Gluten-Free Waffles Recipe

    gluten-free waffles with fresh berries

    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
    Idle time:



    1. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl. Gently whisk together just until they're combined. Don't overmix the batter.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Serve with maple syrup and fresh berries.
