RECIPE

930ml or 3 3/4 cups filtered water

150g or 1 cup dried organic soy beans (soaked a few hours or overnight)

145g or 1 1/2 cups rolled oats

90g or 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

45g or 1/2 cup desiccated coconut

20g or 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds

1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt






METHOD


*Place soaked soybeans in a pot of water and bring to the boil, cook 15 minutes, drain and rinse in cold water. Allow to cool.

*Place beans in a blender and add 2 cups of filtered water, blend until creamy.

*Add the rest of ingredients and another 1 1/2 cups of filtered water. Blend on high speed until completely smooth.

*Add last remaining 1/4 cup of filtered water and blend briefly.

*Pour blended mixture into a pouring jug and rest 10 minutes. Mixture tends to thicken while resting, thin out by adding more water a tablespoon at a time if needed. The batter needs to be of a thin consistency give it a stir each time before pouring into waffle iron.

*Heat the waffle iron following machine instructions

*Lightly spray waffle iron moulds with oil.

*Once waffle iron is heated, take a regular size ladle of batter and fill each mould, mine has two. Close down the lid and cook according to the instructions for your machine.

Lightly spray with oil each time before you cook the next batch.




SUGGESTIONS

Waffles soon loose their crispness once left to cool. To crisp them up again place one at a time in a toaster for a minute or so and eat strait away.

Make a large batch of waffles and freeze them. Layer between wax paper , place in a container and freeze. May be placed in individual ziplock bags and placed in freezer.

When needed remove amount required, pop into a toaster or under the grill to crisp up.
