12 to16 (4-inch) waffles


  • 1 ¾ cup Gluten-Free Flour Mix (recipe below)

  • 2 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 ¾ cup milk

  • cup butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla

  • Butter and/or desired gluten-free syrup (optional)

Gluten-Free Flour Mix

  • 3 cup white rice flour

  • 3 cup potato starch

  • 2 cup sorghum flour

  • 4 teaspoon xanthan gum


  1. In a medium bowl stir together Gluten-Free Flour Mix, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture.

  2. In another medium bowl combine eggs, milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Let stand 5 minutes to thicken slightly.

  3. Add batter to a preheated, lightly greased waffle baker according to manufacturer's directions (use a regular or Belgian waffle baker). Close lid quickly; do not open until done. Bake according to manufacturer's directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grid. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm. If desired, top with additional butter and/or syrup.

Gluten-Free Flour Mix

  1. In a large airtight container whisk together rice flour, potato starch, sorghum flour, and xanthan gum. Cover and store at room temperature for up to 3 months.

Chocolate Waffles

Prepare as directed, except reduce Gluten-Free Flour Mix to 1 1/2 cups, increase sugar to 1/4 cup, and add 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder to flour mixture. Fold 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips into batter. (Lightly coat the waffle baker with gluten-free nonstick cooking spray between each waffle to prevent sticking.) If desired, top with gluten-free chocolate-flavor syrup.Nutrition analysis per serving: same as above except 186 calories, 4 g protein, 27 g carbohydrate, 8 g total fat, (5 g sat. fat), 8 g total sugar, 5% iron
