Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles

Sometimes it can be difficult to think of a dessert that is suitable for a mixture of guests that include those who are gluten free and those who can eat anything. These waffles are suitable for either and can be served simply with a syrup topping for the family or dressed up with toppings for a festive occasion.

I have found that waffles can make a delicious gluten free dessert and the toppings can be varied in many different ways. In the photo above, for example, the waffle is served with supermarket blueberry ice-cream and topped with blueberries mixed with homemade low-fat ice-cream.

  • The Waffle-maker: I have a waffle-maker suitable for my microwave oven and it's great. It makes little square waffles that can be cooked so quickly and there's no chance of their burning. However, the recipe below works for both a microwave waffle maker, a traditional waffle-iron or an electric stainless steel waffle-maker. The latter may be bigger and the batter recipe given here will make fewer waffles, so you may need to double the quantity of ingredients.

Gluten Free Mango Waffles

The recipe given here is for gluten free mango waffles. In the photos below, the waffles are served with mango gelato, covered with mango puree and topped with grated chocolate.

  • The mango puree: This was made with the pulp of two mangoes flavoured with two tablespoons of lemon juice.
  • The chocolate: The chocolate I used was a block of 70% cocoa chocolate that was grated and then sprinkled over the sauce.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: Around six to eight waffles


  • 250 g Gluten Free Self-raising Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 125 g Unsalted Butter, melted, but not too hot
  • ¾ cup Milk, Low fat
  • 1 dessertspoon Olive oil
  1. Separate egg yolks and whites.
  2. Whisk egg yolks into the milk.
  3. Beat the mixture into the sifted flour.
  4. Add melted butter and beat until smooth.
  5. Fold in the stiffly beaten egg-whites.
  6. Brush the waffle-iron with olive oil and heat well, or if using the microwave oven brush the waffle-maker with the oil.
  7. Pour the batter onto the iron or waffle-maker until the base is covered and close the receptacle.
  8. If using the waffle-iron, cook for about 4 minutes, turning after about two minutes. If using the waffle-maker, about 1.45 minutes usually works in my microwave oven, but as ovens vary you may find you need slightly more or less time.
  9. Repeat Instructions numbers 6 - 8 until all the batter has been used.

Some Extra Hints

They Freeze: These Gluten Free Waffles can be made some time before they are needed as they freeze very well. Simply thaw and toast them prior to serving.

Hot or cold, they're Crunchy: If you want the waffles to remain hot, add the toppings and serve quickly, but if you are slow it doesn't matter as they taste great anyway and the toasted waffles remain satisfyingly crunchy.

Have Extras on Standby: It's a good idea to have some extra waffles and toppings on hand as they were so popular that my guests came back for a second serving.

      Wow I will print this recipe and keep it into my kitchen file with my other Gluten free recipe. I will have to look out for 250 g Gluten Free Self-raising Flour in a health store, but your desert photo looks scrumptious. Shared and voted.

      This recipe for gluten-free waffles is fantastic! Mangoes are a great fruit and I've never thought about including them in waffles. This makes an elegant dessert. Voted up and across (Not Funny) and pinning, sharing and more.

      Mango waffles! Sounds interesting anyway. More mangoes in my diet would probably not be a bad thing.

      This is an excellent article about how to make a delicious dessert. I will try it here soon, to make it. Although, I am not sure if it being gluten free will taste good. But, I will be sure to let you know. The plates you used to serve are just as appealing as the dessert itself. Shared, up ++++

      Your awesome! :-)

      BlossomSB: I made the mistake of reading this hub in the evening and now I am really running the risk of killing my New Year resolution regarding not eating after 6pm-- this recipe looks very yummy and I am putting it on my FB page at Gotta Be Gluten Free. I'm also pinning, sharing and tweeting to the hordes of GF-eaters out there who continue to look for tasty recipes! Thanks for the post! ~Cynthiaxx

      I have never heard of a microwave waffle maker until now. This waffle recipe looks great and your photos are absolutely gorgeous.

      Besides the fact that this dessert looks so yummy, Blossom, I have to comment on your beautiful plates. I have one tea cup that remains from a set of my grandmother's that looks a bit like that and I have always wanted to get plates like that just because they make any food look good. Those plates make me want to have tea right now!

      Gorgeous images and a really nice looking recipe. I love waffles and this looks amazing. I hope to make these sometime soon. I have one of those gorgeous old fashioned waffle irons which sit on the top of the stove. I can't wait.

      The opening photo is very attractive, Blossom! The plate, the waffle and the topping all look lovely. I've never made waffles at home before, but I'm very tempted to after reading this hub. The toppings sound delicious.
