This was originally my pancake recipe but we've been using it to make wonderful waffles for a while now. It makes waffles that are nice and crunchy on the outside, yet fluffy on the inside. And the taste is out of this world topped with some fresh whipping cream (or whipped coconut milk), maple syrup and berries.
Delicious Grain Free/"Paleo" Waffles
2 cups almond meal (I use my own homemade almond meal/flour)
1/2 cup sparkling water ( I like to use one with Orange essence), you may use regular water but the sparkling water is what helps make them fluffier.
4 TBSP oil of your choice (if you use coconut oil, be sure to melt it first)
1-2 TBSP maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat your waffle iron. In a medium mixing bowl combine all of the dry ingredients and mix well. Then add the all the remaining wet ingredients and mix to combine. Next using a hand mixer beat the batter ingredients for 1 minute, this will help make a fluffier batter and better waffles. Lightly grease your waffle iron and place about 3/4 cup of batter (or the amount per the directions for your particular model of waffle iron). I cook my waffles for 5 minutes and they turn out perfect every time, but you will need to experiment with your waffle iron to find the amount of time that works best for yours. Remove from waffle iron and serve with your desired garnishes.
