Gluten free Belgian waffles are not only easy to make, but they are utterly delicious! Light and fluffy, just like they ought to be!

To help you enjoy this special breakfast treat again whenever the mood hits, I’m sharing my gluten free Belgian Waffle recipe using my award-winning gfJules™ Pancake and Waffle Mix!  SO easy!

I’ve also provided you with directions on how to make these gluten free Belgian Waffles from scratch — also super easy, so don’t be deterred if you don’t have my pancake mix on hand yet.

As long as you have my gfJules™ Flour, you’ll be good to go. (All gluten free flour blends behave differently – to read more about substituting with gluten free flours, hop to my article on gluten free flours).

My award-winning gfJules Flour and my gfJules Pancake and Waffle Mix are both made from the highest quality gluten free flours that are light and clean – no grit from brown rice flour and no funny taste or smell from bean flours, so your pancakes won’t taste “gluten free” either.

Which means you may have to fight the non-gluten free family members for extra waffles, but that’s ok. It’s fun to share!

If you’re using my mix, you’ll only need half of the gfJules™ Pancake and Waffle Mix, so you’ll still have another breakfast at the ready to choose either gluten free Belgian waffles or pancakes!

Or just double the recipe and make the whole mix. Such tough choices!

I’ve made these dozens of times at my booth at gluten free expos (maybe you were there?) and they’re always a hit. I also make them vegan (egg-free and dairy-free) every time! Once folks taste how light these waffles are, they are in heaven. You never have to settle for dry, cardboard gluten free waffles again. I promise!

The best way to make them vegan is to use applesauce or pumpkin puree in place of the egg and use your favorite vegan milk/mylk OR protein powder or drink (I like OWYN* vegan protein).

I also use OWYN protein powder and drinks to add extra nutrition in recipes like homemade vegan yogurt, gluten free Overnight Oats Waffles, gluten free crepes, and even gluten free Black Bottom Cupcakes, and these waffles turned out just as delicious. But feel free to just use milk/mylk; these gluten free Belgian Waffles turn out great either way!

I really think I like making them this way even better! With the extra vanilla from the OWYN drink, I didn’t even need maple syrup.

Now that’s saying something!

Gluten Free Belgian Waffles Recipe

Yield: 6-8 waffles
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Light and fluffy gluten free Belgian Waffles -- it doesn't get any better than this (aka worth getting out of bed for!).





Preheat waffle iron to medium-high heat setting.

If using eggs: In a small metal bowl, place the egg whites; place the yolks in a separate bowl. Whisk the egg whites until frothy (preferably using an electric mixer). Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat egg yolks OR applesauce and oil together (and vanilla extract if making from scratch).

In a separate bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients if making from scratch (OR 1/2 gfJules™ Pancake and Waffle Mix ). Add dry ingredients to the large bowl, followed by the milk or protein drink.

Whisk together until only very small lumps remain in the batter, then fold in the egg whites gently, if using eggs.

Scoop ½ – 2/3 cup of batter into preheated waffle iron. Spread with a silicone spatula to ensure the mixture is evenly distributed. Close the lid of the waffle iron and cook for 5 minutes or when your iron alerts you that the waffle is cooked.

Once cooked, open waffle iron cover and loosen the waffle, if necessary, with a fork or silicone spatula. Remove to a plate to serve or cool while cooking remaining waffles. Serve with confectioner's sugar, syrup or warmed berries.

Yield: 6-8 Belgian Waffles, depending on size.

  1. Love Belgian Waffles & this recipe made egg free, dairy free milk is still perfect Belgian Bliss! Thank you for both the ingredients recipe from scratch as well as having the blend in your shop. Sometimes, time is of the essence! But both are excellent & I appreciate the no egg, no dairy variations.
