Gluten Free Waffles!!

Rated as 4.88 out of 5 Stars

"Being new to a gluten-free diet can be frustrating, but it doesn't mean you have to avoid the foods you enjoy. Made with sweet sorghum flour and tapioca starch, these waffles will be nice and crispy on the outside, while light and fluffy on the inside! Separating the eggs is optional, but worth the extra work! Instead of regular syrup, top with apple butter, greek yogurt, or berries. My husband and son love peanut butter on their waffles. You can add 1-2 teaspoon of cinnamon for extra flavor."

  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Spray iron with cooking spray.
  2. Mix sorghum flour, tapioca starch, sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Beat chicken and duck egg whites until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  4. Beat egg yolks, almond milk, applesauce, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl. Continue beating while gradually adding the flour mixture; blend until smooth. Fold the egg whites into the batter.
  5. Pour 2/3 cup batter onto preheated waffle iron. Cook until golden brown.

My son has celiacs and this is the best recipe I've found yet! I took the suggestion of using coconut oil. The batter was a little bumpy but they didn't stick to the waffle iron. I also used all...

These are amazing! I used all chicken eggs and cinnamon flavored applesauce. My kids gobbled these up. I plan on freezing the extra and putting them in the toaster for busy school mornings.

These were awesome! It had been a long time since we'd had waffles because I was getting frustrated with other gluten free recipes. My daughter was so excited to eat these. They turned out re...

Very good would never know they are gluten free. The only thing I changed was I used all chicken eggs. Made up the whole batch and froze them to put in the toaster.

I halved the recipe because this was my first time making it. That didn't seem to effect the consistency. I only used chicken eggs. I used coconut milk instead of almond. I was concerned about i...

These were fantastic waffles. And not just fantastic for gluten free, these were hands down fantastic waffles! The only change I made was because I didn't have applesauce I added about 2 tbsp...
