For the longest time I was using the King Arthur’s Gluten-Free Waffle/Pancake recipe as a staple. It makes a great gluten-free waffle-nice and fluffy-really no complaints. One day I stumbled across The Minimalist Baker’s recipe for gluten-free vegan lemon blueberry waffles and had to try it out. The thought of delicious lemon and blueberry was too strong to pass up. The recipe didn’t seem to yield much so I decided to double it. I started gathering my ingredients, and yeah-I ran out of brown rice flour. No problem, I’ll just add more almond flour and toss in some coconut flour even though I’ve had the WORST luck with coconut flour). Ops, no blueberries…I’ll just omit them. ANYWAY, what ended up happening was the best waffle explosion in my mouth. Then I tried it as a pancake…Holy S*&T!!!! They were amazing. Although these are more time consuming that the King Arthur recipe, it’s well worth the time and long list of ingredients. Well, long for me…
To make the sprinkle version, simply sprinkle jimmies or non-pareils over them in the pan/iron. Ta dah!
Lemon Gluten and Dairy-Free Waffles/Pancakes.
***If you want to make these vegan, just switch the eggs out for an egg substitute***
1 1/4 c./ 280 g. Coconut Milk
1 t. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 t. Vanilla
Juice and Zest of 1 lemon
1/4 c. / 60 g. Melted Coconut Oil
1 c./ 140 g. All-purpose Gluten-Free Flour (I use Trader Joe’s or King Arthur)
1/3 c./ 45 g. Almond Flour
1/3 c./45 g. Coconut Flour (plus more for thickening)
1 3/4 t. Baking Powder
1-2T. Sugar (I used raw sugar)
Make sure your wet ingredients are room temperature. If not, the coconut oil will solidify when you mix it in. If this isn’t possible, just add the coconut oil after mixing everything else together.
So this is pretty easy. Add the vinegar to the milk for 5 minutes. Mix the wet ingredients, mix the dry. Then add the wet to the dry. LET STAND FOR 5 MINUTES. Check to see if the consistency is lava-like-just like normal pancake/waffle batter. If it’s too thin, add more coconut flour 1 T at a time.
Add fun stuff-blueberries, freeze-dried strawberries…you pick!
Cook as you wish-in a waffle iron or on a griddle.
Eat all the waffles and pancakes.
