Oaty carob waffles

I love oats and eat porridge almost every morning but I have been experimenting with other uses for one of my favourite ingredients! The oats make these waffles more filling and I have used apple sauce as a substitute for the butter or oil usually included in waffle recipes to make them much lower in saturated fat!

(Serves 2)

  • 50g Oat flour (oats blended into a fine powder)
  • 1tsp. Baking powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 4 Tbsp. Apple sauce
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 2tsp. Skimmed milk or any other kind of milk 
  • 2tsp. Carob powder or Cacao (optional)
  • 2tsp. Agave or honey
  • Spray oil
  • Berries of your choice
  1. Mix the oat flour, baking powder, and salt (plus carob if you want a chocolatey flavour) in one bowl, and the apple sauce, vanilla extract, eggs, milk and agave in another – I made my apple sauce by peeling and cutting one apple into small chunks, then stewing it in a saucepan for 10 minutes with 3tbsp. of water, and finally blending it till smooth
  2. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together
  3. Allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes while your waffle maker heats up
  4. Spray your waffle maker with oil
  5. Pour half your mixture into the centre of the waffle maker and close the lid
  6. Mine took 4 minutes to cook on the medium heat setting of my waffle maker but cook time will vary depending on your waffle maker
  7. Perfect with berries and a drizzle of extra agave or honey or a dollop of peanut butter
