While I’m gathering my thoughts on grocery shopping with kids and pantry stocking for a diet like GAPS (or Paleo or SCD or Primal or Primal…), I would like to post our great waffle recipe. We eat leftovers for snacks later in the day with almond butter and jam. I also freeze some for a subsequent FAST breakfast. You can toast them like you do Eggos and eat them in the mini-van on the way to school! (If you do this, maybe add a little more honey, vanilla, and some cinnamon to add flavor since you won’t be adding any syrup on them.)
Ingredients for 6 waffles:
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoonful vanilla extract
2/3 cup water
2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 teaspoonful sea salt
1 teaspoonful baking soda
3 tablespoonsful coconut flour
Olive oil to oil waffle iron
1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, put all ingredients together.
2. With a handheld electric mixer, mix until smooth and combined well. About 1 minute. The batter looks like the consistency shown in a photo below at the end of the post.
3. Oil the waffle iron well. I use olive oil generously, but not enough to “stand” in the wells of the waffle iron. I use a brush that we use for brushing on marinades when grilling to get down into wells.
4. Ladle the batter onto the waffle iron. I use about 1/2 cup for each waffle, more or less, but I use a 1/4 measuring cup to put the batter onto the waffle iron in 2-3 different locations on the iron. Then I “smoosh” the batter around a bit to “connect” the dots.
5. Close iron and allow to cook until waffle iron light goes off. I get mine out with silicone-lined tongs, a silicone spatula, or a fork.
6. Serve with your choice of syrup. We do use maple syrup, despite the fact it’s “illegal” on GAPS/SCD, but only because my dad makes and sells maple syrup. It’s free to me! Using warmed honey diluted with a little warm water to thin it and a bit of mashed strawberries would be nice, too.
mmmm looks yummy. My kids love waffles.
Wow, these are airy, sweet, and so delicious! New favorite!
Delicious, new favorite. Airy and sweet. Highly recommend.
THANK YOU!! Finally, a grain-free waffle that doesn’t taste terrible. Even my kids had no idea there was no flour in it.
I’m so happy they pleased!
