Whole Grain Blender Waffles are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, with a nice mild tart flavor that works so well with berries and syrup. Or for a special treat, whip up some fresh homemade whipped cream! Mmmm!
This recipe is an adaptation of Sue Gregg’s famous blender waffle recipe. It calls for whole grains, not flour, which you grind in your blender and then soak to create delicious and nutritious whole-grain waffles. Check out the photo tutorial below for step-by-step instructions.
If you’re new to soaking, check out “How to Soak Grains for Optimal Nutrition.” At first, it may seem strange soaking your flour, but do it just one time and you’ll be hooked on how easy, delicious and nutritious it is!
Blender Waffle Tutorial:
1) Place all ingredients in your blender or VitaMix in order listed. Be sure to securely place lid on your blender before turning it on. Then once it’s on and blending, remove cover and check to see that you have a good vortex forming in center of batter, as shown above. Allow to blend for about 2-3 minutes to ensure grains are well ground.
2) If you lose the vortex while the blender is still grinding your grains, just slowly add a little Kefir (or buttermilk) until it reappears.
3) Cover blender and place in warm area of your kitchen for 12-24 to soak.
4) After soaking is complete, add egg (use a spoon to move the egg to the bottom of the blender before turning it on), begin blending with cover on, then remove cover and check that you have the vortex, if not, add a little Kefir (or buttermilk) until you do. Then add the rising agents and blend just a minute to mix in.
5) Pour finished batter into hot, well-oiled waffle iron. Bake 4 minutes and serve immediately – nice and hot! Enjoy!
