Scary amounts of healthy

just-not-dinner-734

I decided yesterday to take advantage of my stuffy nose and stained my little wooden garden enclosure (the smell of stain is nauseating to me) and hit a couple of spots on the deck that had to be skipped last spring because of the growing flowers.  I also tore apart the aquarium, but ran out of juice on that about halfway through.  I suppose I better finish this post and get that done before the fish die from lack of oxygen!

Whenever I feel like crap, instead of going for comfort food, I go for good-for-you stuff.  My appetite is pretty much guaranteed to be non-existent, so if I feel like eating when I have a cold, flu, or something else, I make it count.  Hence yesterday’s breakfast.

I like to eat these with turkey sausage and some fresh fruit.

Multi-Grain Apple Cider Waffles

Makes 12 waffles

1/2 cup brown rice flour

3/4 cup tapioca flour

1/4 cup quinoa flour

2 tbsp amaranth flour

2 tbsp arrowroot starch

2 tsp xanthan gum

1/4 cup gluten-free oats

1/4 cup flaxmeal

1/4 cup rice bran

4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp kosher salt

2 eggs

2 cups apple cider

1/4 cup safflower oil

1 tsp vanilla

Stir together all dry ingredients in a large bowl.  In a smaller bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir well, until completely combined.

Preheat a waffle iron.  Spray both sides with cooking spray; scoop the waffle batter by 1/4 cups onto the hot surface and close the lid.  Cook until the steam coming out the sides stops.

I’ve never had a waffle I didn’t like, and those look awesome. And by the way…. you’ve been tagged ;-) http://tinyurl.com/ctaa5c

Those waffles look amazing. I will have to try your recipe on Sunday.
Perfect breakfast for a snowy morning in Calgary!

These are simply beautiful. Great loft and loads of nutrition. Great job! I’ll have to add these to my ever growing “to bake” list.

Sheri – Your counters look divine! I think I’m going to have to investigate the granite tiles with hubbie to see what he thinks. He’ll probably want to brain me, but it has to be cheaper than replacing the countertops! I’m so glad I stopped by!
