Hey! I was browsing through the internet trying to find out how to make some dairy free belgian waffles without using a lot of flour and that used almond meal since I bought it at Trader Joes the last time I went.
The only problem is I didn’t have all the ingredients to the recipe I found so I ended up taking out a few ingredients out, and add a few ingredients and modify different amounts to fit what I had at my house.I am a spur of the moment cook that will never have everything that a recipe calls for but I can make
it my own with what I do have!
So I concocted a healthy, Dairy-Free, sugar -free(NOT even use of artificial sugars in this recipe) Belgian Waffle Recipe that I call my Almost Paleo Belgian Waffle recipe where almond meal was the main flour and I used coconut milk for the liquid. There was no sugar or milk used and the taste was pretty sweet with a nutty, but not too strong flavor. The color turned out dark brown as you can see on the pic it is not burnt at all just turned out dark because of the almond meal used.
The recipe I attempted was at this link but I did not have coconut flakes or arrowroot powder so I came up with a way to make up for it.http://paleomg.com/almond-flour-coconut-waffles/
Here is what I came up with
2 cups of Almond Meal
2 ts baking soda
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 ts of vanilla extract
1 TB of organic raw honey
1/2 ts of sea salt
1/2 ts of cinnamon
1/2 cup of vanilla flavored coconut milk (you may add up to 1/4 cup of coconut milk later if batter is too thick)
2 eggs ( I used organic free range eggs)
1 banana (mashed)
I mixed all the dry ingredients together then in a separate bowl mixed the eggs, honey, milk, and mashed banana together.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together.
This mixture created 4 large belgian waffles and was gonna use the remaining mixture to make more belgian waffles but it looked as if it would not stretch to make complete waffles so I added 1/2 cup of almond meal, added 2 TB of all purpose flour, 1/2 salt, and 1 more egg to make more waffles. You can either play around with measurements or can repeat the whole process again. Whatever comes easier to you!
Make sure your belgian waffle maker was preheated and spray the waffle maker with cooking spray and add around 1/2 cup of mixture to the waffle maker. Normally in around 3 -5 minutes your waffle is done. I am using a toastmaster waffle maker and I know the waffle is done when the top of the waffle maker rises. I don’t know what kind of waffle maker you use but refer to the manual that comes with it.
This is great for those who are trying to avoid frozen waffles and cut down on the amount of bad ingredients. Use this batch to make your own freezable waffles!
