Gluten Free Waffles


A wee while ago I put up a post about starting a gluten free diet, and somebody, (Francis or Poll I think) kindly gave me a recipe for waffles. I have now bought a waffle maker, and would like to try the recipe, but can’t find my post - I’ve tried doing a search for diet, posts by me, gluten (can’t remember what I called it), and I’ve even tried just searching under the tags, but I’m not getting anywhere! Could whoever it was that gave me the recipe please pm it to me? I promise to write it down this time!!

Thank you very much

Found it!!

Hi Mike,

I’ve cut gluten out of my diet, so nothing with wheat, barley, millet or rye allowed - anything with flour, beer, etc has been cut - I really hope it works, but on the other hand, I kind of hope it doesn’t!

It’s to do with the theory that only eating food that our prehistoric ancestors would have eaten will reduce inflammation. A lot of people find that it helps, so I think it’s worth a bash.

I’ve already cut red meat out of my diet - I only eat bird or fish now, if I try red meat, I’m floored with fatigue.

Might try a sandwich tomorrow and see what happens.

No it wasn’t a recipe from me Luisa- but l would like a copy - and where did you get you waffle iron from?


I got an electric waffle maker for about £30 (Andrew James) from Amazon.

This is the post I got from izzi1977…

I have just dug out my waffle recipe (makes about 10 depending on Waffle Iron): 300g Plain Flour ( I use Dove Farm GF Plain), 2 tbsp Sugar, 1 tbsp baking powder, 1/2tsp Bicarbonate of soda, 1/2tsp salt, 390ml milk, 85ml veg oil, 2 eggs and 1 tsp Vanilla essence.
It seems like a lot of baking powder, but it does work. If you use Self raising flour just leave it out, but keep in the Bicarb. I usually double up the quantity as it keeps for a good few days in the fridge.
I just stick everything in the mixer as it goes and then pour into the waffle iron…Great on their own, with lemon curd, jam or Chocolate spread.
Enjoy x

I’m going to have a go later on,

Hi Luisa, you’ve got my taste buds tingling with talk of fresh waffles! Please let us know if the waffle maker fom Amazon is any good as I’ve just put one in my basket! I sometimes make Scotch pancakes for breakfast on a Sunday, but I would be much more popular if I made waffles (dripping with choccie spread or treacle!). Not much good for the waistline though, I am not sure whether I could stick to just eating one! Enjoy your waffles! Lilbill x

HI Luisa

I’d like the waffle recipe too. I follow the same diet as you (paleo?) and thought I might share my favourite dairy/sugar/gluten free breakfast recipe, banana pancakes…

Mash 1 ripe banana

1 or 2 eggs (depending on banana size, small banana 1 egg, large banana 2 eggs)

1 tbsp almond butter

1tsp cinnamon, or more to your taste

Whisk together, heat coconut oil in frying pan, pour in small dollops of the mixture, not too big or they are hard to flip as quite fragile, myabe 3 or 4 per average frying pan. Fry and turn. Sprinkle with cinnamon, eat with strong coffee.

Hi Amylou,

The waffle recipe is 2 posts up from yours - they’re really nice, not as sweet as I expected, but that’s good. I just cut out gluten, but after an experiment yesterday I’ve knocked it on the head - I ate gluten, and have had no ill effects today, so it’s not working. I didn’t eat gluten for 6 weeks.

Those pancakes sound lovely, thanks for the recipe,

I’ve used the waffle maker twice, and it’s not bad, the second time they didn’t cook evenly, but I think that was to do with my uneven batter distribution on the plates. You can’t remove the plates, so if they get messy they’re going to be difficult to clean, but you can get in about with a sponge.
