One thought on “Cornmeal Walnut Waffles

  1. Mary says:

    You can definitely tell this is a healthy waffle — but it’s good. It took a bit of time for the batter to thicken, but I used this time to heat up the waffle iron and get everything else ready. For the gluten free vegan, I prepared it exactly as directed, but then for the rest of us, I did add a bit of flour to give the remaining batter a bit more of the customary feel I’m used to. We served warm maple syrup on both versions. We think we will try this with almond meal, also. My gluten free vegan daughter suggested we try this without any sweetener, and add dried sage to make it a savory option for dinner.
