Ingredients

  • 2 cups Organic Quinoa Flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (gluten free, if desired)
  • 2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat waffle iron and spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together quinoa flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking powder; set aside.
  2. In a separate large bowl, combine banana, egg whites, vanilla extract, and almond milk until well combined. 
  3. Mix in dry ingredients until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips if desired.
  4. Spoon batter into waffle iron and cook until steam stops and waffles are golden brown and slightly crispy on the outside. Repeat with remaining batter. Recipes makes about 8 Belgian waffles.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have quinoa flour available, you can try and use whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour, although then they wouldn't be gluten free.

Instead of almond milk feel free to use coconut or regular milk.

If you don't use chocolate chips, each waffle is only 163 calories.

This recipe makes about 8 Belgian waffles.
