These easy Gluten-Free Buttermilk Waffles are new family favorite in my house! They’re free from dairy and eggs, too, making them safe for everyone!
The special-ist meal.
Breakfast is a special meal in my household. So special that we often eat it twice (or three times) a day. Muffins for breakfast, a smoothie with lunch, pancakes for dinner… When it’s healthy and delicious, where’s the harm in it, right?
These Easy Gluten-Free Buttermilk Waffles are one of those breakfasts that make an appearance on our table no matter what mealtime it happens to be. My family is always happy to see them coming – and I’m always happy to make them!
Food blogger perks.
One of the greatest things about being a food blogger is all the delicious food you get to sample from other bloggers. A few months ago, Rachel from Gluten-Free Mama sent me her coconut flour and almond flour mixes to try out. Their textures were so light and the flavor they gave was so delicious, I knew they must be used in something special.
After copious amounts of chocolate chip cookies were made with the coconut flour mix, I devoted the mix almond flour mix to more savory treats, like my Rustic Gluten-Free Bread Sticks (serious yum, folks!), and these delicious waffles.
Gluten-Free Buttermilk Waffles.
The almond flour mix lends a wonderful flavor and soft crumb to these waffles and their flavor is slightly sweet and oh-so-delicious!
Even my un-waffle-loving hubby said they were the best waffles he’s ever had – after they were all gone and I hadn’t taken pictures, of course. Oh well, I just had to make them again! 😉

EASY BUTTERMILK WAFFLES
Free of gluten, eggs, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 3 c. Mama’s Almond Blend
- 1/2 c. buckwheat flour
- 1/2 t. Himalayan salt
- 1/4 t. nutmeg
- 2 t. cream of tartar (see notes)
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1/4 c. coconut oil or butter (melted)
- 1/2 c. applesauce
- 2-3 T. honey
- 2 c. coconut milk
- 2 T. apple cider vinegar
Grease and preheat your waffle iron on medium-high.
In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
In liquid measuring cup, combine milk and apple cider vinegar until curdled (about 5 minutes).
In a saucepan, slowly heat liquids (so the coconut oil doesn’t solidify).
Add wet ingredients into the dry ones, stirring quickly to combine.
Pour 1/3 cupfuls of batter onto each section of your hot, greased skillet and cook for about 2-4 minutes, depending on your waffle iron.
If you don’t have cream of tartar, you can replace it AND the baking soda with 1 tablespoon of baking powder.

I could absolutely eat breakfast foods for every meal of the day! Especially when it involves waffles… these sound amazing! I’ve finally gotten back into making waffles recently and my family couldn’t be happier 🙂 We aren’t gluten-free but I have friends and family who are, so this will be a great recipe to have when they come over. Waffles for everyone!
I’m the same way, Kathryn! Breakfast is the best meal of the day! 🙂
thanks for sharing this recipe! Looking at the ingredient list makes me curious about the taste! I think I should bake some more 🙂
Haha. Baking more is always a good idea, in my opinion. 😉 Thanks for stopping by, Simon.

Yes! Breakfast for dinner anytime of day! In fact, I’m debating making breakfast for dinner tonight, and these waffles look perfect.
Thanks so much, Kathrina! 🙂
Oh yum. I love how the shapes of waffles are nice and fluffy and thick these days. The skinny waffles with no consistency JUST WON’T DO!
Agreed. I prefer waffles that are thick enough to hold up under a lot of delicious toppings. 😉
These look delicious! I love waffles though… we tend to eat them all hours of the day as well! Nothing better than breakfast for dinner! Thanks for linking up with us at Welcome Home Wednesdays last week… we can’t wait to see you tomorrow morning!
Glad to share, Betsy! Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂
These look divine. The last time I tried to make gluten free waffles they didn’t brown and they looked so unattractive. Not sure why. Your’s browned up really well. visiting from Live It Up Link Party.
Thanks for stopping by, Gina! I hope the next time you try waffles they come out better for you. I can’t tell you how many unattractive meals my family has eaten while I test out new recipes! They’re so very gracious. 😉
I could eat breakfast three meals a day sometimes too! What beautiful waffles and they sound so good too! Pinned and tweeted. Thank you so much for bringing this wholesome recipe to the Hearth and Soul Hop, Raia.
Thank you so much, April! I’m always glad to share. 🙂
Is there a flour you could substitute for the almond flour – we have a nut allergy in our house?
Hmm… I haven’t done it, but cassava flour would be my first try for a sub.
