Mother's Day Almond Waffles, Gluten Free

Happy Mother's Day! We are playing hookie from church this morning to have a family day. My husband has been requesting waffles or pancakes, so I thought I'd make Almond Waffles, one of his favorites.

I have a Cuisinart waffle maker. The waffles are approximately 4.5" and this recipe makes 14 waffles. I make extras so I can freeze the remaining and pop them in the toaster on a busy morning. My husband likes traditional maple syrup, but today I had berry syrup made by Kodiak Cakes and it pairs so nicely with the almond flavor, pictured above.

Plug your waffle iron in and set to desired shade. I like a little bit more golden waffles.

Wet Ingredients
3 3/4 cups whole milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup avocado oil
1 table spoon almond extract
1/4 cup sugar
4 eggs

Dry Ingredients
1 cup blanched almond flour, I use Costco's brand. Great price for the amount of flour.
1 cup PG whole grain gluten free flour
2 cups Bob's Red mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tablespoons plus 2 tsp of baking powder

1 rounded cup of sliced almonds, add later.

Mix wet ingredients in a large bowl. Mix Dry ingredients in a bowl. Slowly add Dry ingredients to Wet ingredients. Mix well. Add sliced almonds.

Cook as prescribed by your particular iron.

Blueberry Bundt & Blueberry loaf

Preheat oven 425, you will need to reduce to 375 once you put them in.

Dry Ingredients
4 Cups Flour
(This is what I do to make it healthier -3/4 cup blanched almond meal, 3/4 cup Gluten free PG wholegrain flour, 2.5 cups Bobs Redmill Gluten free 1 to 1)
1 tsp pink salt
4 tsp baking powder

Wet Ingredients
1 cup avocado oil
4 eggs
1.5 cups sugar
1 cup plain yogurt (Reg or Greek ok, I prefer some fat 2% or whole)
1.5 cups sugar

3 cups blueberries, or berries of choice

Mix Dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix wet ingredients in another. Combine dry to wet. Add blueberries

Prepare pans by greasing each cups with butter and sprinkle lightly with sugar. 
Fill each pan about 1/2 to 3/4

Once pans are filled, sprinkle with sugar on top, very important! :) put in oven. If your oven is big enough bake both. If not, I bake my Bundt in the oven and my loaf in the toaster oven.


Bake for 35 to 45 min, golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool, dust with powdered sugar

Same recipe can be used for blueberry muffins, make about 22 using a #12 scoop
