Not that conventional, but they work! The waffle itself is vegan, sugar free, super healthy and really delicious. As I decided to use spelt flour, it means they are not gluten free but you could definitely sub in another flour like buckwheat. Spelt flour is way easier on the digestive system than regular flour, plus it has lower levels of gluten so unless you're gluten intolerant, give it a go! Recipe by Florence @ Swift Eats
- 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 tbsp chia seed
- 6 tbsp water
- 150g spelt flour
- 190g almond milk
- 50g water
- olive/coconut oil
- Combine the flaxseed and chia seeds with 6 tbsp and leave until it's gelled and thickened – this will take 10ish minutes.
- Whisk the spelt flour with the almond milk and water, then add the flax and chia mix.
- Oil the waffle iron liberally with your oil of choice – you don't want the waffles to get stuck!
- Pour the mix in, you will probably need to spread with a spatula as the mix is quite thick. When they're golden and cooked through top with whatever you like.
I went with houmous, sauteed chilli kale and a boiled egg. They're also great with classic fruit and maple syrup too.
