Another gorgeous foodie purchase for me this week! A 3 in 1 waffle machine! Not only does it make waffles, it also has a grill attachment and one to make tosties. It's the waffles I'm after though! Yesterday I inaugurated my machine with Lorraine's waffle recipe, which made for a very light, gorgeous waffle. It must've been because beaten egg whites were folded in the batter at the end. Lovely stuff. We had them with butter and powdered sugar for lunch. Kirstie had a ball as you can see!

Today I decided to keep it a little healthier. I made us some vegan whole wheat oatmeal and banana waffles and served them with agave syrup. Kirstie was very happy to be served fresh waffles for lunch again instead of the usual Dutch cheese on whole wheat! I wasn't too disappointed myself! These babies were AWESOME!

Here's the recipe:

-1 cup plus 2 tbsps whole wheat flour

-2 tsps baking powder

-1 tsp baking soda

-1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

-1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

-1/2 tsp salt

-1 cup quick cooking oats

-1 very ripe banana

-1 1/2 cups soy milk

-3 tbsps golden syrup

-3 tbsps sunflower oil

-1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt into a bowl. Add oats and walnuts and stir through. In a separate jug mash the banana, add the soy milk, golden syrup and oil. Beat well, either by hand or with a hand-held mixer, until there are no lumps of banana left. Add wet ingrediants to dry and mix until combined. Let batter sit for at least 5 minutes. Prepare according to your waffle iron instructions. Mine take about 3-5 minutes. Serve with sliced bananas and some more golden syrup.

They look so delicious. I have always fancied a waffle maker.

Both types of waffle sound good :)

Nice to read you christened your machine with my recipe. There are lots of variations to be found and it's great fun experimenting. Kirstie looks like she's really enjoying it!
