What's for Breakfast? {Gluten and Dairy Free} Peach and Blueberry Waffles with Cinnamon Goo

I posted this previously. We do a version of this every Saturday if we can.We are going to whip up some today. I'd love to hear any ideas you have for breakfast!!

Here's the post:
I have been really sick yesterday and today. Yesterday, I had little to no motivation to do much. I'm not sure if I am feeling better, or was just overly inspired by watching Master Chef last night. I think I must be feeling better, because today I decided to make waffles. Not just regular waffles, but I decided to experiment with peach waffles topped with blueberries, peaches and cinnamon goo. Ok, maybe it was the Master Chef episode. It took all of the energy I had, but I think it was worth it.  I hope you enjoy these as much as we did. The waffle base recipe is adapted from several recipes, but I changed it all so much I think I can call it mine. ;0) I have discovered that you can omit the eggs (egg-replacer for me)  if you use real maple syrup. It binds like an egg!

WARNING: Please take note of where after the milk substitute I say to take out 2 TBS of liquid. This is very important! I just don't want you to miss it and have it be too runny.

Note: I am posting this for allergy-free Wednesdays.   If you want more recipes, go take a gander.
This makes four 12 inch waffles:

To Make Waffles:
2 tsp GF baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup brown rice
2/3 cup potato starch
1/3 tapioca starch
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 peach sliced into thin small chunks
1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon

mix separately:
1/2 cup pure maple syrup (this also binds it like an egg)
(or 1/2 cup sugar and 2 eggs. Egg-replacer works)
1 TBS vanilla extract
1/4 grapeseed oil
1 cup coconut milk and 1/2 cup rice milk (you can use 1/2 cups of any milk substitute) minus 2 TBS of liquid

Mix dry and wet ingredients until combined.
Put in waffle maker (or make into pancakes). Meanwhile, slice peaches for the top and make the cinnamon goo.

Cinnamon goo:
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
(You could also top with cinnamon and sugar.)

Top with fresh sliced peaches and blueberries. Drizzle with cinnamon goo!

  6. There are various waffle irons that make 'regular' waffles, i.e. the thin ones or the thick or tall waffles, know as Belgian waffles which uses a different iron known as Belgian waffle maker.
