We make from scratch most of our food. We never thought that we would be able to recreate a waffle that had the same taste and texture as the original. Up until last year we didn’t have to… we were able to buy a really great tasting, frozen waffle that was free of dairy, wheat, egg and nuts. Just over a year ago they disappeared off the shelves and we thought that it was just an importing problem and with time they would be back on the shelves. We enquired and found out that the little company that specialised in these yummy frozen waffles had been struck by a typhoon and their little factory destroyed. Unfortunately it was a small family owned business and inevitably the typhoon destroyed them… this left us with the dilemma that we were probably not going to eat waffles again… with the continual requests from our boys we went to work on trying to recreate a waffle recipe that would taste great and have the right consistency that all waffles must 🙂 hope that you too enjoy the Oliver’s Choice waffle recipe!
When we were first confronted with the fact that we were to live without dairy, wheat, eggs, rye, peanuts and tree nuts we were not really sure what we were going to be eating for breakfast… breakfast is such an important meal of the day and one of our personal favourites now especially on the weekends… we have learnt so many new ideas that we are excited to share them all with you…
We are always looking for yummy lunch box/snack ideas. From Jude Blereau’s second book ‘Coming Home to Eat, Wholefood for the Family’ we love the Little Tapioca Puddings. We make them slightly different every time with different flavours of the season and sometimes Oliver prefers the coconut cream mixed through the tapioca mix. Whichever way and flavour we make them, they are a great snack to have at home or on the go.
I got lucky today!! Look at the awesome and beautiful breakfast that my boys (mainly the biggest boy in the family) made for me today! Just like the real deal minus eggs plus wheat free bread, wheat free bacon and tea with organic rice milk. Yum! Yum!
