Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles with Berries
- 3/4 cup brown rice flour
- 3/4 cup arrowroot flour
- 1/3 cup teff flour
- 1/3 cup millet flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- Fresh berries + extra maple syrup, to serve
In large bowl, combine all dry ingredients – the flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Mix well and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, almond milk, coconut oil, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk until well blended.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until blended. Do not over mix. Set aside.
Heat your waffle iron. Once hot, give your mixture one final stir and pour onto waffle iron. You’ll need about ½ cup per waffle, but the measurement will depend on the size of your iron.
Cook until brown and crispy. Serve warm with extra maple syrup, berries, or whatever toppings your heart desires.
Bonus Tip: If you want to keep cooked waffles warm while you’re making the rest, place waffles on a cookie sheet in a single layer and keep in the oven at 200 degrees. These freeze well and are great to pop in the toaster for a quick snack, breakfast or brunch.
