Grain-free Freezer Waffles

Whatever I can do to eliminate the fuss of cooking/baking but still manage to have a healthy, delicious meal to serve is always my goal. I’m all about making the most out of my time spent in the kitchen since we only have so much to go around throughout the day. So what better than a breakfast that only requires enough time for me to pop it into the toaster, top, and eat!

These grain-free freezer waffles not only check every mark on a simple breakfast but they’re equally as delicious! These fluffy waffles use healthy, clean ingredients and are perfect with both sweet or savory toppings.

This recipe can become your new family favorite since you can have waffles any day of the week!

Tips:

  • This is my go-to mini waffle iron. It makes the perfect toaster-friendly size!
  • I suggest using a fine ground almond flour like this as it will result in a better texture.
  • If you don’t have avocado oil melted coconut will work as well.

Gluten-free/Grain-free/Dairy-free/Soy-free

Yields: 8 small waffles

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: about 10-15 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 c avocado oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 c fine ground almond flour
  • 1/2 c tapioca starch
  • 1/4 c coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Whisk the eggs, oil, vanilla, and apple cider vinegar together.
  3. Add the almond flour, tapioca starch, coconut sugar, baking soda, and sea salt and mix until well combined.
  4. Pour a small amount into the center of your pre-heated iron. Note: these waffles will expand quite a bit so a little batter goes a long way. Don’t fill all the way to the edges as it will end up overflowing.
  5. Cook as directed by your iron and remove the waffle once it’s golden. Repeat for remaining batter.
  6. Serve warm and/or allow the waffles to cool completely on a wire rack before bagging/wrapping and freezing.
  7. To serve: remove the waffle from the freezer and warm in a toaster or tastier oven. Top as desired and enjoy!

Homemade Play Dough

Since we are all spending a bit more time than usual at home finding ways to keep your little ones busy requires a bit of extra creativity. As a parent, I like the challenge of coming up with new and exciting ways for her to learn through play. Truthfully, I don’t know who has more fun with the whole process of creating these activities and then playing/doing, me or Emerson. A simple activity that is easy to make and results in hours of fun is homemade play dough. I know, we spent a solid 2 hours playing with it after we made it, and for a 2 year old that speaks volumes!

Breakfast and cookies should ALWAYS be a thing don’t you think?!

One of our favorite gluten-free cereal and granola companies makes the most perfect museli for such a cookie. Seven Sundays‘ products not only add a healthy boost to any breakfast or snack as is but I love how easy they are to incorporate into recipes such as this one!
