Dr Eva says that "It just shows how you can make healthy food that is super tasty." Note: You will need a waffle maker!
- 1 medium egg
- 150 ml milk
- 1 tblsp honey
- 1 tblsp groundnut oil
- 0.25 tsp vanilla extract
- 80 g banana (peeled weight)
- 110 g white flour
- 50 g porridge oats
- 0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
- 0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 0.5 tsp baking soda
- 3 tblsp water
- 3 tblsp low-calorie sweetener
- 300 g strawberries
- light spray oil
- Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk together with the milk, honey, oil and vanilla extract.
- Peel and mash the banana and blend together with the egg/milk mixture. You may need to use a hand blender.
- In a separate bowl mix the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, blending them all the time.
- Do this until you have created a smooth mixture. Heat the waffle maker to a medium heat (I use a Cuisinart waffle maker set at level 3) and spray some light spray oil on it.
- 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 about 4 minutes (or until your machine beeps to indicate it’s ready). In the meantime, wash some strawberries and chop into small pieces.
- Add to a pot with the low-calorie sweetener and the water. Place on a medium heat and stir continuously until the strawberries melt and the juice creates a syrup. When the waffles are ready, serve on a plate and top with the strawberry syrup.
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.
