Liquid from 1 can of garbanzo beans
2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 ½ tsp salt (use Suncore Foods® Rose Salt for extra flavor)
½ tsp xanthan gum

3 tbsp Suncore Foods® Quinoa Flakes
1 ¾ cups milk (we used almond milk)
2 flax eggs*
4 tbsp agave
1 tbsp vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup organic cranberries
1. Make flax eggs by combining 2 tbsp flax meal with 5 tbsp water. Let sit to thicken for 10-15 min, stirring several times.
2. Drain beans and reserve the liquid. If you have a stand mixer, pour all of the liquid into your mixing bowl attachment and beat at medium-high speed for approximately 10 minutes until aquafaba forms stiff peaks.
3. Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, xanthan gum, hemp seeds and quinoa flakes together in a medium bowl.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, flax eggs, agave, and vanilla. Slowly incorporate dry ingredients with a hand mixer. Add melted butter and continue mixing.
5.Fold in pecans and cranberries. Finally, gently fold in all of the whipped aquafaba until well incorporated.
6. Cook in waffle maker until golden and crispy.
