Cinnamon Apple Tofu Waffles

YIELD: 3 Belgian Waffles

 

Cinnamon Apple Tofu Waffles made with Mori-Nu Plus Fortified Tofu

INGREDIENTS

 

WET

  • 2 packages Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm
  • 2 flax "eggs" (2 tbsp flaxseed meal + 6 tbsp water)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

DRY

  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

TOPPINGS

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 apples, cored and cubed
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a small bowl, mix flaxseed meal with water and let sit for 10 min to form the flax "eggs."
  2. To a high-powered blender, add dry ingredients, then process into a flour consistency. Pour into a large bowl.
  3. To the same blender (flour residue is okay), add wet ingredients, then process until smooth and no lumps remain.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients, then mix thoroughly. Batter will be thick.
  5. While letting batter rest, pre-heat waffle maker and lightly oil grids. Stir batter occasionally.
  6. To cook, scoop batter into the waffle maker and bake according to waffle maker instructions. Repeat with remaining batter.
  7. Set cooked waffles on wire rack so they stay crispy, or keep warm in a pre-heated 200ºF oven.
  8. While each waffle is baking, make the cinnamon apple topping. To a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add olive oil, then apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cook until apples soften a bit, stirring frequently.
  9. In a small bowl, stir together the corn starch and cold water to form a slurry. Pour over apples, then stir until starch cooks through and forms a thick sauce.
  10. Remove from heat and serve over hot waffles.

TIPS

  • Waffle makers vary in size. For a 7" Belgian waffle, scoop a little more than 1 cup of batter for each waffle. Makes 3 full-size waffles with a little batter left for a mini waffle!
  • Waffle makers vary in heat settings. Ours took about 8-10 minutes for each waffle to fully bake to a crispy outside with a fluffy inside.
  • Any variety of apples can be used, but we recommend a mix of Granny Smith apples and sweet red apples for both tartness and sweetness combined.
  • Waffles can be made ahead of time, stored in the freezer with parchment paper in between, then popped into the toaster for a quick and delicious breakfast.
  • PLANT-BASED: All ingredients used here are plant-based. This dairy-free and eggless recipe uses Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm to create delicious waffles that are fortified with added nutrition.
  • GLUTEN-FREE: Mori-Nu Plus Fortified Tofu is Certified Gluten Free! Make sure to check labels on other ingredients.
