Gluten-free maca-oat waffles



Step 1

In a small bowl, whisk together the oat flour, maca, baking powder, and ¼ teaspoon salt to combine.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, egg yolks, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.

Step 3

Preheat waffle iron to high. In a separate medium bowl, using a hand mixer, beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold whites into batter until just combined.

Step 4

When the iron is hot, brush it with melted butter. Then, pour half the batter into the waffle iron and cook until lightly golden, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining batter.

Step 5

Top each waffle with half the banana slices, cacao nibs, and a drizzle of melted chocolate. Serve with additional maple syrup, if desired.
