Chestnut Flour Waffles (Gluten Free)

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"The rich and nutty flavor of chestnut flour makes a deliciously unique waffle. Light in texture but hearty in flavor, this is a perfect treat for those cool autumn mornings. Chestnut flour has a smoky flavor that hints of molasses. When you taste these hot waffles topped with maple syrup you'll think Mother Nature arranged this marriage!"

  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Mix chestnut flour, white rice flour, potato starch, and baking powder together in a large bowl.
  3. Combine milk, egg yolk, vegetable oil, and honey in another bowl. Sift in flour mixture, whisking constantly to prevent lumps in the batter.
  4. Beat egg white in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl until peaks form. Fold gently into batter until just combined.
  5. Pour batter onto preheated waffle iron and cook until golden brown per manufacturer's instructions, 3 to 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute brown rice flour for the white rice flour if desired.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Had to use aquafaba instead of eggs and soy milk instead of cow's milk, and I also left out the honey, but they still turned out delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
