As I mentioned in a recent post, my mother sent a waffle maker and her recipe for grain-free waffles. Martin ate these the last time we visited my parents and loved them. So I decided to disobey my own rule against non-stick surfaces (chemicals = bad) and make Martin a waffle breakfast this morning. He’s one happy camper!
1 cup almond flour
2 tbsps honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 eggs (my mother recommended 4 hen eggs or 3 duck; I ended up using 4 duck eggs, because they were small, as far as duck eggs go)
I started by brushing a thin layer of coconut oil onto the waffle maker. Next I mixed the first five ingredients well, to a pebbly consistency. Separately, I hand whisked the eggs. Finally I mixed the eggs into the other ingredients and stirred until smooth. For the first batch I poured too much batter into the waffle maker, and it overflowed. My technique improved with the second batch. You really don’t need to put in much more than 1/2-3/4 cup batter for an 8-inch waffle maker.
According to my mother, this same recipe makes good pancakes, to that would be a way to avoid the non-stick surface.
