Einkorn flour is the purest form of flour, you know the stuff before humans get involved and modify/denature the plant. Although I love teaching science, I do not love scientists messing with the foods that I eat! My family prefers the closest we can get to natural ingredients. There are no long-term studies on all of these GMO that are used in foods and how it affects our bodies…… but I digress. That’s another topic for another post.
Above are the ingredients that I used to make my first ever Einkorn waffles. The batter’s consistency was thinner than I am used to, so I burned the first batch. Oh, and I forgot to read the directions before I started and realized that I had the temperature up too high. The back of the box gives you the recipe for pancakes / waffles. I added some flavor-infused olive oil and my favorite essential oil for breakfast recipes: Young Living‘s Orange.
Once I mastered the temperature and consistency, these came out great. They are not as crunchy as your typical waffle, but still tasted great. I think I added 3 drops of the Orange essential oil; next time I will add 6 drops. There was a hint of orange, but not too much flavor.
I haven’t tried the pancakes yet. We are currently doing a fast, so that will have to wait!
Update: The pancakes were SOOOO much better than the waffles! They were slightly denser than your brand name box mix, but had a great flavor.
