Whole wheat waffles with banana, dairy free

The Summer vacation came upon us just as quickly and surprisingly as it ended. I unintentionally took a break from the blog during this time and have now recently been working on some posts to get back on track with the blog again.
During the last couple of months, I have been so lucky to have been nominated for several awards too and my conscience is pretty horrible on that end. But, I am working on posts to say my thanks and respond to them all and hope to be posting them soon. All work in progress!

To start off the blogging again, I am sharing a delicious recipe for whole grain waffles. The oldest asked for waffles for dinner the other day and after giving it some thought, I figured that with some whole grain flour and some fruits and berries for garnish, it was not too bad after all, thus ending up with two very happy boys at the dinner table.

Recipe:
300 ml soy milk
300 ml apple juice
350 grams whole wheat flour
350 grams other darker flour. I used something called Fibra, which is very finely grained wheat flour compared to normal whole wheat. You can use other types too, but it should be finely grained.
2 tsp baking powder
100 grams sugar
1 tsp cardamom
1 egg
4 tbsp corn starch (Maizena)
200 ml melted butter (or dairy free margarine)
1 ripe banana, mashed

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the liquid, except the butter. Stir well with a whisk and then add the butter and the mashed banana. Mix well and let it rest a little before cooking.

Cook in your preferred waffle iron. I used one shaped like Belgian waffles, making pretty thick waffles.

Serve with good homemade jam, fresh fruit and berries and enjoy!

The boys enjoyed these with homemade apple jelly and also with fresh strawberries from the garden. You could also use my blood orange marmalade.

More jam recipes will be coming soon.

Tip:
You can make this recipe without egg as well. Then you add 4 more tbsp of corn starch (Maizena) to add a little bit more hold to the batter.

These waffles are perfect to use in the kids’ lunch boxes if you have any leftovers too.
