Gluten Free Hemp & Chia Waffles

A protein-packed twist on a classic waffle recipe. Full of flavour and ready for your favourite toppings.
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: General
Servings: 5 waffles

Ingredients

  • 2 cups quinoa flour
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (or other sugar)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside. Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature. I always do level 4 out of 5 on our cuisinart iron.
  • In a separate oil, beat the eggs and add in the milk, coconut oil and vanilla. Pour the wet mixture into the flour mixture and stir until blended.
  • Using a ladle, scoop slightly less than one ladle full of batter onto the heated waffle iron.
  • I cook my waffles for 3-4 minutes. The iron should have stopped steaming and then you will know that they are done.
  • Add your favourite toppings including fresh fruit, a homemade berry compote, or my current favourite, a sunny side up egg topped with dried red chilies!

Notes

An ideal post-workout meal, or a great savoury twist to brunch!
