This time, my experimental baking was rather more successful, in part because I know what a good pizzelle should taste like, and these were somewhat better than that. The following is a recipe I pretty much created on the fly by looking at several classic pizzelle recipes (especially Mario Batali's recipe), and looking at a few fairly dodgy GF pizzelle recipes, none of which contained almond flour.

6 TBS GF flour +
2 TBS Almond flour
4 tsp coconut oil (melted) (or butter)
½ tsp baking powder
3 TBS sugar
1 large egg
1 TBS egg white
½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp almond extract (cloves or ground fennel seed are more traditional)

Procedure
Beat coconut oil, sugar, egg, and egg white, and extracts or spices until foamy and well mixed. Mix flours and baking powder until well mixed, then add to the wet ingredients and mix well.

Heat pizzelle maker, and place 1 TBS of batter on each pizzelle mold (mine makes 2 pizzelles at once). Cook until done (use directions for your machine, or cook at least a minute, check, and remove when golden brown.

Makes 8 pizzelles, I made this to try it out, double the recipe for lots of pizzelles.

As is typical for using almond flour, while I (unlike [personal profile] amberite) have no problem eating gluten, these were somewhat better than normal pizzelles. If you aren't cooking for someone who need to avoid gluten, use replace the GF flour with all purpose flour, but keep the almond flour for flavor.

Next time, I'll try 1/3 almond flour rather than 1/4, since these held together perfectly well and should taste even better.

+ GF Flour Recommendations
King Arthur's GF multi-purpose flour works well, but the recipe in the America's Test Kitchen book The How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook works even better, a full batch is:

• 24 ounces (4 1/2 cups plus 1/3 cup) white rice flour
• 7 1/2 ounces (1 2/3 cups) brown rice flour
• 7 ounces (1 1/3 cups) potato starch (not potato flour)
• 3 ounces (3/4 cup) tapioca starch
• 3/4 ounce (3 tablespoons) nonfat milk powder (or soymilk powder)
