Recipe: Crispy Cassava Blender Waffle Recipe
Makes about 10 standard square waffles
- 1 cup Otto’s Cassava Flour
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 organic eggs
- 1-2 tsp real vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp organic virgin unrefined coconut oil
- 1.5 cups coconut or almond milk
- Preheat waffle iron.
- Take your blender and literally toss ALL the ingredients in.
- Blend all for about 30sec-1min or until well mixed.
- Check batter; if it seems too thick still, add a splash more almond/coconut milk or water. You want it thick but still able to pour.
- Pour onto waffle iron and cook!
- Remove when crispy and golden brown on the outside. Top with desired ingredients. I made a wild blueberry compote for these; see below for recipe.
