• The Best Gluten Free Multi-Grain Waffle Recipe

    by Ellen on September 11, 2012 · 169 comments

     

    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. If you would like a chance to win this amazing book, READ CAREFULLY! (WINNERS CHOSEN – SEE BELOW)

    Gluten Free Whole Grain Waffles

    Serving Size: about 8 waffles

    Ingredients

    Dry Ingredients:

    1 c. teff flour

    ¾ c. tapioca flour

    ½ c. brown rice flour

    ½ c. sorghum flour

    ½ c. millet flour

    ½ c. quinoa flour

    1 tbsp baking powder

    2 - 4 tsp cinnamon

    1 tsp baking soda

    ½ tsp sea salt

    Wet Ingredients:

    3 large organic eggs

    6 tbsp melted coconut oil or melted butter (I used coconut oil)

    4 tbsp maple syrup

    2 ½ - 3 c. milk (I used almond milk)

    Instructions

    1. Heat your waffle iron. Coat it lightly with coconut oil or butter.
    2. In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients, start with 2 ½ cups of milk, to the dry and whisk well.
    3. Make one waffle and if it seems too dry, add more milk. It will depend on how you measure, some of us over-measure slightly and some of us under-measure.
    4. Cook waffles according to your waffle iron's instructions.

    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!

Waffles and pancakes are my weakness and teff is one of my favorite flours. I will definitely be making these! Thanks for the inspiration!

    My favorite way to top waffles is with hot baked apple slices and a caramel

    than eating apple pie!

    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!

    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 September 12, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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! ;)

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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 :)

    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! : )

    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

    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!

    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!!

    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!

    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!

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!

    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.

    I was diagnosed with Celiac in 1951, and love sharing recipes and information! If you ~ like us, love topping your pancakes with fruit syrups and a dollop of whipped creme, this Blueberry & Raspberry topping is almost perfect-

    Blueberry & Raspberry Waffle and Pancake Topping
    Original Recipe Yield approximately 3 cups

    Ingredients
    1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
    1 cup frozen blueberries
    1 tsp. of fresh squeezed lemon juice
    1/3 cup white sugar or palm sugar
    1/4 cup water
    1 Tbsp. cornstarch added to 2 Tbsp. cold water
    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.

    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!

    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!
