Three Flour Avocado Waffle - Recipe
A trip to Sante Fe in the American Southwest, where guacamole was often served as a side, inspired me to incorporate the healthy avocado into some of my favorite dishes.
Waffles are our go to for a delicious, quick, enjoyable meal any time of day - especially dinner. This waffle uses avocado to make a moist, fluffy, flavorful interior and a slightly crisp exterior- a perfect combination. Rice and rye make up the majority of flour with just a little bit of white to help with structure. This means it has a lot of whole grain flavor! I prefer this to an all white flour waffle. If you want to celebrate the avocado even further try topping it with my avocado salsa!
(Makes 9 4x4 inch Waffle Squares)
1 c. Brown Rice Flour
1 c. Stone Ground Rye Flour
1/4 c. White Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
3 tsp. Baking Powder
2 Ripe Avocados, peeled and pitted
3/4 c. Goat Yogurt or Cow Yogurt
1 1/4 c. Water
2 T. Real Maple Syrup or Sugar
1/2 c. Olive Oil
Palm oil for greasing waffle iron
In a large bowl whisk together the rice flour, rye flour, white flour, salt, and baking powder. In another large bowl whisk together the avocado, yogurt, water, eggs, maple syrup, and olive oil. Make sure it is smooth. A few tiny lumps of avocado is ok. If you don't have real maple syrup you can substitute sugar. Before heating the waffle iron, lightly grease it with palm oil. While you preheat the waffle iron, stir the wet ingredients into the dry just until the dry are incorporated. Begin making the waffles. You may need to adjust the temperature to find the sweet spot. They will be light brown when fully cooked and come out of the iron easily when approached from the edge with a fork. The outside will be slightly crusty and the inside soft and fluffy. Serve with butter, maple syrup, or avocado salsa.
