Delicious Gluten-Free Millet Waffles

Ingredients:

½ cup organic non-GMO soaked soybeans

1 ½ cups of pineapple juice

5 tablespoons of honey

¾ cup of certified gluten-free, regular oats

¾ cup of certified, gluten-free, uncooked millet

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring

1 teaspoon maple flavoring, optional

1 teaspoon pineapple flavoring, optional

½ teaspoon coriander

½ teaspoon cardamom, optional

1/8 cup coconut

A small amount of sesame seeds

Directions:

Prepare the waffle iron by preheating it and brushing with oil, if needed, right before pouring on batter.

Blend all ingredients together well.

When waffle iron is hot, sprinkle sesame seeds on the bottom surface. They add flavor and reduce the chances of waffles sticking.

Pour batter over seeds and sprinkle more seeds on top of batter.

Close lid and bake until done.

Delicious Homemade Granola

Dry Ingredients:

6 cups organic rolled oats

1 cup wheat germ

1 cup coconut

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup nuts

Ingredients for blending:

½ cup cold-pressed oil

½ cup warm water

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/3 cup organic brown sugar or whole cane sugar

Directions:

Mix dry ingredients in large bowl:

Blend: oil, warm water, vanilla, and organic brown sugar

Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix well by rubbing oats between hands. Do not squeeze or “knead” the ingredients but try to evenly coat the oats with the liquid. Food-handling gloves help!

Spread the mixture out evenly onto a large baking sheet. You may need 2 baking sheets if the ingredients are too thick on one sheet. Do not pack it down but try to keep it “light and airy”.

Bake at 250 F. degrees until brown (about 1 ½ to 2 hours). Check to see if it is browning evenly. It may need stirring.

Note: If finished granola is hard and tough, there was too much water added. You want the clumps to break apart easily but not be dry and powdery. The right temperature is important so experiment with longer, slower cooking if you aren’t satisfied with the final product.
