For years I have struggled with food intolerances and health issues.
My diet is incredibly limited, and I rarely find recipes that I can make without drastically changing ingredients.
I don’t follow a specific diet plan, so I had to create a lot of my own recipes, but this was a fun challenge!
Can you believe that waffles made with just one ingredient are delicious?
A one-ingredient waffle recipe born in the season of despair!
I had a baby postpartum who had a low milk supply and could not tolerate any kind of formula or donor breast milk. It happened countless times.
Everyone is different, but I found that eating these quinoa waffles daily (sometimes multiple times a day) significantly increased my milk supply.
Now that my baby is eating solids, she loves waffles too! And it’s basically like I’m giving him a bowl of quinoa, but it’s so easy because it’s a fun texture and hardly a mess. (He picks them up and eats them himself.)
These quinoa waffles are gluten-free (and perfect for those with multiple food sensitivities!)
This recipe is free of gluten, dairy, sweeteners, leaveners and salt. If you can tolerate quinoa, you can handle quinoa!
One of the unique things about this recipe is that it does not contain a leaver. I hate yeast, baking powder, and baking soda, so this is the only bread-like recipe I’ve ever had. These Quinoa He Waffles would be a great breakfast recipe for those celebrating Passover!

Quinoa is an excellent balance of macronutrients (supplemented with low-glycemic carbohydrates, complete proteins, and fats).It also boasts amazing micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc.)
Greenfit Organic White Quinoa It’s my favorite brand of quinoa. It tastes the least bitter and looks the freshest, and after a few hours of soaking it sprouts and is easier to digest.
no! Apple cider vinegar helps reduce the phytic acid found in grains and legumes, which inhibits the absorption of essential nutrients such as magnesium, iron and calcium.
Soaking quinoa (or other whole grains) activates the enzyme phytase, which works to break down phytic acid, which binds minerals such as iron, calcium, and zinc. Phytase works its magic to release whole grain minerals and make them easier for your body to absorb.
