I can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe for AIP waffles yet! I recently received a new waffle iron, and in my eagerness to test it out I realized I needed to help others to satisfy their waffle cravings.

Make sure you double up on the recipe if you’re looking to feed an entire family.

What’s in a Waffle?

This may be a first for you – actually making your waffle batter from scratch. Because let’s be honest, most of you have that box of pancake mix hanging out in your pantry like a security blanket specially designed for breakfast emergencies.

Well, it’s time to toss it out. Here’s why. That cheerful cardboard box harbors a number of things you won’t want to consume, including wheat flour, sugar, dextrose (another form of sugar), and sometimes soybean oil.

I know, it’s so much easier to “just add water.” But it’s so not AIP.

Gelatin for Baking

Gelatin (I’m talking the unflavored stuff here) is a great thickening agent that can step in for eggs in many recipes. It’s odorless and tasteless, a great flavor-neutral approach when you’re just looking for a texture adjustment.

It will form a jelly when combined with water. It doesn’t look delicious at this stage, but it helps you achieve that characteristic spongy waffle texture.
