Week of Waffles - This Time Cinnamon Buckwheat - Gluten, Egg & Dairy Free for my Daughter


Okay - still lovin' my new $4 waffle maker. It has given me such joy that I feel I need to share another waffle recipe with you...........

I shared my awesome Grain-free Paleo Protein Pumpkin Waffle recipe on Tuesday. Those were awesome. But those had egg in them so they were for me.

I came up with this recipe for my daughter. My wonderful daughter that turned 6 today. WHAT. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN. We had her "Monkey Bar Birthday Party" yesterday and it was a BLAST. [Come back Sunday for a recap of her party and all the monkey details - it will be replacing my regular Sunday week in review]. She was completely happy, confident and over the moon about everything. Especially the presents and the egg, gluten and dairy free Betty Crocker cupcakes. A great reminder and reinforcement that all the hard work we are doing with her diet, supplements and routine is paying off. That we need to keep sticking to it even though it can be so inconvenient and exhausting.

Last year's party was a disaster. She was not a happy little girl. But she is happy now. She is thriving. And that makes me happy.

So in honor of this milestone I'm posting the waffle recipe I came up with for her. Make a double batch, freeze some and reheat them in the toaster.

That's what I did with these ones. Then I topped them with banana's, strawberries and a light drizzle of melted chocolate. Banana Split Waffles............who says eating clean isn't fun and delicious!




Gluten, Egg and Dairy Free Buckwheat flour waffles with cinnamon

by MamaChanty
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 (total)
Keywords: breakfast snack gluten-free vegan chia
Ingredients (4 waffles)
    Dry Ingredients
    • 1/2 cup rice flour
    • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
    • 1/4 cup arrowroot
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/4 tsp guar gum
    Chia Gel (replaces egg)
    • 1 Tbsp ground Chia seed
    • 1/4 cup water
    Wet Ingredients
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened milk (I used almond)
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
    • 8 drops liquid Stevia (or 2 Tbsp organic cane palm coconut sugar)
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
    • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
    Instructions
    Combine ground Chia and water. Let stand for 5 minutes for Chia to gel.
    Combine dry ingredients.
    Combine wet ingredients including Chia gel.
    Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients until just combined.
    Heat waffle iron. Spray with coconut or grape seed oil.
    Pour 1/4 of the mixture into each half of your waffle maker. Note that the batter is very thick. You can thin it out by adding extra milk or just use a spatula to spread it out.
    Close waffle iron and let cook until indicator light shows it is done. I cooked mine for about 2 minutes and 20 seconds and they were perfect. It will depend on your waffle iron.
    Remove from waffle iron and serve with toppings of choice.

    Modifications: I have also done this recipe with 1/4 cup pumpkin & 2 Tbsp apple sauce instead of 1/4 cup of applesauce. Also great.
