Whole Grain Buckwheat Blender Waffles-gluten-free with vegan option
Servings: 7 waffles
These Whole Grain Buckwheat Blender Waffles are a great tasting easy recipe for crispy waffles that are full of nutrition and are a breeze to make.
Place buckwheat in a medium-sized bowl and cover with water (about 2” above the top of the buckwheat) and add the apple cider vinegar. Cover with a kitchen towel and soak overnight or for at least 6 hours.
Rinse buckwheat in a strainer until water runs clear.
Place the buckwheat and all remaining ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Add more milk or water if it is too thick.
Pour onto a heated waffle iron by ½- ¾ cup-fulls and cook until desired doneness.
Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy.
Store leftovers in fridge or freezer.
Buy The Right Buckwheat: You will find you can buy different varieties of buckwheat at the store. It's important to buy the proper one (hulled buckwheat groats), or your waffles won't turn out the way you want them to.
Vegan Waffles: If you want to make these vegan buckwheat waffles (which we do due to my oldest's life threatening egg allergy), replace the egg with an substitute. My son is allergic to eggs, so we always make these egg-free and they turn out great.
You can try a flax egg or chia egg but I can't vouch for those. This powdered egg substitute works great for this recipe.
Dairy-free Milk Options: I love using coconut milk all the time in my kitchen, but you can use whatever dairy-free milk you like. The recipe will also work fine with regular milk.
Whole-grain Substitution: If you have flour on hand and no groats, 2 cups buckwheat groats = 1.75 cups flour so you can use this measurement to use flour instead. You can then blend all ingredients in the blender if you like, or mix in a bowl with a fork or electric mixer.
