Easy gluten free waffle recipe using cassava flour which is also a grain free option that doesn't require any special preparation.
Preheat the waffle iron and lightly coat with ghee.
Mix cassava flour, baking powder, and sea salt together in a bowl. Set aside.
In another bowl, beat eggs yolks and date syrup until thoroughly mixed. Add vanilla, melted butter and milk and combine with a whisk.
A few ladles at a time, add the liquid mixture to the flour and whisk until just blended being careful not to over mix.
In a third bowl, beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until soft peaks form.
Gently fold in the whipped egg whites into the batter being very careful not to over mix.
Ladle just enough batter to just cover the grid of the waffle iron. Close the waffle iron lid and cook until light brown.
Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers for quick breakfasts or snacks!
Please do not substitute honey for the date syrup in this recipe. Baking or cooking with honey is not a healthy practice.
Feel free to use another whole sweetener if desired such as maple syrup or sucanat if you are not avoiding disaccharide based sweeteners.
Do not substitute granular date sugar for the date syrup as date sugar does not dissolve well.
