Waffles! It sounds like a celebration, yes? Do You like it? What kind of is Your best? I personally haven’t got the best recipe, I like them all! Truly, eat them really occasionally, I don’t know why, but my hands falling down when I am thinking of making them, but not today 🙂
First of all, I want to explain how the idea of making waffles came to my head. We, my husband and I were watching funny dog compilation on Youtube and he was eating oat biscuits with Belgian chocolate chips. Of course, I act that it doesn’t bother me at all, but then I start think of what I missed since cut off gluten from my diet, starting from all takeaway vegan food and finishing delicious waffles, which last time I ate ages ago, so jump from sofa and ran to kitchen with no explanation.
After a while, I came back together with delicious smell of vanilla and huge plate of waffles. Topped with various berries and fruit plate looked so gorgeous and we took some pictures to share with You.

Probably You already noticed that my waffles is different shape than usually, but it is only because I have this really old school waffle pan, where You literally frying them like pancakes, and it has sort of hearty shape..? This pan is a gift from my granny, actually a give away, I remember this pan in her kitchen since I am on this earth! No one on that time knew what is vegan waffles, but now we can make some, shall we?

We must be satisfied while eating, surrounded by all good and positive feelings, no shame, no guilt, no worries.
