Buckwheat Waffles

By Monday, February 23, 2015 , ,

Having been gluten free for about 3 years now, I've often missed out on eating waffles when I've been to Belgium and could only stare longingly at those of my family's...

But that's no more, because I got a waffle maker from Cuisinart and that meant the start of me making waffles. The traditional waffle topping is generally icing sugar or maple syrup, but like pancakes I like to experiment with berries and soy yoghurt as toppings, as well as nut butter of course. I think waffles are quite versatile!

These buckwheat waffles are free of gluten, dairy, eggs and of refined sugars. They're almost too good to be true- how do they taste so nice?!

Makes 2 waffles

You will need:

40g buckwheat flour
30g other gluten free flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond milk

Mix the flours, baking powder, vanilla extract and almond milk in a bowl. Cut the banana in half, mashing one half and cutting the other into slices. Add the mashed banana to the waffle batter. Turn on your waffle maker and allow to heat up, meanwhile oil the plates so the waffle mixture doesn't stick.

Once the waffle maker is hot, pour in your batter, close the lid and allow to cook until golden brown and crisp on the outside. Carefully remove from the waffle maker, put on a plate and top with the other half of the banana in slices and whatever else you like!
