We made a chai waffle and the recipe is seen on So Delicious®’s e-book, “So Delightful: 50 Dairy-Free Recipes” which can be found online. I used a chai blend beverage (Blue Lotus Rooibos Masala Chai) for their e-book, but this post involves the use of ground chai powder (intended for beverages-to-go) for more dominant flavors, plus darker looking waffles. I made the Rooibos Masala Chai Waffles twice in a row and it was very tasty. If you are not a fan of sweet and spicy chai, use a chai beverage (liquid) for a milder flavor. The Rooibos Masala Chai Waffles is full of flavor and spices, and perfect for any day.
For the coconut milk and yogurt, I used So Delicious® Dairy Free Original coconut milk and So Delicious® Plain Cultured coconut milk yogurt.
Rooibos Masala Chai Waffles
Yield: 6 servings
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 6 ounces coconut milk yogurt
- ¾ cup coconut milk
- ⅓ cup plus 4 tablespoons Blue Lotus Rooibos Masala Chai
- ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon water
- ⅓ cup coconut oil
- Spray oil for the waffle iron
- Organic Powdered Sugar for garnish
- Raw agave syrup for garnish
Mix all the dry ingredients together well with a whisk. In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together. Combine wet and dry. Leave in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
When ready to cook, preheat the waffle iron. Spray both surfaces of your waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour ½ cup batter onto the bottom surface and close the lid. Cook until the waffle iron’s indicator light shows that cooking is complete, or until no more steam comes out. The finished waffle should be golden brown and crispy.
Repeats Steps 2,3 and 4 for as many waffles as you wish to make.
