Sorghum is one of the cheaper gluten free flours but it is also packed with great nutrients. It's slow to digest meaning it's low on the glycemic scale making it great for diabetics. It's high in protein and antioxidants but has a pleasantly mild taste that reminds me a little of wheat flour.
I think you'll love them! ;) Enjoy.
PS- If you live near a Cash & Carry they sometimes offer LARGE 25 lb bags of Sorghum Flour for around $20 bucks! It's a super good deal and a great way to save money being gluten free!
Gluten Free Sorghum Waffles
Adapted by jalene from a recipe by Amy Perry
- 1 & 3/4 cup milk (we used almond milk to make it dairy free)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tbsp sugar (we used evaporated cane juice sugar)*
- 2/3 cup sorghum flour
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 & 3/4 tsp xanthan gum
- Preheat your waffle iron. Grease if necessary.
- Place all of the ingredients in a high speed blender in the order listed above (I used a blendtec). Blend on the lowest speed for 10 seconds. Scape the sides if needed.
- Pour into your preheated waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
*NOTE: To use this as sandwich bread, simply decrease the sugar to 1 Tbsp instead.
