Recipe 61: Waffles with Peach, Chocolate, and Tahin

I am so sorry I did not upload a new recipe in the last two weeks, but my life has been crazy hectic with school, work, parties, concerts, going to the gym, and still trying to function properly. I am very excited that normal life has started again, but I am even more excited that fall is just around the corner! Tomorrow will be the first day of September, which means that my favorite season of all is coming closer and closer and closer.
Those of you who know me quite well, know that I am not really into summer. I cannot stand the heat, and I would pick winter clothes over summer clothes any day. However, there is one bright side to summer: peaches. Of course there is more fruit in season, which I love, but peaches are one of my favorite sorts of food in the whole universe. I eat several ones a day, no shame. I try to add them to any possible meal because I just love them so frickin' much.
Now, most of my blog followers are also followers of my instagram, and I upload more there than I do on this blog. Last week I told them that I bought a waffle iron, and that I am super excited about making waffles all the time and topping them with delicious things. So now guess what? ... Waffles with peaches! These waffles are gluten free, sugar free, and good for you! You can top them with whatever you like, but I went with my lovely peaches, some shaved dark chocolate, and tahin, which is a sesame paste/butter.

Ingredients
  • Flax seed, ground or meal - 1 tbsp
  • Water - 3 tbsp
  • Banana - 1 medium
  • Oats, rolled and gluten free (or regular if you wish) - 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp
  • Egg - 1 medium
  • Vanilla extract - 1/4 tsp
  • Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1 pinch
  • Oil, neutral (I used mild olive oil) - 1 tsp
  • Peach, ripe - 1/2 medium (eat the other half while you bake)
  • Chocolate, I used extra dark - 2 or 3 cubes
  • Tahin - 1 1/2 tbsp
Instructions
  1. In a small cup or glass, combine the flax seed with three tablespoons of water. The seed should be ground because otherwise it will take much longer to absorb the water and thicken up.
  2. While you make the batter, preheat the waffle iron.
  3. In a food processor, mix all of the ingredients for the batter: the banana, rolled oats, egg, vanilla extract, baking powder, salt, and flax seed mixture. Process until smooth.
  4. The waffle iron should be hot by now, so work carefully. With a pastry brush, brush the inside of the iron with oil. It should be very well greased, or your waffles will stick to the side. Yet, you do not want a layer of oil in the iron.
  5. Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop, divide the batter over the waffle iron. This makes 4 waffles. Divide equally.
  6. Close the waffle iron, and bake until the waffles are golden brown. This should only take a few minutes.
  7. In the meanwhile, slice up half of your peach, and shave/cut the chocolate using a knife. You could also use chocolate chips. Of course this only applies if you are going with the toppings I have chosen for today.
  8. Take the waffles out of the iron, and top with your favorite toppings, and serve!
I am so in love with waffles, you would not believe it. I had these for both breakfast and lunch today, just because I can (those the ones I had for breakfast did have different toppings).

Enjoy and have a lovely Sunday!

Liefs,

Debs.
