Do you like waffles? Yeah I like waffles!

My life is pretty exciting at the moment.
It involves things like an animal shaped waffle iron and a new kitchen with natural light that makes nice photos at night time.

Like seriously, what more could you want?

Four months ago I moved to the upstairs apartment in my family home. I cannot express how much it has changed my life and my mindset. Just having that bit more personal space and independence has given me the space I need to grow and flourish. I know it's cliché but a change really is as good as a rest.

I've also been listening to a lot of TED talks recently. I think I'm a TED junkie at this point. They're incredibly interesting and entertaining. It's important for information to be easily accessible and bitesize otherwise your mind won't properly absorb it. To be honest I think that's where school falls back. It just doesn't make learning as engaging as it could be. I would compare the efficiency of the education system to eating really healthily yet not chewing your food. Unless your food is easy to process your body just won't absorb the nutrients.

So what have I learnt from writing this post? Chew my food. And listen to more TED talks. And definitely eat more waffles.

Now I will boldly proclaim that these are the best waffles ever and they're only my first try. Sometimes you just hit gold without even trying. No biggee ;) 

But you don't get to eat waffles unless you watch your education You Tube videos. So here's my favourite to date.

The best waffles ever.

  • 1/2 cup gram flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp xlylitol
  • 3 tsp stevia
  • tbsp cinnamon
  • tsp salt (scant)
  • 1 cup soya milk
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • peanut syrup
  • about 3-4 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1-2 tbsp honey
  • sachet vanilla stevia
  • soya milk to thin out
  •  rasberries, coconut and goji berries to serve

Simply blend all the waffle ingredients in your food processor and make them in your waffle iron. Mix up the peanut sauce ingredients in a bowl. Bish bash bam blam. Serve. Devour. Swoon.
