My youngest son gave me a waffle maker when he was little as a Christmas gift one year. A couple Christmases later, he gave me yet another waffle maker. He REALLY likes waffles!
So, one of our family traditions is homemade waffles on Saturday mornings when our sporting schedule allows. My favorite homemade waffle recipe is from King Arthur Flour. Now that I’m on a low fodmap diet, I really wanted to keep our sleep-in-Saturday breakfast tradition without sacrificing taste or texture of our favorite waffles (or making a separate batch for myself).
With just a few modifications to our old trusty recipe, we are all able to enjoy our morning waffles without worry of my tummy going on strike. Here’s how.
gluten-free, lactose-free, low fodmap
Adapted from King Arthur Flour
- 2-1/4 cups GF, AP flour (like Bob’s Red Mill)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour (if you can tolerate it)
- 2 tsps baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 Tbs sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1-3/4 cups of lactose-free cow’s milk + 2 tsp Bragg’s apple cider vinegar, stir and let stand for 5 mins.
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter, cooled
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Mix dry ingredients. Whisk together wet ingredients. Combine and whisk for 10 secs until just combined. The batter will be thin and bubbly.
When your waffle masker is warm, pour batter in evenly until most of waffle dents are covered. Do not over fill. Close and wait until the “ready” light comes on. I found these cool quicker than the regular recipe so keep a close eye. Remove waffle when ready and place on a wire cooling rack.
Makes 5 large round waffles.
Serve with fresh berries and 100% pure maple syrup to stick to low fodmap.
Hubs review was this: “These are good hon. I wouldn’t have known they were gluten free.”
Note: I use an Oster brand, non stick waffle maker that spins (like the ones in hotels), and it works fantastic without any yucky non stick spray. If you have trouble with sticking, feel free to grease up your waffle maker however you please.
