If you’re someone who lives with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, you know that finding good gluten free recipes can be a challenge. There are a lot of foods out there that you can’t eat, but one food that you may not have thought about is waffles. Waffles are traditionally made with wheat flour, but it is possible to make them without the gluten.
Here’s how to make gluten free waffles that are just as delicious as the real thing.
- Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions
- In a large bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
- In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and melted butter
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until everything is well combined
- Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray (this will help prevent the waffles from sticking)
- Pour half of the batter into the preheated waffle iron and close it tightly
- Cook for about 3-5 minutes or until golden brown (the cook time will vary depending on your waffle iron)
- Remove from the waffle iron and repeat with remaining batter
What are the Steps to Make Gluten Free Waffle
Assuming you would like a recipe for gluten free waffles:
1½ cups Gluten Free Flour Blend*
1 tablespoon baking powder ½ teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg, beaten slightly 1¼ cups milk of choice** 4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled OR 4 tablespoons oil***
Instructions: Preheat your waffle iron. Mix together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
In another bowl whisk together the egg and milk until combined, then whisk in the melted butter or oil until smooth. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until everything is combine – don’t overmix! Let sit for a few minutes so that the baking powder can do its thing.
Grease your waffle iron (I use cooking spray) and pour in enough batter to cover most of the surface – it should spread out on its own. Cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions. Mine takes about 3-4 minutes per waffle.
Serve with whatever you like on top! I usually go for some fruit, maple syrup, and whipped cream. Enjoy!
