We actually googled and searched a whole much of different waffle recipes. Though we really love our protein waffles we wanted to see what other waffles recipes would be like. We love studying recipes and creating our own take on the recipe. —> yes, we love reading recipes.
The waffles we made over the weekend for our parents were a big hit. We found the technique to making good waffles is in the eggs! Well, how you beat the egg whites separately from the yolks. We mixed our egg whites for 5 minutes.
By whipping the egg whites for 5 minutes really helped form the peaks, which helped in the final texture of our waffles.
Amount of waffles will depend on how much batter you scoop into each waffle mold in waffle maker.
Waiting for the waffles to bake is the hardest part.
To help pass the time you can get your toppings ready: maple syrup, hazelnut meal, and blueberry kefir (any yogurt or kefir would be fine)
Do you agree?
Breakfast is a great time to bond with family…
especially with yummy waffles
and a good cup of coffee well at least in our house on weekend mornings.
purelytwins recipe: Lemon Cardamom Hazelnut Waffles (gluten free, dairy free, soy free, low in sugar)
makes: about 6-8 large waffles
tools needed: waffle maker (or you can make them as pancakes)
- 3/4 hazelnut flour/meal (we ground whole hazelnuts into flour in our Vita-Mix)
- 1 cup millet flour (or any gluten free flour)
- 2 tbsp flax meal
- 2 tbsp brown rice protein
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 egg whites
- 3 egg yolks
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp Erythritol sugar (or any sugar of your liking would work)
- 2 tsp cardamom
- zest of 2 lemons
Place all dry ingredients into a large bowl and combine. Set aside.
Next separate your 3 eggs. Place your egg whites into a bowl and place your egg yolks in with your dry ingredients. Beat your egg whites for at least 5 minutes. —> if do not have a hand mixer, then it will be a good arm workout!
Once your egg whites are light and foamy, set aside. Add in your remaining ‘wet ingredients’ and stir. Then slowly add in your egg whites and fold in.
Have your waffle maker heated and ready to go. Scoop out your waffle batter into your waffle maker. Cooking times will vary depending on what setting you have your waffle maker set at.
Repeat filling your waffle maker until all your batter is used up.
Once waffles are done cooking, pop them out of waffle maker and place on plate and top with your favorite toppings.
We topped our hazelnut gluten free waffles with blueberry and coconut kefir mix. Basically we placed about 1/2-3/4 cup frozen blueberries into our Vita-Mix and added in about 2-3 tablespoons coconut kefir to blender. Blended till it was nice and smooth.
Additionally toppings: maple syrup and more ground hazelnuts.
Hope you enjoy our lemon cardamom hazelnut waffles. Let us know if you make it.
Do you and your family have breakfast together on the weekends?
