Perfectly fluffy on the inside, crisp on the outside and sweetened with only bananas. This is the only gluten-free waffle recipe you will ever need!
Waffle Wednesday, anyone? I’ve been gluten-free for a while and have been playing around with a gluten-free waffle recipe for quite some time. Most of them have been okay, but not a recipe I really wanted to share. But now, my friends, here is one I can’t wait to share. These have a few simple ingredients and blow any store bought kind out of the water!
What Keeps These Gluten-free Waffles Clean?
- Clean flours and whole grain – this recipe uses a combination of almond flour and oat flour.
- Naturally sweetened – the only sweetener you will find in these gems is from a banana.
- Coconut oil – a very clean, natural oil that is great for baking.
What to Serve With These Waffles
My favorite way to serves these is with fresh or frozen fruit and if I’m feeling extra sassy, I’ll drizzle on some pure maple syrup too… I know, i’m such a rebel sometimes.
For some protein with my breakfast i’ll typically spread either almond or cashew butter on top. Adding some nut butter is a great way to add protein and helps keep you satisfied all morning.
This recipe makes 5 waffles using a classic round waffle maker. I really like this one. If using a larger waffle iron, you may only get 4 waffles with this recipe. If you don’t eat them right out of the waffle iron I recommend throwing them in the toaster for a minute to help crisp out the outside again before eating.

Simple Gluten-free Waffles
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1 1/2 oat flour certified gluten-free if needed
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 ripe, mashed banana
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cups non-dairy milk dairy milk works too if you're not dairy-free
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- Set your waffle iron to med-high heat.
- In a large bowl add almond flour, oat flour, baking powder, and salt and mix to combine.
- Create a well in center of the dry ingredients and add in mashed banana and oil. Mix banana and oil (this will help the oil from solidifying again once you add the cold ingredients). After the oil is mixed with the mashed banana, add the egg, milk, and vanilla and mix to combine.
- Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, scoop batter onto pre-heated waffle iron. Use a heaping 1/2 cup of batter per waffle.
- Using a fork, gently remove waffle once cooked. Repeat above step until all waffles are cooked.
- Batter will be thick. It will continue to thicken as it sits (the oat flour absorbs the milk). If needed, you can add 1-2 more tablespoons of milk after you’ve made a few of the waffles.
- If not eating waffles right away I recommend putting in the toaster for a minute or so to crisp up the outside.
- These are great for freezing!
