Waffle, waffle, waffles! HOW on earth could I have lived without a good waffle iron before? Basically I mean survived? I’ve eaten my fair share of these and my mind is jumping up and down like a little kid feeling giddy about future waffle creations. I love the endless possibility of creativity and flavours and the waffle iron is the threshold to it. I guess a few more waffle recipe are going to appear here soon. You wouldn’t mind, would you?
This morning I stared into an empty fridge and a rather boring pantry. It was obvious that I have not been grocery shopping. With a busy week schedule and spending a lot of time outside because it’s summer, the grocery shopping was always quick, calculated for 1 meal or just seasonal fruits. Some area of my life is full and alive and flowing, the other part: creating recipes, photography, cooking, having a filled fridge is blank. I am totally ok with it, as it gives me more freedom and energy and I know that life is just a weighing of components. This morning I felt my creativity kick in and managed to whip up a fantastic waffle recipe from scratch. And it wasn’t even the weekend. Sometimes there needs to be a blank space in order to realise and grow.
With these words I leave you to the recipe and pictures because I have a date with my waffles!

If using the egg, whisk it in a small bowl and set aside. Mix together the flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the milk with the egg, chia seeds, coconut oil and maple syrup and mix well. Combine the two bowls and place mixture in the fridge for 5 minutes.
Warm up your waffle iron and spread some coconut oil on it. Take the dough out of the fridge. You should have a runny yet thick consistency. Ladle it into the waffle machine and cook until crispy. Serve with your desired toppings & enjoy!
