WHAT YOU’LL NEED

 

  • 1 really ripe plantain

INSTRUCTIONS

 

1). Blend. Put everything except the flour into a bowl and blend.
2). After blending, sieve in your self-raising flour. You want a thick mixture, a really
thick mixture, but not too thick.
3). Try one out. Brush some melted butter onto your waffle maker and make a waffle. If it is too thick, add more soy milk, if it is not thick enough, add more flour.
4). Repeat the waffle process until you use all of your flour mixture.

5). Serve and enjoy with your favorite vegan sauce or syrup. For an extra pack of
flavors, consider adding grilled apples tossed in cinnamon, brown sugar and butter.
6). Add lemon slices/wedge [optional].
