Healthy waffles with oats, spelt flour and Greek yogurt
Once in a while I really long for waffles. It’s not a staple for me to make so I’m always excited when baking waffles, especially when I want to create a healthier recipe which actually turns out right! So thrilled to share this recipe with you.
This recipe makes about 30 small waffles.
- 150g oats
- 140g spelt flour
- 1 sachet of baking powder (16g)
- 25g coconut oil or culinary oil (mix of mais oil, sunflower oil and rapeseed oil) + extra for baking
- 60g maple syrup
- 3 eggs
- 300g milk of your choice
- 4tsp vanilla aroma
- 100g Greek yogurt
- Optional: finely chopped dark chocolate
- Blend the oats in your food processor until you have a nice flour.
- Pour the oat flour into a big bowl and add the spelt flour and baking powder.
- Now melt the coconut oil and add it to the big bowl, along with the maple syrup.
- Mix everything together and add the eggs, milk and vanilla aroma. Mix again.
- Lastly, spoon in the Greek yogurt. This will prevent the waffles from becoming too dry after baking.
- If you want to add it some chocolate, now is the time. I did it for the last few waffles when baking them, so I had a mixture of regular waffles and chocolate chip waffles.
- The waffle batter is ready, so let’s start baking! Take out your waffle iron and turn it on onto the highest stand. Grease it with coconut oil (or another oil) using a brush.
- Pour in a spoon of batter (I used a spoon that was larger than 1 tablespoon but not as big as a ladle), close the waffle iron and let it bake for 2 minutes.
- Carefully open your waffle iron to check if the waffles are ready. If not, close the waffle iron again and let it bake for another minute or 2. If the waffles are ready, you can take them carefully out with a fork or a skewer.
- Grease your waffle iron for the next baking, and continue like so until all your batter has turned into waffles.
