PUMPKIN SPICE WAFFLES (GLUTEN FREE & DAIRY FREE)

Light and fluffy, these pumpkin spice waffles ooze autumn inspired flavours. They are perfect for a weekend brunch as you can make them ahead of time and freeze (take them out of the freezer the night before and heat in a toaster just before serving). Gluten and dairy free.

 

Gluten free pumpkin spice waffles

 

After last week’s experiment with butternut squash waffles (which miserably failed by the way), I was more determined than ever to create a winning autumnal waffle recipe.

I was very tempted to use my homemade pumpkin puree in this recipe but seeing that the last batch of waffles turned into a ‘waffle scramble’, I decided to leave it out and just use pumpkin spice instead. I ended up with light, fluffy waffles, which were polished off the plate in minutes (a great sign of a successful recipe, right?!)

To make these waffles gluten free, I used brown rice flour. Wholemeal flour (or plain flour) would work well too.

 

I’ve also used homemade cashew milk in this recipe (you can replace it with gluten free oat milk), which I think deserves a little post on its own. I’ve been meaning to make homemade nut milk for as along as I can remember but I just couldn’t bear the hustle of straining the milk through the nut bag and making a big mess with it all… So I decided to experiment with my Nutribullet instead. I loaded it up with soaked cashews (I soaked them overnight), water and a little dash of vanilla extract and ta da! I couldn’t believe how creamy, silky and smooth the milk turned out! And best of all – it didn’t even need straining. Homemade nut milk will save me a small fortune for sure (supermarket cartons are rather expensive here in the UK).

Healthfully yours,
