Guilt Free Banana Flaxseed Waffles with Creamy Halva Spread

Print

Banana waffles with quick halva spread – this is a really great breakfast. Waffles are full of goodness – I used buckwheat flour, oat flour and ground flaxseed. They are sweetened with bananas, have a bit of spice in a form of cinnamon. They are a real treat.

And they will keep in the fridge for a few days so they can be enjoyed toasted the next day. YUM!

And the quick halva, it’s just divine. If you tried real halva before it’s nutty, sweet, totally decadent and absolutely delicious.

Halva is made from sesame seeds and sugar. So I used tahini and dates. Halva is usualy solid, in a block form. I opted for a spread consistency. I wanted the taste of halva, that nutty sweetness and I have to say, this quick version will give you a halva experience. But without the processed sugar, or a lot of fiddling to make it.

The combo of waffles with the halva spread plus the raspberries is just what is needed when you are after a bit of sweet comfort in the morning. And it’s clean and healthy. So enjoy guilt free.

Further Food Commentary:

With a significant amount of fiber, buckwheat flour has been found to slow down the rate of glucose absorption after meals. Additionally, it is a source of protein and calcium. Described as having an 'assertive' flavor, grab some buckwheat for quick, yeast breads. It's also a great substitution for any recipe that calls for regular flour, with 1/2 the amount needed in buckwheat.
