People think going vegan means you miss out on all the goodies, but that’s not true! Taste and texture can be different, but it’s about feeling good about what you’re putting into your body and that what you’re eating is cruelty free.
Luckily, healthier grocery items are becoming more available in Cebu city. S&R is a great place to shop for healthy items, as well as Healthy Options and Rustan’s.
(You can use any brand of these items)
Ingredients from S&R:
Natura- Almond Milk Vanilla
Cloud 9- Gluten-Free Pancake & Waffle Mix
from Healthy Options:
The Chia Co- White Chia Seeds
Soak one cup of chia seeds into one cup of water for 10 minutes
Put 1 1/2 cups of the gluten-free waffle mix into a big bowl
Add 1 1/4 of almond or any non-dairy milk and mix
Mix in the chia seeds with 2 table spoons of coconut oil
If you’re making pancakes, heat up the pan and pour in the size you want. Flip after about 1-2 minutes.
If you’re using a waffle maker, pour in and remove after 2-3 minutes, depending on your waffle maker.
Serve and eat with your favourite toppings. I chose Agave syrup (from S&R), Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup (yes, it’s vegan!), and Cashew Butter- Vanilla Chia (from The Echo Store).
Enjoy your waffles and enjoy eating cruelty-free!
