Date sweetened wakies (Waffles cookies)

You’re probably wondering how I came with the idea to make chocolate chips cookies waffles or “wakies”. In fact, that’s an idea from my boyfriend!
He thought it would be a great idea to make cookies in my waffle iron and he was a genius! 😉

I created kind of a chocolate chips cookies recipe which is quite “healthy” and simply cooked it in the waffle iron. The texture isn’t the same as waffles, more crumbly and still really yummy when eating cold and of course, the chocolate chips make the whole things absolutely incredible!
I thought I should have made a more “junk food” version for my boyfriend, but no! He likes those which made me sooo proud of me ahah

So, if you have a waffle iron, try those! You shouldn’t be disappointed 😉

RECIPE

  • 1 ¼ cup flour (1/4 cup oat flour + 1 cup spelt flour)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 dates (optimal result with those : https://palmyradelights.ch/fr/shop/palmyra-cooking-3kg-pitted-4/)
  • 1 tbsp grounded flax seeds + 3 tbsps water
  • 4 tbsps oatmilk
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips or a bit more
  • A pinch of salt

Start by making the flax egg : Mix the flax seeds with the water and let sit until thick.

Put all the dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a bowl.

Blend the dates with the milk and the peanut butter.

Put the liquid coconut oil in the dry ingredients and “crumble” the mixture. Add the date paste and the flax egg and stir until well combined.

Add the chocolate chips and cook in your waffle iron according to the instructions. (Mine took approx. 3-5 min. to be ready ;-)) I didn’t need to oil my iron, but depending on yours, it may be better!

Let cool a little bit and enjoy while the chocolate is still warm for best sensations! 😉

Date sweetened waffles

As I received my first waffle maker for Christmas from my boyfriend, waffles are my new obsession!

They’re seriously so easy and quick to make! Even ore than panckaes or crepes, because you don’t need to stay in front of a pan during the cooking process 😉

I decided to create some different recipes and here is the first one : Date sweetened and oil-free waffles!

They turned out amazing, crispy and soft at the same time! (the result may vary according to your waffle maker, of course..)

RECIPE

  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax seeds + 3 tbsps water)
  • 4 dates (I use the plamyra cooking from https://palmyradelights.ch/en/shop/)
  • 1 cup + 4 tbsps plantbased milk
  • ½ tsp apple cider vinegar

Dry ingredients :

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Turn on your waffle maker.

Prepare the flax egg by mixing the requiring ingredients in a little bowl.

Blend the dates and the plantbased milk, add the apple cider vinegar.

In a large bowl, put all the dry ingredients and mix them. Then, add the date mixture and the flax egg and stir until well combined.

You can make the waffles directly or let the dough sit for a while (and even overnight!)

The cooking time really depends on your waffle maker (mine is approx. 5 min.) and grease it with a bit of coconut oil for better results 😉

They’re better when eating warm and topped with your favorite toppings!
