Waffles are a treat. Back when I lived in Brussels, I used to take the metro every morning and salivate at the smell of melted chocolate when crossing the town center. Truly there is no chocolate like Belgian chocolate. I have lived for years in Switzerland after that and believe me, there is just no comparison.
Back then i was young and wild and when things got out of hand on Saturday night, Sunday walks in the grand place usually finished with a hot, chocolate covered waffle in my hands and a chat with a friend.
It has been years since I ever craved a waffle, but I got given a waffle maker due to my instagram account (happy days!) so I have developed a little recipe to make waffles and absolutely ok thing to have without a shadow of a doubt.
Healthy and legere…
Ingredients (makes 4)
85 gr. wholegrain flour
20 gr. coconut sugar/sucralose (for diabetics)
10 gr. coconut oil or butter, melted
Simply whisk all the ingredients together, heat up your waffle maker and pour in the centre of the mould when it’s hot. Mine is not electric so I turn it around half way through cooking.
Be mindful not to have the hob at too high of a temperature of the waffles will burn on the outside and be uncooked inside (experience talking!!). They take about 6 minutes, 3 on each side.
You can eat with fresh fruits like these ones or with home made healthy nutella, that I will show you very soon 😉
