Heart Shaped Waffles For Valentine’s Day!

Over the years, I’ve been super careful about buying foods with gluten in them. We tend to gravitate towards a gluten free lifestyle, but of course we are not perfect at times. I started this about nine years ago, after some of my reading and research suggested that there could be some benefits by omitting gluten, and I can tell you that I have definitely noticed a difference. It is a challenge to follow gluten free guidelines, especially when eating out so it’s important I plan ahead, either researching restaurants, or packing appropriate snacks.

Nowadays, there are plenty of gluten free options, and I’ve been having some fun experimenting with new recipes. For a rainy day activity, I thought it would be a fun to create gluten-free waffles as a snack. Since making “sweet treats” for Valentine’s Day with Holstein Housewares Donut Maker was so easy, I thought we should try out their Heart Shaped Waffle Stick Maker. Siella was of course my special helper as our thing together has always been baking in the kitchen.

The Waffle Maker bakes 4 heart shaped waffles in just 7 minutes, and it comes with a recipe booklet, offering ideas to make just about every creation from chocolate to red velvet treats. I opted for the Vanilla Flavored waffles, and tailoring the recipe with gluten free flour. When we finished baking, we used chocolate spread from a local french bakery, along with some strawberries to top our waffles. Skinny popsicle sticks turned our creations into fun lollipops. Ryder was psyched to come home from school, and find the sweet treats made just for him.

The batter made at least 20 mini waffles, and I froze the leftovers, for future breakfast options as well as a springtime treat. These Holstein treat makers are ideal when baking with kids and who knows what you’ll be able to create.
