In my last article, I delved into the benefits of pure Maple Syrup and how it is a great alternative to any artificial sweetener. To further compliment that piece, I have teamed up with my close friend David Scott (who moonlights as a Chef at the beloved 3 Little Figs in Somerville, MA) to bring you a delicious moringa waffle recipe.
These moringa waffles take around 20 minutes to whisk up and maintain that perfect balance of crispy on the outside yet tender on the inside. These waffles are a great, Super-Bowl worthy snack that can be topped with either savory or sweet ingredients. I’ve included side notes so that all Kuli Kuli readers, regardless of dietary restrictions, can hunker down and indulge in these tasty waffles. This Moringa recipe is sure to be a game-changer! Enjoy!
Moringa Waffle Ingredients:
1 egg — (Ener-G Egg replacer for our Vegan readers)
1 1/4 cups of Organic Grassmilk — (Any alternative milk will do)
½ cup of organic Greek yogurt — (non-dairy yogurt for our Vegan readers)
2 cups of Organic flour — (Oat Flour for our Gluten-free readers)
½ tsp of salt
½ tsp of vanilla extract (Optional)
1 tbsp of baking powder
1 tbsp of Moringa powder
½ tsp of cinnamon (Optional)
Optional Toppings for Sweet Waffles:
Optional Toppings for Savory Waffles:
Egg (Any Style)
1) Preheat Waffle Maker. In a medium bowl, whisk egg, milk, Greek yogurt and sugar together.
2) Add flour, baking soda, Moringa powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt until all ingredients are combined. Mix until all ingredients are blended but don’t try to smooth out all the lumps. Embrace the lumps! ( Tip from Chef David: Over-mixing can cause waffles to be chewy).
3) Let the waffle mix sit for 4-5 minutes ( The longer the batter sits, the crispier the waffle)!]
4) Grease the waffle maker with oil or butter (I used coconut oil). Serve with savory or sweet toppings and repeat as desired. Enjoy!
