Christmas Breakfast--breaking tradition

To anyone who reads this--I hope you had a wonderful and happy Christmas day.

Our family Christmas breakfast tradition is strawberry whipped cream waffles. Then my daughter-in-law entered the family, with a strawberry allergy, so we added the option of raspberries.  Still delicious!

Now comes Momm with all the crazy food limitations. What to do? My son hosted the breakfast this year, and he found blackberries on sale, wonderful sweet berries.

I went to Sunflower Farmer's Market in Murray, Utah, (why oh why doesn't my town have a great health food store like that one?) and picked up a package of Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free pancake and waffle mix and some Rice Dream rice milk.  This actually made delicious waffles! 

I didn't even try to replace the whipped cream; I just used real maple syrup and blackberries. This was wonderful!  I had asked the kids to pick up sugar-free applesauce, another good topping option, but they forgot.  Still, I had a yummy breakfast with only a small break in tradition. They made wassail without the cinnamon, which is still very good.

 I noticed I wasn't the only one to use the maple syrup--it was half gone, and my hosting son gladly claimed the rest of the bottle.  This is very good; it'll keep me from binging on the sweet stuff.

  1. That's the Sunflower Market I go to!! :)

    Bob's Red Mill has such great products.

    I have a recipe for buckwheat waffles, and just recently learned buckwheat is gluten free. If you are interested in the recipe, I can send it to you.

    I made whip cream using pure maple syrup as you suggested in an earlier post and the entire family liked it. Thank you!
