- Mix the flour, baking powder and lucuma together in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix the chia eggs and vanilla bean paste together. Add the almond milk a little at a time, stirring well, until it has combined with the chia mix.
- Create a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and slowly begin to pour in the chia mix, stirring constantly to form a batter. Be careful not to mix the batter any more than necessary – it doesn’t need to be completely smooth. Now add the melted butter and gently mix in.
- Set the batter aside for ten minutes.
- In the meantime, add the spiralised apple, cinnamon and water into a large pan. Heat over a medium high heat and simmer for ten minutes until the apples are soft.
- Set the waffle maker to heat up.
- Gently mix the apples into the waffle batter and scoop around a quarter (depending on the size of your waffle maker) of the mix onto the iron. Press and cook according to your machine and preference (I chose a medium setting).
- Once cooked and golden brown, remove the waffle from the machine and place on a piece of kitchen paper to prevent it becoming soggy.
- Repeat the process for each waffle.
- Serve with plant-based honey, syrup or a caramel sauce.
