Apparently, today it’s Waffle Day. And, really, what a brilliant celebration – especially when we’re all in need of cheering up right now!
To celebrate, I collaborated with my friends at Meridian to make these delicious Peanut Butter Blender Waffles.
These oil-free waffles are perfect for a lazy, uplifting breakfast or brunch (and, let’s face it, many of us are in need of that right now!), and are a huge hit with kids and adults alike. In fact, sometimes I prepare an extra batch and give them to my kids slathered in Meridian chocolate spread as a snack!
Since we all need to keep things easy and as stress-free as possible right now, these are vegan blender waffles – so it involves no mixing on your part. Just pop them in the blender and go! Hurrah.
Hope you like them too!
Peanut Butter Blender Waffles
- Serves 2 –
- 1 ripe banana, peeled and mashed
- One cup coconut milk
- 4 tbsp peanut butter (I used Meridian Coconut Peanut Butter)
- 1 tsp vanilla paste / extract
- 4 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 cup spelt flour
- 3/4 cup oats
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- To serve – maple syrup, nuts, nut butter, berries, coconut yoghurt
- Prepare your waffle iron by preheating it and lightly oiling, if needed!
- Place the banana, coconut milk, peanut butter, vanilla and coconut sugar into your blender and blitz smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until combined and smooth and the oats are no longer visible. Allow the mixture to sit for ten minutes to thicken slightly.
- In your hot waffle iron, spoon over the mixture and cook until golden and beginning to crisp – cooking time will depend on your machine. Serve warm topped with berries, maple syrup and a drizzle of nut butter.
