The Gluten Lovers Gluten Free Waffles

My son has recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (called Eoe for short). I will write more about his diagnosis in another post. It has been tough, and it has drastically changed his diet and mine (due to nursing). When i first got the list of what he cannot eat, my first thought was "Well, what CAN he eat?!" We have not done further testing to see if he has even more triggers, but for now we are avoiding:

So! As you can see, this is pretty overwhelming. Wynn is in feeding therapy with a feeding aversion, so he already wouldn't eat many foods..but what he DID like was foods with wheat and corn. Yikes! Therefore, my first priority in making new recipes for him was to find a bread product that actually tasted good. Almost all Gluten Free products I have found use rice and/or corn flour which he can't do. ugh. so! I had a lot of trial and error cooking, and i finally created the PERFECT waffle recipe that tastes amazing!! Whether you are gluten free or not, you will love these!

Gluten Lovers Gluten Free Waffles
1 Cup Bettes Four Flour Blend
2 Tablespoons Earth Balance Soy Free Butter (or regular butter, softened)
1 Tablespoon Safflower Oil
1 Egg or 1 Egg Replacer Egg (ener-g brand- 1 1/2 tsp powder mixed with 2 warm tablespoons water and set aside)
1 1/2 tsp Hain pure foods baking powder (gluten free)
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp sugar
3/4 cups of Silk original (not vanilla or unsweetened) Almond Milk or regular milk if diet allows

Preheat Waffle Iron.
If using egg replacer, pour mixed replacer in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer on low for 30 seconds (if using a regular egg, omit this step and add with other ingredients). Add all other ingredients except for milk. Mix on low for about 10 seconds until combined. Add Milk and mix on low for one minute, making sure all ingredients are fully combined and mixture thickens a little.
Pour desired amount into greased waffle iron. cook until waffle iron says they are done (mine shows a green light). These waffles will not turn dark brown, however, if you cook them too long they will become hard. They should be golden and crispy on the outside and slightly soft on the inside. These are so so good, and they even freeze very well! After they have cooled, simply place them in a freezer bag and put in the freezer. When you are ready to eat them, just take them out and reheat in the toaster oven or microwave. Success!! My daughter even likes them better that Bisquick waffles. Yay!

The finished product :)

Products you will need:

This flour does Not contain Rice flour or Corn Flour either! Almost all GF Flour blends contain Rice Flour. I finally found this one that doesn't and tastes awesome!! Yay!
I find this at Walmart, Whole Foods, Publix

Now THIS is how you make amazing gluten free waffles!!
