Tapioca Flour Waffles
That’s a fancy name for waffles! Wow! Heavenly delicious and healthy! I woke up this morning and did want to post any meat, grains, or dessert recipes. I often have a bag of Tapioca flour in my pantry because of 2 reasons. One is because I frequently make cheesy quick bread for dinner or snacks when I have company and the second reason is that of its health benefits.
Tapioca flour is a starchy white flour that is also known as tapioca starch. It has a slightly sweet flavor and is light is texture when used in baked goods. Tapioca flour is made from cassava. The plants are used in warm countries and mainly South America.
Tapioca Flour Waffles are fluffy and have a unique flavor. I often add a spice or a blend of spices. But I find it better with just a dash of freshly grated nutmeg. It is unfortunate that this morning I don’t have my little helper to help me take pictures. Helpers are great around the kitchen only when they do what you say.
For many men, it is usually not a problem because they know they will be eating soon and don’t have to worry about their stomach. But anyway, he was so tired that I did not want to disturb him, so I decided to make the waffles by myself and let him enjoy the fruits of my labor after. It was a good idea to tell you the truth.
There are some mornings I wake up and just want to stay a little bit longer in my quiet world. The world where the only voice I hear is mine. So I don’t have to tell you that this has been a slow morning for me.
For the waffles, a waffle maker is necessary. I often find it easier to spray the griddle with a non-stick spray instead of brushing it with regular oil, which some people do. The nonstick spray delivers less oil and has a lighter texture. This adds to the fluffiness of the waffles. And also it is easier to coat the griddle with a spray than an oily brush. Less work if you tell me!

I wonder if there is a trick to making them a little less gummy? I like the recipe but my waffles are quite on the gummy side
Hi Tessa! Thanks for your comment. Did you over fold the mixture? The mixture should be gently folded until combined. And also did you beat the egg whites until stiff peaks are formed.
This looks amazing Gemma, loved the fact you used tapioca flour. It’s my go to flour right now for many recipes. Unfortunately I don’t have a waffle maker. Perhaps I can make some pancakes using your recipe instead?
