  1. 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
  2. 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!


I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=43 and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
