Happy Friday beauties!
This week has just flown by for us. Anyone else feel the same way too?
Waffles are our dad’s favorite. Whenever we would stay at hotels that offered breakfast where they had those do it yourself waffle makers. He would always make one. Us girls liked our eggs and pancakes. But lately, we’ve been into waffles. Lori got a waffle maker for a wedding gift and we fell in love. We like that they are fairly quick and easy to make. Basically mix, pour and let the machine do the work. Simple. We like that.
After making a few other waffle recipes from our egg-free chocolate waffles to our protein coconut flour waffles to perfect fit protein squash waffles to soft grain-free waffles we knew we needed to make more waffles. We like thick moist, soft waffles. Making homemade waffles is so much fun for us. And better for you. Better than those frozen waffles from the store too. Really though… nothing beats homemade!
Grain-free flourless gingerbread waffles.
Actually a while back we asked you guys on facebook what recipe you would like us to make next. And gingerbread waffles was one of the ideas! And as you can tell we are turning more and more into waffle fans as they are super easy to make. If you don’t have a waffle maker we recommend putting it on your wish list 😉
The funny thing is we both started obsessing over and always wanting waffles. Pancakes are a given – we always want those. But waffles lately have really been hitting the spot for us. We also like the way the look. Your food has to look good too, right?
For these gingerbread waffles they are a perfect balance of ginger flavor and sweetness from the molasses. Love the depth in flavor the molasses provides. We like blackstrap molasses because it tends to have the highest nutrient content.
Perfect for enjoying with some coffee or tea. And of course maple syrup.
Or in our case a dash of powered sugar. WHAT?!? Powered sugar?!?! Before you head off and call the sugar police… we just used a little bit. A little bit of sweetness doesn’t hurt anyone.
Plus, we love the look that the little bit of powered sugar gives to these waffles. Have a little fun. And enjoy a little sugar. Shh we won’t tell anyone.
These waffles turned out to be amazing. The perfect soft chewy texture to the delicate flavor of gingerbread.
If you love gingerbread and waffles this recipe is for you. Even if you’re not a fan, we think these waffles will make you one 😉
