Maple Pecan Waffles

My mum loved these waffles first go round, and the combination of maple and pecan and cinnamon just makes my mouth water. I aimed to create this recipe for my dad (ready why here), but in fact I ate them all before he was home!

If you don’t have a waffle iron, this batter works perfectly as pancakes too.


INGREDIENTS:

(Waffle mixture)

  •  75g (gluten free) oats, you could just use normal flour here too
  •  40g coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp (gluten free) baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml milk (of your choice)
  • 30g chopped pecans

(Toppings)

  • 1 apple + a sprinkle of cinnamon + 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 handfuls of (frozen) blueberries + 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 handful of pecan nuts + 1/2 tsp cinnamon + 1 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • Coconut yoghurt ( I love the marks and spencers one, but any tasty one works well!)
  • Pip and nut crunchy almond butter

 


METHOD:

  1. Heat up your waffle iron (or frying pan if you’re making pancakes) with a little oil.
  2. In a blender, blitz the oats to form a flour
  3. Simply mix the dry ingredients together, including the chopped pecans, and tip in the milk and eggs, stiring to make a smooth batter
  4. Once the pan or waffle machine is heated, pour in the mixture and leave to cook.
  5. Slice the apple finely and add to a seperate pan with a tiny bit of oil and a sprinkle of cinnamon. When the apple has softened and changed in colour, add in the brown sugar. Let this bubble for about 30 seconds and then transfer to a bowl.
  6. In the same pan add the blueberries, mash them up and and a little maple syrup to sweeten, let boil for a minute and transfer into a bowl.
  7. Finally, in the same pan (again), add in the pecans, heat until slightly coloured then turn the heat down, add a splash of maple syrup, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Heat for another 30 seconds, then remove from the heat.
  8. Remove the cooked waffles (or pancakes) in to a plate. Serve with your favourite coconut yoghurt, then top with the caramelised apple mixture and the blueberry compote!
  9. Enjoy! Send me a picture at @courgettiblog on either Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, or leave it in the comments down below!
