There's nothing quite as satisfying than having hot, crispy waffles covered in ice cream and chocolate sauce on a Sunday. Or any day really. Do you want to know the best thing about this recipe? It's totally gluten & wheat free, contains no added sugar and is ridiculously delicious. So, are we winning or aren't we?
Buttermilk Waffles served with Vanilla Camilla & Dark Chocolate Sauce
1 ¼ cup buttermilk
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup organic agave syrup
½ cup Gluten Free rolled oats (I bought mine here)
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of rock salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (I only get mine from here)
2 scoops Vanilla Camilla skinny scoop
25g chopped hazelnuts, lightly toasted
50g dark chocolate, melted (I used Lindt 85%)
Whisk together buttermilk, coconut oil agave syrup, vanilla and egg.
Add dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated. Allow to stand for 10-20 minutes
Preheat and grease waffle iron according to instructions. Cook ½ cup of waffle batter at a time.
Serve immediately with Vanilla Camilla, chopped hazelnuts and melted dark chocolate.
NOTE that batter can be made a day in advance- just keep cold in the fridge!
