Hide and Seek Waffles

Hide and Seek Waffles

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!

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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!

  1. You had me a little concerned with the lead-up about a weird ingredient – but beets really don’t strike me as odd! I’ve heard that beets and chocolate go together quite nicely. Lovely photos!
