Finally - a gluten free and vegan waffle recipe that has a crispy exterior and soft, fluffy interior! The two secrets: a homemade gluten free flour blend and aquafaba.



  • Aquafaba drained from one 15 oz can of chickpeas
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup all purpose gluten free flour blend
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum (only use if your GF flour doesn't contain any)
  • 1 1/2 cups dairy free milk
  • 3 tbsp melted dairy free butter
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract


  1. Heat waffle maker to medium-high.
  2. Drain the liquid from a can of chickpeas into the bowl of your stand mixer (or a regular mixing bowl if you're using a hand mixer). Save the chickpeas for making hummus, roasted chickpeas, or anything else you use chickpeas for!
  3. Add cream of tartar, then turn on mixer at medium-high and whip for 8-10 minutes, until aquafaba forms stiff peaks.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together gluten free flour, oat flour, almond flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda and xanthan gum.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, butter and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into dry and whisk until well incorporated. Gently fold in 3/4 cup whipped aquafaba with a spatula. The batter should be light and fluffy.
  6. Be sure not to overfill your waffle maker - add just enough to cover and cook for 5-7 minutes. If not eating right away, let cool on cooling rack to prevent them from getting soggy.
