  • Combine the remaining chickpea flour, sriracha and water and whisk until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the panko flakes and 1/4 cup of flour. Melt 2 tbsp of butter in microwave for brushing the nuggets.
  • Once the nuggets are soft, let them cool, then brush with melted butter and roll in breading. In a small frying pan add remaining melted butter and pan fry nuggets for about 6 to 8 minutes till golden and crispy. Transfer to paper towels to remove any excess oil and set aside.
  • Combine remaining flour, baking powder, and agave in a mixing bowl. Add in the milk and whisk until combined. Batter should be thick and sticky. Melt remaining butter for iron.

  • Plate waffles with 2 to 3 nuggets per waffle. Enjoy!
