I love waffles! These Buckwheat Gingerbread Waffles are healthy AND scrumptious. The 100% buckwheat flour is gluten-free and loaded with fiber. The recipe is low-glycemic. The only sweetener is a touch of molasses. This recipe can also be easily adapted to be dairy-free too. Substitute the milk for almond milk, and the butter for coconut oil.
I'm a butter, bacon and 100% pure maple syrup girl. No apologies!
The batter whips up in a jiffy. The gingerbread spices compliment the earthy flavor of the buckwheat. They turn out crispy on the outside and fluffy in the center. If you have any extra Buckwheat Gingerbread Waffles, they will last in the fridge for a couple of days or freeze nicely.
The double waffle iron from Waring Pro works perfect to make 2 full size waffles at a time. That way my husband and I can both eat them hot at the same time. You can find it or this Cusinart on Amazon.
If you love waffles you should also try my yeast-based Overnight Belgium Waffles for an amazing treat.
