Grain-Free Waffle Toast

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.
