1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp groundnut oil

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

80g/1 banana peeled weight

110 g white flour

50 g wholegrain rolled oats (porridge oats)

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp bicaorbonate of soda

1/2 tsp baking soda

Syrup

3 tbsp water

3 tbsp low calorie calorie sweetener

200-300 g strawberries

Light spray oil

waffle maker

How to prepare

  1. Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk together with milk, honey, oil and vanilla extract.
  2. Peel and mash the banana and blend together with the egg/milk mixture. Use a hand blender if needed.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda.
  4. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, blending them all the time. Do this until you have created a smooth mixture.
  5. Heat the waffle maker to medium heat and spray some light oil on it. ( I use the Cuisinart waffle maker level 3)
  6. Pour the waffle mixture into the centre of the grid and spread it out evenly until it completely covers the lower grid. Close down the lid and allow to cook. Leave for 4 minutes.
  7. In the mean time wash some strawberries and chop into small pieces. Add to a pot with the low calorie sweetener and water.
  8. Place on a medium heat and stir continuously until the strawberries melt and the juice creates a syrup.
  9. When the waffles are ready, serve on a plate and top with the strawberry syrup.

Note: Although this is quite a bit of work for 4 waffles, it is better to make this recipe in small quantities as the waffles taste best when they are warm and fresh.
