Banana Quinoa Waffles

Perfect for your next weekend brunch, these gluten-free Banana Quinoa Waffles will surprise and delight your guests. Soft and moist on the inside with a slightly crisp exterior, they’re perfect as is or topped with a little more banana and fresh strawberries. Our Royal White Quinoa adds fiber and protein to balance the natural sweetness from the bananas. Store extras in the refrigerator for toasting up on a weekday morning or take them with you in a baggie for a quick afternoon pick-me-up!
Servings 4 waffles
Author Chosen Foods

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked Chosen Foods Royal White Quinoa about ⅓ c. dry
  • 2 small to medium bananas
  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup Chosen Foods Chosen Oil Blend
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 ½ cup blanched almond flour
  • ¾ cup arrowroot or tapioca starch
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder

Instructions

  1. Add the quinoa, bananas, coconut milk, eggs, apple cider vinegar, Chosen Oil Blend, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and sea salt to a large blender. Blend on medium speed to incorporate the ingredients. Move the speed to high until the quinoa is fully blended in, about 30 seconds.
  2. Pour the batter out into a large mixing bowl. Add the almond flour, arrowroot starch, and baking powder. Stir well with a wooden spoon until smooth and thick.
  3. Add batter to a preheated waffle iron, filling to about ⅔ the circumference of the iron. For best results, keep the iron on the highest heat and cook 2-3 minutes past the average ready point for browning and a crisp exterior. Move to a cooling rack placed in a warm oven until serving.
