These Gluten Free Apple Fritter Waffles are also dairy free, soy free, egg free, nut free, and vegan.
If you haven’t realized by now, I’m obsessed with making gluten free waffles. I love how a waffle is just a blank template begging to be played with. I’ve made Pumpkin Pie Waffles, Sugar Cookie Waffles, Coconut Waffles, I’ve even made Pizza Hashbrowns in my waffle maker. Gluten free waffles are so easy to make and that’s another reason why I love them. For some reason, gluten free vegan pancakes are so much harder to make. They always get a gooey texture and end up too flat. That’s not the case with gluten free vegan waffles. They always come out perfect!
These Gluten Free Apple Fritter Waffles are amazing. The apples are soft and the waffle has an amazing buttery sugar taste. I used brown sugar in these waffles to really add a nice rich flavor. They seriously taste like an apple fritter, but they’re so much easier to make.
Buying a Waffle Maker for your Gluten Free Waffles
If you haven’t pulled the trigger and bought a waffle maker yet, I highly suggest you do. As you can see from all of my waffle recipes, I get so much use out of my waffle maker. As I said above, gluten free waffles are much easier to make than gluten free vegan pancakes. Something about the waffle maker really gives any gluten free vegan waffle batter the perfect texture. Plus, waffle makers aren’t just a single use appliance. As you can see from my Pizza Hashbrowns recipe, your waffle maker does not have to be used just for waffles.
If you are ready to pull the trigger, here are some good waffle makers you can buy on Amazon:
- Cuisinart Belgian Waffle Maker – This would be the perfect waffle maker. It’s a great size and has the square shape. It’s similar to the one I own, but it’s much cheaper. If my waffle maker broke I would get this one. Why? Because it has removable plates making it easy to clean. Trust me, you’ll hate not having that (I would know).
- Hamilton Beach Waffle Maker – This one is a great cheap option.
- Hamilton Beach Waffle Maker 2 squares – This is the cheapest option of all and is perfect if you only need 2 squares.
The Best Gluten Free Flour for Waffles
As you guys probably already know, I don’t use any storebought gluten free flour blends. Through my own trial and error, I have come up with my own flour blend recipes. The two best gluten free flour blends for waffles are my Gluten Free Basic Flour Blend and my Gluten Free Self-Rising Flour Blend. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule. But, in general, these will be your best bet for waffles. In this recipe, I chose to use the Gluten Free Self-Rising Flour Blend because it makes any recipe easier. It’s almost exactly the same as the Gluten Free Basic Flour Blend, the only difference is it already has rising agents mixed in. That means one less step when you’re baking!
