Sorry....I pushed the wrong button and cut myself off. Regular recipes work well for waffles and pancakes, if your family can tolerate the dairy products that go into them. I don't even separate the eggs and beat the whites separately. They'd probably be better if I did. I don't add any xantham gum at all to the pancakes. The egg holds them together. Seems as if I did put some in the waffles. Now, I fix these for grandchildren, and the kids aren't gourmets, but they surely can polish off a lot of them. I'd say it's worth a try, and it will be a lot less expensive.
