Belgium-Style Gluten-Free Waffles are a terrific and healthy way to start your morning

Gluten Free Belgian Style Waffles

Gluten free Belgian Style Waffles may not sound exciting, but once you try this recipe, you may not go back to the original recipe cousin. Even without the gluten, the additional baking powder causes the waffle to rise, giving those deep pockets for fruit or syrup.  As you’ll see in the ingredient list below, we’ve converted the measurements to weight in grams.  Weighing the ingredients provides much better control over the finished product.

More research needs to be conducted, but some experts say a gluten-free diet, including these Gluten Free Belgian Style Waffles might also be a benefit to those who haven’t been diagnosed with a gluten-related medical conditions.   Food Nation Radio spoke with Dr. William Davis, author of “Wheat Belly” who provided insight as to why the instances of celiac and gut-related diseases have increased dramatically.

INGREDIENTS

225 grams of gluten-free flour

12 oz whole milk
1tsp real vanilla extract
112 grams butter, melted
30 grams plus a pinch of sugar

METHOD

Dry Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder. Stir with a whisk to aerate (instead of sifting).

Wet Ingredients

In another bowl, combine egg yolks, milk, melted butter and vanilla.
In a standing mixer or with hand mixer, whip the egg whites until peaks just start to form. Add the sugar, slowly and whip until stiff peaks form.

Making the Batter

Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Mix until incorporated. Do not overmix or gluten will form and make your waffles dense!
Fold in egg whites carefully to avoid deflating them.
Make waffles with your waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions. Serve with softened butter and maple syrup or fruit compote.
