delectable wheat-free waffles
I’ve been holding onto this Cassava Sorghum Waffle recipe for a while, but happy to get it out to you…finally!
We have cut out a lot of grains from our diet and when it comes to baking I’ve pretty much-eliminated wheat flour. Alex and I have been trying to sort out all of our health issues or sensitivities and making changes in our diet that benefit us! Anything from skin issues to digestive problems can be solved with diet. We will always be on the road to optimal health, but every day we learn something new about our bodies because we have gotten so good at being in tune with it tells us and listening to it. Wheat and grains are often contributors to health problems, so that’s why we have chosen to cut back.
I don’t see it as the least bit of a loss that we have removed most wheat and grains from our diet. As a matter of fact, I love a good cooking challenge, so this is fun for me!! When it comes to baking and bread, we simply have been eating less of them. I still love to bake so, I’ve been working with a bunch of different flours and figuring out what they do and how to use them. There is quite the science to flour! I really enjoy learning about it and creating new recipes.
I went through a banana chocolate waffle phase and this was my final waffle recipe. They turned out pretty awesome! Just look out how cute they are! Of course, it helps that I made mini waffles. Anything is cute in a miniature form!
These waffles are gluten-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, soy-free, egg-free, vegan, and can be sugar-free if you just leave out the maple syrup! We also like Lakanto’s Maple Flavored Syrup. It’s pretty close to the real thing.
I made a batch of Cassava Sorghum Waffles and kept them in the freezer and anytime I had a sweet craving I just put one in the toaster and put some chocolate on it! It’s a perfect treat!
You can top this wheat-free treat with anything you want! Berries, nut butter, syrup, jam, or ice cream…
My personal favorite is almond butter, banana, coconut oil, walnuts, chocolate chips, and maple syrup. It’s so YUMMY!!
Try out these Cassava Sorghum Waffles on your next lazy morning! Or tomorrow before work…
