Oat Flour Waffles

Updated: Jan 30


Oat flour one of the best flour alternatives you will ever use. I can list a myriad of health benefits, from being great for your cholesterol to aiding with high blood sugar, but it's mainly an amazing source of fiber and has great antioxidants. Okay so healthy products are a tad expensive, true, but all you have to do really is grab yourself a bag of whole oats or whatever variety you have on hand, get a food processor or blender, grind it to a dust and voila oat flour. Adjusting recipes using this flour can be a bit tasking as it absorbs water differently and is a bit lighter than wheat flour, but we enjoy challenges, especially the ones that promote good health and yummy recipes. Oats have that distinctive nutty and slightly sweet flavor that, to me personally, boosts every recipe. This recipe in particular gives a nice light waffle with a slight crisp around the edges that is enjoyable with both sweet and savory toppings. Without further ado, I'll let you get on to your recipe and I sure do hope you enjoy.

INGREDIENTS



1 cup Coconut Milk

(or the plant based milk of your choice)


1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar 


1/4 cup Water


1 tsp ground Nutmeg


1/8 tsp Cinnamon Powder


1 1/4 cup Oat flour 


2 tbsp Corn Starch 


2 1/4 tsp Baking Powder 


1/8 tsp of Salt



METHOD



●To coconut milk add apple cider vinegar, give it a quick stir and set aside for 10 mins. Milk will thicken somewhat giving a texture similar to buttermilk.


●To a medium sized mixing bowl add oat flour, baking powder, cornstarch, nutmeg powder, cinnamon and salt and mix well.


●Gradually whisk in your milk to ensure everything is well incorporated and set aside mixture for 5 -7 mins while you preheat your waffle iron.


NOTE: I use a non-stick iron but I still use an olive spray on it while hot to prevent possible sticking.


●Your mixture would have thickened considerably now that it has absorbed the liquid, you now whisk in your water.


●Pour batter onto waffle iron and cover, remove lid once steam has stopped rising from iron but you can remove waffle itself once it is golden in color.


This recipe makes approximately 6 waffles. I had them with Spicy Shrimp, Fried Plantains and Kidney Beans stewed in Coconut Milk.





Thanks so much for joining me for another session of Food Therapy. I hope to see you soon. ❤
