Cider Citrus Waffles

Cider Citrus Waffles

I hate being hungover but I LOVE LESLIE KNOPE AND SHE LOVES WAFFLES AND IPSO FACTO I LOVE WAFFLES (just experienced such intensity of excitement that that was just as exhausting typing as it was reading.) Anyways, I just bought that hugely anti-inflammatory Fire Cider and I recently read that citrus is good for a liver cleanse, which birthed this creation.  Waffles that are gluten free, glutton free, delicious, anti-inflammatory, and liver cleansing. And paired with fiber packed peach(ia) seed jam. Goodbye hangover. Hello happiness.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp fire cider
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  •  1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 3/4 cups gluten free flour
  • 1 tbsp frozen concentrated orange juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch sea salt

Peach Chia Seed Jam

  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Recipe:

Jam: Put everything in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Then place in fridge while the waffles are baking.

Waffles: Mix everything together, spray the waffle maker, and get it going.

Superfood Spotlight

Fire cider is a combination of immune boosting herbs, roots, and peels steeped in vinegar. It’s reported to be anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, decongestant, and circulation boosting as well. With ingredients including: horseradish, hot peppers, turmeric, onions, garlic, ginger, and apple cider vinegar, it supports your immune system, respiratory system, and digestive system. It’s also been reported to have effects similar to coffee in terms of eye-opening stimulation. Chia seeds are a great source of fiber and omega-3s, making you happily satiated. Oats are also packed with fiber to avoid sugar cravings later on throughout the day. Overall, this meal is satisfying, mood and immune boosting, and anti-flammatory: the perfect hangover treat.
