Mochi Waffles with Vanilla & Almond

These Mochi Waffles… hooooo boy are they yummy. You can probably tell that I love pretty much anything mochi, but these… I’m not sure I even have words to express how much I loved these. They are crispy, super chewy, sweet and SO GOOD!

My kids didn’t even put syrup on them, they just ate them straight up the minute we pulled them out of the waffle maker. And then, the leftovers… we kept picking at them all day until they were gone. And we’ve been talking about them ever since.

The sweet rice flour gives the most amazing crispy, chewy texture that you’d expect from anything mochi. AND as hard as it is to believe this, these waffles are actually way easier to make than traditional waffles… no egg separating or excessive whisking here! Nothing more than a couple of bowls and a spoon.

If you need a super impressive but super easy to make brunch dish this is it. So good!! Did I say that already?

Anything special you need to know about how to make mochi waffles?

*You must use “sweet rice flour”, also called “glutinous rice flour”, for these mochi waffles. Don’t use regular rice flour. Need more info? Click here.

*You can omit the almond extract if that’s not your thing, but trust me when I tell you that it really, really works.

*You can serve these with butter and syrup (golden syrup would be so good here). I ate mine warm, with butter and a big old sprinkle of toasted sliced almonds. They’re also absolutely amazing with strawberries or strawberry sauce.

*As soon as I made these I started to think that they would make a super fun dessert too, served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream… let me know if you try!
