No matter how long you have been following a grain-free eating program, every now and then the craving for a slice of bread or toast is hard to resist. This waffle toast is really quick to make and a way healthier alternative to either regular or gluten-free bread, and if I have to be honest, much tastier.
A waffle iron is needed, brace yourselves because I’m about to start a rave review of one of my favourite kitchen appliance, my Cuisineart waffle maker. So, I know you are wondering to yourself why on earth a waffle maker would even be needed in a paleo household? It is a very valid question, truth be told I have used a waffle maker more since turning paleo than ever before, actually my previous one burnt out from overuse. The Cusineart I bought about a year ago is absolutely brilliant, the best part being the removable plates which can be popped into the dishwasher for easy cleaning (this is not a endorsement, just me sharing a fab kitchen gadget tip with all of you!)
Combine almond flour, eggs, gluten-free baking powder and herbal salt in a bowl.
Give everything a good mix up with a whisk.
Using the measuring cup to ensure equal quantities, pour the batter onto the hot plates and cook until the waffles are a gorgeous golden colour. Remove them from the waffle iron using a silicon spatula so as not to scratch it and place the waffle upside down on the plate (looks better). Smear with a big fat dollop of grass fed butter and enjoy as you would a slice of toast.
- Heat the waffle maker and spray olive oil
- Once the heat indicator light turns green, using the 1/3 measuring cup share the batter between the bottom two trays.
- Cook until golden brown (there is no set time, just keep opening and checking)
- Flip the waffles upside down on the plate and serve
- Remove the toast with a silicon spatula so as not to scratch the iron.Eighty 20 Nutrition http://eighty20nutrition.com/
