•   One of the hardest things about going gluten free was thinking I’d never be able to eat Gluten Free Waffles and Gluten Free Pancakes ever again. I dispelled that myth long ago and am here to give you yet another recipe for Gluten Free Waffles from my ever-growing recipe collection. Lucky for me, I had all the ingredients to make Gluten Free Whole Grain Waffles this morning. The recipe I chose fit my criteria for perfect waffles – crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Add maple syrup and I was one happy Gluten Free Diva. This recipe came from a new cookbook that is not only fantastic, but guess what? I have 3 copies to give away! Keep reading! The cookbook is called Nourishing Meals: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes for the Whole Family by Alissa Segersten and Tom Malterre. This book is soon to become the Gluten Free version of the classic Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer. It is chock full of valuable information and has recipes upon recipes that will keep you busy for years of happy gluten free cooking and baking. This morning, when I realized that I had a yen for waffles, I got my butt down to the kitchen, donned my apron, and began assembling the ingredients for the recipe in Nourishing Meals that I’d bookmarked a few days before. Within 15 minutes, I sat down to a plate of gluten free steaming waffles, swimming in maple syrup, and a cup of tea. I’m so pleased with this combination of flours and starches that I’m thinking of making a big batch of it and having it at my fingertips for instant waffle making. Bonus Tips: 1. The waffles freeze beautifully. 2. They make great sandwich bread. Would you like a copy of this book? I have 3 copies to give away.

      I’m happy to announce that the 3 winners of this contest were chosen and have been sent their cookbook. Thank you to everyone who participated!
    • Erin

      Being new to gluten free, I haven’t ventured too far into gf baked goods. Sometimes a girl just needs a waffle though, so I will definitely try this out soon! I am a waffle purist, butter and maple syrup…but my (self-diagnosed) OCD goes a little nutty, there has to be butter in each little square!

      • Ellen

        Welcome Erin! There’s so much to learn and soak up with being gluten free. I’m so glad you came to my blog and signed up for my newsletter. Good luck! You’ll see that it gets easier and easier as time goes on. Before long, you won’t even think twice about it. Plus you’ll feel like a million bucks!

    • http://www.lovesandwich.net sara

      I am a earth balance and maple syrup girl all the way! Before going gluten, dairy and sugar free my favorite toppings were plain yogurt with maple syrup…yum!

      • Ellen

        Nothing wrong with plain and simple earth balance and maple syrup!!!

    • Debi

      I love syrup on waffles and pancakes, but my other favorite is berries and sauce made from them. Strawberry and blueberry most often

      • Ellen

        Ooh, strawberry sauce. Now that sounds delicious!

    • http://www.thesinglestatus.com Rochelle | The Single Status

      WOW! THOSE LOOK DANGEROUSLY DELICIOUS!!! Ellen you are SOOOOOO incredible. Keep ROCKING!!

      -Rochelle

      • Ellen

        They are super duper delicious Rochelle!

    • Anita Duffey

      Cooked down strawberries with a 1 T of Grand Marnier

      • Ellen

        Now you’re talking!

    • http://[email protected] Carolyn

      Yum! Can’t wait to try ‘em

    • http://www.ChristineGrasso.com Christine Grasso

      What do you suggest to replace the eggs since there are alot? Would flax/chia meal be appropriate?? I just got this cookbook in the mail too and I love it!!

      • Ellen

        Christine – if you look in the cookbook, Ali includes other pancake/waffle recipes w/o eggs. I haven’t tried her recipes, but I have a recipe on my blog for waffles made w/o eggs. Let me know how you make out.

    • http://www.glutenfreeforgood.com/blog/ Melissa

      I have a copy of Tom and Ali’s book and it’s wonderful, so don’t enter me in the contest. What I don’t have is a plate of those tasty waffles sitting in front of me. Darn! Waffles and pancakes are my weakness and teff is one of my favorite flours. I will definitely be making these! Thanks for the inspiration!
      Melissa

      • Ellen

        You’re most welcome Melissa! People who read your comment should know that you’re one of the best Gluten Free bloggers on the planet!!!! Check out Melissa’s blog at http://www.glutenfreeforgood.com. :)

    • http://www.ceciliaticsay.com Cecilia

      I’m excited to try this recipe & top it with almond butter & dices dates! YUM!!!

      • Ellen

        Yumm, diced dates, hadn’t thought about that!

    • http://www.ChristineGrasso.com Christine Grasso

      Ps – my favorite toppings are strawberries or blueberies and pecans or walnuts.

      • Ellen

        Sounds like a plan Christine! It’s great to have so many gluten free options that work!

    • Stacie VanHorn

      My favorite way to top waffles is with hot baked apple slices and a caramel
      drizzle- enough to dip each bite it but not to saturate it. It feels like less guilt
      than eating apple pie!

      • Ellen

        Wow. Now that’s an interesting MUST TRY topping!

    • Faye Weissbaum

      I like maple syrup, the real stuff. No butter necessary. A few months without it you don’t even miss it!!

      • Ellen

        I agree, butter ain’t necessary!

    • Linda S.

      I love waffles with all sorts of topping and if calories and sugar were of no concern I would top with butter, peanut butter, choc chips and maple syrup. But in real life I heat up blueberries and strawberries, smash them up and top the waffles that way. Delicious!

      • Ellen

        Linda – I totally hear you! Smashed up berries sounds perfect to me!

    • Sara Ann

      This GF newbie appreciates your site! Adore waffles. My preferred topping would be: mixed berries, whip cream, almond slivers! Would soooooooo apppreciate cookbook!

      • Ellen

        GF Newbie – have hope. It gets easier AND there are so many wonderful GF bloggers online who you’ll learn from. If you’ve signed up for the newsletter, you’ll be entered in the contest to possibly win the cookbook!

    • http://www.godairyfree.org Alisa Fleming

      Awesome, you’re back and with a delicious vengeance!! You are the queen of yummy recipes Ellen, and this looks like a winner. I just got a copy of nourishing meals, so I’m not entering, but still want to share how I love waffles – toasted and spread with nut butter and cinnamon, yum!

    • Jean Fisher

      AS I am gluten free and dairy free I would have to go with Earth balance and real maple syrup. Before being dairy free I would go with strawberries and whipped cream.

      • mona

        jean, me and my daughters have been gf and df for a while now – sweetened mimic cream (made from almonds and cashews) is absolutely a DIVINE whipped cream substitute, but you have to whip it yourself.
        http://www.mimiccreme.com/healthy.html

        personally, I whip and fold in a cup of melted chocolate chips to make a yummy chocolate mousse that would top this waffle so nicely with a few strawberry slices. ok now I’m seriously craving waffles and need to buy a waffle maker!

    • http://www.krantzwellness.com Stefanie Krantz

      I love fresh berries and sometimes a little nut butter (ie. cashew, almond or a drizzle of tahini). Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    • Angela S

      Recent Gluten and Dairy free so i can’t enjoy my whipped cream as much.
      My usual go to topping is maple syrup. 2nd runner up is fruit jam like strawberry or apricot peach. yum!

    • Teresa

      Butter and honey or peanut butter, or lots of fruit and walnuts… okay, now I’m hungry…

    • lut

      I love waffles! But the best topping for it is vanilla icecream with fresh strawberries or blueberries! Hmmm! Try it!

    • Kasey

      Growing up we would do waffles almost once a week. We did mostly sour dough. BTW do you have an suggesstions for GF SourDough? Topping wise we would always have yogurt, and frozen cherries the we ordered in bulk then of course top with syurp! Thanks for sharing.

    • Emily

      I can’t tell you how much of a “favorite food” thin, crisp waffles are for me. I’ve requested them for breakfast for every birthday and major holiday for as long as I can remember. My mom and I re-vamped her waffle recipe when I dropped gluten, dairy and (for a while soy) and they were delicious but I haven’t tried teff in a waffle and NEED TO. I crave it sometimes, Teff.
      But waffles? they need either pure maple syrup or peanut butter. Hands down both is decedent. I have a hard time with insulin (also a Type 1 diabetic) and covering that maple syrup blood sugar spike so sometimes it’s just coconut oil/earth balance/fatty delicious oil, or peanut butter.

      I also LOVE Ali and Tom’s blog and have done their elimination diet. It did good things for me. I would really enjoy having a copy of their book.

      mmmmmmm It’s raining here and I want me some waffles now! ;)

    • Jamie

      I’m extremely new to going gluten free (still working on getting all the wheat/gluten out of my pantry), but I’ve heard nothing but great things about the Nourishing Meals cookbook (already!). I’m dying for a copy of it. My absolute favorite way to top a waffle is nutella and whipped cream! :-)

    • http://www.thewholegang.org Diane Eblin-thewholegang

      Man you are making me hungry!!!! I can’t wait to get my copy of this book!

    • Angela

      Wow! Can’t wait to try these! I’ve missed pancakes and waffles. Interesting idea, using them for sandwich bread! :)

    • http://glutenfreediva.com Emily Gabbard

      I just made GF blueberry pancakes this morning! I know, not waffles but only topping was pure maple syrup. I cooked them in a liberal amount of coconut oil so they had a very good taste. Probably fruit or choc chips would be my next favorite toppings.

    • http://heavenisabookstore.blogspot.com Heidi @ heavenisabookstore

      Just recently found out I may be celiac sensitive. I will find out at the end of the month, officially with testing, but for now, I am trying to go gluten free to assist in my hypothyroidism clean eating diet.

      Blueberry jam & bananas

    • Neva

      With Maple Syurp, or a spoonful of homemade crabapple jelly. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    • Barbara P.

      I am new to GF also. My daughter was recently diagnosed. So many different flour options. It’s overwhelming! I like my waffles with plain greek yogurt and jam. Although I’ve been known to have maple syrup, strawberries and whipped cream as well. Delicious!

    • Maggie

      Yum! Now I want waffles! I keep it simple – butter & maple syrup.

    • Sue

      My son is known as The Surfing Waffle on the net, new to being gluten free and having a new waffle maker, these will be a treat…a little butter and maple syrup is his favorite topping. Thanks!!

    • Michelle

      YUM! I love and adore waffles…and agree that they make the best sandwich bread. I love them topped with heirloom tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar….and I am one happy gf chick! This is how I love my waffles! (mainly because I eat the same thing every morning….a green monster smoothie!!!)

    • Stephanie

      These look DELISH. Before I discovered my wheat allergy (non-celiac), I hadn’t eaten white bread in years. Yet gluten free “treats” are so often white-bready. This has a lot of tapioca, but looks like a great balance with high-protein, flavorful flours that are so very nice in sweets.

      Thanks!

    • Rhoda

      My favorite topping for waffles is melted butter with honey.

    • stacey

      hmmmm I love waffles with just about anything atop them! ha…my favorite would probably be walnuts or pecans with warm maple syrup. YUMMMM. I have been curious about the cookbook — so maybe this will be my lucky day! smile…signed up for the newsletter too! be well…

    • Stacey

      I am always in favor of maple syrup. Add in some fresh fruit and yum! Some days though I do like apple sauce – especially with chocolate waffles. Mmmmm

    • Kim

      Our favorite topping on waffles is strawberries. We have tried to make gluten free vegan waffles several times, but still get a gooey inside when we try. Even though my daughter is still allergic to chicken eggs, we have discovered duck eggs! She can eat them! WooHoo! Let the waffles and pancakes with strawberries be enjoyed!

    • Lisa Wilson

      I love strawberries and bananas on waffles.

    • Brandi

      peaches…mmm……..

    • Roza

      My favorite waffle topping: nectarine sauce with lightly sauteed mix of walnuts and shredded coconut!!! Can’t wait to try out this new waffle recipe! (Would love to be added to the Nourishing Meals chance to win a book!)

    • http://www.freefoodfreedom.com Sarah

      As a gluten free vegan, I don’t eat waffles often… but when I make them I LOVE topping them with a combination of minced apples and pears with cardamon and/or cinnamon. I’ve even been known to make waffles for dinner and top them with black beans, cilantro and fresh tomatillos with a squeeze of lime. Love your blog!

    • http://www.roots-to-health.com Darcie Pawlick

      Hi! This is my favourite waffle topping: http://www.nourishingmeals.com/2009/08/blueberry-syrup.html Love it!!!

    • Pauline

      Coconut whipped cream (keep a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight, when scoop out the solid parts and whip up with some maple syrup as sweetener, and a tsp of vanilla – so delicious!) with fresh berries and sliced bananas! Also would substitute the 3 eggs in the recipe with egg replacer or flax seed mixture. Gluten free, vegan, and delicious :)

    • Kerry

      Real Maple Syrup and pecans or almond slivers, with bacon on the side!

    • Roza

      My favorite waffle topping: nectarine sauce (plain cooked down nectarines) with lightly sauteed mix of walnuts and shredded coconut!!!! Can’t wait to try this new waffle recipe!

    • rebecca

      My favorite is fresh raspberries with coconut whipped cream. :)

    • http://www.owensinchstones.blogspot.com Melaina Conroy

      Not that it’s great for you but Ice Cream! Yum!

    • Becky

      grass-fed butter and maple syrup!!!
      if I wanna splurge I will melt some Nutella and use it instead! ;-)

    • http://OneHandspunDay.com Christy | One Handspun Day

      Lots of berries, sliced bananas and a drizzle of honey…. mmmm

    • kim

      I unfortunately do not have a waffle iron, but when a waffle opportunity comes around, Strawberries and buttery maple syrup hits the spot

    • eve woodgaines

      Volcanic Huckleberries!

      • Deb

        Sliced strawberries with whipped cream and drizzle of maple syrup!

    • Ivy

      I am a huge fan of Ali and Tom’s blog, and would love to have a copy of their cookbook. The waffle recipe sounds delicious, and I can’t wait to try it! I often use waffles and pancakes to make sandwiches, both sweet and savory. My usual fillings are homemade nut butter and apple slices, or pesto, arugula and avocado. So yummy!

    • http://www.acraftygourmet.com A Crafty Gourmet

      Wow! These looks incredible! can’t wait to try out the recipe!

    • Janelle

      I will have to try this waffle recipe! Still looking for a yummy one for my dd who a recent gf kiddo. Our toppings we turn to most are my homemade spiced peach or spiced pear butter. Yummy!

    • Brandy

      Gluten free chocolate syrup, strawberries, and whipped cream!!!

    • Rita Biggs

      Can’t wait to try this…makes my mouth water just looking at the pictures. Lots of butter and maple syrup for me.

    • Rebecca

      I have been waiting with bated breath for Ali and Tom’s new cookbook! We devour the recipes in their first cookbook with relish! As for waffles, our most decadent favorite topping is homemade nutella and raspberries… oh my!

    • Monica

      Blueberries are our favorite topping.

    • Danielle Short

      When we were doing the candida diet, my husband discovered that running some xylitol in the coffee grinder with coconut flakes made a yummy powdered-sugar-like topping.

    • Heather

      My guilty pleasure topping is crushed walnuts with mini vegan chocolate chips!

    • Katie Pugh

      Toasted chopped pecans… how can an innocent little pecan be transformed into a slightly sweet show-stopping little event after just a little toastin’??

      If dairy is called for… stevia-sweetened Greek yogurt gets me every time.

    • kathleen

      I love my comfort food waffles especially on a cool morning with my homemade apples/cinnamon/maple syrup compote. Some maples syrup stirred into a Greek yogurt topping and crushed pecans over the top. Yum.

    • Steph

      mmmmm, strawberries and maple syrup!

    • Desiree

      I just bought some maple syrup and am now hopelessly craving waffles! My favourite topping is just that, maple syrup. A close second is fruit jams with whipped cream, or something to that degree. There is nothing healthy about my waffle experience and I’m totally okay with that.
      Thanks for the oppourtunity to win the cookbook! I have been pining for it since Ali announced there was one in the works!

    • Jessica Metz

      My favorite toppings come courtesy of my home state of Alaska – fresh picked Alaskan blueberries or raspberries and a little Birch Syrup! Delish!

    • Aimee

      I can do without bread, but those breakfast treats are ones I crave here and there. This recipe looks great, I think I will try it with the classic – whipped cream and one blueberry per square.

    • Nikki Smith

      My favorite toppings are fresh fruit with whip cream especially strawberries. :)

    • JoAnn Zyph

      I have been eating clean and gluten free for the past four months and love the difference it’s making in my life. I’m excited to learn more about this new lifestyle!

    • Lori

      My favourite topping is plain Greek yogurt drizzled with Saskatoon berry syrup. It’s a great combination of tart and sweet. Sooooo goooood!

    • Jeni Stender

      Thanks for posting the waffle recipe! I love waffles too, and can’t wait to try it. We love to saute fruit in a little maple syrup and top our waffles or pancakes with it. I usually do a mix of blueberries and apples or nectarines. Adding a little dash of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla is great too!

    • Maureen

      Organic peanut butter with bananas or blueberries! Maybe both! :)

    • kate halpin

      yay! these look so delicious. Do you think they could be cooked like pancakes? Thank you for sharing all your wonderful recipes!

    • Stacey McIntosh

      We are starting the GAPS diet for our 2 1/2 year old late talking son. I am super interested in the their section on food for kids and leaky gut. My favorite toppings for waffles are mangoes, shredded coconut, and maple syrup. I used to get Cafe Flora cornmeal waffles with this topping when we lived in Seattle. (We miss Seattle!)

    • Stephanie

      Anything with chocolate and berries works for me!

    • Nicole

      My family loves waffles! We always put mixed berries on them. Just starting the gluten free eating because of my 2yr old!!

    • Kristin W.

      Maple syrup, the real stuff not the fake gross stuff. Signed up for your newsletter also.

    • Joan

      I am new to gf too, but those waffles look fantastic. I love the idea of using them to make a sandwich! I am always looking for a healthy substitute for regular sandwich bread!

    • Sarah Mullin

      My favorite topping on waffles is fresh berries with a little bit of maple syrup.
      That recipe looks delicious I might just need to go out and get myself a waffle iron!

    • laura kays

      Blueberries in each square and 3 strawberries in the middle!

    • Kat

      My favorite topping for waffles is vanilla ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream.

    • http://blackwalnut-gh.com Geri

      I am a low carb no carb kinda gal so I do not indulge in waffles so much. But I do make them for guests and I believe their favorite topping would be Door County Cherries and real maple syrup.
      I bought 2 cookbooks and have given 1 away and would like to give another away. So I would like to be entered in the giveaway!!!
      I look forward to your newsletters and trying new recipes from your site!

    • Judy

      My favorite topping for waffles is lemon juice and confectioners sugar — hands down. The recipe sounds really good, and I am definitely going to try it soon. Thank you . . . the cookbook sounds wonderful too.

    • Shelly

      I am SO HAPPY to have found your site!

      One of my biggest problems with going GF has been dealing with my yearnings for waffles and bagels. I can hardly wait to try this recipe in the morning (just sent a text to my husband asking him to pick up the teff flour b/c I have everything else).

      I will top them with my favorite waffle toppings: peanut butter (Crazy Richards), organic bananas, and grated dark chocolate (70%)!!!!

      YUUUUUMMM! Thank you SO MUCH! : )

    • Anna Marie

      I love real maple syrup and butter OR honey butter . . . Either one and I haven’t had a waffle in years now because I can’t find a recipe that doesn’t contain corn, soy, or garbanzo! Excited for this one

    • Diana Campbell

      Waffles are best topped with French vanilla ice cream, drizzled with a bit of salted caramel sauce, and decorated with fresh fruit–blueberries, sliced peaches, or sliced apples. YUM!

    • Jackie

      We love to put strawberties and cashew cream on our waffles.

    • Renee findley

      I am trying to go gluten-free and finding it a little difficult, but I am determined!!!! I enjoy bananas on my waffles when I eat them.

    • Mary

      My favorite topping for waffles is sliced strawberries and cinnamon. Delish!!

    • Maria

      I’ve just starting eating gluten free and can’t believe how much better I feel!!! I need help with recipes that taste good and are healthy. My favorite waffle toppings are cinammon honey spread all over waffles and fresh blueberries on top. It’s so yummy can’t wait to try this waffle recipe. I sure hope I win the book!!

    • Lisa

      I love to top my waffles with whatever fresh fruit is in season (peaches, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries). If the fruit needs a little sweetening, drizzle with some agave syrup. A dallop of fresh whipped cream tops it all off perfectly. Yum!

    • Kathleen

      Peach gastrique with toasted halzelnuts

    • Wendy

      Mini chocolate chips (just when they start to melt!) and fresh sliced strawberries that have been slightly sugared. Mmmmm!!

    • Micah

      Easy, what ever is in season, in washington that gives us tons of options from huckleberries to salal berries. And if its winter, then what ever we froze or canned..

    • http://www.gfpastorswife.blogspot.com Stacey Johnson

      Waffles look super good! I have just about worn out the first Whole Life cookbook. The Brown Rice pancakes are a favorite!

    • joy

      Pure maple syrup. the. end. :)

    • http://www.gfpastorswife.blogspot.com Stacey Johnson

      Excited to try the waffles and so wanting the new book!

    • Arnie Adam

      I’ve always just relied on packaged, gluten-free waffle/pancake mix, but you’ve inspired me to stock up on the flours and give your recipe a try. I’ll have mine with a little organic butter, blueberries and a touch of maple syrup…but I’ll probably have them for supper!

    • Danielle Tomlinson

      New to GF to try and help my son with sensory processing disorder/sensory integration issues… so much to learn. I love waffles with bananas and walnuts!

    • Brenda

      I like them with butter and maple syrup almost as much as berries and whipped cream.

    • Crystal Derstine

      I like either maple syrup or ice cream on waffles. Haven’t had waffles since eliminating dairy. This recipe looks amazing! and I have been dreaming of this new cookbook… I have the old one…. so glad to have found your blog … can’t wait to see what tips and recipes you share.

    • Esme

      It has always been apple butter. Hopefully, I’ll still be able to eat it when all is said and done.

    • Amy

      Almond or cashew butter for extra protein and maple syrup:) If berries are in season, then a berry sauce with the syrup. Yum.

    • Nupur

      My favorite topping for waffles is apples and berries baked on the stove with a generous dash of cinnamon, lemon juice, and agave syrup. It’s a combination that makes me happy.

    • Randi

      I like to keep it simple – real maple syrup is all I need.

    • Janell

      Hate to say it but I still always ( and will always) love my creamy peanut butter and bananas with a drizzle of Agave nectar. Plain but oh so yummy. Just sayin’

    • Nichole

      My favorite topping is almond butter…and the waffles have to be have extra crunchy. :)

    • Anna

      my all time fave waffle topping is peanut butter.

    • BellinghamGirl

      Our fresh local strawberries…yum!

    • Melissa

      Thank you! I am so excited to try these in pancake form. I am new to GF eating and my son has severe nut allergies, so it gets tricky to cook for all of us. I love recipes that are GF and nut-free! I am looking forward to receiving your newsletter and picking up more recipe ideas. And I would LOVE to win a copy of their cookbook as I’ve been making as many of their recipes as possible w/o the nuts!

    • Arnaa

      Waffles aren’t a big thing Down Under, but the times I have had them, they tasted best with golden syrup.
      Your suggestion for using waffles as a substitute for sandwich bread is something I’d like to try. Finding bread that makes good sandwiches is the biggest pain ever.

    • Marisa

      carmelized bananas and walnuts :) yum! fingers crossed for winning the book – its already sold out on amazon!

    • Veronica

      Mashed bananas & amedei chocolate cream (better than nutella)

    • Joy B.

      Just maple syrup is all I need. These waffles sound great!

    • regina santos

      My old favorite….with chocolate ice cream and peanut butter syrup….now fresh bananas and strawberries with homemade whipped cream….

      fresh whipped creme or Greek yogurt
      Directions
      Combine the raspberries, blueberries, lemon juice, sugar and water in a small saucepan. Add cornstarch & water to the rest of the ingredient list, blend then heat the syrup and it will thicken. Gently bring to a boil and cook at a gentle boil for 5 minutes, stirring as needed to keep from burning.
      It will be a fruit syrup perfect for pancakes, ice cream topping, etc.
      Reduce heat to low; simmer the mixture gently until thick, about 8 minutes.
      Serve warm with a dollop of fresh whipped creme or Greek yogurt, if desired.

    • Wendy

      Strawberries, syrup, and whipped topping, though since having to go dairy free in addition to gluten free, egg free, yeast free plus, I havn’t learned how to make a DF topping. Would love the cookbook to learn more.

    • Steve

      Either Almond butter and bananas or berries. Recipe looks great, will have to give them a try.

    • Glen

      Put my wife, who was having symptoms of Lupus, gluten-free and within 2 weeks all symptoms subsided (along with some other natural supplements). Been 3 years now. Still haven’t mastered gluten-free though.

    • Traci

      I am so happy to find your blog! I am new to GF and sometimes it is a daunting task. :) My favorite waffle toppings are maple syrup, fresh strawberries, and real whipped cream!

    • Kimberly

      I love to cook down frozen blueberries…yum. My boys would say they love my chocolate topping…fluffy chocolate….I say yum to both!!! : )

    • Vic

      For a quick topping in the fall and winter months, I melt chocolate chips an then add stevia, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon. I just drizzle this on waffles.

    • Josie

      I like to blend up a fresh mango, 1 tab. of water, mixed with Chia seeds makes a great pancake topping.

    • Sarah

      We all love maple syrup! Subscribed to your newsletter and happy to have found you!

    • http://www.fidalgodesigns.com Amy Vergillo

      My favorite topping on waffles is yogurt, berries, what ever nuts/seeds I have on hand and a touch of honey!

      • Ellen

        Amy – I love your comment “whatever I have on hand”. It’s kind of fun to look in your pantry and/or frig and make it work!

    • Tori

      Yummy! Thanks for sharing!!! Would love to win the cookbook too.

    • LAURA

      After putting away all the ingredients to make the waffles… my favorite topping would be the good old natural maple syrup! Its TOO good to go without!

      My favorite waffle topping is strawberries and whip cream. I’m new to gluten free diet and would love to get a copy of that book!

      • Ellen

        Hey Claudette -so glad you stopped by! Good luck with your GF diet. You’ll find, after awhile, that it’s easy to be gluten free. Attitude is key and if you wake up every day and embrace it, you’ll be great!

    • Shari

      Thank you, Ellen, for the beautiful waffle recipe. Can’t wait to try it – and, can’t wait to try it in place of bread! Our favorite topping for waffles would have to be strawberries cooked with a little water, sugar, and Grand Marnier, a little real maple syrup, and pecans from our tree in the backyard. :)

    • Ashley

      I looove old-fashioned maple syrup! The 100 %, no additives kind. :) That’s my favorite topping. Add in a generous dot of dairy-free butter…yum!

      • Ellen

        I know Ashley – you just can’t beat maple syrup. A friend of mine has trees that she gets maple syrup from and I recently was a recipient of one of the jugs, and it is delicious.

    • Vanessa

      Hi Ellen, thank you for having such a great website….I just started a gluten-free, dairy-free diet and did not know where to start until I came across your recipes. My favorite topping for waffles is pecans.

    • Crystal C

      I love fruit, especially blueberry sauce on my waffles! I look forward to trying these out as I am on the hunt for a waffle recipe!

      • Ellen

        Crystal – I think your hunt has ended! This recipe is delicious! And blueberry sauce – yum! How delicious will that be!?! I pick blueberries every summer at a pick-you-own farm and freeze enough so that I have them all year. Me and blueberries!

    • Judy Clancy

      I love butter & maple syrup on my waffles @ home. When dining out, I like a berry maple syrup & sliced bananas! I hope I win :D

      • Ellen

        Judy – thanks for stopping by. Looks like you’re in good company. A lot of people have commented on loving butter and maple syrup!

    • Andrea

      They look amazing! Can’t wait to try them – I’m sure my kids will love them! I make a berry sauce also as topping. Sometimes plain, sometimes maple syrup and sometimes a sinful ‘cream’ topping :) Yum!

      I am very new to Celiac Disease and of course GF, I was just diagnosed last week and have not had anyone tell me what I can and cannot have. I’ve just been reading the computer and looking for recipes and your bypasses the ones I’ve seen so far. I am getting a little afraid as I’ve lost so much weight before being diagnosed and still 5.6 lbs in the last week so I’m afraid of getting malnurituted. I think I need a group or good book to go by and am sorry I’m venting, however; as I said this is pretty terrifying for me. I will be trying your recipes and following you on Pinterest! Thanks for the recipes you have posted, they look wonderful!

    • Mychelle

      My favorite in sliced banana’s with maple syrup.

      Thank you for the recipes and posts you place on line.

      May God bless you today, Mychelle

    • Judy Sizemore

      With all of my food allergies, it’s amazing that I can find anything tasty and unique. My latest fav topping is blueberries with some sunflower butter, drizzled with real maple syrup. Yummy!

    • Stephanie

      I am new to the gluten free diet. I am trying not to get overwhelmed!! There is so much to take in and I hope to find some great recipes to try and get on the road to feeling better.

      My favorite topping for waffles are homemade chokecherry syrup!!! Here in Montana they are the best berries to pick late summer! Also maple syrup!!

      Thanks

      I love PB on a warm waffle so the PB melts, then sprinkled with GF dark chocolate chips. Yum!

    • Sharyn Guthrie

      Organic butter and Ohio maple syrup!

    • zosia

      My favourite topping for waffles is…PEACHES!

    • yvonne sippy

      these were seriously delicious. reminded me of a wheat bread that i’ve missed. i added hulled hemp seeds to the mix which meant that i used the 3cups of milk instead of 2 1/2. my kids are not good gluten free ambassadors but they were really impressed using these waffles as bread for their breakfast egg sandwiches! i was especially happy that i used grains other than predominantly brown rice. well done and thank you!

      • Ellen

        You’re most welcome Yvonne! So glad to be of service!!!
