Ingredients

Rhubarb

350 g, trimmed, roughly chopped

Waitrose Love Life Pitted Medjool Dates

50 g

Freshly squeezed orange juice

125 ml

Wholemeal Flour

185 g

Baking powder

2 teaspoons, level

Egg, whole, raw

2 large, raw

Skimmed Milk

180 ml

Banana(s)

1 medium, mashed

Vanilla Extract

1 teaspoons, level

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

200 g

Pistachios

10 g, roughly chopped

Mint, Fresh

10 sprig(s), to serve

Instructions

  1. Combine the rhubarb, dates and orange juice in a medium pan. Cover and bring to a gentle simmer over a medium-low heat. Cook for 10 minutes or until the fruit is very soft. Leave to cool slightly, then use a stick blender or food processor to blitz until smooth.
  2. Meanwhile, sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Whisk the eggs, milk, banana and vanilla in a jug. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir gently to combine.
  3. Lightly mist a nonstick waffle maker with cooking spray and preheat to high. Pour the mixture into the waffle maker, using a quarter of the mixture per waffle. Cook for 3-5 minutes, until the waffle is crisp and golden on the outside. Keep warm and repeat to make 4 waffles.
  4. Serve the waffles topped with the rhubarb and date purée, yogurt, pistachios and a few fresh mint leaves.

Notes

No waffle maker? No worries! Use the batter to make 8 pancakes instead. Cook for 3-4 mins each side until golden.
