Banana Waffles with Blueberry Compote

Firstly who ever said being Coeliac/gluten free was boring? I don’t think many people understand we don’t just eat lettuce – or that we’re restricted to the free from section in supermarkets! I try to make everything from scratch with healthy, wholesome ingredients; thus keeping the cost of my food shopping down and allowing me to choose exactly what ingredients I’m putting into my body.

These waffles are made with ingredients you probably already have in your food cupboard. They’re filling, really easy to make and taste amazing, need I say more? Although the batter is made with banana it’s such a versatile base for breakfast, so go crazy with toppings and flavour combinations!

Ingredients
Serves 2

Waffle mix
– 1 cup GF oats (100g)
– 1/2 ripe banana
– 1 egg
– 1/2 cup milk (120ml)
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp nutmeg
– 1/2 tsp baking powder

Blueberry compote
– 1/3 cup blueberries (35g)
– 1tsp water
– drizzle of honey

*I used Frylight Coconut Oil to spray on the waffle iron before pouring on the batter.

Method
Preheat
waffle iron to required temperature.

Add the blueberries, water and honey into a small saucepan to make the blueberry compote. Cook on a medium heat for around 8-10mins until the blueberries start to break down and there’s a lovely, sticky sauce.

Whilst your blueberries are cooking, add all the ingredients for the waffle mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Spray the heated waffle iron with your chosen cooking spray and poor on half the batter, spreading the mixture into each corner. Close the lid and cook for around 3mins or until the waffle is golden and crisp, then transfer to your plate. Repeat with remaining batter.

Finish off your waffles with the blueberry compote and any other desired toppings – I had mine with greek yogurt, honey and the other half of the banana, yum!
