  1. Preheat your electric waffle maker whist you get on with the batter. In a very large mixing bowl pour in all the wet ingredients and whisk them together thoroughly.

  2. Using a sieve, sift all the dry ingredient into the wet mixture and whisk dry and wet ingredients together until there are little lumps are remaining, there will always be a few but this doesn't matter so much. Cover the batter with a clean tea towel and let it rest for 15 minutes, this will ensure a light and crispy waffle.

  3. Spray or brush a bit of oil onto the waffle maker and then pour the batter onto the hot waffle iron plates, close the waffle iron and cook until the waffles are barely letting off steam and they are lightly crisp to the touch (please note the cooking time is longer if you use a waffle cast iron).

  4. Finally, very carefully lift the waffles out of the waffle iron by using a pair of tongs and serve with a dollop of coconut yoghurt, blueberry compote, extra maple syrup/sweet freedom (optional), cacao nibs and your other chosen edible garnishes.

Making The Blueberry Compote

In a small pan simply heat all the ingredients together and allow the compote to simmer and reduce down, this will take no longer than 8 minutes. Taste for desired tartness and sweetness and allow to cool completely before serving.

Top tips

These waffles are served best when freshly made on the day as they get stale quickly however these waffles freeze very well, just be sure to pack them up separately to avoid 1 massive waffle clump!

The compote keeps well for up to 3 weeks in the fridge.
