Are you team waffle or team pancake? It’s quite a divisive question! I tend to go for waffles. The waffle holds the syrup in the convenient boxes and doesn’t get as soggy as pancakes. For this recipe, I flavor the egg free waffles with cinnamon and cardamom. The perfect amount of spice that pairs perfectly with fresh fruit and maple syrup.
Egg Free Baking
I took an at-home food sensitivity test recently. I know the tests aren’t 100% accurate, but I did it to get a stepping off point for an elimination diet. Foods are categorized as high, medium, or low impact. My results included egg whites as well as bell peppers and coffee. Some family members have sensitivity to eggs, so I wasn’t fully surprised.
I have been including egg free recipes on my blog for awhile to accommodate family members with true allergies. Recipes going forward will often highlight egg replacements/alternatives as well as I work on an elimination diet. Truthfully, you cannot tell a difference in the majority of recipes. My favorite egg replacements so far are unsweetened applesauce, pumpkin, banana, and Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer.
