I told you, you were in for a treat today. Check out these beautiful waffles. They’re fluffy, moist, packed full of energy, and so delicious. I have to admit I didn’t think I’d like all this gluten free stuff, especially the baking. But so far so good. I thought, why should I ever bake with anything but wheat flour, I mean that’s what regular old flour is. I can’t even pronounce half of these other flours and gums. Why should I cook with them? Well short answer is they don’t contain gluten, and they are all natural products. Yes the texture and flavor is a little different than the typical all purpose wheat flour, but if I didn’t tell you, you wouldn’t know the difference. These waffles are seriously so good, and they fit perfectly into my diet.
- 1½ Cups Gluten Free Pancake Mix (or All Purpose Gluten Free Flour)
- 1 Cup Almond Milk (or soy milk)
- 1 Tbs Flax Seed Meal
- 1 Tbs Vegetable Oil
- ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
- ¼ tsp Almond Extract
- If using All Purpose Flour or All Purpose Gluten Free Flour:
- add an additional ½ cup of Almond Milk
- and ¼ cup Sugar or Sugar Substitute
- ½ tsp Baking Powder
- Whisk flaxseed meal into the almond milk, then whisk that into the pancake mix with the remaining ingredients.
- Pour into waffle maker, or cook as pancakes on a hot griddle.
- Top with fresh berries and maple syrup.
Now after you eat these yummy homemade waffles you’ll be ready for anything. My hubby and I decided to burn off our added energy at the park playing tennis. It was a great workout, and he beat me
After that we were ready for a little snack, so I whipped up a simple smoothie. 6oz of OJ, 2oz Almond Milk, 1/2 cup Raspberries, 1/2 Cup Blackberries, and 1 Cup of Mango = 2 smoothies. Yumm, they were so good! I also tossed in a handful of spinach into mine, if you don’t mind a muddy color it’s not a bad way to sneak in some added nutrients. Another favorite smoothie of mine after an intense workout is just oj, vanilla protein powder, and a banana, that also goes good with spinach if you like… Keep it up!
