Sweet Potato Waffles with Raspberries and Sausage

This morning I finally tried out this sweet potato waffle recipe. Although it tastes good, they weren’t crispy in the slightest and were more like the consistency of fluffy pancakes. I wonder if they’d crisp more with a bit more coconut flour. I have made coconut flour waffles before and was able to get them sorta crispy. The addition of sweet potato must make these more squishy.

The raspberries are fresh from the backyard.

Maple syrup from a local farmer.

I made the sausage patties from local grass-fed beef. Unfortunately, I discovered that we are all out of sage, so I wasn’t able to get the taste I wanted.

All in all, a good grain-free breakfast 🙂 err… dessert? 😉

I’m happy to be able to do these posts on my phone. It makes uploading pics waaay easier and faster… which makes blogging waaay faster.
However, it’s not the same with my main blog. A phone is not ideal for lots of typing!

Millet Quinoa Oatmeal

This can be a true gluten-free recipe if you specifically buy gluten-free oats. While oats themselves do not contain gluten, they are usually processed in places that process gluten grains and may carry trace amounts of gluten. Though am I allergic to most gluten-grains, oats are not on my allergy list and so I’m not picky about getting gluten-free grains.

This is a simple mix of oatmeal, millet, and quinoa. The millet and quinoa give a nice texture and also add some protein. This type of meal is usually called a hot cereal, but I make a big batch and put leftovers in the fridge, and then eat it cold whenever I want a quick snack.

4 cups water20130630_121417
1/2 cup millet
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup honey
1/2 TBSP cinnamon
1-1/2 cups blueberries
salt
unsweetened coconut milk

Bring water and millet to a boil. Just before boiling, add quinoa. Once boiling, cover and lower heart and simmer for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, add oats and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
If it gets to dry, add some more water or unsweetened coconut milk.
When done, add honey, cinnamon, blueberries, salt to taste, and mix evenly.
Serve with unsweetened coconut milk.
