Gluten-Free Waffle Mix Recipe
Everyone loves a good gluten-free waffle mix and I love a good gluten-free waffle recipe. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of mixes to purchase (one of my favorites is gfjules gluten free pancake & waffle mix) but depending on your household gluten-free waffle consumption the mixes can get expensive.
I have a gluten-free waffle recipe in my cookbook that I’ve been making for years. About a year ago I started making the dry portion in bulk and storing it in a glass container so that my sweet husband and girls could easily make gluten-free waffles when I was traveling.
I also have a gluten-free pancake mix recipe that they also make up whenever they are in the mood for gluten-free pancakes.
Gluten-Free Waffle Mix
Most gluten-free waffle mixes are simply the dry ingredients combined. You always have to add the wet ingredients like vanilla, milk, eggs, oil, etc. By making it yourself you can keep as much or as little as you want on hand.
Also, it’s saves quite a bit of money if you are making gluten-free waffles every week. We like to make up a couple batches of gluten-free waffles and keep them in the freezer for busy mornings. My girls pull them out and re-heat them in the toaster for a delicious homemade breakfast.
Can I make gluten-free waffles dairy-free?
Yes. This gluten-free waffle mix recipe works with milk or dairy-free milk. We like to use vanilla almond milk when we make gluten-free waffles. It gives it an extra touch of sweetness and vanilla.
How long can I store gluten-free waffle mix?
This gluten-free waffle mix can be stored in an airtight container (or glass container) for up to three months at room temperature. It may stay fresh longer, but I wouldn’t know because we use it up pretty quickly. For store bought gluten-free waffle mixes, always check the expiration date printed on the box.
Can I use an egg substitute in gluten-free waffles?
I haven’t personally tried an egg substitute in this recipe. This gluten-free waffle recipe calls for 2 eggs and the eggs are an important part of the recipe. Sorry!
Why are my gluten-free waffles sticking?
If your gluten-free 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 NON 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. That’s because the center isn’t finished cooking. Hope that helps.
Can I make gluten-free waffles sugar-free?
Yes, you can make gluten-free waffles sugar-free. Simply use honey or coconut sugar instead of granulated sugar.
I make my own mixes and my own flour blends. When I do, I personally like to store them in glass jars or containers. I feel that they stay fresh longer, and they are a good storage option.
When I use ball pint mason jars (affiliate link) I purchase the lids that have spots for the date on the lid. I write down when I made the mix or flour blend so I can keep track of how old it is.
You can store this mix in a glass jar, container, or a zip lock bag. Just note that items stored in zip lock bags don’t last as long.
Most mixes like this gluten-free waffle mix store really well in all of the above.
After I posted my gluten-free pancake mix recipe people started emailing me asking for a gluten-free waffle mix recipe that they can mix up and store. I am super excited to finally get this post up for you, so that you can start whisking up your own gluten-free waffles.
With more and more people looking to save money on gluten-free mixes, I think this gluten-free waffle recipe is a great option for mixing up yourself.

How to make gluten-free waffles
- Mix dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl then transfer to an airtight container if you are saving it for later. Don’t forget to label your container with the date.
- When you are ready to make waffles:
- Preheat a non-stick waffle iron.
- If you doubled or tripled the dry ingredients before storing make sure add enough wet ingredients or measure out one batch worth of dry ingredients to mix with the wet ingredients above. One batch equals approximately 2 cups + 2 tablespoons of dry waffle mix.
- Pour the dry waffle mix into a large mixing bowl.
- Add in vanilla, eggs, milk, and oil. Mix just until the batter is smooth.
- Make sure your waffle iron is hot before you get started! If your waffle iron is not non-stick, spray your preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray.
- Pour mix onto hot waffle iron, approximately 1/4 cup of batter for small square waffles. Cook until golden brown.
- Remove waffle from waffle iron.
- Top with your favorite toppings.
- This recipe can be doubled, or tripled.
What kind of a waffle iron should I use?
Honestly, it’s up to you. I used a small, two-waffle waffle iron for almond 2o years. It was one of those $10 ones you get at Walmart. Just this last year a friend of mine gave me a round waffle iron. I love it just as much. If you have a waffle iron, just use that one.
