These tender, golden waffles topped with roasted strawberry sauce are gluten-free, grain-free and nut-free thanks to a secret ingredient!
It’s hard to beat homemade waffles for breakfast. Light and fluffy with a toasty golden color, a batch of fresh waffles hot off the iron is always a real treat, especially when they’re as easy to make as these.
Gluten-free, grain-free, paleo and nut-free, these easy blender waffles are perfect for either a special weekend brunch or an everyday breakfast. What also makes these waffles uniquely suited to any day of the week is that they’re made with watermelon seeds instead of flour, which are naturally high in plant-based protein that keeps you feeling full and helps avoid that mid-morning crash.
Light and crispy around the edges while tender and soft on the insides, the waffles have a nice toasty, not too sweet flavor. Topped with a flavorful roasted strawberry sauce, they’re an effortless way to transform the first meal of the day into a special occasion. Roasting strawberries intensifies their natural sweetness and makes a tasty sauce you’ll want to put on just about everything!
If you have kids, this is a great recipe for them to help with. The batter is a cinch to make in the blender while you wait for your waffle iron to heat up and you can easily make the strawberry sauce ahead of time. Fresh strawberries are quickly macerated then roasted in a hot oven until tender and swimming in a ruby red syrup. The sauce can then be refrigerated until needed.
The waffles themselves can also be made ahead of time if desired and kept in the freezer until needed for a quick weekday breakfast, but a fresh batch makes for a special weekend meal. And who wouldn’t love waking up to a delicious breakfast in bed with platter of these? Enjoy!
