These wholesome waffles have an interesting nutty and slightly earthy flavor. They're deliciously crispy on the outside, yet light and soft on the inside. Since they're made with red lentil flour, which has a decent amount of protein, you can eat these and feel like you're indulging, when in reality you're getting a nice dose of nutrition. Life hack!
