Breakfast “treats” can be a challenge for people who are trying to follow a gluten-free diet. We all know that sometimes the quality of bread-like gluten-free products falls short of their regular counterparts. But that is not always the case. With a little help from a box of King Arthur Flour’s Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix, you can whip up a batch of Cinnamon Maple Waffles. Your gluten-eating friends just might not believe that they are gluten-free.
I picked up a box of the gluten-free all-purpose mix when I was at Earth Fare this past week. I was trying to come up with a new recipe and was searching the shelves when I spotted the box. I was immediately drawn to the recipe for Cinnamon Streusel Coffeecake. Then I saw recipes on the box for both pancakes and waffles. At that point I knew that I had to buy the box and make some breakfast goodies. It was past time for me to have a break the routine of just “eggs” for breakfast.
I always put cinnamon in my pancake, waffle and French toast recipes. It’s just one of those things. It’s like it is mandatory in my kitchen – you know? So, I made a few modifications to King Arthur Flour’s recipe. I added cinnamon to the recipe, reduced the milk a little, added maple syrup, and increased the amount of vanilla.
These little treats are great topped with more maple syrup. They can be adapted for dinner – just add some chicken for chicken and waffles. Dessert? Add fresh fruit and some whipped cream. Or ice cream and chocolate syrup. Who knew that waffles could be so versatile?
