So, I got a waffle maker as you may already know from a few posts back (Banana Nut Waffles). They were delicious and so now I am obsessed with Sunday morning waffles! What I thought would be an intimidating proces has turned out to be pretty easy and also easy to experiment with. So, forgive me in advance for my new waffle iron obsession and potentially maybe a few to many waffle posts!
These are my latest waffle making endeavour. I called them "Yum Yum Yummy" waffles at the suggestion of my eight year old daughter who said they were "Yum, Yum, Yum, Yummy". A very wise girl, indeed.
I attempted to make these a bit more healthy by using some whole wheat flour. They held together beautifully and I am living proof that if you serve them to non vegans no one would be the wiser.
I topped mine with some blueberries, pineapple and organic maple syrup. Yum, Yum, Yummy!
Yum Yum Yummy Coconut Chocolate Chip Waffles
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups non dairy milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk)
2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp coconut extract
1/3 cup unsweetened organic dried/shredded coconut flakes
1/3 cup vegan semi sweet chocolate chips
Heat your waffle iron.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the wet ingredients and stir until flour is incorporated. Don't over mix- some lumps are OK.
Add the shredded coconut and chocolate chips and stir.
Cook the waffles according to the directions on your waffle maker.
Top with your favorite fruits and syrup and serve.
