BREAKFAST. We need breakfast daily. Not simply bread and toast all the time, or our favorite local prata, nasi lemak, chee cheong fun, etc. Once in a while make it special and different.
Lately I am experimenting with different types of whole grain and nutritive flours. I did the following breakfast on a Sunday morning which I know my family members will enjoy.
It is so simple once you have your ingredients on hand.
Avocados are always in my house, it is a staple for my daughter who eats it daily with one of her meals at least.
I told her I will make avocado pancakes the night before, but decided to do waffles instead.
At first I thought the buckwheat flour will not marry with the avocado well but I tell you, it happened to be a good combination. If you like buckwheat and avocado then please go ahead and make it because it gives a satisfying and fulfilling breakfast without the feeling of “Oh dear too much of a flour meal first thing in the morning”
The waffles were perfectly cooked, crisp on the outside and soft inside.
I gather this can be an all day breakfast meal if you include a piece of roast chicken or ham etc. Include a green salad and it becomes lunch or dinner.
That’s what I did with leftover batter. So enjoy a different kind of meal for a change, albeit a nutritious clean meal!
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend to a batter . It is alright to have some lumpy avocado.
Heat a waffle iron, brush with butter.
Pour half a cup of batter into the waffle iron and cook till desired crispness or softness is reached.
Serve with maple syrup, strawberries or blueberries and sunny side eggs.
You may replace oil with any other preferred oil or melted butter.
You may use half cup self raising flour and 1 ½ cups buckwheat flour.
As this is not a cake recipe, you don’t need to be exact in the measurements.
Please reduce the salt if desired.
Use ripe avocadoes if possible and if you use another 1 more avocado, you don’t need the eggs.
You can make pancakes if you do not have a waffle iron. Add half a cup of water to dilute the batter if necessary.
