Gluten free waffles are always a treat in our house. They are versatile and filling for hungry tummies. They can be 'dressed up' as dessert or used in a savory meal. They can be made quickly and with little fuss or they can be a slow, lazy Sunday morning family breakfast.
What are gluten free waffles made of?
You tend to find that (most) store-bought gluten free waffle mixes are made of a generic gluten free flour substitute, and most brands are pretty tasty and very convenient when you're in a rush. There is very little taste difference between 'normal' and gluten free waffles.
However, gluten free waffles are so easy to make at home and most recipes call for the simple ingredients that you're likely to have in your pantry. So if you have a little time, I would always suggest avoiding the preservative filled packages and giving the following recipes a try.
The following collection of recipes allow for various dietary requirements, such as vegan, dairy and oil free and keto/low carb options, and they are all gluten free. It's nice to have gluten free options!
Can You Freeze Gluten Free Waffles?
Just like 'normal' waffles, gluten free waffles are at their very best when they are warm and fresh. However, for the sake of convenience, they are perfectly okay to be frozen and reheated too. Because of course, life is busy with kids and having a quick snack to pull out of the freezer can be a lifesaver!
Store any leftover gluten free waffles in a freezer safe bag or container for up to 3 months. Ideally, let them thaw in the fridge or at room temperature and heat them in the oven at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until warm. In a pinch, they can be microwaved (30 seconds works well with my microwave).
Update: I recently reheated a couple of gluten free waffles in our air-fryer and it works so well, they were crisp again and they tasted perfect!
