From one waffle recipe comes another. Wanting to make our Fruity Waffle recipe but out of most of the essential ingredients, I made this new version with what we had on hand. Gary says it’s his favorite (but he says that a lot!) He also said it reminded him of his pre-vegan days long ago when he used to eat Apple Jacks, a breakfast cereal made by Kellogg’s targeted to children and sweetened with lots of sugar. These waffles are sweetened naturally with apples and raisins and they are delicious!
1 1/2 cups organic corn flour
1 cup all purpose gluten-free flour (We use Bob’s Redmill)
2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds
2 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup raisins
1 organic apple
2 1/2 cups water (separated)
Grease and preheat a waffle iron.
In a small bowl beat the flax seeds in 1/2 cup water. Beat in vinegar.
In a large bowl add the flours.
Core and chopped the apple into small, 1/4″ pieces. (Peel apple first if not organic)
Pour the flax seed mixture and 1 cup of water into the large bowl with the flours. Mix well. Add in the last cup of water to make a thick batter. Stir in the apples and raisins.
OPTIONAL: Batter may be blended before cooking if you prefer. We like to leave it with the chunky bits of fruit in it.
Let set for 5-10 minutes before pouring batter in the waffle iron.
Cook for about 15 minutes or until waffles are browned and crispy on the outside.
