Ingredients

Equipment
  • Waffle Iron
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Saucepan

Method
  1. It is recommended to make the Chia gel the night before, which simply involves soaking the Chia seeds in water (1 tbsp Chia Seeds to 3 tbsp of water)
  2. In the morning - Mix the flour, baking powder and lucuma together in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the chia gel (that acts like an egg to bind) and vanilla bean paste togther. Add the almond milk a little at a time, stirring well, until it has combined with the chia mix.
  4. Create a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and slowly begin to pour in the chia mix, stirring constantly to form a batter. Be careful not to mix the batter any more than necessary - it doesn't need to be completely smooth. Now add the melted butter and gently mix in.
  5. Set the batter aside for ten minutes.
  6. In the meantime, add the spiralised apple, cinnamon and water into a large pan. Heat over a medium high heat and simmer for ten minutes until the apples are soft.
  7. Set the waffle maker to heat up.
  8. Gently mix the apples into the waffle batter and scoop around a quarter (depending on the size of your waffle maker) of the mix onto the iron. Press and cook according to your machine and preference (I chose a medium setting).
  9. Once cooked and golden brown, remove the waffle from the machine and place on a piece of kitchen paper to prevent it becoming soggy.
  10. Repeat the process for each waffle.
  11. Serve with plant-based honey, syrup or a caramel sauce.
