Gluten Free Waffles


Waffles, oh how I love thee! I could eat waffles everyday, unless of course I wake up craving a breakfast taco. Ever since my husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease I’ve been looking for a good gluten free waffle recipe. I’ve tried boxed mixes, which were okay tasting, but I also wanted something with cleaner ingredients. So I came up with my own recipe. And let me tell you, they are so delicious!

So now that I’ve got a go-to waffle recipe I’ve been making them like crazy! Making them with chocolate chips or blueberries in them are my favorites! I haven’t tried them with banana yet, but trust me it’s on the agenda. I’ve also been eating them with ALL of the toppings! Berry compote, chia seed jam, maple syrup, you name it! I feel like the world is my oyster now! If you can’t tell, I’m pretty freaking excited about my waffles. I also want to try to make pancakes with the batter, so when I test it out I’ll definitely report my results. Oh, and these waffles are fluffy and not cardboardy at all, so it’s a win-win. No one likes cardboard waffles.


My hubby was pretty pumped to test out this recipe. He acts like he doesn’t love trying the recipes that I’m testing, but I know he does. I mean, the way to man’s heart is through his stomach, right? I think so. He usually eats a bowl of oatmeal at his office during the week, so he does like it when I make breakfast on the weekends. Sometimes I get lucky and he makes me breakfast (he usually grills stuff when we use the grill, or helps me sometimes when I need it, but that’s about the extent of his cooking. It’s not that he can’t, he just chooses not to)!

Anyway, I’m super excited for fall, because pumpkin EVERYTHING! Plus, cute coats and boots and all of the fashion things. Back to pumpkin. I’ll definitely be testing some pumpkin recipes, so be on the lookout for those! And as always, if you make these waffles, or any of my other recipes, use #theplantedkitchen on social media so that I can see your creations! Enjoy your waffle making and have great week ahead!

  6. These look super Yummy!! I love waffles, and my husband is such a skeptic about “gluten-free.” I’ll have to try these on him just to see if he can even tell the difference! I’ll be posting our favorite waffle recipe on my blog soon, but it is the opposite of gluten free 😛

    • I still am skeptical about the taste of a lot of gluten free products. I had never had any sort of gluten free bread until my husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. It’s definitely trial and error. Let me know what ke thinks!

  7. This looks suoer bomb im going to have to try this out im a huge fan of pancakes!

  8. Ah! my boyfriend Patrick is going to be so excited. I just bought a gluten free pancake mix for him (he has a very sensitive stomach and gluten and dairy products both cause him a lot of trouble) but the boxed mixes are never quite as good as something with real ingredients. This is fabulous!

  11. Loving tgis recipe and im saving it for later!

    You put the syrup in the batter? that sounds pretty cool, and allows for more fruit action on top, i’ll have to try that next time i make some pancakes. And celiac’s is such a terrible curse. props to you for figuring out different ways around it to keep your hubs having good food.


    • Yes it does allow for a little more fruit action, but they aren’t sweet enough(for me at least) to eat by themselves. I still need some strawberry compote, jam, or maple syrup!

  13. These look delicious! Ill have to share them with my friends 🙂
