Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup teff flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sorghum flour
  • 2 cups Pacific Foods Organic Oat Vanilla Plant-Based Beverage
  • 4 tbsp. melted virgin coconut oil OR mild-tasting virgin olive oil
  • 1 3/4 tbsp. aluminum-free baking powder
  • 2 farm fresh eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • add pinch Celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom + more, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon + more, to taste
  • add 3/4 cup fresh berrries, nuts, chocolate etc. (optional)
  • add coconut oil + basting brush, or spray coconut oil
  • note raw chia marmalade, raw honey, quartered grapefruit, blackberries, slivered almonds, bee pollen, dried or fresh edible flowers
  • Preheat your non-stick waffle iron. I use an electric All-Clad round waffle maker and set it to medium-high heat aka “3” on the dial.
  • To the bowl of a high powered blender, add all of the ingredients (except optional add-ins): teff flour, sorghum flour, Organic Oat Vanilla Non-Dairy Beverage, melted coconut oil / olive oil, baking powder, eggs, vanilla extract, sea salt, cardamom and cinnamon. Blitz on high until smooth and creamy. It will be slightly thicker than pancake batter. You could also do this all in a large bowl and beat everything together by hand. Stir in any optional add-ins.
  • Once your waffle iron is nice and hot, brush or spray coconut oil over the waffle grids (top and bottom). Pour scant 1/2 cup waffle batter into your waffle maker, making sure to add a relatively even amount to each quadrant. Cook according to waffle maker directions, about 2-3 minutes per waffle.
  • If you find your first waffle is slightly too thin for your liking, add 1 tablespoon more sorghum to your batter until you reach your desired consistency. Alternatively, if that first waffle is too thick add 1 tablespoon more plant milk until you reach your desired texture.
  • Once each waffle is done, remove each waffle carefully (they’re relatively fragile) using two forks to lift each waffle out. Stack each waffle on a plate as you go, covering them with a clean kitchen cloth to keep them warm. Make sure to brush or spray more oil onto the waffle grids before cooking each waffle.
  • To serve, top with raw chia marmalade, raw honey, quartered grapefruit slices, blackberries, slivered almonds, bee pollen and dried or fresh edible flowers. Of course, you can simply top these babies with all of your favorite things! I personally think the citrus/honey/blackberry combo is magnificent, with some nuts on top for crunch. And bee pollen / flowers are just pretty. But do you!
