What are Gluten-Free Waffles?
Gluten-free waffles are waffles prepared without ingredients containing gluten. People who have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or a wheat allergy may experience digestive issues from the protein gluten, which is present in wheat, barley, and rye.
Gluten-free waffles often use gluten-free flour and ingredients such as coconut flour, almond flour, or gluten-free all-purpose baking flour. Similar to classic waffles, they can be cooked with a range of ingredients and flavorings and topped with a variety of toppings.
What Makes This Gluten-Free Waffles Recipe Special?
Versatile: There are many ways to enjoy these waffles, with different sweet and savory options. No matter which way you choose, you won't be disappointed!
Gluten-free: This recipe is great for gluten-free and keto diets. They don't contain any gluten but still taste fantastic!
Easy to make: These gluten-free waffles are very easy to make and take just a few ingredients. You can also freeze them for meal prepping!
What You Need to Make Gluten-Free Waffles at Home
All you need are some simple, pantry staple ingredients to make these delicious gluten-free waffles at home. Let's look at them in more detail:
- Gluten-free all-purpose baking flour: This is just like regular all-purpose flour, but it's gluten-free. We'll use it as the base of our waffles.
- Coconut flour: Just like the all-purpose flour, coconut flour is also gluten-free. However, it also adds a nice tropical taste to the batter!
- Monkfruit sweetener: Since regular sugar can also contain gluten, we'll swap it out for monkfruit sweetener. It has no gluten and it also has zero calories!
- Salt: A little salt will help balance out some of this recipe's sweetness. It also helps with the texture by creating a more stable batter.
- Baking powder: Next we'll need some baking powder for these waffles. In this recipe, it will act as our leavening agent, helping the waffles rise.
- Eggs: We're going to need a few eggs also. They'll give the waffles moisture and also provide structure to the batter.
- Cashew or coconut milk: Both of these milk substitutes add a hint of nuttiness or tropical sweetness to the waffles.
- Coconut oil: Lastly, we need either some coconut oil. This is another gluten-free ingredient that will add flavor and moisture to the waffles.
How to Make Gluten-Free Waffles Step by Step
Making these delicious gluten-free waffles is easier than you think. Here's how to make them at home step by step:
Sift the gluten-free all-purpose baking flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt into a small glass bowl and mix using a hand whisker. Set aside until ready for use.
In a second small bowl, beat eggs, add Monkfruit sweetener, cashew or coconut milk, and whisk well until thoroughly combined.
Next, add liquid coconut oil and whisk well once more.
Finally, add the dry ingredients in two separate additions and whisk well. Use cashew or coconut milk to reach the desired thickness of your waffles. The thinner the batter, the more airy the waffles will be.
Using a tablespoon-size ice cream scoop, add a scoop of batter onto a preheated waffle maker. I like to use a cute small four-inch waffle maker to make these waffles. Cook for a minute or until the waffle maker indicator light comes on, letting you know it's done.
Remove it from the waffle maker and put it on a platter. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
Top waffles with a topping of your choice and enjoy!
Your delicious Gluten-Free Waffles are ready to be served!
Tips for Making the Best Gluten-Free Waffles Ever
Preheat your waffle iron: Make sure to preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions before cooking the waffles. This will ensure that the waffles cook evenly and have a crispy exterior.
Don't overmix the batter: Overmixing the batter can lead to tough and dense waffles. Mix the ingredients until just combined, leaving a few lumps in the batter.
Use a non-stick waffle iron: To prevent the waffles from sticking to the waffle iron, use a non-stick waffle iron or brush the iron with a little bit of oil before cooking each batch.
Recipe Variation Ideas for Gluten-Free Waffles
These tasty gluten-free waffles are absolutely perfect as is, but if you're looking to change things up here are a few variation ideas you can try:
Vegan: To make the recipe vegan, replace the eggs with a vegan egg substitute, such as flax eggs or chia eggs.
Fruits: Add fresh or frozen fruit, such as blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries, to the batter before cooking.
Chocolate: Add cocoa powder and dairy-free chocolate chips to the batter before cooking for a chocolatey treat.
How to Store Leftover Gluten-Free Waffles
To store leftover gluten-free waffles, place them in an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator for up to five days.
You can also freeze this waffles! To freeze them, allow them to cool completely after they are cooked. Then place them into a freezer container or a freezer Ziploc back and freeze for up to a month.
To reheat, place the waffle on a plate and heat it up in the microwave until it is heated through (about 30 seconds). You can also put the waffles in a toaster oven or regular oven at 300°F for about five minutes.
