Sunday mornings are meant for pancakes and waffles with sticky sweet maple syrup drizzled on top. That said, if you’ve started a gluten-free diet, you’ve probably had to give up your go-to waffles recipe. Fear not, however, as this gluten-free waffles recipe will have you eating deliciously crisp and fluffy waffles again in no time.
To make gluten-free waffles, you just have to swap out the all-purpose flour for gluten-free options. Some gluten-free waffles are made with almond flour, while other gluten-free waffles are made with coconut flour. For this recipe, we use rice flour.
It doesn’t really matter which type of gluten-free flour you use, however. What’s important is the use of potato starch in this recipe. The potato starch gives these gluten-free waffles those gloriously crispy edges.
A good gluten-free waffle mix will produce waffles that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The waffles will puff up beautifully and have a texture that isn’t too different from regular waffles.
This gluten-free waffle recipe has the perfect blend of ingredients and produces some of the best gluten-free waffles, in our opinion. Serve these with fresh berries and maple syrup for a scrumptious weekend breakfast.
Cook time: 15 minutes
Prep time: 10 minutes
- 1 cup rice flour
- 1/2 cup potato starch
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup oil
- 2 mashed bananas
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk (or 1 1/2of milk + 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice. Let that rest for 10 minutes before using)
- 1 tsp honey
- maple syrup to serve with
- fresh berries to serve with
- Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl. Gently whisk together just until they're combined. Don't overmix the batter.
- If the batter feels too thick, stream in a little milk to loosen it up. The batter should fall off a spoon slowly but steadily.
- Pour about 1/4 cup of batter (or more, depending on your waffle maker's size) per waffle mold. Cook the waffles until the waffle maker indicates they're ready or until they're golden brown.
- Serve with maple syrup and fresh berries.
