These waffles are pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. I took the originial recipe from “The Kid Friendly ADHD and Autism Cookbook” and then ran with it. Hey, I love to experiment and give credit where it is due!

Applesauce Waffles

1 cup GF Flour blend
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
3 eggs (separated if you have time to make the “fussy” version)
1 cup milk sub
1/3 cup applesauce
1-2 Tbsp oil (depends on your waffle iron. My “non-stick” likes the recipe to have a bit of oil in it)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

Fussy version: Blend the dry ingredients. Separate your eggs, whites in their own bowl, yolks in with the dry ingredients. Add milk, applesauce, oil, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir together. Let sit for 10-20 minutes. Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into batter. Bake on a waffle iron.

Regular Realistic version: blend dry ingredients. Dump the rest on top. Don’t bother to separate the eggs, what you think I have time for that?? Blend together. Let sit for 10-20 minutes while you give supplements, get kids dressed and attempt to do a little therapy before breakfast. Bake on a waffle iron.

Serve with syrup or plain. These are great the next day, heated or cold. If they make it that long! Makes about 10 squares.
