Gluten-Free Gingerbread Waffles with Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey

There’s nothing better than holiday recipes filling my home with the scents of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s funny how you can literally taste Christmas in certain foods. I love the holidays for a million reasons, but one of the biggest ones is that our schedules slow down, giving Brooks and me more leisurely mornings than usual. A day that starts with a pile of pancakes or waffles is pretty much guaranteed to be a good day, right? That’s why I was so excited to partner with Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey — we can make Christmas even sweeter together!

I was in search of a holiday-inspired morning meal that wasn’t overly decadent (who has time for a post-breakfast nap?) when I came across this delicious recipe by holistic nutritionist Kara Stout. I really love swapping the sugar for honey in these waffles — not only is it all natural and a healthier way to indulge, but the honey even helps keep the waffles from drying out. This recipe checked all the boxes: organic ingredients, naturally sweetened, simple to make, and insanely delicious. You should definitely try these at home!

    Hi Jules… I am a LONG time buyer of ThriveMarket.com… LOVE this place!

    I am changing up the waffles… because I can’t use Almond flour, will be using Domato brand Gluten Free flour instead. Also, I was taught to whip the egg white almost to stiff peak stage, and fold into the batter creating a much lighter and fluffier waffle.
