Brunch at Home – Coconut Oil Gluten-Free Waffles

June 28, 2015

Going out to Sunday brunch is one of my favorite things to do in life.  But when household budget constraints dictate that we need to skip my favorite past time, I do my best to create the Sunday brunch experience at home.  One of my most successful endeavors has been coconut oil gluten-free waffles.  I found that I actually prefer the gluten-free rice flour mix by Pamela’s above all else (and I don’t even have a gluten allergy).  I also found that adding coconut oil to the mix instead of vegetable oil gives the waffles a nice and unexpected flavor.  Add to that fresh sliced strawberries, homemade whipped cream, and real maple syrup and we’re talking gourmet style brunch!

These are coconut oil gluten-free waffles.

I follow the recipe on the bag of Pamela’s Pancake and Waffle Mix.  The recipe will tell you it makes three waffles, but I don’t find that to be the case.  I have to double it to make three waffles.  Substitute coconut oil for the vegetable oil and feel free to be generous.  Also, I don’t bother separating the eggs and whipping the egg whites.  I’m not a woman who has that kind of time and I never felt it made a difference.

These are ingredients to make coconut oil gluten-free waffles at home.

Be sure to spray your waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray.  I cook the waffles on medium heat.  Once finished, they should come right out of the iron with a fork.

Making homemade whipped cream is a breeze and you can do it in about two minutes using a motorized whisk like the one seen below.  Just pour in heavy whipping cream and a generous amount of powdered sugar.  You can also add a little vanilla too!

Voila!  Turn on some bossa nova (my favorite Sunday morning music choice) and enjoy your coconut oil gluten-free waffles!
