Oh I just love the crunch of a good Gluten Free Waffle. I am pretty fussy about waffles. I have to say these are fantastic!
Perfect, sweet crispy crunch on the outside and a soft fluffy center. A truly divine treat for breakfast!
Longing for the traditional Belgium waffle? Miss dunking those beautiful crispy, fluffy goodness in maple syrup. Well look no further! I have the perfect option for you!
A little ghee (butter), fresh fruit, pure maple syrup and my waffles dreams have become a reality. Or like my daughter, warm and toasted with creamy almond butter and honey. Whatever your taste buds are calling, this gluten free waffle will satisfy your craving!
When my family went gluten free, we missed our staple breakfast items. For me it was Pancakes, Quiche, Cinnamon Rolls and the beloved waffle. I went to the kitchen to re-create these favorite past time breakfast and brunch recipes.
I have tried so many boxed gluten free waffles. We have also dumped a lot in the trash because they taste like cardboard. I am sure you know what I am talking about! I can promise you these will not disappoint!
Even better my waffles are also Paleo which means they are grain free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. Yippee! Total mom win!
They are also made with almond flour so they have protein and fat to keep you full and satisfied. My kiddos request these often and have become a staple in our breakfast routine. They also freeze great so my kids can easily pop them in the toaster.

Step by step instructions
- Place dry ingredients in a bowl (almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut sugar, and baking soda).
- In another bowl, place eggs, vanilla, and almond milk and whisk together.
- Combine the wet and dry ingredients and whisk until you have a smooth waffle batter.
- Preheat your waffle iron, spray your waffle iron with a nonstick stray. I like to use an avacado oil spray. I place about 1/4 cup per waffle. This will vary depending on your waffle iron.
- Cook for 4 minutes
- Place waffles on a cooling rack or enjoy right away!
- Here is another way to make these tasty Gluten Free Waffles. When my kiddos where little this was a great option for their tiny hands. It also made for an easy breakfast or snack on early preschool days. Gluten Free Waffle sticks!!
- Instead of placing the waffle mixture into a traditional waffle maker, I place them in my waffle stick maker.
- Spray your waffle stick maker with a cooking spray.
- Add about 2 tablespoons to each waffle well and cook for 4 minutes.
- This recipe will make quite a lot of Paleo Gluten Free Waffle sticks.
Tips for success
- You can make so many variations to this recipe. I have added chocolate chips, nuts, and fruits to the batter. Use your imagination or whatever you and your family like!
- If you are not dairy free, you can easily substitute the almond milk for regular milk.
- I use avocado oil in this recipe but you can also use olive oil, coconut oil or whatever oil you have on hand.
How to store and reheat leftovers
Store leftovers covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Use toaster oven to reheat gluten free waffles. This will make them nice and crisp.
FREEZER OPTION: You can freeze these waffles up to 4 months. I like to wrap them in parchment paper and then plastic wrap to help maintain their freshness. Place frozen waffles in the toaster oven or a plain toaster to desired crispness.
