Crispy Bean-N-Oat Waffles

My kids cannot get enough of these! I haven’t exactly disclosed that they have beans in them – but I doubt it would dissuade them at all. They love the fact that they can grab a couple of waffles, pop them in the toaster, sandwich some peanut butter and applesauce between them, and have a yummy (and VERY healthy) breakfast (or supper)! I love the fact that they are SO incredibly good for you. I generally eat them with all natural unsalted almond butter and sugar free syrup. The process takes a while if you are making a few of them – so it’s really good to do on a day when you have a few things to do in the kitchen. You can then freeze them (or refrigerate them if they will be eaten in a few days) and have a very quick meal ready. If you are going to eat them at the time they are being made, it is not a bad idea to use a 2/3 cup measure to pour the batter, as you’ll just have a lovely grande-sized waffle and it will take less time!

1/2 cup navy beans
2 1/4 cup water
1 3/4 cups oats
1 T wheat germ
1 T flax meal
1 packet Truvia or other low-cal sweetener of choice
1 T baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon if desired, or to taste.
Few drops vanilla, or to taste
Few sprinkles of Also Salt (salt substitute) if desired

The night before: Place beans in a large bowl and cover generously with water. Refrigerate overnight or for up to a week. In the morning, drain the beans and rinse, discarding soaking water.

Place in a blender with 2 1/4 cups of fresh water and the rest of the ingredents. Mix until light and frothy.

Set aside and preheat the waffle iron.

Pour 1/3 cup batter onto the hot waffle iron and cook for seven to eight minutes, being careful not to open before that time has elapsed. (Or you will have a huge mess!) Waffle should be crispy and golden, and quite firm.

Repeat until finished, blending briefly before pouring each waffle. If batter thickens, add enough water to return it to its original consistency.

Add desired toppings.

Eat and enjoy!
