Nutty Orange Wafflewiches
3 cups quick oats (raw)
3 cups soy milk
1 cup powdered coconut
1 cup All-Purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoon Oil (choose one that doesn’t have a strong flavor, maybe Canola)
2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 cup orange juice from concentrate
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel (if you have a mandarin or tangerine on hand and can grate the rind, do it, it is even sweeter than orange zest and gives a wonderful flavor!)
1 1/2 cups brown or date sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoon Ener-G Egg Replacer dissolved in 1/4 cup water and well beaten till it resembles soft egg whites
vegan vanilla ice cream of your choice.
You will also need plastic wrap.

How to make your wafflewiches
Once an hour has passed, and your waffle iron is hot, pour the mixture into it as usual and bake. Placing the waffles in a bowl or cookie sheet as you make them. Once you have them all done, place some pecan ice cream on top of one and cover with another waffle to make a sandwich, careful pressing down. Take the sandwich and gently roll the sides on the ground pecans or walnuts. Carefully wrap your sandwich in the plastic wrap. Place in a container that will go into the freezer. Repeat this procedure until you have finishe'd the waffles. When you are ready to serve, drizzle a little bit of the melted jam on top of each wafflewich.
Note: This recipe doesn’t have baking powder because it’s better if the waffles are crunchy so that they won’t fall apart with the ice cream. If you want them with a little baking powder, I suggest to add 1 Tb. Ener-G Calcium carbonate to the batter before it goes into the fridge.
You can open a can of tangerines in juice and use them to top your wafflewiches.
