Chocolate and Walnut Gluten-free Waffles

Every time I visit the supermarket I take a look at the gluten-free cookies in the health market area.  I eat healthy on a regular basis, but I do enjoy cookies and other baked goods on occasion. These chocolate and walnut biscotti from Pamela’s Products were delicious and inspired me to make chocolate and walnut gluten-free waffles the next weekend morning.

These gluten-free waffles are easy and delicious

Chocolate and Walnut Gluten-free Waffles

Ingredients (makes 4 large waffles)

1 1/2 cups pancake mix (I used Pamela’s Products Baking & Pancake Mix)

1/2 cup roasted walnuts, chopped

3 tbsp good quality, unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Ah!laska Organic Baker’s Cocoa, it is gluten-free!)

2 tbsp ground flax seeds (to give this fun breakfast a boost of fiber)

2 eggs

3/4 cup of water

1 tbsp oil (I always use olive oil because it is what I always have at home but it also gives my baked goods a nice bite)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

I am sure there is a better way to do this, but on a Sunday morning when I am making this fun breakfast for us adults, as well as a healthier one for the baby, the best way to make these is by mixing all ingredients and throw the batter into a hot waffle iron. When it beeps they are ready.

* Make sure you pour maple syrup over these, the unsweetened cocoa makes these on the slightly bitter side, but the syrup sweetens them to just the right level. You could substitute the eggs for 2 cups of apple sauce for a sweeter, and vegan, version.
