Homemade Date-Sweetened Waffles

Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Refined sugar-free

  • prep time: 25 minutes
  • cook time: 10 minutes
  • total time: 35 minutes
Servings: 4
  • 1 3/4 cups of gluten-free 1:1 flour (or 2 cups of all purpose flour if not GF)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp Joolies date syrup
  • 2 cups oat milk or nut milk
  • 6 tbsp oil (avocado or vegetable) 
  1. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Crack the eggs and separate the yolks from the whites (be sure to SAVE both!). 
  2. Beat egg whites on high until white peaks form and set aside. Note: they should be stiff but not dry. 
  3. In a small bowl beat the egg yolks, then add in the milk and date syrup. Pour into the sifted flour mixture and mix until just combined. Then, add in the oil and mix until well incorporated. Note: if using a GF flour, the batter will be heavier. 
  4. Fold in the egg whites, being careful not to over-mix. 
  5. Heat waffle maker and cook for 5 minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings and drizzle with Joolies date syrup!
