Ingredients
    Waffle
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup gluten free flour
  • 4 eggs
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Chocolate Sauce
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Instructions
    1. In a medium sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Once melted add water and sugar and stir continuously until the mixture starts to simmer.

    2. Remove from heat and add gluten free flour to sauce pan. Stir mixture together forming dough into a ball. Once formed into a ball continue to stir for 2 minutes. Then transfer to a bowl and let cool for 5 minutes.

    3. While dough is cooling beat the eggs.

    4. Add 1/3 of eggs to the dough and mix together with a hand mixer. Continue this step until eggs are all added to dough.

    5. Preheat waffle iron.

    6. While waffle iron is preheating combine cinnamon and sugar on a plate and melt butter.

    7. Lightly grease waffle iron and place 1/4 cup of dough directly in the center of waffle iron. Waffles are done when golden brown.

    8. Immediately transfer waffle to a plate, brush both sides with butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar.

    9. Once all churro waffles are ready it's time to make the chocolate sauce. In a microwave safe bowl heat 1/4 cup heavy cream in microwave until hot, then add chocolate chips to hot cream and let sit for 1 minute. Whisk together until combine.

    10. Drizzle or dip churro waffles with chocolate.

Gluten Free Mom Colorado

I am married to the most amazing man, Tommy. I am the mother of three beautiful children Landon, Finn, and Daisy. For years I have been helping friends, family and others navigate the life of gluten-free living. I grew up in a gluten-free house, my mom and both brothers were diagnosed with Celiac Disease when I was young. My mom did an amazing job making everything from scratch in a gluten free kitchen. When I had my first child Landon my world was changed. He was born at 24 weeks because I have a short cervix. The doctor told us that he had a slim chance of survival and that his life would be plagued with severe complications. He survived and has minimal complications due to his prematurity, but when Landon was two he started getting rashes all over his body and he would constantly be sick. My mom advised me to get Landon tested for Celiac Disease. This was the beginning of my true GF journey. Shortly after he was diagnosed, I decided to go off gluten as well. Although I do not have Celiac Disease, I have found that I feel 100% better eliminating gluten from my diet. Recently Finn was having some issues with his legs and knees hurting. The doctor told me to take Finn off gluten to see if it was causing the inflammation and pain. Sure enough once we changed his diet the symptoms went away. We have Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance on both sides of the family. My sister-in-law and niece were recently diagnosed and my Grandma recently took gluten out of her diet due to an autoimmune disease. We are in a fortunate position that both of our families understand the purpose of living a gluten-free lifestyle. I am on a mission to help people create amazing gluten-free recipes and to see that this diagnosis is not a curse, but can actually be delicious.
