Buckwheat Waffles, topped with Strawberries, Coconut Oil & Maple Syrup

This morning I am enjoying an old favorite- our blueberry buckwheat pancake recipe, revised as buckwheat waffles. I topped mine with coconut oil, sliced strawberries & real maple syrup. Ry chose chocolate syrup & coconut oil. They sure are tasty!! This recipe makes about 3-4 large waffles (4-squares).

Buckwheat Waffles

1 cup buckwheat flour

1/2 cup brown rice flour (sorghum would probably also work, but I’ve never tried it)

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1 teaspoon guar gum

2 teaspoon baking soda

dash salt

1/2 cup agave

2 tablespoon applesauce

6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1-1/2 to 2 cups water
