When you start a blog post and you’re not even sure what you’re about to share…. for me I have so much content in waiting both for myself, but to be mainly for other people at this stage, that I never know what I want to share until sometimes the last minute.
I remember when I started blogging I’d have at least five posts and recipes written with countless numbers of photos all sitting and waiting. Less is now more… or I guess I just feel more confident in sharing one image, one recipe, maybe one thought, or if you’re lucky, depending on your preference you’ll get a little bit of a random ramble.
When all else fails…make, share, eat waffles… I’ve been very much on a waffle kick/bender recently. My go to is always my buckwheat oat waffle, hearty, wholesome and as sweet or as savoury as you like depending on how much maple syrup or potentially Vego chocolate spread you add to it. This one is a chocolate protein version using a little Pulsin chocolate pea protein which I’ve kept vegan seen as it works perfectly fine without an egg so why add one when I don’t need to, it just makes it a viable option for more people. The more people that can eat waffles for breakfast the better, the world would be a better place.
As opposed to so many people, far from everybody I know as well, but in general there are so many people on cuts/diets/removing certain foods or food groups at the moment in an effort to “Eat Clean” or loose weight after over indulging at Christmas. I’m very much of the mindset that there should be no such thing as food guilt, there is room for chocolate in every day, and if you do over indulge here and there, aka eat more food than your body necessarily needs, the squiggly line effect will generally sort it out, unless you’re a repeat offender. As in, some days you eat more, some days you eat less, and your body will find it’s balance. If you’re really struggling I’d recommend seeking out the advice and support of a qualified coach who can best advise how to achieve rather that you making a hazard guess only to leave yourself feeling super frustrated.
Yes I do talk like this in real life, more breaths needed!
Chocolate Pea Protein WafflePrint Recipe
- 60g buckwheat flour
- 10g cocoa powder
- 10g Pulsin chocolate pea protein
- 1 tsp milled flaxseed
- 180ml water
- 1/2 tbsp (7g) coconut oil melted
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Preheat waffle iron.
Whisk together all ingredients in a jug until smooth and silky.
Grease waffle iron with spray oil.
My waffle iron accommodates all the batter in one go, do not overfill your waffle iron…, it’s never a good time!
Allow to cook for 8 - 10 minutes; time will vary depending on your waffle iron, mine usually takes at least 8 / 9 minutes to fully cook the entire waffle and ensure it’s crispy round the edges.
Serve with berries, dairy free yogurt and some nut butter or Vego vegan friendly chocolate hazelnut spread if desired! You’d be mad not to!
