Easy Gluten Free Waffle Recipe

by Kimberlee Stokes Affiliate Link Disclosure B

My daughter is not a fan of frozen gluten free waffles, so she has done without until we could find a suitable alternative. Last week she tried Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten-Free Baking Flour in the following recipe. 

She said that the waffles tasted great with butter and syrup, but we did find that they tasted better fresh than frozen.

I know this is late in posting, not a very budget friendly product but they do put out occasional coupons but VAN’S makes a gluten free blueberry frozen waffle and we eat them with out syrup they are that good. I save these for emergencies when we are in a hurry.:)

Thanks Andrea. My daughter actually does not like that brand :(, but I am glad that they work for you.

I actually dont care for Van’s Gluten Free Waffles either. I dont have a waffle iron so I was wondering if you think this recipe would work for Pancakes??

I haven’t tried it, but it probably would.

Hi, I wanted to chime in that Pamela’s makes an excellent mix for tasty pancakes and waffles, I am not sure on the price compare to Bob’s (we do not care for the taste of Bob’s GF flour mix) but think they are comparable. We cannot tell the difference between Pamela’s and regular flour baked goods and have successfully used it for ebelskivers as well.

Thanks Heather. I have seen the Pamela’s baking mix, but it seemed more expensive than the Bob’s Red Mill last time I checked. I’ll have to look at it again.

You need to check out http://betterbatter.org/! It is a wonderful, relatively inexpensive cup for cup GF flour alternative. We love it! We learned of it thru GlutenFreeOnAShoestring.com.

Do you think one could use the GF bisquik in this recipe?

Reply

Kimberlee September 25, 2012 at 7:05 pm

I think so Shelly. My sister uses the GF Bisquik to make her pancakes so I think it would work.

These were so great! Simple and very tasty… Great recipe!

I’m very new to GF baking and am attempting to be dairy free as well. My 2 little girls were begging for waffles on this cold rainy morning in the Pacific NW and didn’t want the frozen kind. Since I’m DF as well I used coconut milk which so far seems to be very forgiving as a substitute. I just cooked my first waffle from your recipe and am thrilled! They are delicious! Crisp on the outside and slightly chewy but still fluffy on the inside. Thank you for this wonderful comfort food recipe. FYI when I made the batter I was a bit concerned because it seemed really thick so I added another 1/4c coconut milk and it cooked beautifully.

Woohoo! I’m so glad that you enjoyed them. Coconut milk is a brilliant substitute for milk. Thanks for letting me know it worked well. :)

What kind of waffle maker works well for GF waffles?

Reply

Kimberlee December 26, 2012 at 6:39 am

I haven’t tried any waffle makers other than the one we have which we purchased at a yard sale (I don’t even know the brand–sorry!). I think any of them should work fine, but you may have to adjust the cooking time based on how thick your batter is.

I have a son that is intolerant to gluten and dairy. He also loves waffles and pancakes. I have found that the best way to get waffles that don’t taste gluten free is to separate the eggs beat the egg whites and add them last to the mix it helps to make them extra fluffy and worth the extra effort.

Thanks for the idea Matt!

they were perfect!! thanks

Yay! So glad you liked them. :)

These waffles were way too dense. We usually just use the gluten free pancake and waffle mix by kinnikinick but we were out so i tried this. No success using both bobs red mill ap flour or other ap gf flour. Followed recipe exactly so not sure where I went wrong.

Kimberlee February 18, 2013 at 5:09 pm

Yes, they are dense. If you like a lighter waffle you could probably use just the egg whites and whip them before adding them to the batter. We just don’t take the time to do that. I guess we aren’t very picky because we had not found a better gf waffle recipe and we love waffles. :)

Is this recipe to make just one waffle?

Reply

Kimberlee June 14, 2013 at 1:10 pm

Hi Samantha! This recipe makes four waffles for our round waffle iron, so it would probably make about 3 for a larger waffle iron.

Rachel August 6, 2013 at 4:39 pm

I have made these a dozen times and they are great. I do use coconut oil instead of olive and coconut milk instead of mil and honey instead of the sugar and that seems to take care of any baking soda/powder aftertaste. I just made a batch now with banana and shredded carrot and a splash of lemon juice. Also used all water and no milk. They are so good! Thanks for a great recipe!

Kimberlee,
I want to make these waffles tomorrow and was just wondering. I have the Bob’s Gluten free baking mix but it does not have the xanthum gum in it. Do I need to add that to the recipe?
Thanks Heather

I don’t know for sure, but I would suggest it. I hope they turn out well for you. :)

Hello!
I just made these for breakfast and they were pretty good. I’ve been GF for over a month and it was so nice to have a waffle without stomach pains! :-)
Thanks!

I am so glad. Thanks for letting me know. :)

Mel January 10, 2014 at 1:26 pm

Thanks for a great recipe! I made this with my own blend of flour (organic white rice flour & tapioca starch weighed to 140g per cup) and used my vitamix to whip up the batter. It made the fluffiest waffles, and no one would know they were GF. Yum!

Reply

Kimberlee January 10, 2014 at 3:13 pm

Whipping the batter is a great idea! Thanks Mel!

Michelle January 30, 2014 at 1:01 pm

Thank you so much for this recipe! Our immediate family is not gluten free, but several extended family members are. I have been practicing with gluten free recipes so that when they visit, we can accommodate. I made these with my kids this morning and they were AWESOME. I wonder if this recipe could be tweaked for muffins?

Thanks! Michelle

Thanks Michelle – I am so glad that you enjoyed them. We haven’t tried making muffins with it, but it might work. Here are our 2 fave muffin recipes: http://thepeacefulmom.com/2014/01/08/delicious-moist-gluten-free-blueberry-muffin-recipe/ and http://thepeacefulmom.com/2012/10/17/gluten-free-banana-pecan-muffin-recipe/.

I just made these waffles, and even after adding more milk, I found these to be incredibly dry… it could be that I doubled the recipe and I’m not that great at baking, but these are pretty dense…

Reply

Kimberlee March 7, 2014 at 11:51 am

Hi Amy! I checked with my daughter who makes this regularly and she had adjusted the recipe with less baking mix and less baking powder. I have updated the recipe if you would like to try it again. I apologize for the inconvenience. Here’s the link for you: http://thepeacefulmom.com/2012/04/02/gluten-free-waffle-recipe/.
