Classic Crispy Paleo Waffles (Grain Free + Nut Free)
my grain-free paleo waffles with Hnina’s chocolate sprouted spread aka healthy Nutella on crack with strawberries.
I love waffles.
The bring me back to my childhood.
My mom would always make homemade waffles on special occasions, she would dress them up with homemade cherry sauce or strawberries. Depending on what was in season. She would add scoops of good quality vanilla ice cream and sometimes a drizzle of homemade caramel sauce.
As we got older the dressed up waffles became reheating those waffles that she would make in bulk and then let us dress up as we pleased.
The different stages of high school definitely show up.
The period of peanut butter and banana everything.
The period of Nutella in all its glory.
And then no waffles well because I was diagnosed with celiac.
Okay, so yes I did get waffles but instead of being my mom’s homemade waffles they turned into buying them at the store. (BTW the quality of gluten-free frozen waffles is SO much better now)
After years of experimenting my mom finally was able to create the best gluten-free waffle recipe ever that also happens to be grain free. Living in Panama cassava flour was a lot more common than any of the other gluten-free options out, which is why I use cassava flour as a base, while I have tried with others, I haven’t been successful in achieving the same texture I did with these.
Well in honor of my beautiful mother and mother’s day I wanted to share with you all my favorite crispy waffle recipe. I’ve been using this recipe for years now and I’m surprised it wasn’t on the blog.
It is easy to make, you can leave all the dry ingredients all mixed up and then all you have to do is blend everything up with the wet ingredients and pour into waffle iron and eat.
I like using cassava flour and tapioca starch in here it really makes for a great waffle.
