Buckwheat flour and a variety of seeds are used to make buckwheat waffles. They are healthful, vegan, gluten-free, and extremely tasty. A wonderful way to vary your morning routine.
As I recount my travels in my book, Roaming Free, I realize that our memories of travel are deeply intertwined with the sensory experiences of sights, smells, and tastes. Nestled in the middle of nowhere, a cafe served up organic, wholesome food that left me feeling energized and nourished. From fresh juices and fruit salads to pitaya smoothie bowls, the menu was full of healthy delights.
But it was the gluten-free super waffle that really caught my attention. Packed with superfoods like chia seeds, flaxseeds, and coconut flour, this waffle was not only delicious but also nutritious. It's amazing how even the smallest discoveries on our travels can leave a lasting impact on us.
Buckwheat Waffle Ingredients
Crafted from a simple blend of ground seeds, buckwheat flour, and coconut water, the super waffle is a hearty and energizing treat that is sure to fill you up for hours on end. In fact, I was so satisfied by this tasty delight that I didn't even bother with lunch that day - and apparently, I'm not the only one! Surfers in Bali are big fans of this waffle for the very same reason.
The original recipe called for serving it up with fresh fruit and a touch of Javanese honey on the side. When I received the classic waffle maker from All Clad, I knew that I had to recreate this recipe. My version includes a mix of buckwheat flour, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and flaxseed for a gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free treat that's jam-packed with healthy goodness.
Simply mix the ingredients together, ladle the batter into a classic waffle maker (note: I haven't tried this recipe with a Belgian waffle maker), and voila! You will have a delicious and nutritious breakfast that's perfect for any morning. Just don't forget to top it off with fresh fruit for that authentic Bali experience. Enjoy!
In conclusion, this recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free super waffles is not only delicious but also packed with nutrients. Made from only ground seeds, buckwheat flour, coconut water, and a few other ingredients, these waffles are high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats while being low in sugar. They are perfect for a nutritious and energizing breakfast that will keep you full and satisfied for hours.
