I’m gonna start off by plugging in mywaffle iron because you need to have anice hot wokif you’re gonna get a good waffle andyou don’t want to add it in too soon soI’m just gonna go ahead and plug mywaffle iron in if you plan on joining mealong with me go ahead and plug yours innow so it gets hot and don’t forget togrease it because if you don’t greaseit’s gonna stick and pull apart and it’sthe saddest thing that ever happens toyour waffles so let’s do it all rightso now that waffle iron is heating up sothe first thing that we’re gonna bedoing today is making oat milk fromscratch so I don’t know about you but Ihave no interest in going to the grocerystore right now I have no interest indealing with any of that crazy so I liketo be able to make my own stuff and ifyou feel the same way follow along withme and you’re never gonna need to go tothe store to buy oat milk or any otherkind of plant milk ever again here’s mypre-made oat milk I’ve got four cups ofwater here in this Vitamix so you don’tneed a Vitamix to do this you can do itin a ninja you can do it in a bullet youcan do it in a Cuisinart blender anykind of blender that you have will workand if you have a less strong blenderjust go ahead and soak those oatsovernight or at least for four hours incold water before doing it the hotterthe water you use the thicker yourproduct at the end so if you’re whatyou’re going for is more like a creamera little bit of warm water can actuallyhelp get that thick consistency but ifyou just want regular plant milk youwant cold to room-temperature waterfour cups water for every one cup oatsso here’s my oats here’s my four cups ofwater I’m going to add it in so you caneither add a date or a tablespoon ofmaple syrup a pinch of salt just toflavor it and season it the way that youlike if you want to get fancy with ityou can add a little vanilla extract -I’m just going to pop this into theblender[Music]and now I’ve got fresh oatmealthis is obviously a lot less than what Ijust made um good question Julian I’musing rolled oats rolled oats or quickoats quaker oats the standard oats thatyou would make oatmeal out of you can doit with steel-cut oats and Irish oatsbut you have to soak them a little bitlonger because there are thicker grainand you have to blend them a lot longertoo so flat oats rolled oats quick oatsQuaker Oats that’s what you’re reallylooking for here and of course if you’relooking for gluten-free options you haveto look specifically for gluten freeoats even though that’s a littlecounterintuitive oat milk put in anykind of container with a lid and yourfridge good for a week hey Jess thanksfor joining us and with that we can getstarted making our waffles anybody elseyou’re excited for chicken and wafflesor for pancakes don’t worry if you don’thave a waffle iron you can use the sameexact batter for pancakes that you canfor waffle so if you’ve ever orderedwaffles at a restaurant you may bewondering what’s the big deal well thebig deal is it takes a really long timeto do waffles and most people only haveone waffle iron at home so if you’regonna be making waffles for yourself andsomeone else or for your whole familyusing the same batter to make pancakesand waffles at the same time so thateverybody can eat together or morequickly is a lifesaver and then alsosome people have preferences Ipersonally don’t understand people whoprefer pancakes to waffles I like themboth but waffles are waffles you hear meyeah so let’s switch over to the viewand let’s start mixing these things upand we’ll get cookin feel free to dropyour questions in the comments I may notget to them as I’m cooking but I will beable to answer them at the end I’m gonnastick around and eat with you and answeryour questions so here we go over hereso this is what it’s all about todayguys check out i’m gonna i hate changingthe camera view on this do you know thatyeah so look at this that is a buckwheatwaffle with Dairy Foods chicken and afrozen strawberry I keep frozen berriesall year round which is great for a timelike this in a crisis so I just gavethem a little bit of a thaw let themdrain out in the sink because they willget wet slice it up and put it right onthere and this is the same batter makingpancakes I made some silverdollarpancakes that I could get some fatstacks this is my kind of fat stackshere guys pancake stacks with morefrozen berries in the mix so same battermix once eat twice pancakes and waffleshere we go all right guys I’m gonna movethis delicious stuff out of the way andget to eat it latermmm one let’s look alright so a reallyimportant cooking skill here is to haveall your stuff ready in advance so I’vegot my half a cup of buckwheat flourright here I’ve got my half a teaspoonof baking soda here I’ve got my quartercup of peanut butter you can use almondbutter cashew butter or any kind of nutbutter you could even do tahini which Ithink would be kind of an amazingcombination here too depending onallergies preferences or just what youhave on hand I’ve got the fresh mint oatmilk I showed you guys how to make atthe beginning of this video Papa Papacomment if you need a refresher on thatgot my maple syrup which is just as goodin the mix as it is after and I’ll showyou I keep my baking soda in a ziplockbag keeps it fresher in the fridge andkeeps it from absorbing smells so thetotal ingredients here we have a halfcup of buckwheat flour 1/4 cup of peanutbutter1/2 cup oat milk + 2 tablespoons oatmilk and just keep a little bit more onthe side to make sure your batter is wetand slippery I already have my waffleiron heating up I’m going to be using 1teaspoon apple cider vinegar 2tablespoons of maple syrup and it’s upto you whether you want to add a pinchof cinnamon so here we go this is mehoping everybody can see okay alrighthere we go right in the bowlfirst things first everybody add yourmilk to the bowl then we’re gonna takethat 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegarand we’re going to be making kind offlake of buttermilk here which asidefrom adding a really great dimension offlavor it’s gonna help that baking sodato give you a lighter fluffier textureand your waffle and your pancake alightso give them a second to curdle up andthen the next thing we’re going to addright in is the maple syrupso that’s one tablespoon maple syrup twotablespoons maple syrup now you can usewhatever sweetener you want or you canskip this step entirely date syrup wouldbe fine agave would be fine simple syrupwould be fine[Music]trust your gut on this one so give it agood mix and the next thing that we’regonna do is we’re going to add thatpeanut butter right in now I am notafraid to use my fingers here you wantto get all this peanut butter and to geta good measurement on peanut butter youare gonna want to use a spoon to fill upyour measuring cups anything more thanthat you risk having a ton of extracoming along for the ride and that couldreally throw it off I’m not going to beusing any oil in this batch except togrease my pots and pans on my waffleiron so this is the fat in the recipeand I am gonna lick my fingers and thenwash my hands because we ought to besupporting to have it say right[Music]alright so in there so far we have halfcup plus 2 tablespoons oat milk 1teaspoon apple cider vinegar 2tablespoons of maple syrup and 1/4 cupof peanut butter and now we’re gonna mixit up it doesn’t have to all integratein fact you kind of want that peanutbutter to stay gooey gooey because it’sgoing to help connect everything thepeanut butter is almost acting like anegg here the next thing we’re going toadd is that baking soda sprinkle it ingive it time to activate and then we’regonna slowly add that buckwheat right inthis is one half cup of buckwheat thiswould also be the time to add youroptional pinch of cinnamon other thingsI can imagine tasting delicious in herewould be a little pinch of nutmeg orcardamom or anything in the pumpkinspice familyyou’re looking for a thick batter thatstill has a little bit of fluidity to itso keeping a little bit of extra oatmilk to the side is going to be helpfulbecause that buckwheat is extra extrathirsty and everything like thetemperature of the room how old yourgrains are can affect how thirsty it isso you want to keep an eye on it andjust make sure that you end up with abatter that can still drip and move it’snot too thick but you don’t want it tobe too runny either because then itwon’t hold together so this batter islooking pretty excellent I’m veryexcited about it now let’s go checklet’s go check the waffle iron to makesure it’s ready here’s my waffle ironit’s just a standard waffle iron righthere I have it preheated that’s thatcolor it means that it’s ready and Ihave it pre-greasedlook at that steam oh this
