Crunchy Gluten-Free Waffles

Crunchy Gluten-Free Waffles

Being half-Belgian, waffles are a must in our household. Sure, it’s not something we eat everyday, but when we do, we cherish it. There is a traditional recipe, Belgian Liege waffles, which is a thick waffle filled with crunchy sugar pieces, but it’s not very healthy, especially with all the butter and sugar. This is a simpler, healthier version of it which is pretty much a waffle that actually tastes like a thin waffle cookie, or in proper terms “Pizelle” (for those food experts).

Please pardon the random banana slices. I was in a rush and the waffles looked so plain so I thought that adding fruit would look better, but, as I said, I was in a rush so they weren’t cut or placed very well. I might’ve been also a bit distracted by the crazy turn of events *ahem, USA elections* that happened this past week. I’m not from the States but it still shocked me.

I was quite pleased with this because I thought almond flour would make it too dense, but it actually made it crunchier (I don’t know about you, but that’s how I like my waffles)!

Healthy waffles that taste like sweet waffle cookies are the best!
Ingredients:
1 tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice
3/4 cup almond milk
1  1/4 cups almond flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Add the vinegar/lemon juice to the almond milk and let sit for 5 minutes to curdle.
  2. While waiting for the milk to curdle, sift the flour and baking soda in a medium bowl.
  3. Mix the eggs with the milk in another bowl and add in the maple syrup or honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Whisk in the flour mixture until smooth.
  4. Pour half of the batter into your preheated and greased waffle machine (mine makes two at a time) and wait for 5 to 10 minutes until slightly brown and slightly crispy. Serve straight away with fruit.
