WAFFLES || vegan | gluten-free | oil-free

waffles August 28, 2015

I got a Waring-Pro double waffle maker a few years ago and have only used it twice.  I just couldn’t find a waffle recipe to my liking.  The first one was a disaster and the second just okay.  For my third attempt I scoured the internet and found several vegan recipes but they either contained oil, had bad reviews or weren’t gluten-free.  For the record, I don’t believe wheat/gluten is the evil food many people make it out to be but I seem to have a sensitivity so I go without, which is really no big deal. When done right, it really does force one to make healthier choices.  Which is why most people feel better and lose weight after cutting it out of their diet; not necessarily because gluten was making them heavy or feel badly but because by cutting it out they eliminated processed foods and crap.  But I digress….we are supposed to be talking about tasty waffles here, not gluten.

As I was saying, I couldn’t find a good waffle recipe so I took a chance and made one up, and man was I happy I did! These waffles came out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.  I did have to spray the waffle iron with cooking spray – you just can’t get away from that; trust me, I know this from experience.  So have at it! I hope these work out as well for you as they did for me.

If you love waffles but can't have gluten, and don't consume animal products or oils, this recipe is for you!! They are delicious and according to my family, you'd never know they were gluten-free - which is a plus since a lot of gluten-free things resemble cardboard!

Recipe Notes

I make my own flour blend using 1.5 cups brown rice flour, 1.5 cups sorghum flour, 3/4 cups each potato starch and arrowroot, but I'm sure a store-bought variety would work just fine.  I haven't tried it though so...fingers crossed!  🙂

If you aren't familiar with buckwheat groats, they are easily found in natural grocery stores such as Sprouts and Whole Foods.  Despite the name 'buckwheat' they contain no wheat and are 100% gluten-free.  Raw buckwheat groats are called just that, and toasted groats are called Kasha.  Use raw buckwheat groats here.
