Who doesn't love a good waffle for breakfast. They challenge I have found is the cleaner I am with my diet the more sensitive to certain foods, this include products with gluten. I personally have found gluten-free products to be hit or miss. Leaning more on the missed side. I have found some products to be quite lovely. Bob's Red Mill has a variety of gluten free products and mixes. I recently picked up their gluten free pancake mix. I added a few things to the mix and was pleasantly surprised. Did it completely remind me of the pancakes I had as a child...No. However, it was not that far off.
So a few Sundays ago I had an intense craving for waffles. I remembered I had the mix and decided to experiment. I created the best waffles I have ever had. The flavors were pronounced and the waffles were fluffy. I intended to share some with my friends but unfortunately I couldn't help myself going back for seconds and thirds. The recipe is below. Send me images of how it comes out. I'm contemplating seeing how this works for pancakes.
