Gluten Free Waffles with Homemade Peach Syrup
Pancakes are a weekend tradition in our house but last weekend I really wanted to use our waffle maker to make healthy waffles! I also wanted to make something that would use the delicious Farmer’s Market Fruit we had that was probably going to go bad faster than we can eat it. I have an issue in the summer where I buy all the fruit all at once because I love it all and I know it won’t be around forever. It doesn’t help that I am craving fruit all the time and baby seems to like it too!
Currently, our kitchen has the following fruit: plums, watermelon, cherries, strawberries and of course the year round staples- apple and banana. AND today is the weekly farmers market at work so I will likely buy more peaches. Is there anything better than a summer peach? This recipe can be customized easily to make your favorite topping.
