Crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, and perfect for *lots* of maple syrup, this gluten free waffle recipe is one you don’t want to miss!
Raise your hand if you were a fan of Eggo waffles as a child? (Raises both hands). I have a weird confession to make… I used to take Eggo waffles while they were still frozen, and go sit behind the couch and eat them… still frozen. The hiding part was necessary because my siblings made of my (I don’t blame them tbh) but I strangely loved them this way. Don’t worry, these waffles are definitely not meant to be eaten frozen!
I’ll admit, I’m usually team pancakes, but there’s something irresistible about the little pockets on waffles that seem to soak up maple syrup so well and give you the perfect amount n every bite. If waffles weren’t made for maple syrup, then I don’t know what was.
Are waffles vegan friendly?
They can be! Most traditional waffle recipes have egg and milk in them, but these are two ingredients that can easily be subbed for vegan alternatives. Eggs do make waffles a bit more fluffy, but trust me, these gluten free waffles are just fine without the egg.
How to make the best gluten free waffles
This recipe is a simple matter of combining all the dry ingredients together, then whisking in the wet and cooking in a waffle iron! Easy peasy.
To start, you’ll want to combine the GF all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Whisk together to combine all the ingredients.
Next, whisk in all of the remaining ingredients, including the prepared flax egg. Let the batter sit for a few minutes while the waffle iron heats up. Feel free to stir in some chocolate chips or blueberries if desired. Then use a ladle, or about 1/3-1/2 measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the iron and let cook until the iron beeps. Top the waffles with berries, banana, and maple syrup!
