The Best Gluten-Free Waffle Recipe


When you’re living gluten-free, yeast-free and added sugar-free, it pretty much means that waffles are off the list. Right? Well…not necessarily.

During one of my many kitchen experiments, I came up with an amazing recipe for  the best gluten-free, waffles that will fool even regular bread eaters. These bad boys are so scrumptious that everyone you make them for will be asking how on earth you made such a mouth-watering gluten-free extravaganza.

Every time I make these gluten-free waffles, everyone raves about them.


This recipe makes them the best gluten-free waffles because the result is incredibly versatile. You don’t need to confine yourself to having a sugary waffle parade. You can simply use this savory waffle as a gluten-free bread for an open-faced sandwich.

I love to layer avocado, tomato and red onion with a dollop of dijon mustard on top of my waffle. And, since I don’t eat sugar, I really love to slather on some coconut oil, butter or nut butter.

These waffles are super light and crispy, and they’re made with very few ingredients. I’m sharing the very basic recipe but please feel free to experiment. The batter is made extra lovely when lemon rind, vanilla extract, raw chocolate powder, shredded coconut or raw cocoa nibs are mixed it.


The sky’s the limit with this waffle recipe. You can pile high sweet sugary goodness or stick with a soul satisfying sammie (short for sandwich in my house).

If you’re gluten-free and have longed to have a gluten-free waffle, this recipe is going to rock your world!

Hands down, the best gluten-free waffle recipe. Use these waffles for a delicious breakfast, or as gluten-free bread for an open-faced sandwich.
Serves: 6

  • 1 cup of chickpea flour (also known as Besan flour)
  • 2 tbsp of tapioca starch (you can also use sweet white rice flour)
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups of cow’s milk or rice milk (do not use nut milks — the waffles won’t brown).

  1. Heat your waffle iron up to a medium/high heat.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl combine all of the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the egg and milk, and mix with a whisk until the mixture is bubbly.
  4. Oil your waffle iron using a pastry brush (I like to use grape seed oil).
  5. Cook the waffles for 5 minutes, or until the waffles are medium, golden brown.

This recipe requires a waffle maker that gets very hot. Do not attempt this recipe if your waffle maker does not achieve a scalding temperature. It’s the high heat that will make these waffles really crispy and light.
