gluten free waffles with blueberries (10 minute meal)

Waffles...syrup....blueberries....yum. Strangely, I have always preferred frozen waffles over the ones made fresh from the waffle iron. You can imagine my excitement when I found Trader Joe's waffles that are...wait for it...gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. Add blueberries and a little maple syrup for a breakfast fit for a gluten free Queen. Or King. Or Holly :)  #violetisturningviolet

Gluten free waffles with blueberries and maple syrup

  • 1 tbsp. Earth Balance Buttery Spread
  • 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon

Kitchen Gadgets: 

  •  Toaster or Convection Oven

Cooking Instructions: 

  • Toast the waffles on high (gluten free baked goods tend to taste best crispy).

Gluten free blueberry waffles with blueberry tea! 

I like to enjoy my gluten free blueberry waffles with blueberry tea! Anyone who knows me is aware that I am obsessed with tea...hence, my tea cabinet in the kitchen. I picked up an amazing blueberry tea in Bar Harbor, Maine this summer because, come on, Mainers are the blueberry experts!  

And speaking of blueberries, they are a fantastic choice to add some sweetness or a tangy taste to any dish. They score a 53 on the glycemic index, making them a low GI fruit which will not spike your blood levels. And they are, of course, a superfood. It just gets better and better.

Holly loves gluten free waffles...but she needs a bath after the maple syrup!
