Easy Gluten Free Waffle Recipe

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.

      What kind of waffle maker works well for GF waffles?

      • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

        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.

  • Andrea

    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.:)

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

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

  • Karen

    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??

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

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

  • Heather H

    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.

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      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.

      • Felipe

        they were perfect!! thanks

        • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

          Yay! So glad you liked them. :)

  • http://marykay.com/bhill1994 Bonny

    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.

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      Thanks Bonny!

  • Shelly

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

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

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

  • Sara

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

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      Thanks Sara–I’m glad you enjoyed them. :)

  • KT

    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.

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      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. :)

  • Matt

    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.

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      Thanks for the idea Matt!

  • Lisa

    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.

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      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. :)

  • Samantha L

    Is this recipe to make just one waffle?

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      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

    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!

  • Heather

    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

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

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

  • Mo

    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! :-)

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

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

  • Mel

    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!

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      Whipping the batter is a great idea! Thanks Mel!

  • Michelle

    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

  • amy

    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…

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      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/.

  • Kelly Burrell

    I used this recipe this morning to make with some gluten free fried chicken for an AMAZING Chicken & Waffles breakfast. I added a little rosemary to the batter and served the whole dish with a rosemary infused maple syrup. My family loved it!!! This is definitely going to be my waffle recipe from now on!

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee Stokes

      That sounds crazy delicious Kelly! Can you share the recipe for your rosemary infused maple syrup?

      • Kelly Burrell

        There is no recipe, really. I just used my spice mill to finely grind some rosemary and added it to a pan with maple syrup and heated the two together. If you prefer to have the flavor without the specks of rosemary, I’m confident it would work just as well if you steeped a whole rosemary sprig in the pan. If chicken and waffles are a regular on your menu, you could heat enough syrup to fill a tall cruett, pop in a sprig of fresh rosemary & pour in the hot syrup. Place the pourer into the cruet, then you’ll have this delicious concoction on hand at a moment’s notice!

        • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee Stokes

          Thanks Kelly!

  • Lillian

    I used this recipe this morning. I used “Erika’s gluten free flour mix”. It came out quite thick, so we “watered it down” with milk.. how much? Probably about a 1/4 cup more of milk but not sure so don’t quite me on it. We own just a cheap Salton ($25.00 retail) waffle maker. It took about 4 minutes for two perfectly square perfectly delicious waffles. Thanks for sharing this recipe that works with gluten free flours! The recipe made 7 standard “toaster size” waffles.

      I am so glad that you were able to make adjustments for your flour mix and that you enjoyed them. Thanks for taking the time to let me know Lillian!
