Happy Friday Luvs!!!
We were playing in the kitchen a few days ago and created something brand new. Well, at least we think it is brand new as we have never really seen it before.
We were creating another basic vegan waffle recipe to satisfy our late afternoon hunger one day and created something we call muffle.
What is a muffle?
To be short it is something we just made up for a name to call this recipe.
Because we made it as a waffle shape but it was really dense and rich more like a muffin. So, we were playing around with what to call this new discovery. And since we are just so clever we came up with the name muffle — combining muffin with waffle to get muffle.
We feel it best describes this vegan recipe.
Now if you google muffle you will find off wikipedia calling it a muffle furnace, obviously that is not what this recipe is. Muffle is also know as a wrap or cover for warmth. Again does not describe our recipe, but we think you get the idea of why we called it a muffle.
Muffle recipe (muffin +waffle)
prep time – 5 minutes
bake time – varies depending on waffle maker
1/3 cup brown rice protein powder (may use any protein powder of your liking or could use almond meal)
1/3 cup flax meal (may use chia seeds, just note it might provide a different chew)
1 tablespoon coconut oil, liquid
10 drops liquid stevia (or could use 1-2 tbsp of sweetener of choice)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (helps with ‘lifting’ the recipe)
1/2 teaspoon cardamom (optional)
1/4 cup water (or could use milk or non-dairy milk of choice)
Place your protein powder (or nut meal) with flax meal, baking soda, baking powder, and cardamom in a bowl. Mix together.
Next add in your stevia, apple cider vinegar, and coconut oil.
End with adding in your water. You may more or less water depending on what protein powder or flour you use!
*Note: Our batter was really thick (we feel a thick batter does best for our vegan recipes). You can play around with the liquids to find what you like best!
Place your batter in your waffle maker and bake according to waffle maker instructions.
If you do not have a waffle maker, you may make this as muffins or try as a pancake.
But you can call it a muffin waffle if you like that better. Either way it is a simple, basic recipe made from just a few ingredients.
Now onto the best part….FROSTING!
We topped our muffle with a chocolate ‘frosting‘.
We do this kind of chocolate frosting a lot. We normally mix coconut oil with cocoa powder and a little stevia for our basic frosting. This time we used a coconut creamer instead of coconut oil. And it still came out great. Just add in your oil or creamer slowly, we like our frosting on the thick side, feel free to add in more liquid if you want a thinner frosting. There is no right or wrong here, just do what you feel like or what you have on hand!
A healthy start to your day!
Have a wonderful Friday…we got a wedding to attend to this weekend, and it just so happens to be at a winery. oh darn
