Growing up, Friday night was Pizza Night and I lived for weekends full of waffles and pancakes. Well, when I went gluten-free I had to say bye to those childhood favorites. At the time, GF pizza just wasn’t the same and GF pancakes and waffles didn’t exist! Now, there are some pretty good store-bought brands (pictured above), and many companies have mastered the art of the perfect gluten-free pancake, waffle, and pizza mixes.
I’ve been on the hunt for the best gluten-free waffle mix. First up: Cup4Cup
What You Will Need:
1 Pouch Cup4Cup Gluten-Free Pancake and Waffle Mix
6 Tbsp Dairy-Free butter
1 Large Egg
3/4 Cup SILK Coconut Milk
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)
What You Will Do:
Pour Cup4Cup batter into a mixing bowl, and add egg, vanilla, and coconut milk. In a separate bowl, melt butter completely. Add butter to the mixing bowl and mix all ingredients. The batter will be thick, so if you don’t want your waffles to be super thick, simply add more coconut milk!
Pour batter into waffle maker. Let it cook for timed period, flip, and let cook again. Wah-lah!
** NOTE ** although I used dairy-free milk and butter, the waffles were NOT dairy-free, as milk products are included in the Cup4Cup flour.
Be creative and top your waffles with toppings of your choosing! I went with organic maple syrup, banana, strawberries, and Justin’s Maple Almond Butter. Delicious!
