Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Waffles with Sun Butter and Bananas

The hardest part of being gluten-free and dairy-free is coming up with interesting breakfast ideas, that are also nutritious, for the boys to eat.  I figure that if I have at least 7 ideas then I can just rotate them so they don’t get bored.

Here is one of their favorites:

Waffles with Sun Butter and Bananas

Toast a gluten-free, dairy-free brand of waffles. We like Van’s.


Spread Sunflower Seed Butter (or your nut butter of choice) all over the warm waffle.


Sprinkle Nutritional Yeast (not Brewer’s yeast) over the butter. This is a great source of B vitamins.


Layer sliced banana over the butter. Bananas are a great source of potassium.


Cut the waffle into quarters for easy eating as “finger food” and serve with a side of colorful fruit. We used pomegranate seeds today. Also, serve with your favorite non-dairy milk. Ours is Almond Milk.

    I have a child with Crohn’s Disease…he *thinks* he’s gluten intolerant, so I go along with it. I think I’m mildly ASD and have another child I suspect is major ASD. HOWEVER, food is IMO absolutely nothing to do with ASD,

      I believe that food is the most commonly overlooked culprit in many ailments including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and perhaps even Crohn’s. Most studies and physicians will concur that a healthy diet of natural, non-processed foods will keep your body functioning at it’s best and even reverse some disease processes. In ASD, more studies are showing improvement of symptoms based on specific diets. Anecdotally, that has been our experience. To see my frame of reference, read “The Premise” under “Gut Reaction: A Mother’s Plan for Healing Leaky Gut Syndrome in the Autism Spectrum” in the menu above. Eating healthy can only help, not hurt. I’d be curious to hear back from you if you choose to follow the program. Perhaps keep a diary and note any changes / improvements? Thanks for your comments. :)
