Bite size desserts: This is the second part to our three-part summer food series.
Finally, it is Saturday and that means rest time, at least for some people. The base of this recipe (the waffles) has been posted previously on our Instagram under the title “waffle delight”, but hey, what is a recipe that doesn’t need revamping? Also, we thought it would be nice to have one of our favorite recipes up on our website.
This recipe was actually inspired when we were admiring the beautiful open sandwiches on Instagram. So we decided to use a base we already have and make another awesome recipe idea by adding both sweet and spicy/savory toppings.
Here are the ingredients:
For the base (waffle):
- 2 Bananas
- 1 Cup of oatmeal flour
- 2 Eggs
- ¼ Cup of almond milk
- Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste (optional)
How to make: Pre heat your oven to 350F or 175C. Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend to a smooth consistency. Pour it into a waffle mould, it will fill around 2 -waffle moulds (see picture).
Then put waffle mixture into the oven to bake for 7-10 minutes or when toothpick comes out clear.
Then let the waffle cool, while you prepare the toppings.
Ingredients for the toppings:
- For the sweet ones: strawberries, mangos (chopped and mashed), peaches, rolled oats and honey
- For the spicy and savory ones: avocados, cherry tomatoes, hot chilli sauce and pepper flakes
Throw these amazing fruits on top of the waffle you already made, voilà you have treats for your relaxing day.
They are pretty easy to make, with absolutely yummy results.
This recipe is vegetarian friendly, but not vegan. We are trying to make it into a vegan friendly recipe so our good Instagram foodie friend (@minyimak, do check her out) can enjoy it, as well as any other vegan that comes upon this recipe.
Time for favorites! Mine personally and oddly enough is the one with an avocado spread and pepper flakes on top. This is odd for me because I love sweet stuff, I can’t go a day without eating anything sweet. However, I loved the subtle taste of sweetness in this combo, as the waffles were already sweet from the natural sweetness of the bananas that were part of the recipe. The avocado and the sweetness from the waffle made a perfect pair, absolutely yummy.
Sandy and the rest of the family picked the mango spread and strawberry bits as their favorites, and I couldn’t blame them, it was yummy and so sweet. Plus, our family is filled with mango lovers, so you can’t go wrong with that.
That is all. I hope you enjoyed this recipe, and if you do please like it and comment. It is nice to know what you all think about it.
Thank you for reading.
Until next time,
