Gluten Free Banana Quinoa Waffles

I love waffles. It’s such a lovely way to start your day, warm sweet bread topped with fruit and yummy sweet maple syrup how can you go wrong. If your body hates you for consuming gluten this can definitely be the wrong breakfast choice for you – or does it have to be?

When I decided to cut out gluten I was not going to give up waffles and pancakes. These are not as fluffy and crispy as your traditional Belgian waffle however my whole family found them quite yummy and gobbled them up this morning.  We used our new Cusinart Griddler that we received for Christmas to cook these up.



  • 2 large ripe bananas (peeled)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cup unsweetened almond milk (vanilla or plain)
  • 2 cups quinoa flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder


  • Turn on waffle iron and heat up as per manufactures direction
  • Place all ingredients in order given in blender (we used a Vitamix)
  • Liquefy mixture
  • Cook waffles as per you waffle iron’s manufacture directions.  This batter is slow to cook our waffles iron indicated to cook for 4 minutes we left each batch in for 6 minutes. You may want to adjust the time required for cooking to best suite your waffle iron.
  • Enjoy warm, topped with fruit and syrup

Note: This recipe filled our waffle iron 3 times for a total of 12 small waffles.
