I used my raw pancake recipie to make waffles!
thought that I would share.
Disassemble your waffle iron (from the SAD days! and take the waffle grids and put them on your counter. If you don't own one, it's worth the investment.
Fill them with your batter.
Place them in your dehydrator, dry until you can flip them over. Dry until desired consistency!
These are SO good... better then the real thing, IMO.
if the waffles stick, try using your favorite raw oil on the grids. I used coconut.
THAT IS THE COOLEST!! Any pix?
Ooooh yes! Pictures would be REALLY ni-iiiice! Come on Wendee, entice us! I sent you an email too - an when you read it, think of these words - "told ya"!
What raw pancake recipe do you have?
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
WOW; I 'll have to take another one of my SAD cooking/baking things out of storage: Rawsome; Would you post recipe? Please? Joz

I'm gonna try this!
Tizra, let me know how you like them.....and thanks for finding that link....I knew it was out there somewhere, LOL!
They were delish as pancakes... so I thought since I was just craving waffles I would come up with a way some how some way to make them, and I did! ;) The only thing is you may want to make the batter thicker, just experiment.
hope you like them
That sounds heavenly, Wendee, thanks for sharing!
And to think that my mother's ancient cast iron, 50 lb. waffle iron has been gathering dust & cobwebs up in my storage attic, unused, for years at this point. All along I've been thinking, Hmm. . what should I do with that thing?"

This post gave me a chuckle! My stepson just left the smell of waffles in the air, and that left me with a "I must try and recreate some waffles in raw form!". Was thinking of disassembling my waffle iron.
So I thought I'd do a search in case there are some waffle recipes out there, and voila, came up with this post! Imagine, Wendee had thought of rearranging her waffle iron as well, lol!
Not sure if I want to use the banana recipe, but I'll come up with something, and I'll post my successes and learning experiences here!
I did it! My family and I just had waffles with agave syrup for breakfast this morning!
They are wonderful! I made them last night and dehydrated them all night! One batch came out a bit thicker, so I am still dehydrating them, since like my husband just said, they are good, but they remind him a bit of not all the way cooked through waffles. So with a bit more dehydrating they'll be more non doughey, like my first batch.
Here's the recipe I created:
1/2 cup cashews
3/4 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup cubed squash
2 tsp sunflower oil
4 soaked dates
2 T golden flax seeds, ground
pinch of salt
Process nuts, squash, soaked dates, and sunflower oil in a food processor until dough like. Mix in ground flax seeds, vanilla and salt. Try not to eat the dough already!
I sprayed the waffle iron with non stick oil, since I still have to get a little brush to brush on some oil (next time). Spread the dough on both sides of waffle iron. Try not to make it too thick, otherwise they'll take longer to get a bit of a crispy consistency, which I liked.
I dehydrated them for two hours or so, until I was able to peel them out of the waffle iron (slowly with the tip of a knife I loosed them one by one).
Then I just dehydrated them for about 9 hours overnight. But the thicker ones are still dehydrating .... well, the thicker one, since only one is left now, lol.

I guess I have to figure out how to take apart a waffle iron? How hard is that? I don't even know, if I still have one.
