Brown Rice Flour & Apple Sauce Waffle

I may have a subconscious mission in life to come up with as many waffle recipes as I can conjure. I love waffles. Everything about them and the fact that they are a popular breakfast item just makes them that much more appealing to me.

These waffles are not super sweet which is what I prefer (you could add some honey or maple syrup to your batter). I paired mine with berries (and topped with an egg). 

Brown Rice Flour & Apple Sauce Waffle

1 cup apple sauce
2 eggs, organic cage-free
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup water
1 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup almond meal
1 tsp ground flaxseed
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
Dash of cinnamon 

Method:

Heat your waffle maker to desired baking temperature/level. Mine has 5 levels and I set mine to about 2.5).  Rub some coconut oil on the irons first if there isn't any remaining oil from the last round, I find I need to do this about every third use to prevent sticking.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, apple sauce, vanilla and water. Blend well and then add in the brown rice flour, almond meal and flaxseed. Stir until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Add in the baking soda, apple cider vinegar and cinnamon, stir until a batter forms.

Heat in the iron for about 2.5 minutes or until your iron signals that they are done.

I am a big fan of huge breakfasts on the weekends. Big. Huge. (Those words will forever remind me of this scene from Pretty Woman).

Yum.

Seriously.

Enjoy (with some French Pressed Sumatra... ;))

The Savory Waffle

Who other than the amazing Juli Bauer to inspire this recipe? If you haven't pursued her site, PaleOMG, I would suggest you do so. Like now. But then come back here ;)

This waffle made for a great dinner. Savory really is the best way to describe it.

Here is the original recipe by Juli, Savory Waffles with Mushroom Gravy. I adapted it slightly and did not do the mushroom gravy though it looks divine.

The Savory Waffle

4 eggs, organic/cage-free
3 tbls coconut milk (from the can, I used Light)
2 tbls coconut flour
2 tbls grapeseed oil
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of rosemary (could use fresh, I used dried)
Dash of chive (could use fresh, I used dried)
Pinch of sea salt
Pinch of pepper
1/4 tsp baking soda

Method:

Heat your waffle maker to desired baking temperature/level. Mine has 5 levels and I set mine to about 2.5).  Rub some coconut oil on the irons first if there isn't any remaining oil from the last round, I find I need to do this about every third use to prevent sticking.

In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients until a smooth batter forms (or use a food processor).

Pour into the waffle iron and let it do its thing for a couple of minutes ;)

Yields ~ 4 small waffles 

So many options for this waffle.  With gravy, sandwhich it with some meat, maple syrup...

But I decided to top mine with some organic, unsweetened apple butter and pair it with plain steamed sweet potatoes and spinach.

I took my time eating this meal...

Flourless Pumpkin Waffles

My obsession with pumpkin this fall is only growing. I hear, see or smell pumpkin and I'm drawn in like a horse with grain.

These waffles were delicious. I ate all four squares in one sitting. 

Flourless Pumpkin Waffles

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2  eggs, organic & cage-free
2 tbls light coconut milk (from the can)
1 tbls arrowroot powder
1 tsp ground flax-seed
Dash of cinnamon
Pinch of cardamon
1 tbls unsweetened organic coconut flakes

Method:

Heat your waffle maker to desired baking temperature/level. Mine has 5 levels and I set mine to about 2.5).  Rub some coconut oil on the irons first if there isn't any remaining oil from the last use.

In a medium sized bowl, whip together the pumpkin, eggs, and coconut milk. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.

Place the batter in waffle iron and cook until your waffle iron beeps (or about three minutes).

Top with Earth Balance Coconut Spread and enjoy (with some bacon and a dab of 100% pure maple syrup..;))
