2 ½ cups cold water, divided
2 cups rolled oats
½ cup raw cashews
2-4 Medjool dates, pitted (or 1 tablespoon agave nectar)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
In a high-speed blender, blend 1 cup of water with the cashews until smooth.
Then, add the pitted dates, salt, and vanilla extract and blend until smooth.
Add the rolled oats and the remaining 1 ½ cup of water, and blend until smooth.
Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes before making the first waffle.
Lightly spray PAM or olive oil on the surface of a heated waffle iron and then pour in ⅙ of the mixture.
Bake until the waffle is golden to dark brown, approximately 5 minutes.
Note: due to the ingredients in the batter, each waffle may take a minute or two longer than usual to cook.
Repeat for all 6 waffles and enjoy with optional toppings.
Optional toppings: almond butter, fresh berries, sliced bananas, maple syrup
Ready in about 45 minutes
Makes 6 waffles
