I got this recipe for gluten free waffles from my wonderful (and extremely fit) sister-in-law. Thanks Bethany! She made these for my niece’s first birthday party and they were a hit!
Why is gluten free a thing?
At first I was just curious what all the hype was about. So, I tried it. Slowly, I switched the carbs I ate toward less gluten. Then, went totally gluten free for a while. I noticed a lot of less swelling in my body as well as more energy! Even less belly bloat and irritation.
After my little experiment I think I’ll stick to it.
Gluten in grain is not recognized by the immune system. Most people can tolerate it, but those with Celiac obviously can’t at all. And a lot of people have gluten intolerance. So, that says to me that it might be a good thing for everyone to avoid.
Now, at first, I was skeptical about this recipe. But, really, the best taste testers are my family. They had no idea these things were gluten free and they loved them. And so did I.
So, let’s share!
Turn your waffle iron on and heat up to medium-high so you can get a good crispy waffle.
Now grab your ingredients. This is a recipe for 4 people.
Mix your dry… almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder and sea salt.
Now throw in your wet ingredients… beaten eggs, unsweetened apple sauce, maple syrup and vanilla. Not, the butter, that’s for greasing the iron.
Mix it all up.
Now brush your melted butter onto your waffle iron so your waffles don’t stick. That would get messy.
Now get pouring!
Pour 1/4 of your batter onto the waffle iron….
Close your iron and let it cook until golden brown and crispy.
Get out your maple syrup, a pat of butter and dig in!
