With April quickly coming to a close, I can’t help but think about all the deliciousness that I have to prep for when it comes to the Summer weather and good eats!

Since the Summer is all about explore (for some of us), while others of us spend the season hardly in the kitchen (for obvious reasons of course—too much heat! Haha), I’m definitely planning for some quick and easy recipes that will allow us to remain on our healthy regimen, regardless of time or heat wave.

But of course, Mother’s Day is just around the corner as well, so thinking of a few beautiful dishes to celebrate is a MUST! Don’t you think?

OK, now back to this recipe—If you’ve been an avid reader of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you’ll know that I’ve had my fair share of SunButter flavored recipes and have fallen in complete love with this interestingly tasty, nutty butter.

If you aren’t aware, SunButter is a great alternative to Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, or any other Nut Butter rather. Specifically awesome for those who are allergic to specific nuts, SunButter is a healthy, new way to enjoy foods!

If you’ve been following this blog for some time, then you’ll know that I am a HUGE believer in using the best, most quality ingredients, which is the key to eating healthier.

Like many of my faves and go-to’s like Bob Red Mill’s, Sugar in the Raw, Enjoy Life Products, Purely Elizabeth, Justin’s, and more; SunButter is one of great quality, has no GMOs, vegan, gluten-free, and so GOOD!

Plus, SunButter is free from the top 8 allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, milk, eggs, wheat, fish, and crustacean shellfish.

I definitely recommend purchasing a jar or two on their website or a major retailer like Amazon. Don’t worry–you can always see Where To Buy SunButter.

And for those of you who are wondering, “What can I use SunButter on, anyway?”. Whelp, don’t be dismayed!

This butter (although bold in taste) pairs PERFECTLY with a lot of things. Let’s take these Delicious Vegan Sunflower Butter Cinnamon Rolls for instance. Yes, that’s right. I used SunButter in these cinnamon rolls and they were super AHMAZING!

How about these Sweet Potato SunButter Pancakes + Salted SunButter Caramel? They are a uniquely delicious way to enjoy breakfast. Completely fluffy, dairy-free, and vegan; these pancakes are truly irresistible with a nice kick of nutty, sweet flavors. Made in just a few short steps and under 30 minutes.

Then of course, there is one of our most popular SunButter recipes—SunButter Chocolate Chip Quinoa Banana Bread, which is truly something special. It’s a healthy way to enjoy subtle sweet flavors of banana and chocolate chips, along with a good dose of protein from a versatile grain during any given morning or evening indulgence.

Trust me, the list goes on! Curious? Whelp, you can always take a quick peek at our SunButter Archives for some awesome inspiration! Swoon!!

OK, let’s dig right into this recipe!

  1. Preheat your waffle maker to desired setting–medium-high heat worked for me!
  2. In a measuring cup or small bowl, add the Almond milk and apple cider vinegar, whisking them together and letting it sit for 5 minutes or so.
  3. Now, add the ingredients to your blender, ensuring that all WET INGREDIENTS (including milk-apple cider vinegar mixture) are placed on the BOTTOM and then the DRY INGREDIENTS on TOP. NOTE: Putting the ingredients in this order allows everything to blend well and become nice and smooth.
  4. Blend on high speed using a high-powered blender for a few seconds (15-20 to be exact!) until batter is smooth.
  5. Next, spoon batter into your waffle maker (1/4 cup approximately) and cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions.
  6. Once each waffle completes, add to a baking sheet and place them in the oven on the lowest setting (to keep them warm). Repeat until all waffles are made.
  7. To serve–stack waffles (whole or cut), top with sliced strawberries (optional), a dollop of SunButter, and drizzle with maple syrup.
  8. Bon appetite!

Tips & Tricks

SUNBUTTER OPTIONS: I chose to use the Creamy SunButter, however, you can feel free to use the Crunchy, Sugar-Free, or any other flavor of SunButter desired.
OATS: Ensure that your oats are certified GF (Gluten-Free). I used Thick Rolled Oats, but you can also use Old Fashion if preferred.
MILK: You can use any non-dairy milk for this recipe. I love using Califia Farm’s Oats + Roasted Almonds Milk, however, you can use Soy, regular Almond, Macadamia, Coconut, etc.
STORAGE: Leftovers can be tightly sealed in a zip loc bag (once fully cooled) and either refrigerated for a few days or frozen for up to 2 months. To serve, reheat waffles in the oven on 400 degrees for a few minutes until warmed through.
REGULAR WAFFLES: For standard waffles (Non-Belgian style), this recipe will make more than 6 waffles.
