Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Waffles - Gluten Free

Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Waffles - Gluten Free recipe by Barefeet In The KitchenI'll go ahead and admit that I am a bit of a waffle snob. I wouldn't dream of ordering waffles from a restaurant. For years, I made our favorite Whole Wheat Waffles on a regular basis. After more than a few botched attempts, I am very happy to finally have a gluten free waffle that meets my standards.

Light and fluffy in texture while staying crisp on the outside; these are really great waffles, whether you are in the habit of eating gluten free or not. I loved this version. The batter was thinner than typical waffle or pancake batter, but it worked beautifully.

If you are not in need of a Gluten Free breakfast; here are some other breakfast ideas:
Yield: 8 waffles
(printable recipe)

1 1/3 cups brown rice flour
2/3 cup tapioca starch
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 3/4 cups buttermilk or 1 3/4 cups milk, plus 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat the waffle iron. Make the buttermilk and set aside. Whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the milk and eggs and whisk to combine. Add the melted butter and whisk once more. Pour onto a hot waffle iron and cook until lightly browned. Serve with the toppings of your choice. Enjoy!

FREEZER MEAL: Let the waffles cool completely, before storing them in an airtight ziploc bag. Reheat the frozen waffles in a toaster oven or in the microwave.

  7. I love these, they look perfect! Do you think it will work fine to substitute almond or soy milk with the lemon juice to make them dairy free? My sister is coming to visit in December and I need breakfast options :)

    1. I'm sure that almond milk would work fine. I am not familiar with soy. Good luck and have fun with your sister!

  8. Looks yummy! Do you think it would be possible to use cornstarch in place of the tapioca starch?

  10. These are incredible. I'm newly gluten-free (thyroid problems), and made them for a brunch of gluten-eating people yesterday. They all called them the best waffles they've had - with or without gluten. Thank you!

  13. We just made these and they were awesome! They really were light and fluffy. I used cornstarch instead of tapioca starch and I used plain milk because I forgot to add the vinegar. We also added chocolate chips, because I love chocolate. :) Thank you much!
