    We had waffles this morning using a very similar ingredient combination! ( I used brown rice flour) and it was my first time putting flax into the waffles. I love the idea of serving them with pureed strawberries!

    This sounds SO good. Now I need to get a better waffle iron – I have one I bought at Target for $7 and it works, surprisingly, like a $7 waffle iron. Which means it doesn’t get hot, so no crispy exterior. Kinda like steamed waffles – blah. I would love the quinoa flavor in this – yum. So tell me – does your Vitamix work really, really well? I have an Oster blender and while it’s pretty powerful, I am finding that it doesn’t always get my smoothies super-smooth. Do you notice a difference?

    @Alta (Tasty Eats At Home), I got my waffle iron the day after Thanksgiving for $10 – usually $50. It does make a huge difference when you have a good one. I love my Vitamix – it’s very powerful and gets everything nice and smooth. It even blended up the seeds in the strawberry sauce I used on these waffles.

    This is a neat coincidence- I made these last night for dinner! Every so often I make a batch and freeze the extras to have on hand. I used GF oats, brown rice, millet and amaranth. Delicious!

    Oh I knew these would be amazing! I love the red sauce dripping down the side – so gorgeous my dear =D.

    Amy – I’m fascinated with the idea of soaking grains. Apparently, it really makes the value of the grains, nutritionally speaking, much more available. This looks great and I will definitely be trying it! Not sure yet of my combo of grains, but heck, they all sound good. When I make waffles, I always make extra and freeze them; then when I need breadcrumbs, I toast and whirl them in the food processor. Or I also use waffles to make sandwiches (ice cream sandwiches are actually the best – just like the kind I used to have on the jersey shore, only now with gluten free waffles!)

    @Ellen Allard, I knew the bit about the nutrition but didn’t mention it because I don’t know enough to speak intelligently on the subject. :) I love your waffle ideas…I’ve been thinking about trying them with ice cream. We usually have a leftover waffle and I have been freezing them for bread crumbs…or for a snack. Great minds, right?

    This a very different recipe. It looks really good. I think I’ll give it try. What a great way to get ready for Christmas breakfast. I love the look with the strawberry topping!

    These look fantastic! We aren’t on a gluten free diet in my home, but I’m going to make this Christmas morning. I was put on a two week gluten free diet to look for food allergies,and I felt to much better. No true food allergies in the end, but I really felt better. I love a lot of your recipes. I’m going to start incorporating them into our week along with our meat free meal nights. Thanks!

    Merry Christmas Amy,
    Could the Belgian waffles be made as pancakes?
    I don’t have a waffle iron. Thank, Barbara
    p.s. they good soooo good!!!


    Amy Reply:

    @barbara, Yes, you can. Just make them with less milk – 1 cup instead of 1 1/4 cups. Check out the recipe I linked to for more details. :) Happy holidays, Barbara!

    My girls love the brown rice/oat combo. They wake up hungry, so I can have these on the table in no time. We usually eat them with a little maple syrup and whole strawberries on the side-will try to make them into syrup next time.

    I also purchased a very cheap waffle iron at first and took it back after the first use :)

    We make similar waffles with coconut milk. I agree they are very good!

    Thanks so much for this recipe! I used brown rice and rolled oats, and substituted unsweetened soy milk because that’s what we had. The waffles (and pancakes) turned out beautifully. This has definitely inspired me to incorporate different grains in our diet. We tend to be stuck in a wheat rut.

    Has anyone tried these waffles without the egg – since there is already flaxseed in the batter would I really need to put in anything more?

    I have a starch based recipe for egg replacer that includes tapioca flour, potato starch, xanthan gum, baking powder, water and oil – would that be a good replacer if one is necessary.

    Also, just curious are you using your vita mix to blend the ingredients throughout the recipe
    (we have one)?

    I’m dying to make waffles as that was my ‘thing’ to make for family and friends – lots of eggs and buttermilk made them delicious!

    Just one more question – regarding the Vitamix – should the blades feel dull or sharp to the touch? We’ve been using it for several months and we’re just wondering – do the blades need sharpening (and how much is that tool you need to disengage the mechanism at the bottom anyway?)

    Thank you……Cathy

    Hi! These were great waffles–we were amazed that there was no flour. Some confusion when I printed the recipe, it said brown rice though the recipe I looked at said oats. I had used oats and then added 1 T. of brown rice. Will try it with brown rice next time just to see any difference. So happy to have no sugar, too. Keep up the wonderful recipes! :)

    I wouldn’t try an Osterizer for any of Sue Gregg’s blender batters. I know she says they should work, but mine choked on MILKSHAKES. Vita-Mix works beautifully, though. ;)

    @Rachel R., I used my Oster to make them…it eventually died but for $24 bucks I couldn’t complain. :)

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I made them this morning and they were fantastic. We liked them so much better than the wheat waffles I used to make (we are only on our 3rd week GF).

    These waffles are amazing!! My kids (and myself) looooove them!! I have to triple the recipe and freeze them to keep up with the demand!! I’m wondering if anyone knows of any other gluten free/dairy free/sugar free soaked grain recipes like this for muffins, pancakes, etc???


    Amy Reply:

    @Marissa Wagenberg, I’m wondering why you can’t soak any recipe overnight and then finish it in the morning, leaving out the eggs & other things that would go bad?

    Did you see my yeasted buckwheat pancakes? They’re soaked overnight.
