Makes 12 waffles
2 eggs*, lightly beaten
1 red apple, grated with skin (reserve a few slices for garnish)
1 ½ C almond milk (or whole milk)
3 T coconut oil (or melted butter ;) ), plus more for cooking
1 C spelt or whole wheat flour
¼ C buckwheat flour
¼ C oats, (small flakes are best)
1 T ground flax seeds
½ t ground cinnamon
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
*Flax eggs work great here for a vegan option. Dissolve 1T of ground flax seeds in 2T of warm water for each egg.
Mix all the wet ingredients (eggs, apple, milk, and oil) in a bowl
Mix all the dry ingredients (everything after the oil) in a bowl or blender.
If using a blender, blend until everything is incorporated and not lumpy, but be careful not to overmix. If hand-mixing, add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.
In a skillet over medium heat, heat a bit of coconut oil/butter and pour about ¼ C of batter into the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes until bubbles appear in the batter and can be flipped with a spatula.
RESIST the urge to flatten your pancake with your spatula!!! Just let it cook, let it grow, let it get golden and delicious.
