Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond milk or plant milk of choice
  • 4 oz cooked and peeled beet about 1/2 cup when pureed or one small beet
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Instructions

  • In your blender, combine nut milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup, beet and apple cider vinegar. Blend until smooth and beet is completely pureed. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. The sifting is an optional step but really helps to make the waffles fluffy.
  • Pour the beet mixture from the blender into the dry ingredients. Add the melted coconut oil and gentle mix the batter together. Do not over mix. Batter will be thick.
  • Heat up your waffle iron (see above for which iron I use). If needed, put a little oil on the iron's plates to prevent sticking. Once hot, pour 1/2 cup of batter onto your hot iron.
  • Close your waffles iron and let cook. How long will depend on how hot your particular waffle iron cooks, but you will know the waffles are done when the the steam has COMPLETELY stopped coming from the waffle maker. If there is steam, your waffle is still cooking. My waffle iron cooks these in about 5-6 minutes.
  • Once each waffle finishes cooking, remove it from the iron and place on a baking sheet in a 200℉ oven to keep warm while your finish cooking the rest of the batter.
  • Enjoy warm topped with berries, extra syrup, whipped coconut cream, or a little nut butter.
  • Allow leftovers to completely cool before storing them in an air-tight container in your fridge for up to 4 days or in your freezer for up to a month.
