Tasty Tuesday: Gluten Free Waffles

I will admit I have been using the gluten free “baking mixes” to make pancakes.  I have wanted to try waffles but have been hesitant.  First, it means finding and pulling out the waffle iron and honestly, frozen seems so much easier…

So, I’m going to give this a try…. I mean waffles aren’t just for breakfast, right?  You can have them as a dessert or whenever you feel like a tasty snack! They are low in carbohydrates, and contain lots of healthy protein and fats to keep your energy levels high.

The recipe has no added sugars or gluten, and uses coconut instead of regular flour.  You can top them off with some organic butter or some homemade Granny Smith Applesauce (the recipe is also here)

Prep time: 10 minutes      Cook time: 15 minutes       Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: Two 8-inch waffles

INGREDIENTS

4 egg whites
4 egg yolks
⅓ cup canned coconut milk
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1 tsp. alcohol free vanilla
½ tsp. or 1 packet Stevia
½ cup coconut flour
½ tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • In a medium bowl beat egg whites until soft peaks form, set aside. In a small bowl whisk egg yolks, coconut milk, coconut oil, alcohol free vanilla and stevia, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add coconut flour, baking soda and salt, stir to combine. Add egg whites and egg yolk mixture to the coconut flour mixture, stir gently to combine, then let batter rest for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour half of the waffle batter onto a preheated waffle iron. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Serve waffles topped with a little butter. If you are on the later stages of the diet, try the Granny Smith Applesauce below!

INGREDIENTS FOR GRANNY SMITH APPLESAUCE

4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, seeded and quartered
1 cup water
2 tbsp. lemon juice
Stevia, to taste
Cinnamon, to taste

DIRECTIONS FOR GRANNY SMITH APPLESAUCE

  • In a medium saucepan, combine apples, water and lemon juice. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples become very soft and are falling apart, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, mash with a potato masher or pulse in a food processor for a smoother texture.
  • Add stevia and cinnamon to taste. Applesauce can be stored in covered containers in refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks.
