I have been asked for some of the recipes I use in my quest for comfort food that doesn't have dairy, eggs, wheat, sugar, and other fun things to eat. These are one of our favorites, and since I have recently started to introduce grains back into my diet--- sparingly and slowly-- I made these the other day!

"My husband, who is not Gluten Intolerant, and I have these every Saturday morning. He likes these better than ones made with "real" flour! This recipe is easily halved or multiplied, as needed. These are also excellent to use as sandwich bread, sloppy joe open-face bread, (better if you omit the sugar and use regular milk instead of buttermilk); strawberry shortcake, etc.
- 1 cup brown rice or rice flour
- 1/2 cup potato starch (NOT Potato Flour)
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup oil
- 2 eggs (or not...see notes)
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk (regular milk works, too) coconut milk or almond milk
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1-2 tablespoons ground flax seed (optional) or more
- 1 tsp vinegar or lemon juice if using coconut or almond milk
- Mix all ingredients together with a whisk, or use your mixer, (i think it works better with a mixer, fluffier waffles), and pour into waffle iron, in batches.
- Add a bit more milk if too thick or a bit of rice flour if too runny.
- Can be made without eggs, if necessary; just add a little more liquid to make up for them.
I use at least ¼ - 1/2 cup ground flax seed. add a bit more water or liquid if you use a lot.
I have made them with and without eggs, both are fine.Usually without eggs.
I use 1 13.6 oz can of Thai organic unsweetened coconut milk, or homemade almond milk, I have even made them with water.
I have added sugar or cocoa or other stuff, nuts, fruit, choc chips, etc. It mostly depends on what your waffle iron will do.
I use this to make onion rings sometimes.
