A couple of weeks ago, on a foggy Saturday morning and I was craving waffles! I think the cool morning made me want to eat something warm and comforting. I have two favorite “go to” gluten-free waffle recipes. Which one I make, depends on what ingredients I have in my house when I get the craving!
The following recipe was my first attempt at gluten-free waffles. In my opinion, this one tastes most like a “gluten type” waffle. The original recipe I found was from Real Food Kosher. I’ve tweaked it a bit, and this is my version. It makes about four – five waffles, in my round waffle maker. I usually make extra, and freeze them for a quick breakfast option later. They are easily reheated in a toaster.
Almond Flour Waffles
*Update 4/11/15* If you attempted this recipe prior to April 2015 I mistyped the amount of flour, so if it didn’t turn out I apologize. The recipes now reflects the correct amount.
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup cream, milk, or coconut milk
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup, or honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- Pinch of sea salt
- 2 Tbsp of chia or flax seeds (optional)
Blend all ingredients with a hand mixer. Pour batter in the waffle maker. Add butter and your favorite toppings
Coconut Flour Waffles
This is a high protein, gluten-free option. The original recipe is from Just Enjoy Food. This recipe also makes about four waffles in my waffle maker. I haven’t attempted to freeze these ones yet.
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil
- 1/4 cup cream, milk or coconut milk
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 teaspoons of honey, maple syrup, optionall
Crack the eggs into a medium-sized bowl and beat with a hand mixer. Add the melted butter or oil, cinnamon, vanilla and salt and mix well.
The batter should be thick but not so thick it doesn’t easily spread onto the waffle maker. If it’s to think, added a couple of tablespoons of water. If it’s too thin, add a little more coconut flour.
Let the batter stand for 20 minutes, to allow the coconut flour to absorb the eggs, butter or oil completely. Pour batter into waffle maker. Add butter and your favorite toppings.
