The other day I found an old fashioned waffle iron in a second hand shop, and absolutely just had to have it! One thing I love about Denmark is the well organized, high quality but still cheap, second hand shops to be found in almost any town.
I’ve never really taken any sides in the ‘is gluten bad for you’ conversation, but I do acknowledge that a lot of gluten products are high in fast carbohydrates and starch – which can be unhealthy if eaten in excess. For that reason I’m always experimenting with gluten alternatives in my baking and cooking, and of course I wanted to try this out with my waffles as well. I also made them dairy free, since a family member is intolerant, but they will turn out just as great with milk. In case you don’t have a waffle iron, this can be made as pancakes as well. I made them with some creme fraise mixed with honey and vanilla powder, topped with blue berries.
Ingredients (4 waffles):
- 4 dl oats
- 4 eggs
- 4 dl rice milk, almond milk, soya milk or regular milk
- 1 banana (optional)
- 1 tsp vanilla powder (optional)
How to make it:
- Mix all the ingredients in a mixer or blender and blend till smooth
- Heat the waffle iron or pan on the stove
- Grease the iron with butter and let melt
- Make your waffles, greasing the waffle iron according to need (if using an old waffle iron you will need to turn it manually)
Since the waffles look like little hearts, they could make a pretty cute birthday breakfast or just as a Sunday surprise for a loved one. They can also be served with ice cream or whipped cream to make it more of a dessert, or even be made into food waffles – with some spices and herbs, but thats a project for next time.
Here’s the final result – and with that, I will end this post. Feel free to leave a comment or question below.
