Gluten-free Waffles

If you have a waffle iron that has been collecting dust, or you're thinking you'll need to get rid of it because there's no way you can ever have yummy homemade waffles again on a gluten-free diet, please, pull that waffle iron out again and clean it up (gotta make sure there's no gluten-residue)! Grab yourself a box of Arrowhead Mills Gluten-free Baking Mix. There is a wonderful waffle recipe on the back of the box (although I used less liquid than they suggested because otherwise it was going to be too watery...use your best judgment and just add the liquid slowly as you're mixing). We tried it a few nights ago and it is wonderful. We couldn't tell the difference between those gluten-free waffles and the ones I used to make with regular wheat flour.

Be sure you use Canola oil or Olive oil brushed on the waffle plates between each waffle you make, otherwise the waffles will stick to the waffle iron. We just use a basting brush for that purpose. It works quite well.

If you are looking for some really yummy syrups that are gluten-free, Maple Grove Farms (go to their FAQ's to find more information about Celiac-friendly products) of Vermont makes all sorts of flavored syrups. They even have a gluten-free pancake mix available!
