Lentil Crêpes and Waffles – vegan, gluten-free

  We love pancakes, crêpes and waffles and we have lots of recipes for them here at REAL. Recently after interviewing Chef Ramses Bravo about his cookbook Bravo Express, I learned that crêpes can be made with just lentils and water. We make crêpes from raw Buckwheat and water, as well as with Garbanzo Bean…

Blueberry Better-Than-Bran Muffins, Vegan, Gluten-Free, SOS-Free

This is a hearty muffin recipe. This recipe does not use an All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour that typically contains starches. Instead, only whole grains are used along with a little Garbanzo Bean Flour. Ingredients: 1 cup Rolled Oats or Steel Cut Oats (or Oat flour) 3/4 cup Millet (or Millet Flour) 1/4 Flax Seeds (or…

Banana Peanut Butter Custard Cream

Not only can this recipe be used as a rich spread for pancakes or crepes but it makes a delicious, quick dessert. Ingredients: 2 tablespoons peanut butter 1 ripe banana (fresh or frozen) 6 tablespoons…

Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles

I am done with buying flours! I grind my own in my Vitamix. Millet and Steel Cut Oats grind up well and make wonderful waffles. Serve with Berries, Fresh fruit or Jam. Ingredients 3/4 cup steel cut oats, dry, uncooked 1/4 cup millet, dry, uncooked 2 Tablespoons flax seeds (brown or golden) 2 cups water…

Buckwheat Crêpes, Gluten-free

  This is one of my favorites. Why? I start with raw buckwheat groats and make the flour by grinding them instead of buying buckwheat flour already ground. It’s fresher tasting and more flavorful. Toasted Buckwheat, also known as Kasha will also work. Toasted buckwheat will make a darker, chewier crêpe.   Just make sure…

Cherry Almond Waffles

We love waffles and make them all the time. We have many waffle recipes on this site that are vegan, gluten-free and totally yummy. Some are crispy, some are soft and cake-like. Try them all! This recipe is especially good because ground almonds are added to the batter for a rich flavor. I got started…
