I have a new favourite recipe!! A really simple one. But let me start from the beginning.
We have been considering for a while to buy a waffle maker because of this video of La Dimensión Vegana. Oat flakes, agave syrup and water, as easy as that. So simple and tasty! (Thanks Javi, you are our inspiration!!)
But my colleagues’ were faster and gave me a waffle machine as a present for my birthday. One of the best presents I have ever had!!! Since then, we’ve been experimenting almost every day. You cannot go wrong with any mix of the above three, but I found the below recipe the most tasty.
VEGAN OAT WAFFLES
Ingredients (for 10-12 waffles):
- 5 cups of (gluten-free) oat flakes
- 2 cups of warm water
- 1 cup of vegan milk
- 5-6 tbsp of agave syrup
- 4 tbsp of oil
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp of chia (optional)
- 1/2 tsp of baking soda
Preparation time: 5 minutes + baking
Secret tip: Add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.
Mix all ingredients in a mixer. Bake the dough. With our waffle maker we use about 2 tbsp of dough for a waffle and it takes ca. 5 minutes to get crispy from the outside and soft from the inside.
These waffles have become part of our weekly routine. We also experimented with adding nuts or fruits, that also works perfectly.
Please note, the amount of liquids needed varies, depending on the oat flakes. The dough should be approximately as thick as a muffin dough. But don’t worry, it’s really hard to mess up this recipe.
The best thing is that you can eat these waffles free of guilt!! All ingredients are healthy – and the topping depends on you, really. Some of my (not so healthy but spectacular) creations:
