Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside‚ these waffles feature a well-rounded chocolate flavor thanks to two forms of Cacao: Powder (to infuse with the batter) and Nibs (to offer little condensed bursts of chocolate flavor).
½ cup Rolled Oats
2 Tbsp Navitas Organics Cacao Nibs
¾ cup Whole Wheat Flour or Gluten-Free All-Purpose Blend
3 Tbsp Navitas Organics Cacao Powder
¼ cup Navitas Organics Coconut Palm Sugar
1½ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Sea Salt
1 cup Almond Milk
2 Tbsp Liquid Coconut Oil or Safflower Oil
2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
In a food processor, combine the oats and Cacao Nibs, and process for 30 seconds to grind the ingredients down. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and add the flour, Cacao Powder, Coconut Palm Sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine.
In a large bowl, whisk together the almond milk, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until combined.
Heat the waffle iron on a medium-low setting. Once hot, spray lightly with cooking spray. Pour in a generous ½ cup of batter per waffle and smooth out to cover the surface.
Cook for 5-7 minutes or until waffles are crispy on the outside. Serve immediately or store in an oven warmed to 250° F while making the remaining waffles.
