    1/8 teaspoon baking soda
    2/3 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon sugar

    Directions:
    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

    This recipe sounds great, but when kefir is heated, it kills the beneficial bacteria that kefir is known for. If the purpose of this recipe is to give people the beneficial bacteria of kefir to aid in digestion, it would be better to make the waffles with milk and serve the kefir in a glass with the waffle.

    In the book 'The Probiotics Revolution', the healthful benefits of inactive (dead) probiotics are discussed. This is one reason why baking with kefir is not a waste of time.

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    Here is a recipe that will leave you wanting more. The great thing about waffles is they can be frozen for a later date, so you can never make too many. This recipe is gluten-free, and also free of most common allergens including; dairy, eggs, nuts, and corn.

    It’s easy to let classic breakfast favorites disappear from gluten-free diets. With so many baking options that don’t contain gluten now readily available at many grocery stores, it’s just as easy to bring them back. These waffles are warm and cozy on top of bursting with flavor. They’re perfect for breakfast or brunch but also hearty enough for one of those breakfast-for-dinner nights.
