Kefir Buckwheat Waffles (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
1 cup buckwheat flour mix (¼ cup buckwheat, ¼ cup mixed Montina flour, sorghum, and sweet rice flour)
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
7/8 cup plain kefir OR yogurt (I used to use Lifeway Prostokvasha or Bazarnyi)
3 tablespoons melted butter
Mix dry ingredients together. Beat egg until light. Whisk in kefir. Add dry ingredients and whisk together. Whisk in melted butter.
When the waffle iron is hot, pour about ¼ cup of batter on each waffle square (you may need more, depending on the size of your iron). Cook until steam a stop coming out of the edges of the iron, and the iron opens easily (about 7 minutes).
Makes enough waffles for 2 adults
