Extra Crispy Waffles 2 Versions: Paleo or Gluten Free &amp; Vegan.

Extra Crispy Waffles 2 Versions: Paleo or Gluten Free & Vegan.

This recipe is BY FAR the most popular recipe ever posted on my website! I was tagged in thousands of instagram posts with peoples photos of these waffles! :)

If you haven’t tried them out- make sure you do!

——————————-

Waffles are my current obsession.. and I have a strong suspicion they will be yours too, when you see all the recipes I have coming your way in the next few weeks. Waffles make the most insane tasting sandwiches. When having multiple allergies, or trying to follow Paleo.. bread is usually the first thing to go.. Of course there are all kinds of recipes available to make bread- but I know personally that I usually just don't bother.

But waffles, I can find time for- I mean who can't find time for them? They take less than 15 minutes start to finish. So when I realized how incredible a waffle could taste as the bun to a burger, as the base of a grilled cheese sandwich (and SO much more) I went waffle crazy.

The 1st key to a perfect waffle sandwich is that the waffle MUST be Crispy. And not just crispy but extra crispy and they should be soft on the inside. Since I knew good waffle recipes can be tricky to come by..I decided to create 3.. I really can't stand the idea that anyone might miss out.

The second key to a perfect waffle is to use a waffle iron that makes super thin waffles. Sure, a belgium waffle maker will work..but I don't like them nearly as much.

Both recipes are extremely crispy and delicious! Pick whichever one works best for your diet/or allergies!

Paleo Almond Flour Waffles

1 packed cup Blanched Almond Flour (120g)

½ cup Tapioca Starch (70g)

2 tsp Baking Powder

2 TBSP Granulated Sugar (any variety)

¼ tsp Salt

1 Large Egg

¼ cup + 1 TBSP Mild flavored oil, melted Salted butter, or ghee (dairy or nondairy) (60g)

½ cup + 2 TBSP Milk (dairy or nondairy) (136g)

1 tsp Lemon Juice or Vinegar

Notes

To make this recipe EGG FREE : Replace the egg by using 1 1/4 cup Almond Flour and only use 1/2 cup of milk. Keep the rest of the recipe the same. Your batter for this version is going to be pretty thick- and your waffles are going to be crispy and soft on the inside- and ever so slightly gummy. I wasn't able to work around the slight gumminess 100% without the egg..but thought they were still very delicious.

Can’t have almond flour? Another nut or seed flour should work. (such as Hazelnut Flour, Cashew Flour, etc.) Coconut flour will NOT work. Sunflower seed flour tends to turn green when used with baking powder- theres a strong possibility that could happen in this recipe since I used a fair amount of baking powder.


Extra Crispy White Rice Flour Waffles (Modified Paleo)

1 ¼ cup Superfine White Rice Flour

1/2 cup Potato Starch

1 tsp. Potato Flour

2 tsp Baking Powder

2 TBSP Granulated Sugar (any variety)

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Oil or melted butter (dairy or non-dairy)

1 1/4 cup Milk (dairy or nondairy)

1 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice or Vinegar

Directions For Both Extra Crispy Waffle Recipes

  1. Pre-heat waffle maker.

  2. Mix all ingredients to create waffle batter.

  3. Spray griddle with oil and pour batter onto pre-heated griddle. Times may vary.

Recipe will yield between 4- 10 waffles depending on the thickness of each waffle you make.

NOTES
Instead of the Sorghum flour- brown rice flour flour (or white rice should) should work. Just don't use any flours labeled as "superfine" as they tend to soak up far more liquid and will throw off the proportions of this recipe.

The potato FLOUR in this recipe is essential (yes, its different than than potato starch) its what makes these waffles extra crispy. If you can't find any in stores order some online- I often get it from Nuts.com or Bobs Red Mill.. (Note: If you want to learn more about Potato Flour and how to use it- I have a whole chapter in my books about it..)

For the sugar- any granulated variety will work such as Palm Sugar, Cane Sugar, Sucanat etc
