HI friends! It’s been a while. My apologies for that, I hope you feel I haven’t abandon you. We’re at the start of a fresh new season over here in our little “Team Lee” world. Which I’ve been talking a lot about on Instagram. I have also taken the plunge on going FULL TIME on, developing recipes, photographing, blogging, running this little business and diving into Culinary School. Whoosh that sounds like a lot but it's the best kind of BUSY I’ve had in a LONG TIME. The kind where you are tired but have SO MUCH energy. Which I really believe is from following your heart and not your head, being align to your universal path. Anyone with me?
One of the recipes I have been working on is Double Chocolate GF Vegan Waffles. (my sister advises I work on the name) Until, that happens we'll stick with it. When I made these waffles the first time, it was a Sunday morning, I was half asleep still sipping on coffee to wake me up. I nailed the recipe. Which was a miracle. But then when I went to make them later in the week I BOTCHED them because I didn’t trust the recipe I wrote down. So silly really. I'm remembering that going with your GUT is always a good idea! Recipe testing takes time, and I appreciate you waiting ever so patiently while I figured it all out!
NOW, LETS GO COOK!

3.On low heat melt your oil, add in the the sugar, vanilla and chocolate powder. Transfer to a small bowl and whisk until combine.
4. Mix in the almond milk so the milk slightly warms.
5. With a wooden spoon combine wet + dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. If the mix looks dry add 1 tablespoon of almond milk, or if looks wet add a 1 tablespoon of gf rice flour. Then add in the chocolate chips. Mix.
6. Preheat your waffle maker. Cook the waffles according to your makers directions.
TIP: Put the oven on warm and place the waffles that have finished cooking in the oven to stay warm while I cook the rest! Finally, serve with whipped cream and berries! Enjoy.
