Avocado is one of our favorite food around here. The whole family loves it! We add it into salads, guacamole, dips like my avocado mint dip or eat it as is with a squeeze of lemon. Avocados are packed with nutrients and they are a great source of much needed monounsaturated fats so I love to use them in any given opportunity. After the big success of my blender avocado crepes, I had to adjust the recipe to make waffles! And here they are, blender avocado waffles!
What you will need
- Avocado. The star of the show! Try to use a ripe avocado so the final batter is creamy. This is a great recipe to use your ripe avocado that is waiting for you in the counter!
- Flour. I used a mix of spelt and all purpose flour. But you can use only all purpose flour if this is what you have on hand.
- Eggs. I use pasture-raised organic eggs as I feel like the animals are getting treated better on the pastures. However, feel free to use what you have on hand.
- Milk. i used almond milk in this recipe but you can use any milk of your choice.
- Honey. If you are serving this to little below one year old, you should not add honey because it can cause botulism based on World’s Health Organization. Instead you can use maple syrup or just omit it.
- Pantry staples: oil and baking powder.
How I served it
Those blender avocado waffles are great warm straight out from the waffle iron or in room temperature. In Panos’ favorite bamboo Bubba Boo bamboo panda plate, I served for breakfast:
- Warm avocado waffles
- Sunny side up egg
- Cherry tomatoes
- Cucumber “ducks” cut with our cute little vegetable cutters
The same evening we went for a long walk in the forest and I packed a snack tray for both me and Panos to share. On our eco friendly stainless steel 5-compartment ecozoi lunchbox I packed:
- Avocado waffles in room temperature
- Carrot sticks
- Dried fruits
- Kiwi “hearts” cut with our vegetable cutters
- Cheese cubes
Tip: Ask your little ones how they want their fruits and veggies cut. Involving them in the process of preparing the food, encourages them to like it more. I would suggest to try cutting in sticks, cubes, fun shapes with vegetable cutters, etc.
“Make food fun, it totally worth it”
Tips and how to store it
- Cook the waffles over medium heat to make sure that they will cook evenly.
- Those blender avocado waffles store beautifully in the freezer. Place them flat on a freezer bag with parchment paper in between to avoid stacking together.
- You can store in the fridge for up to two days in an air tight container to have a quick snack ready when you need it.
