Would you like to try something new for breakfast? @TacoBell recently announced that they we’re going to be coming out with a new breakfast line, including what looks like some delicious breakfast #WaffleTaco’s. Not only do they look yummy but they we’re also a challenge. Why? Well Taco Bell is off limits if you’re Celiac. The only item they have that is gluten free is a salad, and a girl can’t live on salad alone.
The challenge was to create a breakfast waffle taco that was gluten free, full of flavor and healthy for the whole family. I decided to make two versions of healthy waffle tacos. The first one is a fruit and yogurt banana waffle taco which is light and brimming with fresh fruit.
Just look and all that yumminess! These healthy waffle tacos are so easy to make. Just pick up your favorite gluten free pancake mix and add a mashed up ripe banana to it before cooking it in your waffle pan. You will want to cook your own gluten free waffles from scratch because the frozen boxed ones are to crumbly to fold.
Next you will want to assemble the waffle taco.
*Place your waffle in a container that will hold your waffles slightly folded. Taco holders work great for this.
*Add a teaspoon of your favorite yogurt to the inside bottom of the taco. We used Organic Brown Cow Maple Yogurt.
* Add your favorite sliced fruit. We used strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas & pineapple.
*Next drizzle more yogurt on top of the fruit
*Top with a sprinkle of dark mini chocolate chips (optional) but why not?
Then eat and enjoy. These really went over well. Everyone loved them ,and you can feel good about feeding them to your family.
Want something a little more hearty? Then try our second recipe, Huevos Rancheros Cornbread Waffle Tacos. With a sweet cornbread waffle they can really satisfy bigger appetites.
Huevos Rancheros Cornbread Waffle Tacos are easy to make. Simply mix up the cornbread waffles and while they are cooking get your other items ready. We added a little fried potatoes and scrambled eggs to ours.
*Put waffle mix in waffle iron to cook
*Slice 1 potato and fry on medium in a little coconut oil
*When potato is done use the same pan and leftover oil to cook your eggs
*Place cooked waffle in taco holder
*Add scrambled eggs or fried egg to inside of cornbread waffle
*Put fried potato on top of egg
*Add shredded cheese
*Top with salsa and sour cream
Both recipes we’re wonderful but my families favorite was the cornbread waffles by far. Even the next day, they wanted the leftover cornbread waffles with fruit and yogurt for breakfast. They really do make a beautiful gluten free waffle you can serve with whatever your favorite toppings might be.
I hope this gives you some inspiration for a wonderful gluten free breakfast waffle. What are your favorite waffle toppings? I would love to see what you come up with and maybe eventually even more fast food restaurants will come up with more gluten free options but until then we can always think outside the box and come up with our own yummy versions.
Much happiness & abundance,
