Chai Waffles (Variation of Babycakes NYC’s gluten free vegan waffles)
Before even starting to mix your flours and heating up the waffle maker, you need to brew some chai tea. I used Tazo Decaf Chai tea.
1 1/2 cups of Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour
1 cup of brown rice flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
3/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum
3/4 cup of chai tea (and squeeze out the tea bags over your mixture)
1/2 cup of nondairy vanilla “milk”
3 tablespoons of agave nectar
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
Mix your flours together. Add wet ingredients. Mix until it’s a thick even batter. Pour over a preheated, GREASED, waffle iron, just enough to where it doesn’t spill over the edges. This makes about 3 belgian waffles. For my syrup, I mixed together 1/3 cup of agave nectar, 1/2 teaspoon of maple flavoring, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
