Waffles - GAPs Friendly , Grain, Gluten, Dairy & Sugar Free

This waffle recipe actually comes from a great blog run by another GAPs mum in America.  I have simplified it to our tastes but here is the original link: Cara's Waffles

We have these very regularly for breakfast (we even took the waffle maker on holiday) as they are the best substitute for a quick toast like breakfast I have found.  They are also great for Harry, who of course being a very independant 18 month old now wants to feed himself most of the time and without usual toddler fair like toast soldiers and bread sticks this gives us a few options.  

We have them with just plain honey, no sugar jam & organic butter, peanut butter banana & honey (my favourite) or just as a base with fruit and some kind of yogurt or thick kefir.  They are also versatile and have been lovely with home made chicken liver paté or Thomas' favourite as a Tuna & home made mayo with cucumber sandwich.  I omit the honey and use them as a pizza base too.  

They freeze quite well, but they definitely do well in the fridge if you make a big batch every few days and then just put them in the toaster to warm up for a quick breakfast or lunch.  As Thomas is at school this also gives us a "sandwich" like option for packed lunches.  

Basic Waffle Recipe
(makes about 3 in the waffle maker I have)

Equipment needed: waffle mould or electric maker, hand blender, bowl. 

3 eggs
2tbsp coconut flour
2tbsp coconut oil (or ghee/butter) melted
1tbsp honey

  • Turn on waffle maker or heat it on the hob if you have a manual one.
  • Mix ingredients all together in the bowl with the hand blender. 
  • Pour approximately 1/3 of the mixture into the mould and let it cook for a minute or so, or until golden brown.   
  • Repeat with all the mixture until its all used up.
  • Lather with favourite topping. 
.............then scoff and run off to school/work!

Be sure to read the instruction manual for your unit thoroughly. Different waffle makers are designed to cook waffles differently. Some people may tell you to coat your waffle maker with cooking spray. There's a good chance your manual will have different advice. If you bought your waffle maker in the last 5 years, chances are you should not use cooking spray.
