Weekend waffles on a Wednesday

Posted on September 24th, 2014

Today I am grateful to our government for this wonderful and much-needed public holiday. A day of rest to gather myself and refocus on what is important.

I awoke to the swishing sounds of the trees in the blustering wind and knew that this morning was going to be a lazy one. Thoughts of the days events and what to have for breakfast danced through my sleepy head as I lay snuggled up in bed. I then suddenly remembered that there had been talk of waffles the night before and excitedly broke out of my sleepy daze to rush towards the kitchen for the new challenge of making waffles wheat and sugar-free.

They turned out to be absolutely divine and are a not-so-wicked treat to begin a new day. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
1 egg
1 1/2 cups of oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons melted butter
a dash of cinnamon

Method
Separate the egg and beat the egg white until stiff. Set aside.

Mix together the rest of the ingredients until just blended.

Fold in the beaten egg white until just mixed.

Grease your waffle maker and once it is sufficiently warmed up, pour in enough batter to fill the machine. Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 4-5 waffles

I topped these with thick Greek yogurt, honey and a berry coulis

*Note: I blended the oats to achieve a finer texture.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
