These waffles from The Blue Zones Kitchen have a complex texture and a complex taste, minus the complex cooking experience. Add in the fact that they’re made with whole wheat flour, heart-healthy nuts, and fresh berries and you’ve got a powerhouse breakfast or a fun breakfast-for-dinner meal.
Total Cook Time: 15 minutes | Makes 4 Servings (8 Waffles)
1 cup whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour, or a combination of both
½ cup cornmeal (use blue cornmeal for a striking presentation)
½ teaspoon baking soda
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons oil
¼ cup applesauce
1 ¼ cups almond milk
2 tablespoons diced roasted green chilies (optional)
*To make cashew cream (useful in everything from creamy soups to pasta sauces to puddings): Blend 1 cup raw cashews (soaked 3 hours or overnight in hot water and drained) with ½ cup water in a blender or food processor at high speed. Blend until completely smooth. Drizzle in extra water as needed to reach desired consistency. For cashew whipped cream, combine with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup.
