Failed Waffles

I decided to try to make some waffles this morning. I have never tired before and bought a waffle maker yesterday so I was pumped for this! Turns out that my batter was not right for waffles, but the flavor was there and I think it would have been great for pancakes. First I set the waffle make at level 3 which is what the direction recommended. I ended up pouring way to much batter in and a lot of it ran out the side. Also turned out that this was way to long and it burnt the whole thing. Once I got it all cleaned up I turned the waffle iron down to level 2 and gave it another go with much less batter. While it didn’t burn it to a crisp like last time it was still having issues over cooking as you can see in the pictures below. I ended up turning it all the way down to 1 and this seemed to be the sweet spot for not over cooking. Once issue I has was that the bottom right quarter kept sticking to the iron and was struggling to get it off. The last waffle actually came out ok still didn’t have to much thickness but tasted great. I used very little batter and poured most of it on the left side of the iron as that seemed to be the area that didn’t stick. and as you can see in the pictures the one on top looks like a real waffle. This was still a filling attempt as I did get a big plate of what ever you want to call these. I’m not giving up on this because I feel the flavor is there just need to find out how to get some volume on these. My egg whites are starting to get a liquidy texture to them so it could have had something to do with it, or maybe some additional coconut flour which was pretty old so not to confident in it.  Heres what I put in the batter:

65g banana

1tbsp baking powder

1/2cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

7g MyOatmeal PBlean

1 scoop Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl whey

184g egg whites

3tsp coconut flour

cinnamon, nutmeg and Splenda

The macros for the entire batter is 35c/9f/52p and with the topping its 42c/14f/53p. Going to play around with it a bit. Once I have this figured out a bit I’ll record a video.
