I like cooking for individuals. It’s my major technique of exhibiting affection.

And whereas I’m all the time pleased to work round dietary wants, cooking for my youthful brother takes a bit extra consideration. Not solely is he lactose illiberal, he’s additionally allergic to gluten. (Sadly, this implies each single recipe from my mac and cheese cookbook is off the desk!)

Rather than see these dietary restrictions as inconveniences, I desire to see them as challenges. Or, in any case, an excuse to purchase and discover options akin to buckwheat, rye, and amaranth flours.

Gluten-free wafflesI’m significantly smitten with almond flour, also called almond meal. The taste and texture it provides to recipes is simply so candy and nutty. (Note that almond meal typically comprises small bits of the almond husk, whereas almond flour often constructed from blanched almonds.)

This recipe for almond flour waffles is one results of all this enjoying round with flour. They incorporate almonds in 3 ways: almond flour, almond milk, and almond extract. They’re bursting with almond taste and have a wonderfully crispy texture.

Gluten-Free Waffle BatterThis recipe can also be fully versatile with no matter flours, milks – or allergy symptoms! – you may be working with. I’ve made them with all-purpose gluten-free flour as an alternative of the almond flour and tapioca (Bob’s Red Mill makes an excellent one) in addition to with common all-purpose flour was I used to be merely cooking for myself.

I’ve additionally swapped out the almond milk for one more non-dairy milk or for normal complete milk at varied occasions, and used butter as an alternative of coconut oil.

Using tapioca flour, almond milk, and coconut oil, as this recipe is written, offers you the lightest, crispiest waffle. Swapping in butter, complete milk, and all-purpose flour will get you a extra conventional, bread-y waffle.

The actual taste and texture of the waffles will change relying on the components you employ, however it doesn’t matter what you do, all of it works and it’s all good!
