Fluffy Gluten Free Buttermilk Waffles

Happy Waffle Wednesday!

The flavor of these waffles… mmm… rich, buttery and true thanks to the buttermilk and touch of honey! The texture is light and moist with the perfect chew- not gummy or soggy or crumbly or flaky! You can also make these dairy free by replacing the buttermilk with the substitute of your choice, i.e. almond milk. Also substitute 1/2 cup millet flour or almond flour for part of the brown rice flour to give a hearty boost to your waffles! I use Bob’s Red Mill for my flour, starches and baking powder! Of course eggs from Big Table Farm and raw milk from Champoeg Creamery!

Gluten Free Buttermilk Waffles

1  1/2 cup  brown rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca starch/flour

1/2 cup cornstarch

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1 tsp sea salt or REAL salt

1 TBsp. honey (cane sugar or coconut nectar crystals work too)

1 tsp. vanilla

4 large local farm eggs, separated

1/2 cup grape seed oil or cooking oil of your choice

1 1/2 cup buttermilk (milk with a squeeze of lemon works too or milk substitute)

* be sure all ingredients in packages are gluten free


Whisk all dry ingredients together in a bowl with a spout for easy pouring of the waffle batter. (If using cane sugar or dry sweetener, add it in here as well.) Mix honey, vanilla, egg yolks, oil and buttermilk together until combine. Add the wet mix to the dry mix and whisk until smooth. In a clean bowl, whip the egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold egg whites into your batter. Cook in a buttered or oiled waffle iron per your waffle iron directions. Top with whatever your heart desires and enjoy!!

Yield will vary depending on shape and size of your waffle iron.

Quick tip- I pour my oil into a large glass measuring bowl, followed by my milk, The oil comes up to 1/2 cup and the milk should being the total liquid up to 2 cups. Then i add my egg yolks, honey, and vanilla. This way everything mixes well, the honey doesn’t get stuck to the sides and I only used one bowl to measure and mix.
