Most of the time I do not make my waffles from scratch (gasp!), but instead, opt for my favorite all purpose gluten free baking mix by “Pamela’s” and add a bunch of extra’s. You can find the delicious mix at most grocery stores and of course, Whole Foods.
What do I add?
Ground Almond Meal, Vanilla Powder, Sliced Almonds, Flax Oil, Sesame Seeds, Carob Chips, Fresh Raspberries or Blueberries, Agave, Honey or any other thing I might be able to get away with.
Of course I only choose a few from the list above, but always include the Ground Almond Meal, a great way to add extra protein. To top this warm toasty treat, I recommend using the Agave/Maple blend from Trader Joe’s or only Agave. The low glycemic index will help prevent sugar spikes an hour later! If you use syrup, be sure to use 100% Maple.
Savory waffles are great crowd pleasers for a party too! I like to add curry powder, toasted flax seeds, green onions, or maybe chili powder, then serve with chili or soup or top with hummus or tabouleh…the list is endless and you will need to cook a few plain ones right after, to get rid of the excess spice flavor!
