Vanilla and Buckwheat Waffles

Healthy never looked so good.  These buckwheat and vanilla waffles are great for a weekend breakfast or brunch, especially when topped with assorted coyo ice-cream flavours – they are dairy free, refined sugar free and so delicious! The ‘sea salted caramel’ and ‘coco latte’ are my two favourites.

If you have any supplements you take such as protein powder or superfood powders you can also easily add them into the waffle mixture. We add a plant based protein from Amazonia and have also included mesquite powder in this recipe. This ingredient is optional but does enhance the nutritional value of the recipe, as well as providing natural sweetness.

We hope you enjoy!
