Sweet Grapefruit Waffles

Serves: six, 4 x 4 inch square waffles


Vanilla nicecream:

  • 2 cups frozen ripe bananas

  • 1/2 teaspoon 100% pure vanilla extract


  • 1 cup flour of choice

  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • pinch of sea salt

  • 1 cup dairy free milk

  • 2 Tablespoons allergy free butter substitute, melted or a neutral baking oil

  • 1 egg replacer


  • red grapefruit

  • honey or maple syrup


  1. Add the frozen bananas and vanilla extract into a food processor. Blend until light and creamy. Scoop into a bowl and place in the freezer to keep chilled until you top the waffles.

  2. Peel and slice the grapefruit. Add into a bowl and place into the refrigerator to keep chilled until you top the waffles.

  3. Spray your waffle maker with non-stick spray and heat to temperature.

  4. In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together.

  5. In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together the dairy free milk, allergy free butter substitute/neutral oil, and egg replacer.

  6. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. A few lumps in the batter are okay and preferred.

  7. Allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes and then pour 1/3 of the batter into your waffle maker. Cook the waffles according to the instructions for your waffle maker.

  8. To serve, plate 2 waffles with a scoop of vanilla nicecream on top. Place a couple of grapefruit slices around the nicecream. Drizzle with raw local honey or maple syrup for a little extra sweetness.

Happy brunching!
