Grain-Free Waffles

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.)

Waffles

Ingredients for 6 waffles:

5 eggs
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.
