Plantain Waffles

I’ve been pushing the  #Plantain #Chocolate competition for the #ounjegiveaway. So I’ve been sharing easy ways to  incorporate plantain and chocolate. Plantain waffle is an old recipe I shared last year. This is a different take on the earlier  RECIPE 

Plantain Waffle

Recipe 

(Serves 5)

  • 4 large ripe plantains
  • 20g Butter
  •  2 cups Yogurt 
  • 1 cup flour 
  • 1/8 tsp Baking powder
  •  1/8 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/8 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tbsp *Vanilla extract 
  • *Cooking spray or oil to coat your waffle iron.

Procedure

▪     In a blender,  blend the plantain and all the other ingredients to a smooth  paste.

▪    Spray the waffle iron with some cooking spray or use a brush to apply oil on the iron to prevent the batter from sticking to the plates. (Use the waffle iron according to manufacturers instructions)

▪    Cook till waffle iron indicator says it’s done.

Waffle Omelette

I was inspired to do this yesterday after I saw a recipe shared on one of the fitness groups I belong. The author used a sandwich toaster to make what she call Egg Sandwich. I tweaked her recipe a little and used a waffle maker to make this.

For those people on a protein diet,  this is perfect for you.

You can use a sandwich toaster instead of the waffle iron.
