After tasting his first bite of “brinner” tonight my four year old said, “Mom, this is the best dinner ever! You should post this on your blog.” I didn’t know that he knew I wrote a blog and I am not even sure he knows what a blog is. Regardless, any meal my boys regard as blog worthy is truly blog worthy.
I have found a fun new blog that has great clean gluten-free/grain-free recipes, http://www.eatthecookie.wordpress.com. I slightly adapted her recipe for Sweet Potato Waffles and made what the boys and I would agree are the best gluten-free waffles we have had to date.
I served it with some breakfast sausage (Applegate makes a great gluten-free chicken breakfast sausage that tastes like regular sausage) and a green smoothie, which I have been making quite often for my own breakfasts. Recipe for that to come soon, too.
We served the waffles topped with organic cream cheese and a small drizzle of pure maple syrup. Yum!!! Delicious!!
1 c. pumpkin puree (I used organic pumpkin from Trader Joe’s)
1/4 c. unsweetened almond milk (or more if batter is too thick)
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
2 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbsp. coconut flour
1/2 c. tapioca flour
1/4 c. flax meal
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. each cloves, ginger, and nutmeg
In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla. Mix well. In a seperate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Mix two bowls together and add almond milk.
Allow to sit for 5 minutes. If batter is too thick, add more almond milk, a Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency. The thicker the batter, the more dense your waffles will be. I kept my batter pretty thick and had nice, dense waffles.
Heat waffle iron to a medium heat. Pour batter in and cook until done. This batch made two whole waffles for me.
Top with organic cream cheese and a dash of syrup for an amazing taste! Enjoy!
Husband Rating: Didn’t get one because my husband wasn’t home for this dinner but I think the fact that my 4 year old loved it so much speaks for itself… he rarely loves anything these days! Ahhh, the joys of parenting! 🙂
