Gluten-Free Waffles with Just Spices Pancake Blend

Gluten-Free Waffles with Just Spices Pancake Blend

Who doesn’t like waffles? Who doesn’t like cool things that arrive in the mail? I do, I do. Or wait, is it, I don’t? This is confusing to me in a double-negative kind of way. To clarify, I love both waffles and new vegan products to try out and here we have the perfect storm, waffles made with the newly available in the U.S. organic spice mix, Pancake Blend, from Just Spices. Because I’m kind of a rebel, I decided to use the pancake spice mix in waffles. (I just prefer waffles because, basically, waffles have a bunch of little maple syrup boxes already installed, unlike their flat cousins.)

The Pancake Blend is a mix of warming flavors – think aromatics like cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla – meant to enhance your pancakes and waffles but I can imagine using this spice blend in things like banana bread, sweet potato pie or even just toast. The scent is intoxicating, of course. I could imagine using this blend all winter in my baking. In these waffles, it adds a gently sweet flavor profile. These waffles are made to be fairly neutral in flavor, though, thinking that you will want to add more sweetness to the top in terms of maple syrup, vegan butter and fruit. If you want to up the sweetness of the waffles themselves, add more spices or maple syrup. A flavored milk would also be another option. I wanted to give people two options: the variation with oil is a bit crispier and more traditional than the one with applesauce but both are great.

Check out the exciting options at Just Spices. With recyclable containers and a commitment to quality herb and spice blends that reflect the company’s love for culinary traditions from across the globe, these spices will be a great addition to your cupboard or a fantastic gift.
