Classic & Clean Waffles {gluten free}

IMG_8688IMG_8681What about waffles make them so irresistible?

  • the mini square pockets that act like a syrup trap
  • the funky geometric shape
  • their spongey texture that soaks up flavor
  • the fact that they are often served with whip cream

Every birthday since I can remember has been celebrated with decadent morning waffles smothered in whip cream and graciously topped with bacon. I will always correlate the steamy whiff of the waffle iron with happy February mornings with my family.

Because of this, I took extra care with creating an easy and doable healthy waffle recipe. This gal has no intentions of ruining my beloved birthday staple.

These gluten free waffles are ideal for when you want to recreate the warm waffle morning feeling, without the spectacular indulgence. The texture is light and fluffy, and they pair amazingly with berries and yogurt. Pop in the toaster and slather with some almond butter for an afternoon snack. They are great for making the morning before, and freeze well too. Just reheat in the oven or toaster until they spring back to their steamy selves.IMG_8658
