“How in the world is it possible to make waffles for your littles when they need to avoid grain, gluten, dairy, eggs AND nuts?! It feels impossible, but it’s not anymore! This recipe is completely allergy-friendly, yet embodies all the crispy perfection that waffles should have.” – Jennifer Robins

1. Preheat a standard (not Belgian) waffle iron. Keep in mind that the serving size of this recipe will vary based on how much batter is required to fill your waffle iron.

2. Mix all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl, stirring by hand to remove the lumps. Once the waffle iron is heated, be sure to grease it thoroughly. If not well oiled, your waffles can split apart when opening the iron.

3. Spoon batter into the iron, leaving room for it to spread while cooking. Allow the waffle to cook until your iron indicates it is cooked through, then carefully open your waffle iron and remove the crispy waffle with a fork. Repeat with remaining batter.

4. Serve with my Dairy-Free Butter and 100% maple syrup or honey.

FOR LITTLE HANDS: Allow your child to help mix all the ingredients together and stir. Older helpers may also spoon the batter into the waffle iron while supervised.
