Vegan Waffles with Fried Pineapple

Vegan Waffles with fried pineapple and walnuts

The only thing I hate about waffles is how much work they are to make. I’m a minimalist, and also a lazy chef, so storing an extra kitchen appliance that has only one purpose and is also a pain to clean, just doesn’t really appeal to me. That’s why I usually opt for pancakes when I’m feeling extra on the weekends (instead of waffles).

But I’m at home with my family over the holidays, where we have a waffle iron, and a bit more time for extensive breakfast endeavors. So what better time than now to whip up a batch of waffles!

You can make these waffles gluten-free and can also swap the pineapple for a different topping of your choice.

Ingredients

  • 250 ml oat milk (or other plant milk)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 200g spelt flour (or multi-purpose flour, or gluten-free flour)
  • 50g chickpea flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 2 Tbsp tapioka starch (or corn starch)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp gingerbread spice (optional)
  • powdered sugar for topping (optional)

For the pineapple:

  • 0.5 pineapple, cut into cubes
  • handful of walnuts, broken into pieces
  • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Mix the plant milk and the apple cider vinegar in a big mixing bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Then, add the flour, starch, baking powder, salt, and spices and mix well.
  2. Heat up the waffle maker and start adding the batter to make the waffles.
  3. In the meantime, heat up the coconut oil on medium heat in a small pan and add the pineapple, maple syrup and walnuts. Add cinnamon and curry powder and fry the pineapple until slightly brown (about 5 – 10 minutes). Turn off the heat and set aside.
  4. Once the waffles are done, top them with the pineapple and some powdered sugar and enjoy!
