Date waffles with cherry honey & almond cream

Preparation of waffles:

Mix the spelt flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, citrus zest to taste, spices and sea salt in a bowl.

Place the dates together with the eggs, almond drink, yogurt, nut butter and coconut oil in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

Add the flour mixture at low speed and mix just until all the ingredients are just combined.

Leave the batter to rest for 5-10 minutes before baking.

Preheat the waffle iron to a medium temperature, grease lightly if necessary, add the batter in batches and bake one waffle at a time until lightly browned.


Whip the cream with a hand mixer, toast the flaked almonds in a frying pan, place the waffles on plates, spread a dollop of cream on top, drizzle 1 tbsp of cherry honey over each, dust with flaked almonds and, if desired, powdered snow and serve.
