If you like almonds, you'll love these waffles! Amped up by almonds three different ways - almond flour, almond extract, and toasty almonds sprinkled along the top - they'll make anyone almond-lover nutty for breakfast.
1/2cupsliced raw almonds
1 1/4cupsall-purpose flour
1/2cupunsalted butter, melted1 stick
Spread the sliced almonds on a cookie sheet, and toast 325 degrees for about 5 minutes, stirring once, until they begin to get golden. Remove and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, almond flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and almond extract.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and give it a few quick whisks just until it's all incorporated.
Heat your waffle iron and brush with a little vegetable oil. Pour batter into the waffle iron according to the instructions for your particular iron. Ours takes just under a half cup of batter per waffle.
Cook for a shorter time for softer waffles, longer if you like waffles with a nice little crunch.
Top with butter and maple syrup and sprinkled with a few roasted, sliced almonds. And enjoy!
