Gluten Free Gingerbread Waffles for a Snowy Day

I am not quite done with holiday flavors as they are perfect for cold snowy days like today. I topped the waffles with warm cranberry compote and some pomegranate seeds, but you could serve them with butter and maple syrup.


4 tbs. coconut oil, melted

2 cups of gluten free flour of your choice (store bought or I use this recipe:

1/2 tsp. xanthan gum if you mix does not contain it

1 tbs. baking powder

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the gluten free flour, baking powder, baking soda, flax seed, salt, ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and brown sugar.
