Meatless Monday: Gluten free Waffles

I’m guilty of being “anti-GF” at times. I chalk it up to too many disappointments in the past. Grainy cookies, chalky brownies, dry cakes…I’ve tried it all, but these? These are delightful. A bit of a lighter texture than the usual wheaty waffle, but it’s a welcome difference. Try these this weekend…smother them with fruit and agave, and if you really like yourself, mix up a mimosa to go with them!

Enjoy!

Gluten Free Waffles

3/4 cup non-dairy milk

2 tbsp of melted coconut oil (or margarine)

1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water)

1/2 cup gluten-free all purpose flour

1/4 cup rice flour

1/4 cup almond flour or finely ground almonds

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3 tbsp sugar

(optional) fresh berries, apples, bananas or other fruitt; maple syrup; powdered sugar

Mix together milk, oil, flaxseed, and water in a small mixing bowl.
In a larger bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just blended.
Lightly grease waffle iron or use nonstick spray.
Spoon batter into pan and cook on medium-high heat for approximately 4 minutes until steam no longer escapes.
Dust with powdered sugar, top with fresh fruit, maple syrup or agave.
