Vegan Gluten-Free Multi-Grain Waffles {also Low-FODMAP}

Vegan Gluten-Free Multi-Grain Waffles {also Low-FODMAP}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I know I have a tendency to go on and on about how much I love pancakes. I'm a pancake girl! But I decided to try something I haven't had in ages: waffles. This gluten-free waffle recipe from Food.com was just the thing to try. Wow, I have been missing out! Something that waffles have that pancakes don't? Crispiness. Drizzled with just a tiny bit of pure maple syrup, I was in crisp waffle heaven.

I made my own tweaks to the recipe, as I am wont to do. I was glad to read that this particular waffle recipe calls for eggs, but they are not really necessary. Hooray! I left those eggs out and used my own multi-grain flour blend (which is free of xanthan and guar gums). Now, I made these before I discovered my potato intolerance, so I have yet to come up with a suitable potato-free version, but I am working on it. As for now, I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk (I like unsweetened almond milk)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups Gluten-Free Multi-Grain Flour Blend
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup oil (I used extra-light tasting olive oil)

Directions

  1. Turn waffle iron on to heat up.
  2. Blend together the non-dairy milk and lemon juice in a medium bowl and let sit about 5 minutes to sour.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  4. Stir the oil into the milk mixture. Slowly add the milk mixture to the flour mixture while stirring to prevent lumps. Stir until well-blended and smooth (batter will be thinner than pancake batter).
  5. Spray waffle iron with cooking spray, if needed, and pour batter into iron according to manufacturer instructions. (I have an 8" round waffle iron and used about 2/3 cup batter).
  6. Close waffle iron and cook until steam stops streaming out.
  7. Remove with a fork and serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar and fresh berries.
