The Best Gluten-Free Blueberry Waffles: No Syrup Required!

What it is about dreary, winter days that scream: Make Blueberry Waffles in the morning?!?!  This is exactly what happened to me this morning.  I went to bed the night before hearing the weather was going to be steadily getting colder … and colder … and colder over the next few days and having cold cereal just didn’t seem hearty, or right, on a cold winter’s morning.  So, I did what any other person would do – get out the waffle machine and get crankin’!

Being in the creative, foodie mood, I decided I wanted to make a recipe that requires no syrup … which in my mind equals loads of sugar …  because I have pity on the teachers that have to wrestle with sugar-crazy kids … and I didn’t want mine to add to the fray.  (Although, I need to probably be honest with myself – my kids probably don’t need sugar to be silly … it’s in their DNA!)  My supplement for syrup?  Blueberries!

This blueberry waffle recipe is my favorite because it is: gluten-free … includes nature’s sweetness with local honey .. and includes super-rich antioxidants, blueberries!  And, I cannot forget to mention that you could easily eat two of these and not feel bloated, or feel as if you ate a ton of bricks.  They are light and scrumptious … just like I like ’em!

Gluten-Free Blueberry waffles RECIPE

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 15 Minutes (*** to make the entire batch)

 


INGREDIENTS

INGREDIENTS FOR blueberry waffles

  • 2 tbs of unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of gluten-free flour
  • 2 cups of milk (*** you can use almond milk, lactose-free, etc.)
  • 1 carton of free blueberries
  • 1/4 cup of honey (*** choose a local honey; it’s always best!)

 

PREPARATION

  1. Get out your waffle iron and begin preheating it to the desired heat setting.
  2. Gather a mixing bowl and pour your flour into the bowl.
  3. Melt your butter and pour into the bowl with the flour.
  4. Put your eggs, milk, and honey also into the bowl with the flour and butter.
  5. Mix the ingredients until you get a smooth consistency.  Try to get as many of the lumps from the flour. (For a thicker consistency, lessen your milk … and for a thinner consistency, add more milk to the recipe.)
  6. Once you’ve obtained the consistency you like, fold your blueberries into the mixture (be careful not to burst any blueberry).
  7. Your batter is ready – begin pouring into the waffle iron and cook your waffles!
