Whole Wheat Waffles with Berry Compote

Some mornings just call for waffles. This is my easy, go-to recipe.

Ingredients:

2 cups almond milk (or your preferred non-dairy milk)

1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

3 Tbsp. sweetener (sugar, agave, or maple syrup)

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

Instructions:

Pre-heat your waffle iron. Mix the first four ingredients well. Add the last four ingredients and stir until well combined. You should have a nice, pourable (but not runny) batter. Grease your waffle iron (I use sunflower oil in a spray bottle). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your iron, or, if you have an old one like me, use trial and error to determine the perfect cooking time and then use a timer for the rest of your waffles. Place finished waffles on a plate in a warm oven until you’re ready to eat.

Meanwhile…

In a small saucepan, combine 2 cups of mixed berries, 1/8-1/4 cup sweetener (sugar, agave, or maple syrup), depending on taste, and a pinch of salt. Cook over medium heat until most of the berries have cooked down but some still retain their shape. Let cool until warm but not burn-your-mouth hot.

Put two waffles on a plate. Douse Drizzle with maple syrup and top with berry compote. Enjoy!
