Nothing says weekend to me these days like some waffles with the family. You know, windows open, coffee brewing, Mickey Mouse Club playing and that big plate of waffles calling your name. I actually just recently broke down and finally got us a waffle maker. I'm not one for having a ton of kitchen gadgets and I figured a waffle maker was kind of like an ice cream maker. You want it when you want it, but it basically sits there in the back of the cabinet until you realize, "oh my gossssh- I totally forgot about this thing!"
Boy was I wrong...
waffle maker since Easter and we've used it almost every weekend! My go to mix has been the Kodiak cake mix. I use the oat flour kind, which is packed with protein and super tasty.
Cinnamon Waffles (Vegan and Gluten Free)
1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
1 3/4 cups gluten free all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
pinch sea salt
3 shakes of cinnamon
Combine almond milk and apple cider vinegar together in a small bowl and set aside for about 1-2 minutes.
Mix together dry ingredients in a separate large mixing bowl.
Add in the almond milk/apple cider mix as well as the other wet ingredients.
Whisk together well.
Turn on waffle maker (I like to turn mine to a 4).
Spray waffle iron before each pancake with spray oil (I used spray coconut oil).
Scoop out mixture according to the size of your waffle maker. (Mine is a smaller one, so I used about 3/4 c. of mix each time).
Once finished, top with your favorite toppings - bananas, strawberries, coconut shavings, etc). We kept ours simple with some Earth Balance butter and maple syrup.
