When I get on a food kick, I tend to stick with it for a while. Lately, my kick has been waffles. It's the perfect breakfast to toast up and eat in a hurry before work. My first gluten-free waffles were delicious, but since they were made with white rice flour and coconut milk, they were better for a special weekend breakfast than for every day. So I set about to make a hearty "whole grain" waffle that I could feel good eating on a daily basis. The result? These Hearty Apple Cinnamon Waffles. They're high in fiber and low in saturated fats (but high in heart healthy fats). And with no added sugar, they're a great way to start the day!
Hearty Apple Cinnamon Waffles
1 cup millet flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup flax seeds
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 medium sweet potato, baked and pureed
1 medium apple, grated or chopped in a food processor
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- Mix all of the dry ingredients together.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix completely.
- Spoon evenly onto waffle iron and cook, in batches, according to the iron's instructions.
