Little crispy on the outside, a tad chewy on the inside. It makes the perfect brunch essential… or just whip it up for a quick breakfast or for your child’s lunchbox (my kid loves it with some jam!). Once you make the batter – that takes 2 minutes – you can keep it in the fridge for 3 days in an airtight container for an even quicker breakfast. Just heat your waffle iron, pour batter, wait 4 minutes, and breakfast is ready!
Don’t have a waffle iron? No worries! Make them into pancakes!
The whole bag makes 9 larger (4-5 inch) waffles – with 7 grams of protein per waffle! – and 15-ish pancakes.
Whichever you choose to create from it, they will be not just deeply nourishing but satiating too. They will bring you a wonderful balance of Fat, Fiber and Protein, which are the three key building blocks to a satisfying meal that will maintain stable blood sugar for you, avoiding sugar/insulin spikes and crashes.
So why Charcoal you might ask? Well, you might have heard charcoal is a detoxifier. It binds to toxins in your gut and takes them out. Also, it looks really cool, right? 😉
Just like all my blends, super easy to prepare and can be enjoyed by most of your family members with various dietary choices. See recipes under the recipe tab or Recipes page.
Although I use a copious amount of organic chickpea flour to create this blend as well – the exact same as with the Chickpea Bread blend – to provide you with a nutrient-dense baked good, you will not notice the chickpea flavor! And the best part is that you can dress them sweet or savory. Our favorite way consuming it is with butter/ghee, fresh berries, and organic maple syrup. If you are craving something savory, try it as your good ol’ chicken and waffles or with avocados, sea salt, and a sunny side up egg.
As an added bonus they freeze really well. Sprinkle with a little water and toast up a frozen waffle or pancake in your toaster or in a cast iron pan on your stove (this is our favorite way) and you have a beautiful breakfast ready to be dressed up.
