Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin Waffles: Sweet Liberation Episode 3

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin Waffle Recipe

Most people repel from the idea of cutting back on their sugar consumption because they believe that if they give up sugar, they also have to give up cakes, muffins, puddings, and breads.

Are you one of those people?

Do you believe that living sugar-free means living a life without sweetness?

Well…I’m here to let you know that you don’t have to give up chocolate, muffins, cakes, or even waffles. You can enjoy sweet, indulgent treats without eating sugar. You just have to learn how.

In this week’s Sweet Liberation Episode, I’m going to teach you how to many incredible gluten-free & sugar-free cinnamon raisin waffles.

You can top these waffles with butter, nut butter, sugar-free jam, or fresh fruit and sugar-free whipped cream. I also love to use gluten-free waffles as a bread base for an open-faced sandwich.

Waffles are still on the menu even if you live sugar-free & gluten-free. This recipe will please anyone: they’re crispy, light & delicious.

  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon + more to sprinkle on top
  • 1 cup of organic raisins
  • 1 egg
  • 1 + 1/4 cup of cow’s milk

  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients together.
  3. Add the egg and cow’s milk & whisk thoroughly.
  4. Using a pastry brush, oil your waffle iron liberally.
  5. Pour the batter into the waffle iron, and sprinkle the top of the batter with cinnamon and raisins before you close the lid to cook the waffles.

    Can you substitute the cow’s milk with almond milk?? Just curious. Thanks!!

      Thanks for your question! I tried to use nut milks before, but the waffles really don’t turn out well — they actually don’t brown. If cow’s milk is an issue, you can also try rice milk; however, some rice milks may alter the taste of the waffles. My next experiment will be to use coconut milk. Fingers crossed!
