homemade gluten-free waffles {vegan, too!}

March 8, 2012
I like waffles quite a lot.  I actually love waffles.  And today is the perfect opportunity to expound my waffle love by sharing my current favorite waffle recipe that is drop-dead-delicious. 

There's just something about a stack (preferably giant-sized) of waffles that triggers an unbeatable waffle-coma.  Perhaps that's just me... and maybe that's just a sign of how much effort I put into my beloved, yet super-easy-to-make-waffles.  But if you were to be pro-waffle-coma, like myself, there's no better waffle to post-nosh nap than with these healthy lil' guys. 
These waffles are dairy-free, egg-free & gluten-free, which just makes my tummy sing.  The waffle-holic in me wants to make a weekly weekday-morning tradition of waffles, even though my mind can only wrap around waffles as a weekend thing.   Sometimes you just need to make Thursday special.  I'll just need to okay my waffle-coma with my boss first.

Homemade Waffles

gluten-free, vegan

3/4 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
3 tablespoons water
3/4 cup gluten-free multi-purpose flour blend (I like King Arthur's)
1/4 cup sweet white rice flour
2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
3 tablespoons xylitol (or regular granulated should be fine)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
fresh blueberries, strawberries, bananas or other fruit, for garnish
maple syrup
  1. Mix together almond milk, coconut oil, ground flaxseed, and water in a small mixing bowl. 
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the two flours, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just blended. 
  4. Lightly grease waffle iron with some coconut oil. 
  5. Spoon batter into pan and cook on medium-high heat approximately 4 minutes until steam no longer escapes. 
  6. Serve with fresh fruit and maple syrup.
