Buckwheat Collagen Waffles

An excuse to get out my waffle maker... Yes. A meal my whole family will eat... Yes. Buckwheat is naturally gluten free and brings the FLUFF.  I love sitting a giant tower of waffles out on the table and watching it shrink as everyone grabs one and then another. Strawberries + maple syrup are our favorite toppings.

Ingredients:

1 cup buckwheat flour

2 scoops collagen peptides

2 tbsp coconut sugar 

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

dash of pink salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 1/4 cup "buttermilk" (recipe below)

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

*Buttermilk Alternative*

1 1/4 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk

1 tbsp + 3/4 tsp apple cider vinegar

Instructions:

Combine buttermilk ingredients and let sit for 5 minutes. 

In a separate bowl, combine flour, collagen, cinnamon, sugar, salt, baking powder + baking soda.

Whisk the egg + vanilla into the "buttermilk" mixture.

Combine wet + dry ingredients gently until only a few lumps remain.

NOW add the coconut oil and lightly whisk again until well mixed.

Pour onto pre-heated + oiled waffle maker.  

Add the coconut oil after everything is all put together to keep it from getting too cold and lumping up. It's rough waffling when that happens.
