Gluten Free Waffles

We love these waffles!!  I got the original recipe from the cookbook "Life Tastes Good Again".  You can also find the original recipe here.  I did add some ground flaxseed.

3 eggs, separated
scant 1/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup oil
2 cup featherlight mix
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs baking powder
2 Tbs Flaxseed meal (optional)

Beat egg whites until foamy.   Slowly add sugar, and continue beating until the whites form soft peaks.

In another bowl, mix featherlight mix, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder, flaxseed (waffle mix).  Add . egg yolks, milk, and oil.  Mix well.  Fold egg whites into mixture.   Bake on a hot waffle iron.

TIP 1:  I make a mix so I don't have to measure all the dry ingredients every time we make waffles.  I mix together the: featherlight mix, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder & flaxseed.  Then when I make the waffles I use 2 1/4 cups of the waffle mix.  I 8 times the recipe and store the mix in my tupperware cereal storer.

Here are the amounts for 8 times to make the waffle mix:
16 cups featherlight mix
2 Tbsp + 2 tsp xanthan gum
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp salt
1/2 cup baking powder
1 cup flaxseed

TIP 2:  We at least double the batch so we have some to freeze for an easy breakfast.  We put in freezer bags with wax paper between the waffles.  We then re-heat in our toaster oven or you can use a toaster.



Hi, my name is Alysann. Could you tell me where I buy the "featherlight mix". Is it a special flour you buy or make?
