Make the easiest Gluten Free Belgian Waffles in minutes to get your morning started!
Make delicious waffles in minutes with this easy recipe that uses pantry-style ingredients! These waffles are made with a Belgian Waffle Maker too.
Making waffles gluten-free is very easy with a gluten-free all-purpose flour. This is a no-frills gluten-free recipe. I do not use a million different specialty ingredients, so I make this easily with gluten-free all-purpose flour and basic ingredients.
What flour should you use for Gluten Free Belgian Waffles?
These waffles MUST be made with a gluten-free all-purpose flour such as Bob’s Red Mill, Better Batter, or King Arthur. The flour blend needs to be a 1:1 swap with regular flour.
The all-purpose flour will already have Xanthan Gum in the flour blend, so no additional Xanthan Gum will be needed.
Optional Add-Ins and Toppings:
Of course with waffles, you can make them plain using this recipe or you can add additional items into your waffles for a variety of flavors.
These can be added into the waffles or you can also simply top your waffles with items like powdered sugar and maple syrup.
- Chocolate Chips
- Fresh Strawberries
- Chopped Pecans or Nuts
- Peanut Butter
- Powdered Sugar
- Coconut Sugar
- Maple Syrup
- Melted Butter
Tips for Making Gluten-Free Waffles:
Using a large bowl and a Danish Dough Whisk or your stand mixer, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
Then, you will whisk in the egg whites, and reserve the yolk for later.
Once this is well mixed, combine the milk, vanilla extract, oil, and egg yolks.
Next, it’s time to mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients to form the batter.
The waffles will be cooked based on your waffle maker instructions, typically you will want to coat the waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray and add about a cup of batter to your waffle maker and then continue to cook.
This recipe makes six crispy waffles! If you need more than six, simply make a double batch by doubling the ingredients.
It’s also okay if your batter doesn’t fully get to every edge of your waffle maker too, I prefer this because many times when it does it will pour over.
Can you use alternative milk products?
This recipe could be made with almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or soy milk; however, it may be necessary to add additional flour to thicken up the waffles as these milks are a bit more runny than cow’s milk.
It’s best to follow the recipe as written using cow’s milk or be prepared to alter the recipe a bit if needed.
The batter should be pourable, but not so runny that it runs out of the waffle maker.
How do you store Gluten Free Belgian Pancakes?
These pancakes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Remember that homemade waffles or pancakes are always served best fresh.
Many times they will harden up in the refrigerator, so it’s best to eat them fresh if possible.
If you are heating them again, heat them in the microwave for about 30 seconds to 1 minute before serving.
These Homemade Gluten-Free Waffles are very easy to make as quick breakfasts on the way out the door. The batter can even be made in advance and then cooked in the morning.
