Butter Pecan Waffles

Yes, you read that right. Butter pecan waffles. This is a variation of my recipe for Barley and Oat Waffles with Apple Pecan Topping. Everything is the same except the topping. BTW, this topping is super sweet (and delicious).

These waffles are a world apart from your typical white-flour-and-cream concoctions. They have no wheat, eggs, milk, or soy, but they do have a good balance of protein and fiber. Adapted from an Arrowhead Mills recipe, this recipe works best with waffles and should be altered to make pancakes.*

Ingredients:

1 cup barley flour
1 cup oat flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 Tbsp. honey (or sugar, if necessary)
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups milk substitute
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Topping:

Pecans
Margarine
Maple syrup
Brown sugar

1. Place pecan halves or pieces in a small frying pan with a little margarine. Brown these on low heat, stirring frequently. Be careful; they will burn easily. Remove from heat and let cool.
2. Mix all the waffle ingredients together in a large bowl. Let it sit for a few minutes.
3. While batter is resting, roughly chop pecans.
4. Put 2-3 Tbsp margarine in the pan used to cook the pecans.
5. Melt margarine and add equal parts maple syrup and brown sugar. Cook until it is syrupy, stirring frequently, adding more sugar and syrup as desired. This need not be precise.
6. Return pecans to syrup mixture.
7. Meanwhile, cook waffles in a lightly oiled waffle iron.
8. Cook waffles until no more steam escapes from the waffle iron.
9. When everything is done, serve waffles topped with the butter pecan mixture.

*For pancakes, increase milk substitute to 2 cups.
