These Gluten Free Waffles are also dairy free, soy free, egg free, nut free and vegan.
In case you haven’t noticed, I really like waffles! This is my third waffle recipe on Eat or Drink. If you missed the other waffle recipes, I’ve done Pumpkin Pie Waffles and Coconut Waffles. All of the waffles are delicious, but this new waffle recipe is really coming in strong ready to compete for the best. They seriously taste like a buttermilk waffle and a sugar cookie had a baby – which is a really good thing! Trevor and I actually fought over who got to eat the last one and I’m kind of getting sad there’s no more as I write this.
What really inspired this waffle recipe was my love for pie crust. I wanted to see what would happen if I put pie crust in a waffle maker. I started out the same way I make my pie crust (the same pie crust I used for this apple pie). Then instead of following through with making actual pie crust, I decided to merge my pie crust recipe with my waffle recipe. The result: a super buttery and deliciously sweet waffle.
When I made these I ended up putting some in the freezer so I could have toaster waffles later. The key to making good waffles that toast up great later on, is slightly under-cooking them in your waffle maker. That way when you do toast them, they don’t get too crispy or burnt.
These waffles are sweet and buttery. They are such a treat for any weekend. You'd be shocked that they're gluten free and vegan.
