Its Waffle time !
Waffles have always been on my to-do list when I started getting involved in cooking. But it took a few years till I got hold of a waffle iron. Here’s a waffle recipe that I normally whip up when I have leftover oats at home. And as my whole family has a craving for peanut butter …I normally don’t miss adding it to my waffle recipe.
- 2 cups of oats
- 1 cup of milk
- 11/2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 small bananas
- 1tsp baking powder
- 3tbsp of peanut butter
- 2 eggs
- 2tsps of sugar (optional)
- Butter for greasing
- Preheat waffle iron , puree bananas and keep aside .
- In a bowl add in oats. milk eggs, banana puree , baking powder , peanut butter and sugar .
- Blend all ingredients till it becomes a smooth batter .If the batter seems to be too thick add in around 2-3 tbsps of milk.
- Grease the preheated waffle iron with butter .
- Ladle out the mix on to the hot waffle iron .
- Cook until golden brown .
- Serve hot with dusted powdered sugar and maple syrup .
- Sugar mentioned is optional .I prefer to skip the sugar bit ..but if you would like to have an extra bit of sweetness..you can add the ingredient .
Have you ever had that instance where you have run out of the store-bought batch of maple syrup and you are in a fix of how to recreate the syrup? Heres a quick and simple method of making maple syrup at home.
