Gluten-free waffles and Flapjacks – no kidding!
Gluten-free baking scares the heck out of me, seriously!
Gluten-free to me also means taste free, or at least to me! Wrong, I was really, really so wrong about this! The thing is, I don’t have to bake or cook with gluten-free products only, because we do not have health issues! The reality however is, that there are many people with intolerance and allergies to gluten! More and more emails in my inbox confirm this – people need help with easy recipes, that is still affordable and do-able!
I am no expert and I think most people who have gluten intolerance have been to a doctor and a dietician so they know exactly what to avoid and what causes them to have such discomfort. If you need more advise on this issue, do read this article!
The question that is posed to me often is: What cán I eat? Please Nina, we need gluten-free recipes! The most complete list of what you can eat I could find, is this one! Well, right here on My Easy Cooking, you will find many gluten-free recipes. Mealies are my favorite vegetable and guess what… it is gluten-free! So give these Low-Carb Beef Tamales a go, you will love it! How about these crunchy Onion rings without the gluten quilt? Even those with a sweet tooth does not have to feel deprived. This meringue Torte is just what the doctor ordered! Yes, and you can have your gluten-free Chocolate Cake too!
The problem is that many of the gluten-free products are expensive and not always available in the smaller “dorpies!” So, when I saw this easy two-ingredient recipe for crumpets or flapjacks, I just had to give it a go! Once I made the flapjacks, I thought….. hang on, let me try the same recipe with waffles! Wow, even better results. Two ingredients, really! YES, REALLY!
