  • 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

  2. Make well in middle and add milk, eggs and vanilla essence
  3. Using electric beaters mix for 30 seconds on low to combine then 2 mins on high (scrape edges of bowl as needed)
  4. In a separate microwave-proof bowl put coconut oil, maple syrup (or honey) and cocoa

  7. Heat waffle maker as per instructions and cook according to your machine


Make these into pancakes if you don’t have a waffle maker by heating a little olive oil in a pan, adding a spoonful of mixture and flipping when bubbles form.

Serve with fruit and yoghurt, as it is already sweet I don’t add more syrup.
