Light Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles are amazing. They are gluten free and dairy free (optional). This recipe is definitely my favorite waffle recipe. So yum!
Light Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles are amazing and gluten free.
Did you know that waffles are so special there are two special days for them: International Waffle Day is March 25 and August 24 is National Waffle Day? We celebrated early and had these Light Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles for breakfast yesterday. I made a double batch and froze the leftovers. They are easy to reheat in our toaster oven. I love to keep some in the freezer. If you cannot tolerate butter, I suggest you substitute coconut oil. It works great and leaves just a hint of coconut flavor. Try them. These Light and Fluffy Gluten-free Waffles are awesome. Better than any waffles I have eaten.
How to Tell if It's Gluten Free
If you are celiac or very sensitive to gluten, then you should make sure all your ingredients say "gluten free." That will assure that there is no cross-contamination of gluten in your ingredients. In addition, read every label to make sure none of the other allergens are present in your ingredients. This works for just about anything you are allergic or sensitive to. Be careful and don't assume a product doesn't include one of your problem foods. For instance, regular iodized salt generally contains corn because cornstarch is used as a caking agent.
What You Need
For this recipe, you will need measuring cups and spoons, a big bowl, an electric mixer, and a waffle maker.
I make mine on a double waffle maker, similar to the commercial waffle makers in hotels. I absolutely love it. It's so easy to use. Heat it up. When it beeps, it's ready for the batter. Pour the batter in the center, measured in the cup that comes with it. Close the lid and turn it over as instructed. When it beeps, it's done. Perfectly. If you don't have one, I highly recommend you get the one I have, this Double Belgian Waffle Maker (affiliate link).

These are the best waffles I've ever eaten. I make a batch of minis and freeze them. I do have a question regarding using the toaster to heat them. They contain a generous amount of butter. Will that damage my toaster in the long run?
I have never seen any damage in my toaster oven. I’m not sure how it would word in a regular toaster but probably the same.
