But, he tries to be a good sport, so he went along with it.

For my current favorite dairy-free waffle recipe, I converted this zucchini pancake recipe from Amanda Rose, who blogs at Traditional Foods.
|Dairy-Free Zucchini Waffles|
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons baking powder
4 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons brown sugar (or sucanat, rapadura, etc.)
2 cups coconut milk beverage (or other milk substitute)
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
1. Preheat your waffle maker (optional: on the deck )
2. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.
4. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, stirring with a minimum of strokes to avoid over-mixing.
5. Cook on your waffle maker according to the manufacturers directions.
Spread your waffles in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze for about an hour. Then remove the waffles; store and freeze in a zipper bag.
|Freeze Waffles in a Single Layer, Then Transfer to a Bag|
Freezing in a single layer first will prevent them from freezing into a solid mass and make it easy to remove them one at a time to reheat.
I thought our waffle breakfast-picnic was a hoot. My husband . . . not so much. Fortunately, the kids enjoyed their waffles with gusto.
