Gluten-Free Belgian Waffles Recipe


These are hands down the best gluten-free waffles I have ever made or eaten! I honestly had no idea how much flavor a little yeast would add – I only made them because my mom used to rave about Belgian yeast waffles, and I though that they’d be fun to try. Boy was she right!

These are Ah-mazing! I’ve never made a waffle, especially a gluten-free waffle with this much flavor and integrity. They’re soft, springy, fluffy, and slightly crispy on the outside, just like a waffle should be.

And yes, they’re risen only by yeast, no baking powder or baking soda at ALL.

They do take a little bit of time to make, because you want to let the batter rise for about an hour before you cook them. That means it’s hands-off time. What I did was mix up the batter first thing, they made beds, took a shower, cuddles the kids who’d just woken up… you know, morning stuff. Totally worth the wait!

And I honestly don’t think I’ll be making Gluten-free baking powder waffles anymore. That’s how impressed I am. You’ve got to try this recipe!

  1. thanks for your great gluten free waffles we had them with gluten free mango and coconut frozen yogurt and fresh strawberries and even though we only got 4 good size waffles they were delicious and so easy to make …. thanks Sue

    1. Glad you liked them! My waffle iron is one of those that makes square, toaster-sized waffles, and this batch made 8 if I remember correctly, so I can see it making 4 of the big round waffles.

  2. Have you tried making extra to freeze? We just found out we have to go gluten free. My kids love sticking homemade waffles that we have frozen into the toaster for breakfast!
