Waffles-Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Delicious
The secret to these waffles is using a good flour mix. My favorite flour mix recipe is the one in Gluten-Free Baking Classics. But equally important is the brand of flour. Unlike wheat flour which is pretty standard, gluten free flours each have their own consistency and flavor. See my post on the gluten free flour mix to see the flours I have found work best.
2 cups gluten free flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
3 egg whites (use the yolks for another recipe)
1/4 cup coconut oil (or your favorite oil)
1 cup rice or Silk almond milk (or seltzer)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla
Whisk together the gluten free flour, salt and baking powder. Separate
the 3 eggs. In a mixing bowl, stir together maple syrup, yolks, 1 egg,
rice milk, coconut milk and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients until
blended. In separate large bowl or with an electric mixer beat the 3
eggwhites until they form soft peaks that hold their shape. Then fold the
egg whites into the other ingredients. Cook in waffle iron. Enjoy with
maple syrup or jam.
Makes 7 waffles.
