GCGF Belgian Waffles

I am a big fan of Belgian waffles, however, most recipes call for glutenous flour bases. In this case, we can create a delicious Belgian waffle product with gluten free and allergen free base. Gluten free white rice flour is a versatile base with a milder taste than most gluten flour bases. Also note that white rice flour is not mandatory for this recipe. Some substitutes include buckwheat flour and chickpea flour. The pear juice is an optional flavorful addition, but fresh pear juice is an underrated option for cardiovascular health. With hypertension becoming more and more prevalent in the United States, the potassium levels in pear juice relieve strain on blood vessels and the iron in pear juice is great for increasing red blood cell production.

The scientific evidence shows that apple or pear intake significantly decreases risk of cardiovascular disease, type two diabetes, and all-cause mortality. Most studies observe a decrease in BMI which minimizes strain on the human body in general. “Our review found that higher intake of apple, pear, or combined apple and pear was associated with a significant decrease in BMI in RCTs, and a significant decrease in the risk of cerebrovascular disease, CVD/CMD mortality, diabetes, and all-cause mortality in observational studies.”

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh pear juice (or substitute)
  • 1 cup  vegetable broth
  • 1 cup cooked beans (or sweet potato; see variations)
  • 1/2 cup gluten free potato flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten free white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 2 Tbl. GFCF baking powder
  • dash of sea salt (or small amount of regular salt)
  • optional: nuts, such as pecans

Preparation:

  • Ingredients are best if they are blended together, including the nuts, and remember the nuts are not a dire need if you are allergic to any.
  • Heat waffle maker and place batter on hot waffle maker.  
  • Cook the waffles for roughly 5 minutes. 
  • This dish can be served with any additional protein or fruit dishes if desired.

    I just made the most delicious Belgian waffle with this recipe. They are gluten free, but they taste just as good as any other Belgian waffle out there.

  12. elxyg03

    They are also much healthier than other recipes because they don’t call for sweet/sugary ingredients like vanilla extract or coconut sugar

    I’ve been meaning to try Belgian waffles for a while, but I’m definitely a gluten-free eater. I was really excited when I found this recipe because it’s GF and doesn’t call for any flour at all!

    I love these belgian waffles! We, my 7-year-old and I, have been eating them for breakfast every week for the past month. The recipe is easy to follow and adapts well to what I have on hand.

  19. leormon.jonson

    I love Belgian waffles. I had a glutenous flour allergy for about six months, so I couldn’t eat them. But then I discovered these GFCF belgian waffles and now I can have my favorite breakfast again.

  20. sntran

    These are the best! I love waffles, but am not a huge fan of other gluten-free products. This is not the case with these

  21. araetaredan

    They’re so delicious and I never feel hungry after eating them which is great because sometimes other gluten free foods make me ravenous.

  22. skyine_zy14

    Definitely recommend getting these if you’re looking for a tasty, healthy breakfast or snack.

This one is a quick and easy one folks! I like having sausage seasoning on hand just like I love having a taco seasoning on hand. If some ground pork looks good at the store and/or is on sale, then I know I can come home and quickly cook up some mean sausage patties....
