donkey voice);
"And in the morning, I'm making WAFFLES"
Just like my original Best Vegan Waffles Recipe for One this recipe also makes just a single serving of waffles that is gluten free, vegan, sugar free AND seriously ridiculously delicious. So I think you may forgive me for sharing it.
Best of all, they're made for peanut butter.
In fact, Did you know that waffles were originally made to hold peanut butter? Nope! I bet you didn't....
Because I totally made that up.
Well I sort of made that up, because this recipe was created to hold peanut butter. If you ask me, there is no greater combination than chocolate and peanut butter - so why not combine the two and call it breakfast?!
So let me share the recipe with you! >>
Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Waffle Recipe for One
serves one, easily multiplied (could serve 3 if doubled)
makes ~6 waffle sticks or 2 full sized waffles
low fat, gluten free, vegan, egg free, dairy free, sugar free,
nut free, clean eating recipe
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp (50g) gluten free plain flour
1 1/2 tbsp (10g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp (30g) applesauce
1/2 cup milk of your choice
1 tsp vanilla
Optional: Sweetener to taste (I eat mine as is and top them with sweet toppings, however, I add 1-2 tsp of maple syrup for Jesse)
- Preheat your waffle iron and lightly grease with oil.
- Mix together all of your batter ingredients in a medium mixing bowl, mixing until combined (there will be a few little lumps but it's okay!).
- Spoon your waffle batter (it will be quite thick) into your waffle iron, according to manufacturers instructions (I use about 2 tbsp mix per waffle stick - you want to cover the bottom well but not overfill them).
- Cook for 4-6 minutes for waffle sticks or as per manufacturers instructions (every waffle iron is different so play around with the timings - mine needed 1 minute less than the manufacturer's instructions). Take out your waffles once they're crisp on the outside and cooked through by carefully running a knife around the edge and popping them out.
- Serve immediately with toppings of your choice or allow to cool before storing in the fridge or freezer and reheating and/or defrosting to enjoy later. These waffles will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days and can be reheated in the waffle iron or oven to crisp them up or enjoyed cold.
But tell me, what's your all time favourite thing to pair with chocolate?
And what's one recipe you keep making over and over?
If I'm not pairing chocolate with peanut butter, I'm usually pairing it with mint!
