Gluten-Free Waffle Recipe

Gluten-free waffle recipe - Dr. Axe

Waffles have always been a breakfast treat to me. Since they require a little more effort than eggs or pancakes, I’ve always associated waffles with lazy weekend mornings. They remind me of spending time with family over the kitchen table and enjoying a fresh batch.

And, of course, when I say waffles, I mean the homemade kind. Nope, you won’t find the frozen toaster variety in my house — and once you whip up this Gluten-Free Waffle Recipe using gluten-free flours, they’ll take a permanent hiatus from your home, too.

These waffles are wheat-free and insanely delicious. They’re naturally sweetened with healing honey and use ghee instead of butter, a great substitute for people who are lactose intolerant. Start a new tradition at your house and make this gluten-free waffle recipe ASAP!

Then add in the rest of the ingredients — flour through vanilla extract. Mix them all up until just combined.

Next, lightly grease your preheated waffle iron. Save time and use the ghee for this step, too. In batches of 1/2 –3/4 cups, carefully pour the mixture into the waffle iron and cook until it looks crisp and golden brown.

Seriously, it’s hard to make this gluten-free waffle recipe any easier — and the waffles it creates are so much better than anything pre-made!

The waffles are terrific with a pat of grass-fed butter and a drizzle of maple syrup. Or how about adding some fresh berries and a dusting of coconut sugar? You could even use these waffles to make some creative brunch sandwiches. With all those healthy ingredients, gluten-free waffles are sure to become a new tradition in your home, too.
