During this current lockdown (and all of the previous lockdowns we've endured before) it's safe to say most of us have a lot of time on our hands. Though some of us have worked from home even before this pandemic and some are working from home when they can, I still find it harder to get out of bed in the mornings just lately, anyone else? 

So I'm pretty much using all this time to take things slower, appreciate the little things and just take each day as it comes and honestly, it's made me realise a lot of things. I know a lot of us are eating healthier in the new year, but if I want to have a slow morning and eat waffles or pancakes for breakfast, then why the hell not.

Today's recipe is in collaboration with St Lawrence Gold, using their maple syrup to create the most perfect fluffy waffles for a delicious breakfast! 


Makes: 6.  Prep Time: 10 mins.  Cook Time: 20 mins 

You will need - 

- 1 1/2 cups oat milk
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups self-raising flour
- pinch of salt
- 4 tbsp vegan butter, melted
- 2 tsp cinnamon


1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the oat milk and apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract. Set aside.

2. In a larger bowl, sieve the self-raising flour and add the salt and cinnamon. Pour the maple syrup and melted vegan butter (I melted mine in a mug in the microwave for 20 seconds) into the same bowl. Add the milk and apple cider mixture into the dry ingredients and mix everything together until fully combined. The mixture should be relatively thick and it's perfectly fine for there to be some lumps.

3. Turn on your waffle maker and allow it to heat up. Add about 1/2 cup of the mixture at a time. This should then make 6 waffles. Make sure you don't overfill the waffle maker as there needs to be room for the waffles to grow and expand. Keep an eye on the waffles, checking on them every now and again until they look and feel done. They should take around 10 minutes each, but each machine may vary so use your judgement.

4. Once the waffles have finished cooking and look golden, serve them up with some fresh fruit (vegan bacon would also be delicious!) and a drizzle of St Lawrence Gold maple syrup.

These are honestly such a delicious breakfast/brunch idea and they're something I don't eat often, so when I do it feels like such a treat. I love them!

What's your favourite breakfast?

Love Always,
