strawberriesalmonds, maple syrup, dusting of icing sugar, to serve
Put all the dry ingredients in the Vitamix container and blitz in short bursts until you have a fine powder. Tip this into a large bowl.
Put all the wet ingredients in your blender container and blitz until well blended.
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ones and use a hand whisk to stir everything together until just combined. You will end up with a fairly thick batter. Set aside while the waffle maker heats up.
Preheat the waffle maker until the ready light indicator comes on and spray with a little cooking spray.
Pour enough batter to coat the centre of the waffle maker (about 1/2 cup) and then close. The batter should sizzle and will spread out as you close the machine. Cook for 4-6 minutes or until crisp. Repeat until you have used all of the batter.
Serve the waffles warm with a little maple syrup, sliced strawberries, a handful of chopped almonds or the toppings of your choice.
You can use soy milk instead of the buttermilk if you want to keep these dairy-free.
