We're in love with Laura Franklin's recipe for cassava flour waffles over at Fresh & Frank. She describes them as "nice and crispy on the outside and soft and a little nicely chewy on the inside." Plus, they're grain-free, dairy-free and paleo.  But perhaps the very best part about Laura's recipe is that it's quick and easy. Just put all your ingredients into a blender and you've got waffle batter!

Crispy Cassava Blender Waffles*
Makes about 10 standard square waffles

Ingredients

1 cup Otto’s Cassava Flour
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 ripe banana
2 organic eggs
1-2 tsp real vanilla extract
2 Tbsp organic virgin unrefined coconut oil
1.5 cups coconut or almond milk

Directions

  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. Take your blender and literally toss ALL the ingredients in.
  3. Blend all for about 30 seconds to 1 minute or until well mixed.
  4. Check batter; if it seems too thick still, add a splash more almond/coconut milk or water. You want it thick but still able to pour.
  5. Pour onto waffle iron. Depending on the integrity of your waffle iron, you may need to cook these twice to make sure the inside cooks through.
  6. Remove when crispy and golden brown on the outside. Top with desired ingredients. I made a wild blueberry compote for these. See recipe here.
