Gluten-Free waffles that use minimal ingredients, are simple to make, and are perfect for getting your morning started.
My girls love eating gluten-free waffles for breakfast. Every once in a while I find my gluten-eating husband sneaking a few onto his plate, too. This recipe is easy to make, takes little time to prep, and can be whipped up by just about anyone. You can use a round waffle maker or a square one.
I am all about keeping things easy in the morning. I often make up a big batch of waffles and freeze them for the girls to eat throughout the week.
If you make them yourself, it’s quite a bit cheaper than purchasing gluten-free waffles from the store. If you like gluten-free mixes, check out my gluten-free waffle mix recipe. You can make the mix in advance, store it, and pull it out when you are ready to make waffles.
Waffle prices vary by location and brand, but the cheapest I’ve found gluten-free waffles at the store was $4 for six waffles. You can make two batches of this recipe for less than that, and get way more waffles out of it.
People often tell me they don’t have time to cook or bake. Again, make a big batch of these gluten-free waffles and freeze them. They are super simple and it will take you less than an hour to make and cook these waffles.
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.
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.
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!
You can serve these gluten-free waffles for breakfast with your favorite toppings, use them to make breakfast sandwiches, or freeze them for future palate-pleasing activities. We’ve used waffles for a variety of different recipes, but mostly as a quick breakfast.
When my girls want a waffle, they simple pop one in the toaster – similar to a frozen waffle you buy at the store – and enjoy.
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.
About Waffle Irons
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.
Looking for more breakfast options that you can make in advance and freeze? Try my Gluten-Free Pancake Mix Recipe, or Apple Cinnamon Pancakes. Both are easy and both can be made ahead of time and frozen.
