What a way to start the day with waffles! The batter is made with a mixture of all purpose flour and ground hazelnuts, giving them an amazing nutty flavor. Prepare the coffee, heat the waffle iron and get ready for an amazing breakfast treat!
For sure waffles aren't just for breakfast. Waffles are a great option to enjoy with your coffee or tea during the day.
Ingredients & substitutions
all purpose flour: for a gluten free option, use oats flour.
hazelnut flour: you can either find hazelnut flour in a store or make your own just by adding some hazelnuts or your food processor. Beat until grounded. Almond flour is a great option too.
vanilla extract: vanilla adds extra aroma. Another aromatic option is orange zest.
coconut oil: I prefer coconut oil instead of butter, but feel free to use butter if you like.
honey or maple syrup: 1 or 2 tbsp. sweetener, depends on the sweetness level you want to achieve.
pinch of salt
Step by step instructions
Make waffle batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients (all purpose flour, hazelnut flour, baking powder, salt). In another bowl whisk eggs, then add all liquids and stir to combine. Add liquids in the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix very well until fully combined.
Make waffles: Following the directions of your waffle maker, measure the amount of the batter directed into the waffle iron (my waffle maker uses about 1/2 cup of batter). Close the waffle maker and cook as instructed (My waffle maker needs 3-4 minutes for a waffle. Times vary depending on the waffle maker you own).
Serve warm with or without toppings.
When it comes to toppings, it all depends on how you are feeling! For a simple snack, just add some buttery spread like peanut- or almond butter or dust some powdered sugar. If you want something sweeter, drizzle some chocolate cream and some nuts or fruits. A great idea is to enjoy them with ice cream, especially during summertime. My favorite way is to top them with Greek yoghurt, berries, honey and hazelnuts.

Pure the liquids into the bowl with the dry ingredients and whisk to form a batter.
