Gluten-Free Red Velvet Waffles with Coconut Cashew Cream

Happy Valentines Day friends!! It's been a while since I've posted here (though I have continued to update my blog) but I couldn't resist coming back with a themed breakfast to celebrate the day of love. Whether you are spending today with a significant other, loved one, family, friend, or with yourself this breakfast will be sure to start your day off right!




Ingredients:

2 cups of gluten free flour (I use Bob Mills GF all purpose flour)
3 teaspoons of baking powder
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of ground flax meal
2 tablespoons of water
1 cup of non-dairy milk (I used vanilla soy milk)
1/4 cup of apple sauce
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of beet juice (or a natural red food dye)

Begin by heating your waffle iron. Mix together ground flax meal and water and set aside to thicken. Mix together all dry ingredients and then add the wet ones, including your flax meal mix. Stir to combine throughly. Spray your waffle iron with non-stick spray and pour half of the batter onto the iron. Allow to cook for 5 minutes or so and then place in oven to keep warm while the second batch cooks.

Coconut Cashew Cream:

1/2 cup of cashews (soaked overnight or at least four hours)
1/3 cup of coconut milk
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of agave
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

While your waffles are cooking, prepare your cashew cream. Place all ingredients in high speed blender and process until very smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness accordingly. Place in fridge until ready to serve.
