Photography, Styling and Recipe: Ashley Alexander

Makes 6-8

2 cups buckwheat flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla powder
3 tbsp coconut sugar
2 cups almond milk
3 eggs
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted  
3-4 large peaches, sliced
3 tbsp extra coconut sugar (for caramelizing the peaches)
1 tbsp extra coconut oil (for caramelizing the peaches)
100g dark chocolate
¼ cup pistachios, roughly chopped
natural yoghurt or coconut yoghurt (unsweetened)
Pure maple syrup


  1. In a large pan, melt the extra 1 tbsp coconut oil and sprinkle with the 3 tbsp coconut sugar.
  2. Place the sliced peaches into the pan over the coconut sugar and cook on medium to high heat until golden brown.
  3. Turn the peach slices over and cook for a further few minutes until golden on the other side. Once the peaches are cooked, set aside.
  4. Place the buckwheat flour, baking soda, sea salt, vanilla powder and coconut sugar into a large mixing bowl.
  5. Then add the almond milk, coconut oil and egg yolks and gently stir to combine.
  6. In a medium bowl whisk the egg whites until stiff and then fold into the mixture.
  7. Place your waffle pan onto the stove to heat up. Once hot lightly spray with oil.
  8. Place the mixture into the waffle pan. The amount will vary depending on the size of your waffle pan. My pan takes about ¼ cup each side of the pan.
  9. Cook for about 2 min on high heat, then turn the waffle pan over and cook for a further few minutes.
  10. Remove the cooked waffles from the pan then repeat with the remaining mixture.
  11. To serve, place the waffles onto a plate, add a generous dollop of natural yogurt, some caramelized peaches, a drizzle of dark chocolate, a glug of pure maple syrup, and sprinkle with pistachios.
