Gluten-Free Cassava Waffles

Start your day with these waffles, which are a delicious change from regular waffles that often include refined grain flours and sugar. Cassava flour is made from yuca root, a tuber similar to yam, plantain and potato, and then dried and ground into a flour. This naturally gluten-free flour offers a mild flavor and can be used interchangeably in recipes with wheat flour. Cassava flour is high in fiber, folate, manganese, potassium, magnesium and vitamin C. These waffles are a fun and delicious way to enjoy a breakfast favorite with a new ingredient.
