June 29 is National Waffle Iron Day!
Although it was not my intention, it has been the year of weird ingredients. January started with oatmeal-coated chicken, and February progressed to chocolate hummus. You were skeptical about my powdered-peanut-frosting, and now I bring you something even more unusual.
I am scared to admit the hidden ingredient in these waffles. If you don’t read the recipe, you will never know it is there: the cocoa powder and sugar cover a multitude of sins.
I wish that I could offer some solace from these weird ingredients, but I intend to bring another strange recipe next week. Just trust me when I say that I only post recipes I like, and I can’t get enough of these chocolaty waffles!
- 3/4 cup oat flour
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup canned sliced beets
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Whisk together oat flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and sugar.
- Blend the beets in a food processor until smooth.
- Stir beets, egg, water, and vanilla into the dry mixture until well combined.
- Lightly coat a heated waffle iron with nonstick spray. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the iron, close, and cook for 3 minutes. Remove the waffle from the iron and repeat with the rest of the batter.
- Add your favorite waffle toppings: banana slices, chocolate drizzle, ice cream, walnuts, peanut butter, or anything else you would like!
- Eat and enjoy!
