Gluten Free Waffle

My kids have declared these the best Gluten free waffles. They are so light and fluffy on the inside with just the right amount of crispiness on the outside. It is a winner all around!

Gluten Free Waffles topped with fresh fruit and powdered sugar with a bowl of strawberries and blackberries.

My waffles have always had a tendency to be a little heavy when I tried them in the past. Not anymore!

Did I mention my kids are REALLY picky? This says a lot if my kids are asking for seconds.

It is win for sure around here!

We are a big family and with that comes A LOT of activities. I’m always looking to make breakfast easier and streamline the day.

This recipe is super easy and everybody enjoys these waffles. You might also like to try Gluten Free Pancakes.

Ingredients to make gluten free waffles on a wood cutting board

Ingredients you need:

  • Gluten-Free Flour Blend
  • Sugar
  • Vegetable Oil (Coconut Oil is another good option.)
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Milk
The waffle mix batter in a large bowl with a whisk next to it

How to make Gluten free waffle mix

  • First, preheat your waffle iron and spray it with a non-stick cooking spray.
  • Second, add all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until the ingredients are just combined. You do not want to over mix.
  • Next, pour about 2/3-¾ cup of the batter into the waffle iron. Let the waffles cook until they are golden brown.
  • Finally, take the waffles out of the waffle maker and keep cooking until you have used all of the batter. It is so easy!

Try some of these variations for these Gluten free waffles:

  • Top with berries. We love Strawberries and Blueberries.
  • Top with maple syrup. Yum!
  • Top with peanut butter.
  • Just put a dab of butter and eat on the go.

My favorite way to eat these delicious Gluten Free Waffles is with warm syrup and blueberries. Yum!

How long can you store the mix?

You can store the dry mix up to 3 months. I like to mix up a batch to keep on hand. It helps during busy weeks to be able to just grab the mix and add the wet ingredients when you want to make waffles.

Yes, just substitute any dairy free milk. We like almond milk and my kids love when I use vanilla almond milk!

Coconut milk is another good dairy free option.

Your entire family will be impressed with gluten free waffle mix.

It is a recipe that everyone can enjoy. We all love waffles and they are budget friendly too.

I am always on the lookout for something my entire family will eat, doesn’t cost a fortune or take hours to meet. These waffles meet that criteria and will be on the permanent menu plan rotation.

The kids even asked for breakfast for dinner one night. With healthy waffles like these, why not!

You are going to be so excited how delicious they turn out. Plus, the recipe is super easy to make.

More ideas:

You can also try using rice flour and coconut milk to make waffles. If using egg whites just make sure to beat until peaks form.

Can you freeze Gluten free waffles?

Yes! I often make a big batch and put them in the freezer.

This is perfect for busy mornings and all I have to do is pull what I need from the freezer and reheat them. Make sure to cool the waffles completely before freezing them.

You don’t want them to get stuck together so it is very important they are completely cool. I store mine in the large gallon bags in the freezer.

It is so easy to just grab one and go! Breakfast is so easy with just a few minutes of planning and making these ahead of time.

Reheat in the microwave. If you prefer a crispier waffle, you can use the oven or toaster oven.
