Simply Delicious Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread Waffles

Are regular waffles delicious on their own? Well of course they are.  But, if you add just a few more ingredients to the mix, you can take your regular waffles to simply delicious in no time. That's exactly what happened when I put together this dairy-free and gluten-free Zucchini Bread waffle recipe.

Zucchinis seem to be around everywhere this time of year, so putting them into a waffle recipe just seemed to make sense. Not only are they delicious, but they are really simple to make too.

Waffles At The Next Level

I had seen some recipes for zucchini pancakes a while back and made them for a family dinner. They were pretty good and everyone seemed to like them, but I kept thinking... this could be better.

And better had to be waffles.

Now don't get me wrong, I do love a good pancake. It's just something about the light, airy fluffyness that makes waffles just a smidge better than it's flatter food relative.

Waffles aren't always the easiest thing to make, but when you get it right (like this time), they can turn out pretty darn awesome.

Zucchini Bread Simple Spices

One of the things missing in the zucchini pancake recipe I tried was the addition of some spices. Zucchini itself really has no strong flavor, so it needed a little help. What it needed was some spicing up.

Not crazy, but just enough to make the flavor of the waffles taste like, well, like something yummy. And what recipe tastes yummy that has zucchini in it? Well, zucchini bread of course.

So, by just adding a little cinnamon and nutmeg, along with the shredded zucchini, I was able to get the perfect combo of flavorings I was looking for.
