I want to thank you all for your condolences regarding the passing of young Fred.
He will truly be missed.
I know I’m in a bit of an emotional state right now, but I honestly cannot believe I lost my manners last night and missed out on making proper introductions…
Everyone, meet Willie…Willie, everyone! 😀
Ahhh, that’s MUCH better!
Now, I have to introduce you to a little recipe, but not BEFORE I give you a little background…
Ok, so last night, I obviously had some beginners luck with my very first waffle experience…in that it LOOKED good.
But I’ll be honest, it was a bit chewy. So this morning, I pushed up my sleeves (obviously figurative since it was a blazing 97 degrees out today) and set out to improve my technique!
And that’s when I made this:
Soft, fluffy, and NOT chewy whole wheat cinnamon waffle smothered in peanut flour sauce and topped with bananas and carob.
It was SO incredibly delicious…I just couldn’t believe it…AND THEN I found out what today is…
NATIONAL WAFFLE DAY!!
I was like #score! I HAVE to post this recipe today!
But first, I had to an errand to run. It was very important. It couldn’t wait.
But the whole time I was out, I was thinking about that waffle…thinking about the ingredients, the toppings, and how badly I wanted another one! So as soon as I got home, I did just that.
I was famished (errand running does that to me) so I quickly whipped up the recipe making only ONE small change…
In the original recipe, I noticed my batter wasn’t really thick enough so I threw in a tablespoon of coconut flour, butttttttttttt since I know not EVERYBODY has coconut flour (even though you all SHOULD…it’s the best thing EVER…next to peanut flour), I decided to make an alteration. I simply cut down on some of the liquid and removed an egg white…
Easy peasy, no?
I couldn’t understand…the batter seemed like it was the right consistency. So how the hell did it turn into friggin’ super glue?!
Lot’s of picking, scraping, and cleaning later…I was back to work! Oh no, I wasn’t giving up THAT easy! I was hungry….and I wanted that waffle!
So I tried again. This time I left the egg whites and liquid alone and added some protein powder…
At this point I’m STARVING…it was either scrap the waffle and have cereal or find some way to salvage it…
What would you do?
I’m still not sure what happened…my simple changes should have worked. I know it’s no pancake, but I think I know a thing or two about batter by now.
Unless he knows…
Unless he knows what came home with me today…
I’m sorry Willie, but you’re not the only new kid
at school in the kitchen!
And Debbie’s* not going ANYWHERE!
*Not to be confused with this Debbie* 😉
So I’m sorry to all of you who are coconut flour deprived…I owe you.
For everyone else, here’s your friggin’ recipe!
Whole Wheat Cinnamon Waffles
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3-5 drops liquid vanilla stevia (or other sweetener)
1. Whisk together dry ingredients to combine.
2. Place egg whites in a blender and blend until white and foamy (approximately 1 minute)
3. Add egg whites, milk, and extract to dry ingredients and stir JUST until flour is incorporated.
4. Transfer batter to waffle maker and cook until done (minute took less than 5 minutes)
Now, for all you non-coconut flour owners, go here and buy this…I like this company…AND they’re having a sale on the best coconut oil ever…what you don’t use in the kitchen you can slather on your body for a primo moisturizer…AND they didn’t pay me to say ANY of that! 😉
Did YOU celebrate National Waffle Day today?
What do you do with your kitchen failures…scrap ’em or save ’em?
Lol awwr I missed the death of poor Fred. My condolences. I’ve never killed a food processor before, but I’ve gone through a couple Magic Bullets if that counts? And maybe Willie has an inferiority complex and can’t perform under pressure? Better keep Debbie on the down low for now 😉
I usually keep my kitchen failures, but ONLY if they still taste good. I don’t discriminate when it comes to looks, but if it tastes bad then I’m not going to try and choke it down just because. And tbh I had no idea it was National Waffle Day, but I guess I know what’s going to be on the menu for tonight 😀 I might just take the lazy way out and throw some ready-made waffles in the toaster, but… I dunno… yours are looking mighty delicious!
How about for those of us without a waffle maker? LOL!
I do NOT envy that clean up… but I love the bowl idea! I could go for that for snack tonight.
Hi Willie and Debbie! Congratulations on your first (of many) appearances on Kiss My Broccoli! haha. (:
I almost always try to make kitchen ‘fails’ work somehow- I hate to waste food! And a waffle in a bowl actually doesn’t sound half bad. But, your WW Cinnamon Waffle…oh my! I need that in my life right now.
Time to bust out my waffle-maker…who definitely needs a name…
Ha Ha, I’m with Laura on that! Even though your waffles didn’t turn out quite that wonderful, great idea of making it into a waffle bowl.. pure genius!
I’ll eat my kitchen failures if they are edible lol.
OMG – you had me laughing out loud. I’ve had more than one Mother %@$#$@^ moment in the kitchen. and I should be embarassed to admit this, but that is one of my favorite expletives!!
Hopefully Willie and Debbie work things out. They will be working together after all.
Haha! Hey, go big or go home right? I have to admit that my weak moments of random expletives DO help calm me down a bit! 😉
Will you and Willie come visit and make me a waffle?? I promise I won’t make you sick. (fingers crossed) 🙂
Hahaha you are hilarious. And I admire your perseverance – I usually give up after just one failure. 😛
I’m not going to lie, I usually throw out my cooking failures. I’d much rather eat something delicious than eat something for the sake of not wasting food haha.
Very true! Luckily MOST of my kitchen failures happen to still taste good, they just LOOK awful or have weird texture issues…like the peanut butter cereal bars I’m STILL eating on that I made WEEKS ago! Lol
And I’m just stubborn and refuse to let an appliance show me up! I WILL win this Mr. Willie…just wait!
BAHAHAHAHA looks like my first time using my waffle maker babe! I WAS SO MAD
I have the worst time with my waffle maker. Waffle batter always drips out the side of mine, regardless of how little batter I pour in. Boo!
Hilarious. Love how you shared a delicious fabulous looking recipe, but then also the bloopers. That way I don’t feel so bad when I have kitchen mistakes.
my mini food processor hit the dust a while back too! i need to get my paws on a new one soooon! i miss it tons. blenders just arent’ the same unless it was a vitamix then we’re talking serious business – which of course i do not/will never have hah
Your friend Willie reminds me of my own grill, I love it you know, but sometimes, when I put my sandwiches in it and when I open it expecting the perfect crunchy panini and I find half of my meal stuck in the upper grid I want him to explode ! LOL very nice post !!!
Haha! Gotta hate those “sneaky surprises”! 😉
This post is no good for me – now I want to buy a waffle iron. =)
