I like to focus on adding more nutrition to the foods I make – It’s a hell of a lot more fun than taking away the “unhealthy” bits. I think that is what people call elevated. To elevate these homemade toaster waffles, I added 1 cup of Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts and used sprouted spelt flour (<- my current favorite flour!).
Make a large batch of these waffles and freeze them. When ready to eat, reheat them in your toaster and you are ready to roll. I don’t add sugar to the waffles to keep them more neutral in flavor – use them for a sweet breakfast or for savory waffles.
WHAT ARE HEMP SEEDS?
Shelling the hemp seed produces the most nutritious and tender part of the seed, the heart. The hemp hearts contain omegas 3 and 6 and twice the amount of protein compared to flax or chia. Hemp hearts taste great, are easy to use, and nutritious too! There’s no need to grind or cook hemp hearts, simply sprinkle them on salads, pasta, cereal, or yogurt or blend them into smoothies. Add a few spoonful to baking, chili, soup, or almost any cooking – savory or sweet.
Whenever possible, try sourcing your ingredients organic, local, and fair-trade. Or do your research and find out the sourcing of all your ingredients to make sure they are coming from people you trust, that are making the ingredients with the same values that are important to you.
