Waffles: this word summons images of beautiful breakfasts with piles of whipped cream, fresh maple syrup, and bright berries. But chickpeas? Those probably aren't at the top of the word-association list (and, okay, maybe not even in the top twenty).
However, chickpeas actually make an excellent base for vegan and gluten-free waffles! This recipe combines this legume with banana, psyllium husk powder, flax egg, and almond milk to create a stack that'll do more than just satisfy your carb cravings—they'll keep you full through lunchtime!
This chickpea-based breakfast offers a great way to pack in the protein, and they crisp up really nicely in a waffle maker!
Pro Tip: You can get elaborate with your toppings! Serve these waffles with vegan butter, your favorite non-dairy whipped cream, and fresh fruit for a gorgeous breakfast plate.
