Gluten-Free Gingerbread Waffles what could be better on a cold winters day. YUM!! However, if you are like me you will adore these gingerbread waffles. Needless to say, this is my version of a Swedish Pepperkaka but in Waffle form. In any event, inspiration to create this recipe came after I made my Pepperkakor cookies. All in all, these Pepperkakor Waffles are the bomb. In conclusion, they are a little more mild version of a German gingerbread.
This has a wonderful sweet taste of cinnamon with a little ginger, clove, and cardamom in the background. These waffles are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. What a wonderful and delicious way to begin your day full of warming spices and aromas that will bring the holiday to mind. Just add a small cup of coffee, and a couple of Maple Turkey Breakfast Sausages and you have a complete breakfast.
In all honesty, I highly suggest that you use unsweetened coconut milk, cassava flour, coconut nectar, cardamom spice, and even a heart-shaped Waffle Iron which can be found on Amazon. In fact, when you order waffles in Sweden they often come heart-shaped.
You will need to make coconut buttermilk. Find the recipe here. However, I highly suggest you read my blog post on Cassava Flour Information to learn more about this ingredient. Furthermore, these pancakes go extremely well with Dairy-Free Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Syrup. In any case, buttermilk syrup goes well with any pancake, waffle, or crepes.
