If you have spent anytime around my blog, or my social media, you will see that I am so in love with my Gluten Free Sourdough creations….Thanks to “Brice” my Gluten Free Sourdough Starter!
I was looking for a way to use the starter in more recipes, and I came across several recipes for waffles, but they all had off-plan flours. If you know anything about gluten free flours, then you know that whole grain flour does not product a very fluffy final product, and waffles are supposed to be fluffy, right?
I am starting to love a good challenge, regarding our limitations around food, and this was one that I wanted to get done. Not just because I miss waffles, but also because They can make a good substitute for slices of bread…you know, sometimes you just need a good sandwich!
Here is what I came up with…..
***I have included links to tools and products that I used in this post, if you choose to buy through any of these links I may receive a small commission at no additional charge to you***
- 1 Cup mature Gluten Free Sourdough Starter or if I have some dry, mature starter to sell, you can find it here
- 1 Cup untreated or distilled water
- 1 Cup of my gluten free baking flour blend
- 1/2 teaspoon Mineral Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Pure Monk Fruit Extract Powder (optional)
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda, we order all our spices we can through here.
- 1 teaspoon Glucomannan
- Maple Flavoring (optional), I like this kind or this kind
- 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce (1/4 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce + 1/4 Cup Egg Whites if you can tolerate eggs)
- 1 teaspoon Psyllium Husk
Mix up the Overnight sponge. Cover with a light cloth and leave overnight on the counter.
The next day add all your ingredients, except glucomannan and psyllium because both will need to be mixed immediately and completely to avoid clumping. Add those two, and mix with a whisk as you add them slowly.
I used a mini waffle maker like this one, and about 3 Tablespoons of the batter was just right for my machine to handle without a mess.
This recipe falls into an E setting on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, and I would recommend about 3 mini waffles as a serving. These also freeze well, and do not come out dry.
