Gluten free waffles aren't hard to make; you really just need to substitute regular flour with a good gluten free flour blend.

To make some extra special waffles, try this recipe to serve around the holidays. The combination of nutmeg and vanilla makes for some wonderful smells in the house.

Try topping this with some fresh whipped cream, sliced bananas and maple syrup. Yum!

Tropical Traditions Gluten Free Coconut Flour

In the world of gluten free flours, there are so many choices that it can be hard to choose which one is best for you and your family. You could literally use a different flour for each recipe and achieve different results every time. After studying the nutritional benefits of a lot of the products out there, I came to the conclusion that to replace the benefits of whole wheat you need to use a whole grain of another kind.

Sorghum, Buckwheat and Quinoa are all good substitutes. They offer the high fiber and protein that our bodies need. Sometimes, depending on the recipe, these flours offer the nutrition at the expense of flavor and texture.

marissa_carter_Coconut_Palm_2_Thanks to Tropical Traditions, I have discovered a new flour that offers the fiber and protein needed, without sacrificing taste. I discovered by trying Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour that it added a whole new flavor dimension and texture to my recipes. It isn’t a whole grain, but it is a whole food, which means that the nutritional standards are still met. (more…)

It is that time of year. The time to bake and get ready for the upcoming holiday season. There are many places to get gluten-free baking products in Columbus, however, some are less expensive than the others.

kim_bouldin_holiday_cookies

Most successful gluten-free baking is done with a combination of flours instead of just 1 type of flour. There are many pre-mixed all-purpose gluten-free flour mixes out there, or you can mix your own.

Wal-mart on 23 (Lewis Center) has a nice selection of Bob's Red Mill flours, including sorghum, as staple in many gluten-free flour mixes. Wal-mart also carries Ener-G flours (rice, tapioca & potato) for under $4. (more…)
