This recipe for healthier Belgium waffles will bring your weekend brunch to the next level! They’re crispy, delicious and can be topped with anything you like!
It’s a cold winter day. You wake up and it’s snowing outside. You put on a big cozy sweater, make a pot of tea and a big batch of healthier Belgium waffles. You curl up on the couch with your waffles, tea, and a good book.
Doesn’t that sound nice?
This is pretty much the image I have in my mind when I think about enjoying cozy foods in the winter.
Especially on weekends, I like to take my mornings slow, (no need to rush like on Mondays!) and enjoy something a little different for breakfast.
I also love breakfast (or brunch) on the weekends as a social activity with friends and loved ones. It’s a great activity that doesn’t require going out, spending money, and circling around for hours trying to find parking in a snowstorm.
Let’s face it, winter is a time for staying in! (Any other hygge enthusiasts out there?)
These healthier Belgium waffles are perfect for a weekend brunch (or hey, even weekday breakfast) to enjoy for some peaceful time alone or to cook and share with others.
I make mine with spelt flour, which is a less processed alternative to regular flour. I also use homemade almond milk to keep them dairy-free, and avocado oil for a dose of healthy fats!
This recipe is versatile, so you can use any oil you prefer, and regular or whole-wheat flour if you prefer.
I enjoy mine topped with coconut yogurt, berries, and maple syrup!
- Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon, and sugar together in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, almond milk, avocado oil, and vanilla extract together until combined.
- Gently pour the dry ingredients into the bowl of the wet ingredients mixing just until combined. Do not overmix.
- Heat your waffle press and spray with a non-stick cooking spray.
- Cook the waffles for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
- Serve with yogurt, maple syrup, and your favorite berries!
