I can’t believe I didn’t like gingerbread as a kid! In fact, it wasn’t until last year that I started experimenting with anything gingerbread/ginger and I was pleasantly surprised that I actually love the taste!
Although this recipe uses dried, ground ginger, I’ve actually been using raw ginger in a lot of my cooking over the past few months. I’ve also grown accustomed to ginger tea. Ginger has many medicinal properties and is supposed to aid in symptoms of nausea, upset stomach, and muscle pain, it is also known to help with inflammation and indigestion. Some sites even claim that ginger can help prevent diseases like heart disease and Alzheimers. Although I don’t think any one thing (like eating ginger) is going to prevent a disease, I’m all for consuming foods that can pose some benefit, especially if I love the way they taste. Besides, I find ginger incredibly soothing and I have noticed that it helps me if I ever have an upset stomach.
These Allergy Free Gingerbread Waffles are also Paleo and Vegan friendly and made using a combination of cassava and tigernut flour (two of my favorite grain-free flours). This recipe serves one (makes just 3 miniature waffles), but can easily be doubled to serve two.
