Inspired by my old time love affair with chicken pot pie and my always wandering eye when it comes to chicken and waffles, I created a recipe that combined the two into a delicious, more reasonable version of the classic.
TURMERIC WAFFLES INGREDIENTS
⅓ cup coconut milk or almond milk
3 tablespoons melted coconut oil, plus a bit extra for greasing
1 tablespoon 100% maple syrup (optional), plus extra for serving
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1¼ cup almond flour
1 tablespoon turmeric powder or 2 tablespoons freshly juiced turmeric
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
TURMERIC WAFFLES ASSEMBLY
1 | Use coconut oil to grease your waffle iron, preheating it while you prepare your batter.
2 | Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and mix until batter is formed.
3 | Pour into prepared waffle iron and cook for the recommended time.
*Yields about 6 waffles.
