In tradition with trying to make Valentine’s Day extra special for my kids, I have come up with a new breakfast treat for them! Gluten Free Red Velvet Waffles, gluten free because well, I like waffles every now and then too. Plus after my success making gluten free red velvet cupcakes it sounded like a delicious breakfast idea.
I have seen red velvet pancake and waffle mixes in the store many times and always wondered if they would be good. It was another one of those recipes that I would tell myself that, hey you need to recreate a gluten free version of that but it would always be put on a back burner to only be thought about every now and then. With Valentines coming up I wanted to do something different for my kids this year. Food coloring is not something we typically do a lot of. My boys can tolerate it much better now that they are older so I felt it was time to pull the red velvet waffle idea to the front burner.
For the recipe I combined the components of a basic waffle with the key parts of red velvet cake and before I knew it I had created some mighty tasty gluten free red velvet waffles.
I can’t wait until Sunday morning to pull out my heart shaped waffle iron and make these for my monsters! I know they will love them!
