It’s so easy today to purchase any premade gluten-free waffle mix and ‘veganize’ it by substituting the eggs for flax or chia eggs, for instance. But if you are trying to avoid processed foods, the following recipe calls for only whole ingredients for the flour base: ground oats and almonds. The use of ripe bananas instead of flax or chia seeds gives it a naturally sweet taste and the aquafaba gives it that extra fluffiness.
Here’s how it’s made:
Vegan & Gluten-Free Waffles
- 2 1/2 cups Oats (Gluten-Free)
- 1/2 cup Almond meal
- 1 tsp Baking Soda (Aluminum-Free)
- 1 Tbsp Tapioca or Corn Starch (Organic)
- 2 ripe Bananas
- 1 cup Filtered water
- 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/4 cup Aquafaba*
- 1 Tbsp Vanilla
