Beet Waffles (recipe)

Serves: 4 | Prepping time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 20 mins
Beet waffles are a surprising and delicious twist on traditional waffles. They are made by adding grated beets to the waffle batter, which not only gives them a beautiful reddish color, but also a subtle earthy flavor and additional nutrients.

Beets are rich in nutrients such as fiber, vitamins and minerals, and they also contain antioxidants that can contribute to a healthy immune system and overall health. With nearly 1 mg of iron per 100 grams, red beets are one of the most iron-rich vegetables.

How to make these waffels (how to prepare it)

  • Place the almond milk, beetroot, apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and vanilla extract into a blender and blitz until smooth. Set aside.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into a large bowl. Fold in the beet mixture, then add the melted coconut oil and mix gently.
  • Heat up the waffle iron, and if needed, add a little oil to the iron's plates to prevent the waffles from sticking. Once the waffle iron is hot, pour the batter onto the iron and cook according to device instructions. Repeat the process until all the waffle batter has been used up.
  • Enjoy the waffles warm topped with berries, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
  • Leftover waffles can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
