Gluten Free Waffles Recipe (cinnamon + sugar)

  • Author: ashley
  • Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15-20
  • Total Time: 20-30 minutes
  • Yield: 10 American size waffles (not belgian) 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Delicious healthy waffles that are gluten-free, dairy-free, and sweetened with smokey coconut sugar and aromatic cinnamon.



Wet ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla (I used alcohol-free)
  • 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt ( or a pinch) 

Dry ingredients 

  • 1 and 3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend ( I used King Arther’s) 
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder


1/4 cup coconut sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon to sprinkle on top of each waffle right before closing the waffle lid.


Preheat your waffle maker. Have two mixing bowls ready. 

Prepare the wet ingredients

In one of the mixing bowls, add the eggs. Whisk to break the yolks. Next, add the coconut sugar, vanilla extract, almond milk, and kosher salt. Mix until dark homogenized liquid forms, set aside.

Prepare the dry ingredients

In the other mixing bowl, add the gluten-free flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. Whisk the dry ingredients until well-combined. 

Putting it all together

Add the dry ingredients in with the wet a little at a time. Mix and fold until a thick batter forms. Set aside for 10 minutes. 

When ready, dollop the batter into the waffle maker and sprinkle the coconut + cinnamon mixture on top of the batter right before closing the lid. Cook according to your waffle maker’s time frame. 

Enjoy while hot or freeze for later. 


Why add salt to the wet ingredients? Because we are not using a recipe that requires yeast, adding salt to the wet ingredients is ok and will help dissolve the salt better resulting in evenly distributed seasonings.
