Gluten-Free Blueberry Waffles

Decadent AND relatively healthy?!?! Yep! These blueberry waffles…. yummmm… They're crisp on the outside, warm and fluffy on the inside, and bursting with blueberries. These waffles would be delightful topped with some maple syrup. But oh no!… we added blueberry syrup, oat streusel, and fresh blueberries for a waaaaaay over the top breakfast. Sometimes you just have to go all out!


Gluten-Free Blueberry Waffles
4 eggs, separated
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup white rice flour
1/4 cup millet flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup ground flax meal
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh blueberries

for the blueberry syrup…
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup maple syrup

for the oat streusel…
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter, melted

To make the oat streusel…
Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix all streusel ingredients in a small bowl. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Spread the mixture on the baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

To make the blueberry syrup…
Place blueberries and syrup in your blender and puree until smooth. I used my magic bullet mini blender.

To make the waffles…
Heat your waffle maker.

In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to whip egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sour cream, melted butter, lemon zest and juice. Sprinkle the flours, flax meal, sugar, baking powder, xanthan over the egg mixture and whisk until smooth. Use a rubber spatula to fold the egg whites into the batter until evenly combined. Carefully fold in the blueberries.

Spoon 1/2 cup of batter onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown. Serve with blueberry syrup. Sprinkle on some oat streusel and some additional fresh blueberries.
