Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Banana Blueberry Waffles
Last week, however, I was in the mood for a waffle with a little oomph. I wanted a little sweetness in them. So, I decided quite spontaneously to add a ripe banana and some blueberries to the mix, and the result was amazing!
Waffles are go glorious, and I know that you’re going to love this recipe as much as I do. And, if you living grain-free, this recipe is just for you, too.
My waffles are made with chickpea flour. I find that I can get a far crispier waffle with chickpea flour rather than brown rice flour. And, I like to lighten up my batter with a little bit of tapicoa flour, too.
This recipe for gluten-free banana blueberry waffles certainly is not as crisp as my usual recipe but they have an awesome texture all on their own. They have a mild banana flavour with the added sweetness of blueberries.
Make them for your next weekend brunch topped with almond butter, coconut oil or cow’s butter. They are gorgeous!
- Makes 5-6 waffles
- 1 cup of chickpea flour
- 2 tbsp of tapioca flour
- 1/2 tsp of baking soda
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp of vanilla powder or extract
- 1 cup of cow’s milk (do not use almond)
- 1 egg
- 1 small ripe banana
- 3/4 cup of blueberries
- 7 drops of vanilla liquid stevia (I love NuNatural’s)
- 1/4 cup of oil to grease waffle maker
- In a blender (I like using my Vitamix), pour in the chickpea flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla, egg, milk, stevia and banana.
- Blend the waffle batter until it is very smooth.
- Heat up your waffle maker. My waffle maker goes up to a setting of 7; I like to place my waffle maker temperature at 6. So…in essence, set your waffle maker to a hot setting.
- Really oil up your waffle maker forms using a pastry brush. Make sure the form is really greased!
- Pour in some of the batter into each waffle form. Before you close the lid, drop in some blueberries onto the top of each waffle.
- The waffles will cook for varying amounts of time; it all depends on your waffle maker. Mine take about 4-5 minutes.
- Using a fork, ease the waffles out of the waffle forms. Be gentle; these waffles are delicate.
- Top the waffle with almond butter, some other nut butter, coconut oil or cow’s butter. If you don’t live sugar-free, go wild!
