We gave Parker a waffle iron for her birthday last year (and yes, we did go on a month long waffle binge after that). This morning, while rummaging through the fridge for something to have for breakfast, we were reminded of how easy it is to whip up a batch before work and school. Seriously. It's very easy. We have this waffle iron and it works great. Here's my recipe:
1 cup flour
1 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons oil (i'm partial to olive oil in everything..but, you can use vegetable if you like)
1 egg (leave this out if you want to make these vegan, just add a little more coconut milk as needed)
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar (I use vanilla sugar...that I made...see below for that recipe)
Mix it all up and pour into your waffle iron.
This makes two waffles in our waffle iron.
You can also make a bunch on the weekend and freeze them. They toast up better than eggos, for sure.
We were lucky enough to have a neighbor friend who brought us a jar of his homemade maple syrup (something that is not as easy to do as making waffles) - an unbelievably awesome gift to receive!!!
