gluten free waffles

I was craving waffles.  But my Beloved has been limiting gluten in his life again.  He is not gluten free currently but that could happen soon.  I figured that I really needed to come up with a gluten free waffle recipe so that we could eat together.  Us eating together is a good thing.  We enjoy each others company, talk up a storm, and I actually eat.  It is too easy for me to forget to eat unless I am with someone (or threatened that I cannot have my cookies unless I eat real food first!  Happened today!)

Molly over at Orangette asked for all the best waffle recipes awhile back.  She came up with two.  One was yeasted and one was not.  I was thinking about trying the yeasted one but ran out of steam so I tried the non-yeasted waffle recipe and made it gluten free.  

I think this gluten free waffle is the best waffle I had ever made.  It was light and crispy.  We did not think it needed syrup.  And it was whole grain which is something my Beloved is always pleased to have.  The grain flavors really come through so if you wish a different flavor, change the flours you use from what I used.

Gluten Free Waffles

adapted from Molly at Orangette A Great Make-the-morning-of waffle.

1/4 cup teff flour

1/4 cup almond flour

1/4 cup sorghum flour

1/4 cup arrowroot starch

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sugar

1 cup soured hempmilk (2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and 14 tablespoons hempmilk)

1/3 cup olive oil

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat your waffle iron.  Mine is a cast iron waffle iron that sits on the stove.  I spray it with PAM so that the waffles do not stick.

In a mixing bowl, put in all the dry ingredients.  Whisk well (make them fluffy!)

Add the oil, milk, egg, and vanilla to the dry ingredients.  Mix well.

Pour into the heated waffle iron and bake until done.  It should take about five minutes.  I noticed a definite scent change when the waffle was done.

Serve.  You can add syrups or fruit or yogurt or.....  We ate ours plain.

This is what remained of our breakfast!  Even if you were not gluten free, I would go out and get these flours and give this a whirl.  They were the best waffles we have ever had.
