Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles

The perfect fluffy gluten free waffles made with yogurt and just a touch of sugar, with a lightly crisp outside.

Is it pancakes all the way for you, or are waffles more your style? In my family, when I make pancakes I’m kind of a hero. But when I make waffles, my kids practically throw me a ticker tape parade. I’m thinking it’s the built-in syrup cups in waffles?


  • 2 cups (280 g) gum-free gluten free flour blend (185 g superfine white rice flour + 62 g potato starch + 33 g tapioca starch/flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 2 tablespoons (24 g) sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs (120 g, out of shell) at room temperature, separated
  • 3 tablespoons (42 g) virgin coconut oil, melted and cooled (or a neutral liquid oil, like vegetable or canola)
  • 1 cup (227 grams) plain whole milk yogurt
  • 6 fluid ounces milk, at room temperature


  1. Preheat and prepare your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  2. In a large bowl, place the flour blend, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and whisk to combine well. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with a hand mixer (or in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment) until stiff (but not dry) peaks form. Place the egg yolks and oil in a separate large bowl and blend with a hand mixer (or in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment) until creamy. Add the yogurt and milk, and blend until well combined. Add the dry ingredients, and blend again. The mixture will be smooth and thickly pourable. Fold the beaten egg whites gently into the large bowl of batter until only a few white streaks remain.
