Chickpea Waffles with Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Happy weekend everyone!

What are your plans? If your Sunday morning doesn’t involve waffles or pancakes of some sort… oh well, then I’m very sad for you and I hope you change your mind after checking out this ~banging~ chickpea waffle recipe. Oh yes, I did it again: calling my own recipes all sorts of great thing is my thing. Tooting my own horn is a national sport for me.

No regrets.

Do you want to know what you’ll regret?

Not saving the recipe for these waffles so you can make them tomorrow and every single day of the next week (month? year? decade?) cos they’re that good, baby. And you’ll likely regret not trying what’s probably the easiest homemade ice cream recipe ever. A couple of ingredients, a couple of good whisks, a lil bit of waiting and voilà: ice cream. Delicious, creamy goodness that you can customise to your liking (adding some chocolate or dulce de leche is brilliant) and use to take your waffles and pancakes to a whole new level.

You’re welcome.

Also, we’re keeping it real short today because… mmm… I have a real cute lil kitty asking me to play with her. If that’s not enough of a good reason to stop typing then I don’t know what it is. 

Chickpea Waffles with Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Chickpea Waffles with Coconut Milk Ice Cream


  • 300 grams canned chickpeas, well rinsed
  • 160 grams white or spelt flour
  • 160 grams coconut sugar
  • 10 grams baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 200 grams natural peanut butter
  • 200 grams coconut milk
  • 50 grams coconut oil
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • -
  • 2 cans of full fat coconut milk
  • 100 grams coconut sugar
  • 30 grams coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract (alcohol based is best, to avoid freezing)
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum (optional, but it makes the texture so much better)


  1. Add the chickpeas to a blender and process until smooth. Then, add the rest of ingredients until a paste is formed.
  2. Heat your waffle iron and grease it very, very well. This is key not to have the waffles stick to the pan.
  3. Cook waffles in batches and enjoy!
  4. To make the ice cream, whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl and pour them into your ice cream maker if you have one. If you don't own one, simply whisk them, pour mixture into a metal container and freeze. You'll need to stir the mixture every hour until it completely freezes to avoid big crystals of ice.
  5. Enjoy!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
