Cashew Waffles

These nourishing grain free waffles are flavourful, crisp and filling. I always make a double batch with the intention of freezing half, but they never make it to the freezer, someone always gets to them first! They started out as a weekend recipe, but they are surprisingly quick, sometimes by special request I will even make them on a weekday morning.

Almond Butter - Nut Butters

Making your own almond butter is a pretty quick and easy thing to do! You essentially throw the almonds in a food processor, blend, add oil, blend - voila...

Almond butter and other nut butters are great for smoothies, toast, cookies, rubs, salad dressing and snacking with veggies. They are a great source of protein and full of nutritious oils. Keep in the fridge and make smaller batches to ensure freshness.

This recipe uses almonds only but try keeping the quantity of nuts the same and just shifting what types you use. Try hazelnut butter or cashew butter or sesame seed paste. Just don't add in any oil until it seems like it needs it as many have enough of their own natural oils that will be enough.
