OK, it may not be the zombie apocalypse (yet), but these really are awesome gluten free French Toast style waffles that have become a staple in my house since gf frozen waffles are hard to come by in my area these days.
I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes I can make from scratch. But when I didn’t find what I was looking for, I was forced to make it myself! There are multiple food tolerances and allergies in my family, so learning to cook creatively has been a necessity. I also try to make at least semi-healthy choices whenever possible, plus as a working mom recipes need to be quick and easy – this checks all the boxes!
If you don’t have time to watch the video it’s two egg whites, one egg yolk, tablespoon of mashed bananas, about 3 tablespoons of ground flax, tsp of vanilla, & cinnamon to taste – viola!
You can top them like you would any other waffle or French toast – syrup, fruit, whipped cream, powdered sugar, whatever – I like mine dipped in syrup with a couple tangerines on the side.
