It’s National Waffle Day, so how about some Gluten Free Almond Waffles? I must admit that I didn’t remember that it was National Waffle Day today until this morning. Once I realized, I knew that I had to make waffles. Thank goodness my grandmother gave me a Belgian waffle maker years ago. I do love it when my family remembers is how much I love to bake and cook. So I whipped up some delicious waffles but modifying my almond blueberry pancakes recipe to make these waffles. The recipe is below and because I didn’t have a lot time, there is no accompanying video but I did take plenty of photos.
So if you find this a little too late to make breakfast today, you can always have waffles for lunch or dinner. Please let me know if you end up making these. I hope you have a wonderful National Waffle Day!
