Chocolate Waffles with Caramelized Pears

November 27, 2017

Pancakes and waffles breakfasts are rare in our house these days. There were times when it was a standard weekend fare but then the kids were at home and life was different. Still, now and then I feel like making waffles and indulge: whipped cream, maple syrup, caramelized or fresh fruits, the works. This past weekend was one of those occasions and believe it or not, I made both buttermilk waffles AND chocolate waffles. There... View Article

Buckwheat chickpea flour waffles

April 1, 2015

Vegan Oat Waffles with Peach Sauce

August 26, 2012

I never liked the word vegan when it comes to nutrition . Vegan refers to animal-product-free foods, but it doesn’t mean anything in terms of health. Coke and potato chips are vegan, if you get my (borrowed from Dr. McDougall) point. I won’t go into a plant based food sermon here but may in the future. In the meantime, here is a waffles recipe made without eggs, butter or oil and served with fresh peach... View Article
