Gingerbread Waffles

grain free gingerbread waffle recipeOk, so tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I know that I should be thinking about roasted turkey and sweet potatoes…but instead I’m making a batch of Grain-Free Gingerbread Waffles. Heehee, go figure.

Have you noticed how stores are putting out the Christmas stuff and playing those holiday tunes earlier and earlier each year? I saw Santa decorations a few weeks before Halloween this year…so it’s no wonder that it feels like tomorrow should be Christmas rather than Thanksgiving. I’m all holiday-confused now!

We always eat these gluten-free waffles on Christmas morning, after opening gifts. They are soft and spiced, the perfect thing to eat when you want to feel festive and happy. It’s a bonus that the recipe contains zero grains and zero cane sugar.

Hopefully the kids don’t get too confused when I serve them Christmas waffles the day before Thanksgiving…Give these waffles a try and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

    Hi, sounds delicious but I don’t have a waffle maker :(. So would I be able to do these as pancakes? Would I have to change any measurements? Thank you.

      Hi Kristina,
      These would probably work fine as pancakes — give it a try and let me know how it turns out 🙂

      I make pancakes, and they are great. I didn’t want to buy a waffle maker
