1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk + 1 tsp white or apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive, canola or melted coconut oil
1/4 cup agave nectar or maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
heaping 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
1 3/4 cups
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
Combine almond milk and vinegar in a small mixing bowl and let set for a few minutes to curdle/activate. Then add olive oil, agave nectar or maple syrup and whisk. Set aside.
Add dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.
Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until well incorporated. Test batter for sweetness and flavor. Add more sweetener or some vanilla extract if you want. I added a touch more agave.
Let set for 5-10 minutes while your waffle iron preheats. (I set mine to 4 out of 5 for a crispier waffle, but adjust yours according to preference.)
Once waffle iron is ready, spray on non-stick spray and pour on about 1/2 cup of batter. Cook according to manufacturer instructions and then remove and place on a baking rack in a 200 degree oven to keep warm. Do not stack and instead keep them in a single layer to ensure crispiness remains. Then put maple syrup.
You could enjoy this for breakfast one day. its gluten free and very healthy. Sometimes I like to enjoy this before I work out. I usually eat this with some almond milk or a nice smoothie. It gives you good calories to work out and energy.
