Yum... Diary Free/Gluten Free "Buttermilk" Waffles

Sakura Natural Health

My children LOVE waffles, as most kids do! This is a lovely recipe that makes light and fluffy waffles. Inspiration came from Martha Stewart, and I modified it to fit our needs. These are great with pure grade B maple syrup and organic blueberries or strawberries. 

     Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons of Earth Balance buttery spread, plus more for waffle iron
  • 2 cups Hodgkin's Mill rice flour (available at Kroger)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (optional) (you can also use 1/2 tsp of non-bitter stevia)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 large eggs*, separated, room temperature
  • 2 cups "buttermilk", room temperature (I used organic unsweetened soy milk and added 1 TBLS of apple cider vinegar.  Let sit for 7-10 mins and it will curdle into a "buttermilk".  Feel free to use almond or rice or coconut milk as well)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Grease waffle iron with a small amount of melted earth balance buttery spread, and heat. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks, "buttermilk", melted earth balance buttery spread, and vanilla. Pour into dry mixture, and combine.

  3. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold whites into batter.

  4. Ladle about 1/3 cup batter onto each section of the waffle grid; spread batter almost to the edges. Close lid, and bake 3 to 5 minutes, until no steam emerges from waffle iron.

  5. Transfer cooked waffles to a baking sheet; place in an oven set to low heat, about 200 degrees, while using remaining batter.

* if you cannot eat eggs, I have made this recipe with egg replacers.
