Basic Gluten Free Waffle Recipe aka Lunchbox Waffles (Top 9 Free)

Gluten Free, Vegan, Top 9 Free Homemade Waffle Sandwiches by The Allergy Chef

Have you made wafflewiches yet? If not, this is a great recipe for that. We used a Baby Cakes waffle stick maker to make gluten free, vegan, top 9 free waffle sandwiches that fit PERFECTLY into the Planet Box Rover Lunchbox. Hence, lunchbox waffles.

These waffles come together FAST. For even faster results, combine all of the dry ingredients into a baggie and store it like you would a box mix.

I suggest either making the waffles fresh each time you’d like a waffle sandwich, OR, make a big batch and freeze them. We’ve found that waffles in the fridge for the next day aren’t nearly as awesome.

I Can Have Wheat. How Do I Make These Waffles?

If you’re able to have wheat, skip the sorghum, millet, and arrowroot. Use 230g of an AP flour (not self rising) instead.

Can I Use Different Gluten Free Flours?

Yes! You’ll need 230g of your favorite blend of gluten free flours. Please note however, many gluten free flours have a specific taste. If you change which flours go into the recipe, we can’t guarantee that the flavor will remain the same. This is especially true if you plan to use something like buckwheat.

Do I Have To Use The Baby Cakes Waffle Maker?

To make awesome gluten free waffle sandwiches, yes, you will need to use a mini waffle maker. We happen to have the Baby Cakes brand. Dash makes a little one that’s cute as well, but if I went that route, I’d buy at least two of those waffle makers.

If we were to make these waffles in our Waring Pro, they would simply be much too big for a waffle sandwich.

More About The Gluten Free, Vegan Waffle Sandwiches

When making these into sandwiches, be sure to put a spread on both waffles. It can be a nut, legume, seed, or tuber butter/spread. We opted for a seed butter, banana slices, and top 8 free chocolate chips.

You can put whatever combination of fruit and spread on your waffle sandwich. You can even use something like cream cheese as the spread.

For your fruit filling, we suggest whole fresh fruit or sugar free jam/preserves. If you use whole fruit, such as raspberries, give them a squish so the cover as much of the waffle as possible.
