So long as you aren’t allergic to chocolate, these Chocolate Tigernut Waffles are a wonderful allergy-free breakfast treat. I like to make them for my kids once or twice a week since they are easy to prepare and fairly healthy.
This recipe is not only free of all common allergens, but also Paleo and Vegan friendly. The waffles are sweetened with maple syrup and contain just 8 simple ingredients.
Chocolate Tigernut Waffles
- 1/4 Cup tigernut flour
- 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp ground flax seed
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 Cup warm water
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 Tbsp avocado oil
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- In a small mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
- Add in wet ingredients, stir well.
- Pour about 1/3 batter into preheated mini waffle iron and bake until done*
- Remove waffle, cool slightly, top with your favorite toppings and eat.
Recipe makes 3 miniature waffles, serves one
*I suggest slightly greasing your waffle iron with coconut oil, ghee or butter. These waffles take slightly longer to cook than your “average” waffle, but turn out crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
I use this recipe for my kids and since they don’t eat as much as an adult (yet) this recipe is just the right size to split between the two of them. It can easily be doubled to serve more.
The batter should be thick, as I find that works best when baking with egg-free ingredients. I added a little coconut oil to my waffle iron prior to baking the first waffle, but didn’t need to add any more after that. I did not have a problem with the batter sticking to the waffle iron, which is often my biggest complaint with waffle recipes!
