RAW FORCE is so much cooler than raw food*

Sorry, I just got back from a Grindhouse Double Feature at the New Beverly Cinema, CROCODILE and RAW FORCE. RAW FORCE was amazing. So amazing it made me hungry for brunch.

I’m a brunch guy. I’d eat brunch for every meal if I could. Cutting out eggs makes this more complicated. But the waffle conundrum has been unlocked. Of course you need a waffle maker, which looks like this:

Now mix this up and put it in there:

Waffle Batter:

  • 2 cups flour (I like to mix it up, so 1 cup whole wheat, 1 cup spelt in this case)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tsp coconut sugar (or maple, or date, or sweetener of choice)
  • 2 egg replacers (I like ground flax: 1 tbsp+3tbsp warm water/egg)
  • 1 1/2 cups warm oat milk (or flax, or soy or almond)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (although I think this makes it a little chewy)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix up your dry ingredients. Mix up your wet ingredients. Then mix them together and ladle into your heated waffle iron. Bam. Waffles. Like this:

Yes, that is pomegranate syrup in that bottle. No, I didn’t know it existed either.  Yes, I know it’s after midnight. No, waffles don’t care.

*Apologies to raw foodies. I’m sure your food is good. But RAW FORCE would still kick it in the face. Go Burbank Karate Club!
