Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Waffles

Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Waffles.  My kids love waffles.  Before we decided to eat clean, I used to buy the pre-made boxed waffles.

For some reason I thought waffles were hard to make yourself.  That could not be further from the truth!  Waffles are super easy and these Gluten Free Apple Waffles are my daughter’s favorite.

I have had an Apple Cinnamon Waffle recipe on my blog for some time now, but I didn’t have one that was gluten free.  Now I do.

Another waffle recipe my kids love is my Blueberry Oatmeal Waffles.  So good and perfect for spring!  When ever I make waffles, I make a huge batch and then freeze them.

That way, they are no different than buying the frozen waffles at the store.  In the morning, you can pop one in the toaster oven the heat it up.  My waffle iron makes the waffles into sticks, which my girls love.

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 10 min Serves 6 large waffles     adjust servings

Make a big batch for quick and easy breakfast options!



  1. Turn on your waffle iron .
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  3. Mix wet in another.
  4. Add wet to dry and mix until everything is combined. The batter will be thicker and stickier than traditional waffles.
  5. Enjoy!
  6. Make sure the waffle iron is greased before every waffle is made.
  7. I used a 1/2 cup scoop measurement to scoop the batter onto the waffle iron. You may need to use a spatula to help spread out the batter a little.
  8. Cook the waffles according to your waffle iron's instructions.
  9. Serve immediately or you can refrigerate or freeze them for later.

    1. Thank you! I think they could be converted into pancakes easily. The batter is very thick though, so you will need to use a spatula to help spread them out.
  1. you just put oats in the blender to make a flour correct? and would this recipe work on a belgian waffle maker type? or does it need to be just a regular one? thanks!
    1. Yes I just put oats in the blender to make oat flour. I have never used a belgian waffle maker, but I assume it would still work.
  2. I'm very new to being allergic to gluten :(. I bought some gluten free coconut flour. Would that be ok to use instead of oat flour? Anything helps as I'm having a hard time adjusting to all of this. Thanks so much!
    1. Coconut flour can be tricky. It absorbs a lot of moisture. If you use it, you will need to add a lot of eggs. I think the general rule is 1 egg every 1/4 cup coconut flour.
      1. As far as coconut flour goes, the general rule of thumb is, 1/4 C can be substituted for 1 C of gluten free flour. It is very dense and absorbs a lot of moisture, so you do not need as much.
  3. Do you think it would work to sub an all purpose GF flour for the oat flour? My mom has really bad Celiac and she can't have GF oats either. Thank you.
  4. Just made these for dinner tonight. They are my first attempt at anything gluten free and they turned out great!
  5. I just made these for breakfast and they were a HUGE hit. This was the first time I had ever made waffles and I am very pleased. I did make the following changes due to what I had around my house. -I used a glutern free all purpose flour instead of oat flour -I added 1 teaspoon of xantan gum -I used 2 eggs instead of the flax eggs Even with the above changes they came out great. I would highly recommend :-) Thank Melissa for the awesome and very versitile recipe
  6. I made these this morning for breakfast and doubled it to freeze for later. They turned out great and the whole family loved them! My husband's doctor recently recommended he be gluten free/dairy free. This is all so new to me and your website has been so incredibly helpful in our new food lifestyle. Thanks for all that you do!
