- 1 cup of gluten free rolled oats
- ¼ cup of peanut butter spread with extra protein
- ½ cup of almond milk
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- ½ tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 whole egg
- ¼ cup of unsweetened apple sauce
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- Organic honey
- Dark chocolate chips for topping, optional
- Banana slices and berries for topping, optional
- Maple syrup for topping, optional
- Melted peanut butter for topping, optional
1Prepare a food processor or blender and add the gluten free oats in it. Blend until the oats turn to powder or something close to it. When the oat reaches to powdery texture, add all the remaining ingredients except for the topping ingredients. Blend until the entire ingredients turn into thick batter. Make sure to stop every once in a while, and scrape the side to make sure all batter is included and well processed.
2When it turns into batter, transfer it into a large mixing bowl and keep it in the fridge for around 20 minutes. When you are ready to cook, take out the batter and prepare a waffle iron. Layer the waffle iron with cooking spray, and place over medium high heat.
3When the waffle iron is hot enough, pour the batter bit by bit and cook until it reaches fluffy texture and it turns brown. It should take around 5 minutes depending on your heat and waffle iron. Repeat the step until all the batter is cooked. When the waffle is ready, transfer it into a serving plate. Top the waffle with maple syrup, fruit, and melted peanut butter.
