Dairy Free Soy Free Waffles (or Pancakes)


*they look a little off because I add syurp to my batter, see alterations below



UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.




I received a waffle maker for Christmas and ever since then I have been making waffles like crazy. I put the basic recipe then listed some alterations I've tried out. *You can also use this recipe for Pancakes.

Basic Pancake or Waffle Mix




4 Cups Self Rising Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Beaten Eggs
2 Cups Water
2 Tablespoons Oil (I Use Corn Oil)

Makes 16 Waffles or 20 Pancakes (16 waffles might sound like a lot but these freeze and can be reheated in the toaster easy & fast, great go to breakfast or snack).

Directions

Mix dry ingredients first.

Then add in beaten eggs, oil, & water.






Spray waffle maker or pan with spray (I use Pam for Grilling, check yours for dairy & soy). Pour into waffle maker or pan. My waffles take around 6 minutes but your waffle maker might be different. Flip pancakes after they start to bubble.













Alterations:

*My husband came up with the idea to pour the syrup right in with the batter. This is a great way to feed toddlers waffles or eat them on the go, no sticky mess. I did this in the picture above.

*Another alteration I can give my husband credit for is cooking sausage and crumbling it up in the batter along with the syrup. So good! This is my favorite way to eat them. Probably would work with cooked crumbled bacon too. Also a great grab and go meal.

*Add of course you can add fruit (blueberries, strawberries, apples, etc) or chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life Mini Chips).

*Ok this one might sound odd but it was also good and your kids will love it. Pizza Waffles! What you do is cut the sugar in half or even more. Add garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and pepperoni chopped up. Then heat up some pizza sauce for dipping. My husband liked adding chopped red onion and green peppers but that might be too much for most kids.

Waffles are fun, easy, and very customizable.

Make sure to check all your ingredients (including syrups, butters, and anything you add into the mix like sausage, bacon, pepperoni, chocolate, etc.). *I use Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread for butter.
