I made my gluten-free, sugar-free waffles with strawberries because Florida strawberries are in full season. Also because I think they look gorgeous for Valentine’s Day. Last, but not least, because since I tried this recipe it has become one of my favorite brunches.
Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Waffles
Although I don’t make much of a fuss about it, the truth is that I am already 14 months on a gluten-free and sugar-free diet. Because of that, these waffles were born. Now, they my family’s favorites.
I love them because I make them with both gluten-free all-purpose flour and almond flour. The almond flour not only helps you to be more than satisfied for more hours. It also adds a delicious texture to our waffles. They are crunchy on the outside, and soft, moist, and cakey on the inside. And since I bought my waffle maker, when I ask: waffles or pancakes? the answer is always: waffles!
Since adopting my sugar-free diet, I indulge myself twice a week with honey or maple syrup. When a recipe calls for sugar, which is not the case with these waffles, I make them with monk fruit. This is a natural sugar substitute that is calorie-free, does not affect the glycemic index, and equally important, at least to me: it does not leave any unpleasant retro taste.
So my waffles today, besides lots of strawberries, are sweetened with maple syrup, and to make them even more special, I sprinkled them with a confectioners sugar substitute.
How to Make Waffles without Gluten and Sugar
Although I made these waffles with Florida strawberries, the truth is that they go well with any fruit, tropical or not. I love the abundance of fruit because that is how I eat my first fruit serving of the day.
In my house, these waffles are a super-easy way to say “I love you”. Everyone likes them and they are so beautiful that everyone who eats them feels special, no matter the day of the year…
I usually make waffles on Sundays, but when you see how easy they are to make, you’ll see that you can make them any day of the week.
