Tonight at the youth group I help lead, we are talking about the fruit of the Holy Spirit that is patience. This art that our Lord is perfect in is something only He, therefore, can administer perfectly through us.
I thought about patience this morning when I went to make waffles for breakfast.
Having seen what I thought was a waffle maker in the back of a cupboard at my place, I thought this was an appliance of Beth’s. When I took it out this morning, I realized it was actually a sandwich press. Bahahaha.
Now excited about waffles, though, I decided to whip up a recipe on the spot and try putting the batter in the triangle indents in the sandwich press. And I came up with these little triangles!
This recipe will probably yield one or two big waffles if you make them in a real waffle maker. But, if you have a sandwich press, I suggest giving this a try. These triangles were too much fun.
(Also, I recognize that this is a very minor example of patience coming in to play😉)
I also made these today with half oat flour and half white flour but I’m gonna write the recipe with just white flour.
1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 T coconut yogurt (or regular yogurt)
2 T vanilla almond milk (or any milk)
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsps sugar
1/2 T creamy peanut butter, melted
1. Preheat waffle iron (or sandwich press!) In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
2. In separate bowl, mix yogurt, milk, egg, lemon juice, sugar, and peanut butter.
3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined; don’t over mix.
4. Pour about half the batter onto waffle maker and close. Cook 2-3 minutes only for perfect, floppy waffles; more if you prefer a hard, crunchy waffle. Continue with remaining batter.
5. Serve with desired toppings– I had the triangles with coconut yogurt, sliced apple and banana, and cacao nibs, and they were delicious!
