- 2 cups water
- 1 cup oats (Use certified gluten-free oats, if desired.)
- 1/4 cup millet or cornmeal
- 1/4 cup flax meal
- 1/3 cup whole pecans or walnuts (I used a mixture of both)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 apple
- 1 handful sesame seeds (optional)
|Blend all ingredients (except optional sesame seeds, which we'll use later) in a high speed blender until smooth. (I use Vitamix.)|
|Heat up your waffle iron as per manufacturer's instructions. If you are going for a completely oil-free waffle (and you don't have a brand new non-stick waffle iron), you're going to want to sprinkle a few sesame seeds on the lower portion of your waffle iron before pouring on the batter. Now, pour on your batter. Sprinkle a few more pinches of sesame seeds on the top of your batter before pulling down your iron lid.|
|Cook waffle according to your waffle iron's instructions, but I wouldn't trust your waffle iron if it beeps that this waffle is done before 6 minutes. With my Cuisinart waffle iron, this waffle needed to cook at least 8-10 minutes before it was done. Remember, with all the oats and flax in there, you're going to want to cook it a little bit longer to prevent goopiness, for lack of a better term.|
|Serve up your waffles hot with your favorite fruit sauce!|
1. If you aren't going to be gobbling up these waffles immediately, I would definitely recommend placing them directly on an oven rack on super low heat (like 170 degrees F). Don't just set them on a plate. On an oven rack, the waffle's moisture has a chance to escape, keeping the waffle from getting soggy and "goopy," if ya know what I mean.
2. I have not tried this recipe on a Belgian waffle iron. There is no reason why it shouldn't work on a Belgian, but I have only used it with a traditional iron.
3. This recipe was inspired by/adapted from a distant relative of mine (Dr. Tim Howe), who was inspired by "Light and Tender Waffles" in the 7 Secrets Cookbook.
