Waffles are something I am very passionate about, brunch is important. As an athlete I can’t always indulge in a full blown brunch extravaganza. These waffles were a life saver on my sugar free detox. They are so satisfying and in a blind taste test I would choose these over any other waffle!
Banana Pecan Waffles – Vegan + Refined Sugar-free
1 cup mashed banana
1 3/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (room temperature, not cold)
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1tbsp Pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups All purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup roughly chopped unsalted pecans
Preheat your waffle iron, you don’t want to have batter ready to go while you impatiently wait for your iron to heat up.
In a large bowl, whisk the banana, almond milk and coconut oil. You’ll notice the importance of the room temperature almond milk at this point. If it’s too cold the oil will solidify and you’ll have chunks. Add the maple syrup and vanilla and give it a good whisk.
To the mixture you can add the flour, baking powder, sea salt and nutmeg. Fold in the pecans and allow the batter to sit for a few minutes.
Using about 1/2 cup of batter (depending on your waffle iron) cover the bottom layer of the waffle iron. Once the waffle rises it will fill the iron! Any more batter and it will run down the sides. Baking time is approximately 5 minutes.
These are a perfect guilt free brunch! I hope you enjoy.
