Carob Buckwheat Waffles or Pancakes (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

"Got this from The Yeast Connection cookbook. I've been trying to find recipes that are candida friendly. This is great and even includes directions to quickly make nut milk for the pancakes. If you don't have vitamin C crystals, I used aluminum free baking powder (I think 1 1/2 tsp?). You might want to add a bit of stevia to make it sweeter. I tried 2 tsp and it needed more (of the blend). My boys ate it up with powdered sugar on it, but we're not supposed to eat that! Cooking time depends upon your waffle iron."

Ready In:
4-6 waffles




  • Preheat your waffle iron.
  • Pour the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the starch, carob powder, salt and chopped nuts.
  • In the blender, grind the remaining nuts to a fine meal. Scrape the bottom and sides of the jar; add 1 ¾ C boiling water, vitamin C crystals, oil and vanilla; blend for one minute.
  • If using optional eggs, mix yolks (if desired) into the batter and beat the whites, in a small bowl, to soft peaks. Use a rubber spatula to fold them into the batter (in the next step).
  • Pour the liquids over the dry ingredients. Whisk lightly until the mixture is blended.
  • Combine the remaining ¼ C boiling water with the baking soda (it will foam up). Stir to dissolve and whisk into the batter.
  • Use a measuring cup to pour 1 C batter into the heated waffle iron. Cook until done.
  • If making pancakes, it makes 12-15 large ones.

I am a Christian wife and mother of 3 kids. Since my DH's high cholesterol, we've been eating better. I never used to like cooking. Since eating better, I've liked learning and preparing new recipes. My kids haven't reconciled themselves to the new eating yet. I grind my own grain and make all my own breads.?Working 2 hours a day in the local high school lunch room.??I am homeschooling my high schooler.? ?Also found out 1 child has multiple food allergies (wheat, dairy, tomato, chocolate, etc) and another is gluten sensitive. So, we just started (July 09) eating gluten and dairy free. I've been busy with getting our house market ready, even though it's not the best time for that.?
