Absolutely Perfect Bran Flax Waffles

Yum!  Non gluten free hubby and son love these, and say they're better than wheat waffles!

  • 2 cups gluten free flour mix
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 1/4 cup rice bran
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 T. brown sugar
In a large bowl, combine flour mix, baking powder, salt, flax meal, and rice bran; mix well.  In a medium bowl, beat eggs, then add buttermilk, milk, oil, vanilla, and sugar.  Beat together, and then add to flour mix.  Stir with whisk just until combined.  Batter will be thick and lumpy...don't worry, it's supposed to be like that!  Hubby always thinks it looks too thick, and I've tried adding liquid, but then they don't turn out right!  Cook according to the directions on your waffle baker.  In mine, I pour 1/3 cup of batter per waffle, and bake for 7 minutes.  Enjoy!  Leftovers can go in the freezer, and work great as freezer waffles another day.
