Gluten and Dairy Free Belgian Waffles

 Waffles are a breakfast staple in many homes across the nation, and perfecting making gluten and dairy free Belgian Waffles is not as difficult as one might think.  I remember when Michaela was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease that I worried about being unable to duplicate the pancake and waffle taste that she had come to know.

There are many Belgian Waffle makers on the market, but I prefer the Cuisinart 4 Slice Waffle Maker which gives four 4 inch waffles per serving, allowing me to adjust the temperature for browning and crispiness.

My recipe for gluten and dairy free Belgian Waffles is based off of the original Cuisinart recipe, and with a few modifications to make the recipe gluten and dairy free, you have the same great taste of a waffle that melts in your mouth!


Gluten and Dairy Free Belgian Waffles

  • Prep time:
  • Cook time:
  • Total time:
  • Yield: 18-20 Waffles
  • Difficulty: easy


  • 4 cups Sweet White Rice Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp gluten free baking powder
  • 11⁄2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tspn gluten free baking soda
  • 31⁄2 cups Almond Milk
  • 2⁄3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs


  1.  Whisk together Sweet White Rice Flour Blend, sugar, GF baking powder, salt, and baking soda and set aside.

  2. Separate yolks of eggs into a large bowl and whites into a small bowl.  With an immersion blender, whip egg whites and set aside.  If you don’t have an immersion blender, an electric mixer works just as well.

  3. Add the milk and oil to the egg yolks and beat on medium speed with electric mixer just until blended.

  4.  Next, fold in egg whites.  Set aside to rest for approximately 5 minutes.

  5.  At this point, preheat your waffle maker.  I place a cookie tray under it in case there is any spill-over.  This make clean-up a breeze.

  6.  Once the waffle maker is preheated, you are ready to start making waffles!

  7. The batter is thick.  With a ladle, begin in the center of the maker and pour the batter outwards to about 2 inches from edge.  With the back of the ladle and moving around in a circular motion, move the batter to cover the maker.  Remember, do not fill entire waffle maker.  Once the lid is closed, the batter will spread up as well as out!

  8. The Cuisinart Waffle maker’ has an indicator light that allows you to easily know when the waffle is done cooking.  Cooking on temperature #4 will give you a light, yellow-golden waffle.  #5 gives a crispier waffle with a melt-in-your-mouth center.

  9. Once removed, add Vegan butter and Pure Maple Syrup and you are ready for a hardy breakfast!

      Linda, since getting the desire to whip up one batch, I believe I have made 3 more batches. I can’t keep them coming fast enough LOL. Tonight, my neighbor even asked if I would make him and his wife some. I guess I’ll be busy this weekend once again. But, they are soooo good!
