Even if you’re not restricting gluten from your diet, it is good to incorporate a variety of foods into your day of eating. I realized that I was depending on wheat based products for two to three meals a day so I’ve been developing gluten free options of my favorite foods. The problem is that most GF foods are rubbery and terrible. These waffles have great flavor and are crispy! Get your cook on!
- 1 1/2 cups oat flour (see notes)
- 1 1/2 cups 1:1 gluten free mix (head here to make your own blend)
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups non-dairy milk + 1 Tbl apple cider vinegar
- 4 Tbl maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or canola oil
- 1/2 cup aquafaba + 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
Mix together milk and vinegar and let sit while you prepare the other ingredients. Let sit at least 5 minutes.
Whisk all dry ingredients together well. Add maple syrup, vanilla, and oil to milk. Whisk.
Measure out 1/2 cup liquid from can of chickpeas (aquafaba) and add cream of tartar. Using your own muscles or a mixer whisk until peaks form: about 5 minutes. Mix dry and wet ingredients together. Fold in aquafaba until completely incorporated.
Spray waffle maker plates with oil. Measurement of batter and cook time will depend on your waffle maker. However, most cook in 6-7 minutes. Store waffles in 200F oven until ready to enjoy!
Yield is enough to satisfy 4 people. How many waffles depends on the size of your waffle maker.
- You can buy oat flour or make your own if you have a food processor. Simply put old fashioned oats into your food processor and turn it on until you have flour! Oats are gluten free on their own and for most people oats won’t be an issue. If you have a gluten allergy or are intolerant you can purchase GF oats. GF oats weren’t processed on machines that aren’t in contact with other flour processing.
- You can make your own 1:1 GF flour mix easily; however, if you want to skip that step I recommend Bob’s Red Mill blend.
- Aquafaba helps your waffles stay light and don’t make a rubbery waffle like apple sauce, bananas, chia, or flax will. I’ve tried all the variations and aquafaba has been consistently the best.
