When it comes to making family breakfast, most of moms can be relaxed – this is the easiest meal to prepare – mix some cereals with milk or boil an egg – what can be easier than this? However, to plan breakfast for your allergic family members is usually one of the trickiest meal planning challenges of all. In our family we have members who are allergic to dairy, eggs and gluten. To plan a breakfast menu is usually one of the hardest part of meal planning for me. No scrambled eggs, no sandwich, no yogurt, no breakfast cereals, no pancakes. Before we discovered these allergies, we had a nice weekend tradition – waffles for breakfast. And we did not want to give it up. So my husband had lots of tries, lots of burned, mushy, squashy… waffles, but he made it and developed a very nice recipe for no egg, no dairy, gluten free waffles. You might be in no need to follow such dietary restrictions, but I would like to offer you to try making this healthy breakfast treat. You might be surprised how good they are.
No egg, no dairy, gluten free waffles
100 g gluten free flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour)
100 g nut flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour)
1 table spoon of gluten free baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 can of full fat coconut milk (without any additives or thickeners)
1 table spoon of honey or sugar
In a large bowl, mixt together the gluten free flour, nut flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add coconut milk and whisk to combine. Easy as that. The waffle mixture is ready.
Pour batter into preheated waffle maker and wait. We are using a waffle maker from KitchenAid. It makes two big round waffles at a time. This is just enough dough to make them. We divide the dough into two parts for each waffle. If you have another type of waffle maker, you might have more or fewer pieces of waffles. For KitchenAid waffle maker, it takes 8 min 30 seconds to bake them until nice consistency, which is much longer than to bake usual waffles with eggs, dairy and wheat flour. Time might differ with other waffle makers though.
I tried to make pancakes from this batter and they turned to be just as good as waffles.
I like to serve these waffles with some fruit and berries, but they should be delicious with maple syrup or jam as well.
I hope you will give it a try. Let me know what you think and what the result was.
My boy in action 🙂
