Homemade Gluten-Free Chocolate Waffles that are dairy-free, nut-free, and perfect for breakfast any time of the year. These chocolate waffles are a fun spin off of traditional waffles.
These waffles are an adaption from my Gluten-Free Waffles recipe. If you like chocolate you'll always want to try my Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Waffles
Raise your hand if you like waffles? Now raise them again if you like chocolate? If you are a fan of both, you are going to LOVE these Gluten-Free Chocolate Waffles. They are fudgy, dense, and perfect for drizzling chocolate sauce or pure maple syrup on.
These incredible Gluten-Free Chocolate Waffles are made with only a handful of ingredients. They are as simple as they get.
Just like any good waffle recipe, these Gluten-Free Chocolate Waffles are simple to make and use minimal ingredients. You don't need anything fancy to make these, and they whip up in no time.
When I first made these waffles, my kids devoured the whole batch in less than a week. Not only did they enjoy them for breakfast, one night we used them to make gluten free ice cream sandwiches. We smashed a large scoop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream in between two gluten-free chocolate waffles and called it dessert. Another night we made s'mores with them- delish!
Working with Gluten-Free Flours
When working with or measuring gluten-free flour, spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level. Do not scoop your measuring cup into the gluten-free flour. The best method really is to weight it but I don't have the ingredient weights for all my recipes yet.
These waffles are made using one bowl and only nine standard ingredients. This batch makes 12-1 6 waffles (depending on the size) but you can easily double the batch. I love batch-cooking and often double up on waffles and freeze them for my girls.
They like to pull the frozen waffles out of the freezer and toast them in the toaster for a quick, yet filling breakfast. I always serve them with fresh fruit and a protien, but they are pretty filling on their own.
I don’t have Ryze flour, what else can I use?
You can use my personal flour blend or Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend in this recipe. Most blends that have a combination of flours and starches work well in this recipe. Just note the texture will be different from blend to blend. I have not tested this recipe with anything other then Ryze and Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend.
Waffles are sticking
Have you ever made waffles only to find that they are sticking to the waffle maker? If your waffles are sticking, this could be one of three things. First, if your waffle iron is non-stick, you should NOT spray it with cooking spray. Spraying it could result in sticking. Second, if your waffle iron is not non-stick, you will need to spray it.
Last, if you don't let the waffles cook until they're done, they might come apart when you try to lift them out.
Did you make these Gluten-Free Chocolate Waffles? If so, please let me know what you think! I always love hearing from people who have made my recipes.

These waffles look perfect for weekend brunch! YUM!
This recipe lead to very runny batter. I added another 1/2 cup or more of flour. For my round maker I used 2/3-1 cup if batter per waffle. They came out MUCH fluffier than those with just 1/3 cup which were crispy and wafer like.
Did you use Ryze flour in this recipe? The batter shouldn't have been runny. Ryze is 100% rice flour, and absorbs the wet ingredients more then other flour blends.
I used the flower substitute from Costco, in extra egg, a few chocolate chips, brown sugar instead of white and some almonds. They came out very fluffy in spite of the batter being a little runnier than I expected. some of the best waffles I've ever had thanks for the recipe 🙂
Thanks for sharing! I'm so glad you like them.
Hi can I use dairy milk in these?
Yes, you can.
What can i sub for ryze?
You don't need to use Ryze in this recipe. Any all-purpose gluten-free flour blend can be used. Bob's Red Mill 1:1 is a good option.
