Who was it who once said, “Waffles are just like pancakes but with pockets to hold the syrup.” Okay, that was probably just me at the breakfast table last weekend, but, really, how great are those little square indentations? I love waffles drowned in maple syrup, smothered with fresh strawberries or strawberry jam or strawberry syrup, filled with blueberries or melted chocolate chips, or covered in whipped cream. Blogger Jessica has also shared her liking for gluten-free waffles. While Eggo has yet to make a gluten-free waffle, there are a few gluten-free frozen waffle brands out there that are ready to be popped in the toaster or microwave for a quick easy delicious gluten-free breakfast.
- Nature’s Path offers gluten-free frozen waffles in several flavors, including plain Homestyle Waffles, tangy Buckwheat Wildberry Waffles with blueberry bits, and Mesa Sunrise Waffles made with cornmeal, amaranth, and quinoa.
- Van’s Natural Foods has an even wider range of frozen gluten-free waffles; their Wheat-Gluten Free Waffles are offered in Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry, Buckwheat, Flax, and Totally Natural flavors. They also have Wheat-Gluten Free Totally Natural Mini Waffles which are perfect for kids.
- Kinnikinnick also offers frozen gluten-free waffles, in Original Homestyle and Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Homestyle flavors.
As convenient as frozen waffles are, if you want a little bit more of a home-cooked taste without too much effort, quite a few brands also sell gluten-free waffle mixes. Arrowhead Mills has a Gluten-Free Pancake & Waffle Mix, Gluten Free Pantry has a Brown Rice Pancake & Waffle Mix, Hodgson Mill has a Pancake & Waffle Mix, Hol-Grain has a GF Pancake & Waffle Mix, Namaste Foods has a GF Waffle/Pancake Mix, and Simply Organic has a gluten-free Organic Pancake & Waffle Mix.
And of course, you can make your own waffles from scratch. Grouprecipes.com offers this relatively simple gluten-free waffle recipe that uses brown rice flour, tapioca flour, and potato starch.
