Equipment

  • 2 medium sized mixing bowls
  • 1 waffle maker
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 scraping spatula
  • set measuring spoons
  • set measuring cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • cup banana flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ cup milk or milk alternative
  • 3 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  • Warm your waffle iron and spray with a nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients - almond flour, banana flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients - the eggs, maple syrup, milk, butter and apple cider vinegar.
  • Create a well in the center of your dry ingredients, slowly adding your wet ingredients, mixing until the any lumps are incorporated.
  • Pour about ¼ cup of the combined mixture into each waffle well, or enough to just fill the bottom of the well.
  • Cook until golden brown, depending on your waffle maker about 3-5 minutes.
  • Top as desired with butter, maple syrup or berry compote.

Notes

Note: To maintain heat while finishing each batch, place finished waffles on a baking sheet in the oven on WARM.
Keep Warm: To avoid limp waffles do not stack or cover, this will trap steam creating moisture and cause the waffles to lose their crispy exterior.
Serving: To limit sugar create a simple berry compote. Use fresh, in season berries, (or frozen if out of season). Place 2-3 cups of berries into a small saucepan on medium. Simmer and mix and mash (using a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon) occasionally until you end up with a slightly chunky sauce. Add a couple tablespoons of juiced lemon or orange to finish. 
*This will take 3-5 minutes with fresh berries and ~10 minutes with frozen berries. You can add a sweetener to the sauce if desired.
