Author: Amanda Paa



  • 100 grams brown rice flour
  • 35 grams tapioca starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup plain Kefir or plain yogurt – not greek
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons grassfed butter melted and cooled


  • Preheat waffle iron to medium high. In a large bowl, whisk together brown rice flour, tapioca starch, salt, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together maple syrup, kefir, and egg until smooth. Whisk these ingredients into the dry, then whisk in the butter until completely combined and smooth.
  • Then add one third, or half (if you want really large waffles) of the batter to the waffle iron. As the batter sits it will get really thick – not pourable. It’s totally okay. Just spread it out on in the middle of the iron, like you would cake batter.Seal, and let cook until just golden brown. (do not overcook) *I don’t rely on the timer on my waffle, instead I open lid to look after a few minutes to see how they are coming along. Repeat two more times to makes additional waffles.
  • Then top with almond butter, jam, and maple syrup.
