Today we are making breakfast! Now, you can have breakfast for breakfast but we love breakfast for dinner. Either way, you will love the recipes I have for you today.
Hubby and I discovered about a year and a half ago that we are both gluten intolerant! It has been a huge adjustment for us because so many gluten-free recipes and products just don’t taste good! However, the recipe I have for you today is gluten-free AND delicious!
What can you make with a can of garbanzo beans and some rolled oats? Well, as it turns out, a lot of things but today we are concentrating on making gluten-free waffles! These waffles also don’t have tree nuts, milk or eggs so if you have a family with food allergies this is YOUR recipe!
We love waffles at our house and even before we found out about gluten intolerance, these were our favorite waffles! I have been making the same recipe for over 30 years! Super easy and scrumptious! The garbanzo beans provide protein but you’ll never know they are in the recipe!
I make my waffles in this Presto Flip waffle iron and I have never greased it! I ruined a lot of waffle irons and it turns out it was because I greased or sprayed them! The waffles always turn out perfect!
These waffles are yummy with margarine or butter and some delicious REAL maple syrup! But my favorite way to eat them is…
…with almond butter and fruit sauce. The fruit sauce is sooo easy!
