Not long ago, Miss J bought her own little waffle maker. She used some birthday money and has been happily making waffles since then. She can use it on her own and she is very pleased with her purchase.
One morning, she wanted me to eat waffles with her. So, I looked up a couple of waffle recipes and realized I needed to modify to make my own. Most wheat free recipes call for a prepackaged, gluten-free baking mix. Lots of the baking mixes still contain corn so they are not for me.
I have, however, come up with a pretty consistent replacement for the baking mixes and so I just modified that a bit, modified the recipe a bit, and made some super yummy, VERY filling waffles. I got to eat waffles with the girls! YUM!
Wheat Free Waffles
- 1/4 C almond flour
- 2 T coconut flour
- 2 T flaxseed meal/ground flaxseed
- 1/2 t xantham gum
- 1 t baking powder
- 1-2 t sugar, to taste
- 1 t vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1/4 C milk
- 1 t olive oil or coconut oil (melted)
- Mix the dry ingredients together.
- Mix the wet ingredients together.
- Add the dry mixture to the wet and combine well.
- Cook in a waffle maker. This should make one large waffle or three mini-waffles.
- Top as desired.
Enjoy breakfast treats with the family while sticking to the healthy diet you need! These are so good, you feel like you are indulging yourself. At least, I did. 🙂 If you make these waffles, I would love to know how they turn out for you. I am constantly tweaking recipes so feedback is helpful.

Yay! You could have waffles with the girls! WOOT WOOT! we like our waffle maker too. 🙂
We had gotten rid of ours years ago because it was not a good one. This one is small but I think it will be good.
