A vegan recipe originally from Leah Leneman's "Easy Vegan Cooking".
- Put the oats and cashews in a blender and grind.
- Add the salt, oil and water and blend thoroughly.
- Pour the batter in a waffle iron and leave for a few minutes until cooked.
It was fun to see what would happen when I blended all these interesting and unusual waffle ingredients. I added a teaspoon sugar to the mix, and used nut milk instead of water, poured in the thick batter, closed the waffle iron and crossed my fingers. The waffles turned out crispy, crispy and so tasty. The nuts gave them a wonderful flavor which went great with my maple syrup. I'm so glad I choose this recipe...you will be too. Good recipe Missy
Well, I really wanted to love this recipe. I even went out specifically to the health food store to buy cashews to try this. And the thing is, that the taste was quite good. But it was so difficult to make that I find it hard to give it anything higher then a 3. I did use raw cashews (I'm not sure if that had any impact on this). I put everything in my blender and started it and all looked good. But then it all turned to such a thick paste that it would almost not go around. And it was so thick that I could not get a lot of it out of the blender. I ended up only being able to make 2 waffles. And then I had to let my blender container sit for 4 hours, changing the water every 30 minutes or so, to get it clean. I loved the flavor but I don' think the prep was worth it. I wonder if a little more liquid would work? Because the flavor was nutty and wonderful. I'll try these again Missy, and if you have any suggestions please let me know!
