Listen..just because I am mostly gluten free that doesn’t mean I should miss out on waffles and I like my waffles crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. These gluten free waffles with lemon and honey yoghurt don’t disappoint. Also buckwheat has a naturally nutty flavour which makes them extra yummy.
My favourite thing about most recipes on my blog is their simplicity. This one is the same. There is no over complication here.
This waffle recipe just kind of happened. I was making waffles for the kids. They requested pancakes and I said I could go one better and make them waffles instead. They were obviously thrilled. I recently got this waffle maker at a ridiculously cheap price on Amazon. I love you Amazon. I also love you, waffle maker. I cannot recommend it enough. It is absolutely brilliant. So easy to use and so convenient. It also doesn’t take up much space which is always a brucie bonus.
This version is vegan friendly because I really need to cut down on my egg intake. Seriously. I love them but this has got to stop. Even without the egg, we devoured these waffles and the fresh fruit made them even more yummers.
By the way, if you’ve never had buckwheat flour, it may take a little getting used to. These waffles are not the kind you get in dessert parlours. Those are great as a one off. I actually made some of those the following day and was flabbergasted with the amount of sugar in them! No wonder they taste so great. Anyway as I was saying, buckwheat flour is different to other flours and tastes nutty and earthy. So give it a try and see if you like it. It is a healthier alternative to waffles so do bear that in mind.
Anyway I was thinking today about all the changes I have been through over the past 2-3 years and all the small steps that I have taken to get to the mindset that I am at right now. I thought it may be an idea to share those steps with you to show how small steps can make such a massive difference long term. What do you think? I think smaller steps are not as overwhelming as say taking a massive leap e.g. no refined sugar forever.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this healthier recipe for waffles. Enjoy!
Gluten Free Waffles with Lemon and Honey Yoghurt - Gluten Free and Vegan waffles that are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Served with fresh fruit and a zesty yoghurt
Gluten Free, Vegan
1 1/2tbspLemon Juice
375mlMilkI use Oat milk
2tbspSugar of your choiceI use Rapadura or Coconut
1 1/4tspBaking Powder
1tspBicarbonate of Soda
1tspLiquid Sweetener of choiceI use Honey or Rice Malt Syrup
Maple Syrup, Agave Nectar, Rice Malt Syrup or Honey
Combine the milk and lemon juice in a bowl and set aside for 5 minutes until it curdles and becomes buttermilk.
Add the coconut oil to the buttermilk in a large saucepan and gently bring to the simmer. Remove from the heat and add all the remaining ingredients. Whisk until combined. Set aside for 5 minutes. Skip this step if you are in a rush.
Heat up the waffle iron and brush with some coconut oil. Ladle in some of the batter, close and cook until lightly crisp. This varies between waffle irons. Mine took about 3 minutes. As the waffle iron got hotter, that time was reduced.
Make the lemon yoghurt by whisking the yoghurt with the zest and sweetener.
Serve waffles with the yoghurt, fresh fruit and additional sweetener if desires.
