  • When selecting the coconut milk, make sure to check the label to ensure it is gluten-free.
  • For the best flavor, use freshly grated lemon zest.

  • Substitute brown rice flour with almond flour - Almond flour is a great gluten-free alternative to brown rice flour as it is higher in protein and has a nutty flavor which can add an extra layer of flavor to the waffles.
  • Substitute coconut milk with oat milk - Oat milk is a great dairy-free alternative to coconut milk, and it is also a great source of fiber which can help make the waffles more filling and nutritious.

Cinnamon Apple Waffles Replace the lemon zest and lemon juice with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of diced apples. Cook the apples in a skillet with a tablespoon of butter until softened. Add to the batter before cooking the waffles.

Blueberry Compote - A sweet and tart accompaniment to the Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles that will bring out the flavor of the waffles and add a delicious layer of flavor.

Honey-Glazed Bacon: Crispy and salty bacon slices glazed with honey for a slightly sweet flavor. This will provide a savory contrast to the sweet Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles and Blueberry Compote.

Five stars for taste - they really taste awesome. One star less, though, because the batter needs some tweaking. With one whole teaspoon xanthan gum it becomes way too gummy, the batter gets an elastic glob instead of slightly runny batter. I added at least one quarter cup more coconut milk, but it still was too thick and didn't bake well. Instead of the usual 4 - 5 minutes I had to bake the waffles for about 10-15 minutes, so they became a bit crisp, but otherwise they would have remained too raw on the inside. Next time I think I'll try to use either less xanthan or omit it completely and add the egg yolk instead. That said, the taste definitely was amazing, so I'll make it again for sure. Thanks for sharing!
