Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 5 large waffles
1 Chia Flax egg (1 tbsp flax meal + 1 tbsp chia seeds + 6 tbsp water)
1 cup whole wheat flour (Or sub 1 to 1 GF flour blend)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 cup plant based milk
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (or substitute for 1/4 tsp vanilla bean paste)
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup Pulp Crunch (plus a few pieces to garnish before serving)
1/8 tsp salt
Add Pulp Crunch to a food processor or blender, and pulse a few times until crumbled into smaller bits. Set aside.
In a small bowl, add the flax meal, chia seeds and water together for the Chia Flax Egg. Whisk together and let sit until it thickens (10-15 minutes).
Add the plant based milk and the apple cider vinegar to a clean bowl or liquid measuring cup and let sit for 5 minutes to create the vegan buttermilk.
In a medium bowl add the flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Mix until combined, and set aside.
Combine vegan buttermilk, Chia Flax Egg, and water.
Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture, then add the prepared Chia Flax Egg. Gently mix until the batter is just combined.
The batter should be thick and not runny! If it is runny, add a few tablespoons more of flour to the batter. If it is too thick, add a few tablespoons of water.
Fold in the pulsed Pulp Crunch with a spatula until it is evenly distributed into the batter.
Turn on and preheat your waffle iron, then spray oil onto the waffle iron.
Pour about ½ cup of batter onto the heated waffle iron in the centre, then close the lid and cook until both sides are golden brown.
Serve the waffles immediately, or keep them warm in the oven until ready to serve. Top with maple syrup, yogurt, fresh fruit, and Pulp Crunch, and enjoy!
And there you have it! We love this fun way to use Pulp Crunch in a recipe; blending it in to the waffles is such a cool way to change up the flavour while also adding a fuelling extra dose of fruit, fibre, and nutrition to your mornings.
