Banana Chocolate Chunk
It has been a while since I dusted off the iron waffle and made a real – not from a box in the freezer- waffles. Since we started school in September, we really have not taken the time to make breakfast. Except for oatmeal, because dumping all the ingredients into an instapot does not require too much energy or effort.
These can be made entirely in a blender if yours can handle the work. My blender has seen better days so; I blend a cup of oats in a glass jar one cup at a time. Believe me it is worth the work for light fluffy waffles even though they are made of thick cut oats
Banana Oat Waffles
2 Cups Oats ((I use Bob’s Red Mill Thick cut Oats that I received in a past Misfits Market delivery)) 3 Small Bananas ((or two large))
¾ Cup oat milk ((if you are using a thinner milk such as almond, reduce amount to ½ cup))
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon and/or pumpkin spice ((I used both))
1 tsp vanilla
½ Cup Chocolate Chips ((I used a blend of all the Aldi chocolate ))
** I have added a 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil to help crisp up the waffles and it comes out perfectly!
Again, if you have a blender that works wonders: add everything except the chocolate and blend until smooth.
If not do it in stages.
Either add oats to blender and pulse, or add to a deep jar or bowl and use an Immersion blender ((I chose the latter))
Once your oats have been pulverized ((Do not skimp here, really blend those oats)), add the rest of your ingredients ((Except chocolate chips)) and blend
Fold in chocolate
Let your mix set for a few minutes –
Perfect time to clean your mess and plug in those waffle irons
Once preheated, cook according to your iron ((4 minutes to perfection over here))
Serve with some local honey, or just dive in and eat with your hands. No forks necessary!
