Day 3 – Three Ingredient Mochi Waffles
Welcome to Day 3 of our 15-day series through my collection of easy but healthy recipes! Today, I’m thrilled to introduce you to a delightful and easy-to-make treat: 3-Ingredient Mochi Waffles.
Not only are these waffles incredibly tasty, but they also boast a healthy twist that will keep your taste buds and body happy. Plus, if waffles aren’t your thing, we’ve got you covered with a pancake option too. So, let’s dive right in and explore the magic of these fantastic mochi waffles and the reasons why I love them so much.
Why Mochi Waffles are the BEST
Mochi waffles have been gaining popularity for their unique texture and incredible taste. The secret behind their success lies in the addition of glutinous rice flour, also known as mochiko flour, which gives the waffles a chewy and slightly sticky texture, similar to traditional Japanese mochi. This texture adds an incredible twist to the standard waffle experience and makes every bite a memorable one!
Not only are these waffles a joy to eat, but they are also incredibly versatile. You can experiment with different toppings and sauces to suit your taste preferences. Today, I’ll be making my delicious mochi waffles with a hot berry compote that literally takes 1 minute to make with no pots or pans.
💪 DAY 3 of 15 – HEALTHY RECIPES This 3-INGREDIENT mochi waffles are not only healthy but so delicious 🧇💜 You can totally make pancakes with this batter instead so totally up to you! Also the glutinous flour is also optional if you don’t have that at home 👌 🌟 Follow @eatingwithkirby and join my channel (in bio) to get the recipe on all 15 DAYS of my Easy Healthy Recipes 🌟 ✨ RECIPE: • 1 cup of frozen berries (I get mine from @costco) • 1 tbsp maple syrup or agave • 2 tsp chia seeds • 1 ripe banana • 2 eggs • 1/4 cup glutinous rice flour (mochiko flour) In a medium bowl, mash banana with a fork until it’s free of lumps. Add two eggs and glutinous rice flour and whisk together. In an oiled waffle pan, add the batter. The batter expands so make sure to allow for room in the waffle maker! To make pancakes instead, use a hot skillet. Take it out once the waffles are golden brown. In a small microwaveable bowl, microwave the berries in 30 second increments until hot. Usually takes about 1 min – 1 min 30 seconds. Add in maple syrup and chia seeds and mix well. Spoon the berry mixture on top of the waffle and top with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt and cocoa nibs for extra protein and health! 💪😎 Enjoy! 💕 #twoingredientpancakes #twoingredientwaffles #easyrecipe #healthyrecipe #15daysofhealthyrecipes #lowcarb #glutenfreerecipe

3 Ingredient Mochi Waffles
- 1 banana riper the better
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup glutinous rice flour aka mochiko flour
- 1 cup frozen berries I use the mixed berries from Costco
- 1 tbsp maple syrup or agave
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp plain greek yogurt optional
- 1 tsp cocoa nibs optional
- In a medium-sized bowl, mash the ripe banana with a fork until it's smooth and free of lumps. Add the two eggs and the glutinous rice flour to the bowl, and whisk all the ingredients together until you have a smooth batter.
- Preheat your waffle maker and lightly oil it to prevent sticking. If you prefer pancakes, you can use a hot skillet instead.
- Pour the batter into the waffle maker, making sure to leave some space for expansion. Close the waffle maker and allow the magic to happen. Once the waffles turn a beautiful golden brown, they are ready to be taken out.
- For the berry compote, take a small microwaveable bowl and add the frozen berries to it. Microwave the berries in 30-second intervals until they become hot and slightly mushy. This usually takes about 1 to 1.5 minutes. Now, stir in the maple syrup or agave and chia seeds, mixing everything together to create a delightful berry compote.
- To serve, place the mochi waffles on a plate, and generously spoon the warm berry compote over them. For an extra protein boost and creamy goodness, add a dollop of plain Greek yogurt on top. Finally, sprinkle some cocoa nibs over the waffles for that irresistible touch of chocolate and crunch.
With just a handful of ingredients, you can whip up this delightful treat for breakfast, brunch, or even a special dessert. The fusion of the chewy mochi texture and the sweet-tart berry compote is simply divine. Plus, it’s a fantastic way to sneak in some added nutrition from chia seeds and Greek yogurt.
Whether you’re a waffle enthusiast or a pancake aficionado, this recipe is a must-try!
Also, the waffle maker I use is the Oster Belgian Waffle Maker from Amazon! It is relatively inexpensive and works really well! I highly recommend it. ??
