I absolutely savor my weekends.

The girls and I soak in every last bit of Daddy that works out of town every day, and we love to enjoy breakfast with him on the weekend!

And since I truly love to savor our weekend time, Sundays have become waffle morning because I can use the leftover waffle slices for packing school lunches for the next day.

There were so many Sunday evenings that rolled around where I was out of my weekday lunch packing groove, and these leftover waffles were a no brainer to pack. And while nut butters and jam make the perfect waffle sandwich for the lunchbox, the girls also enjoy having cream cheese and jam, or coconut butter and jam too!

These waffles are gluten free and so simple to make. They have the perfect crispy sweet outside texture and taste and a soft, slightly chewy inside. This I recipe makes enough to feed my family of 5 for one breakfast so typically I end up doubling it if I want leftovers for the freezer or lunches the next day. You can pop any leftovers in a freezer bag and use the toaster on a busy morning to thaw them out and crisp them up!

Our favorite waffle toppings!

  • Butter & real maple syrup
  • Fruit mashes (simply warm up any chopped fruit (berries, apples, peaches, cherries etc) with a splash of maple syrup and simmer a few minutes, mashing up the fruit along the way. You can sprinkle in some arrowroot or other flour to thicken it to a sauce if you wish too! You can puree the fruit syrup if you wish for it to be smoother too.)
  • Coconut butter and raw honey or fruit slices
  • Butter and chopped pecans simmered in maple syrup

A quick note on waffle irons!

While many waffle irons still have toxic coatings, more and more companies are realizing people safer non stick ware! Here are some safe waffle irons if you happen to be in the market – we have the Oster one which is super affordable and it works so great.

    Renee is the Oster waffle iron the correct link? It looks like it is not ceramic. Thanks!

    […] Just like pancakes, waffles may also be prepped in advance and reheated later in the week. Waffles may be served traditionally with maple syrup, or made into a sandwich like the pancakes (try scrambled eggs in the center!). Need a gluten-free recipe? Try this recipe from Raising Generation Nourished. […]

    Hello! I tried to make these and the dough came out hard and un pourable. I followed the directions exactly but it did not have a pouring consistency. Is that how it’s supposed to be? I did two tablespoons of maple syrup. I assumed TB was tablespoons. Is this correct? Thanks!

      Hi Christine! That is really strange – I have never had that happen before and we make these all time! Yes TB stands for tablespoon. I am sorry it didn’t turn out for you!
