Instructions: Mix the dry ingredients (except nuts) in a large bowl. Combine all wet ingredients and pulse in blender. Once wet ingredients are mixed, add the nuts and pulse briefly, just to break up the biggest pieces.
Pour wet ingredients over dry and stir with a fork until thick and wet. Place approximately 1 cup of batter in a hot, prepared waffle iron and bake til puffed and golden.
Well, the results are in. Kia was delighted and gobbled hers down happily after drizzling with a little maple syrup. Ry made grumpy faces and recommended more chocolate and that he would prefer his banana bread in loaf form. And so it goes. I found they were very soft and puffy, no crunch to the edges which I like in a waffle, but the flavor was great. I'll definitely make these again for my hungry little gluten-free carb lover.
I have this dream of someday producing a cookbook of yummy gluten and dairy free food. So I'll be experimenting with more of the same and will report the results to you here. Please let me know if you try any of the recipes and how it turned out for you!
