I got a new waffle iron yesterday! I was inspired to seek one out after seeing a recipe for no sugar no grain waffles at Satisfying Eats. I’ve had a couple cheap irons in the past, but they were so hard to clean and made such terrible product that I threw them out after just a use or two. I read ratings and went with a better quality machine this time. And it was very near free after discounts, coupons and Kohl’s cash!
My daughter and I were excited to try out the recipe today. We adapted it to be more of a sweet waffle, leaving out the bacon and cheese. We left in the black pepper for a bit of zing, though. We added some vanilla. We add vanilla to nearly everything.
I bought a bunch of peaches at the grocery store yesterday and was very disappointed to bite into one last night and find it mealy and mushy. I tried another one and got the same result. Yuck. So I cut them up this morning and turned them into a peach compote topping.
The result? Peach cobble waffles! YUM!
We’ve been trying to avoid sugar and grain off and on since I became acquainted with fitness guru Vinnie Tortorich. We’ve been pretty consistent for about three weeks now, our longest stretch so far. My 13-year-old daughter is a big fan of this way of eating. I’ve long suspected she has a sensitivity to gluten or wheat and she says she feels much better eating this way.
I think she also likes it because it means mom is cooking real food most of the time now instead of relying on so much lesser quality convenience foods! Real food like these yummy waffles!
Yes, WAFFLES with no sugar and no grain!

My daughter said, “We need to make these next time I have a friend sleepover! She’ll never believe they have no sugar or grain!” If my peach cobbler waffles recipe looks good to you, please share it! I’m excited to try more recipes in my new waffle iron. (This one by the way:)
