Happy Valentine’s Day: Gluten Free Waffles

Happy Valentine’s Day!

The Best Thing To Hold Onto In Life Is Each other…or so I woke up , wishing my dear husband earlier this morning. And while there was every temptation to reach out for some thing sugary and calorie laden for breakfast, I decided to go and make up with these wonderful Gluten free waffles!

Those of you who do follow me on various social media, have  perhaps seen my recent posts on low carb, sugar and gluten and keto friendly bakes. Well I must say that 2020 has begun on a much healthier note. Mind you not an easy decision to make  as I’m a Baker at heart and by profession,and now in the process of re working all my recipes to suit this change in life style, with the occasional indulgence of course.

The above recipe has been adapted form the Bobs Red Mill web page. I do love their range of various gluten free flours and almond meal that work fantastic in all my recipes. whilst the original recipe calls for the use of only gluten free flour, I’ve added in some almond meal as well and substituted the sugar with Swerve, which has now become my go to sweetener for my healthy bakes.

Go give these waffles a try with dash of maple syrup, fresh raspberries and a dusting of Icing sugar. Pamper your loved one’s a little and have yourselves a loved day!

Yes,I’ve done it all.I have been wooed,wined and dined in style on various Valentine’s with my darling hubs.However the one memory closest to my heart is my first Valentine’s with him  many years ago.We were newly weds and I was moving to live with him in the Middle East. Not knowing what to really give him ,I got him a bright Red heart-shaped pillow that had “I Love you”, embroidered in white, and I picked  up one for myself as well. He had planned a  special home-coming for me too.A table setting for two with a lovely meal all laid out , a dozen red roses, some bubbly  and a sweet little note stuck on the Kitchen counter that read “Welcome home Shy”.The simple joys of life that I cherish till this day.
