Almond meal waffles: this recipe is easy to make if you need to get your breakfast ready quickly.
These waffles, I think, are too nutty and dry, although almonds aren’t nuts, they’re fruit. But with the right topping, this is a great way to start your day healthily.
What we need:
- 150 g almond meal;
- 2 eggs;
- 50 ml milk;
- 30 g broccoli;
- 30 g cauliflower;
We also need a waffle maker.
How to do almond meal waffles:
1. Wash the broccoli and cauliflower florets and cut the stems very close to the heads. Chop only the remaining florets and add them to a ball (30 g of chopped broccoli and 30 g of chopped cauliflower florets).
2. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk them.
3. In a preheated waffle maker add two tablespoons of batter and cook until golden-brown and crisp.
4. When ready, take them out of the waffle maker and put each waffle separately on a paper towel to avoid building steam in between them. I got 6 waffles.
5. Leave the waffles to cool and then add the topping.
Being a gluten-free recipe and because I don’t add any raising agent, the waffles don’t rise.
I don’t like to add sugar in the batter, I prefer to add some honey as a topping instead, or some salty bacon with cheese spread.
For the children:
- ripe banana, chopped;
- desiccated coconut;
- grated homemade chocolate;
- Manuka honey (minimum rating of 10 UMF).
On top of each waffle add ripe banana slices, coconut, homemade chocolate and Manuka honey as much as you like.
- cherry tomatoes;
- grilled smoked back bacon rashers;
- soft cheese;
- chopped spring onion.
Spread some soft cheese on three almond meal waffles and add them one on top of the other with grilled bacon rashers in between. On top of them, add chopped spring onion and three tomatoes alongside. This is what we like to call Daddy’s guilty pleasure:
