Maple Cinnamon Almond Milk Waffles

Maple Cinnamon Almond Milk Waffles

Growing up, my dad use to make my brother and I pancakes or waffles every weekend. He had a shirt that we called his 'pancake shirt'. It was a maroon L.L.Bean plaid flannel - I am not sure why we decided that was going to be dad's pancaking making shirt, but it was. My dad hung this shirt in the coat closet near the kitchen and every weekend, my brother and I would run into the kitchen, dad would put on his pancake shirt and we would all make pancakes or waffles from scratch.  

The pancake shirt has since been lost, but his homemade pancakes or waffles are still a staple in the family. I have (almost) perfected his recipe and have been messing around with a few of my own creations. This waffle recipe came about when I first made my Maple Cinnamon Almond Milk. It is super simple and makes a nice small portion.

INGREDIENTS

SERVINGS: 2 | about 6-8 small waffles

3/4 cup + 1/8 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp maple syrup
3/4 cup almond milk (I used my recipe for Maple Cinnamon Almond Milk)
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten

Optional toppings:

fresh berries
maple syrup

Note: If you use my recipe for Maple Cinnamon Almond Milk, you can use less maple syrup. It might be a bit too sweet with both! Totally up to you :)

Recipe

Heat a waffle iron. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add the maple syrup, almond milk, vegetable oil, and beaten egg. Combine all ingredients to make a smooth batter. Pour enough batter to almost cover the waffle iron. (If you fill it too much, it will overflow down the sides when you close the iron. Always better to put a little less than too much!) When the waffles are finished cooking, top with berries and maple syrup and enjoy!
