Need a waffle recipe that’s free from dairy, gluten, eggs, and nuts? Look no further. The perfect allergy-friendly waffle recipe exists and it’s the one I’m sharing with you today!
Now that I’ve perfected an allergy-friendly recipe for waffles, everyone has requested them on back-to-back weeks with emphatic “yums” and “more, please!”. Music to my ears.
It’s time to dust off that waffle maker in the back of your cupboard and start using it again! You won’t regret it.
These waffles are light and fluffy, with just the right amount of cinnamon and sugar. No chewy rubber here, folks! They’re also gluten-free and free from all top 8 allergens. Say what? Yes, and you probably have all the ingredients already in your pantry.
My daughter has always loved waffles, but since going gluten-free, we’ve not been able to find a store-bought kind that was somewhat healthy and didn’t taste like chewy rubber. Bleh!
After failed attempts to find a storebought mix that was delicious and free from allergens, I went on a mission to get a waffle maker and come up with an amazing recipe of my own!

When it comes to gluten-free waffles the type of flour you use is important. Out of all the gluten-free flour options out there, it can be hard to know which one is best to use for different recipes.
My favorite one for this recipe is Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour. A lot of people have commented that they’ve successfully made this recipe using King Arthur’s Gluten-Free flour too.
With that being said, here is everything you’ll need to make these allergy-friendly Cinnamon Waffles happen:
- gluten-free all-purpose flour
- ground flax
- ground cinnamon
- baking powder
- baking soda
- brown sugar

No Egg Waffle Recipe
If you can make pancakes without eggs, then you can do the same with waffles. Instead of eggs, we use ground flaxseed to bind the ingredients into a thick batter that will yield tall and fluffy waffles.
- Preheat and grease a waffle maker.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, flax, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and brown sugar.
- Add the applesauce and vanilla. Mix until just combined.
- Slowly pour the water into the bowl, and mix to form a batter. If the batter is too thick, add a little more water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
- Spoon some of the batter into the center of the hot waffle maker. Spread until it’s within ¼ inch of the edge of the grids.
- Close the lid, and cook until golden brown.
Now that you have a fresh stack of waffles, let’s talk about toppings!
Toppings for Eggless Waffles
While maple syrup and butter will always suffice for morning waffles, it’s sometimes fun to go big or go home. Below I’ve shared a few ideas from my 50+ pancake, and waffle toppings ideas post just to get you started.
- Peaches & Cream – Sliced peaches & whipped cream
- Apple Pie – Baked apples and cinnamon
- Cinnamon Roll – Vanilla glaze and cinnamon
- PB&J – Peanut butter and jelly or strawberry syrup
- White Raspberry – Raspberries and white chocolate chips
Saturday mornings are always our “family breakfast day.” I usually whip up a table full of waffles or pancakes with fruit and bacon. It’s a tradition and our one morning during the week when we can all take our time and dine together, a perfect kickoff to the weekend.
The best part? Make extra, and freeze them for a quick and delicious breakfast during the week.
You can also pack leftovers for lunches! My daughter never turns down breakfast for lunch- yum! All you have to do is pack some syrup in a mini sauce container and send it along with the waffles and fruit.Print
