Whole Grain Gluten Free Blender Waffles/Pancakes-Can be used for sandwiches!

I love these whole grain gluten free waffles for a quick and easy breakfast or dinner.  They are perfect for anyone just starting to go gluten free, or who wants to get a variety of grains in their diet.  You don’t need any special flours, just whole brown rice, and whole millet-if you don’t have millet you can use gluten free oats.   All the ingredients just go into the blender and you are done!!  Easy and tasty.

To make these really yummy-sprinkle a little bit of sugar(I used coconut) on the waffle iron and let it melt for just a second-then pour the batter on top….it’s really good. Promise.

Have you ever used waffles for bread?

This is an awesome trick.  It tastes WAY better than gluten free bread and it is a heck of a lot cheaper.  Make a double batch and freeze them.  If you aren’t sure how to freeze them check out this post.  You can do sweet waffles for peanut butter and honey sandwiches, or leave out the honey in the batter and do savory waffles.  Anything you would put on a regular sandwich can go into an open or closed faced waffle sandwich.

Some yummy combos:

  • Peanut butter, bananas,and a drizzle of honey
  • Almond butter, sliced strawberries, and a sprinkle of shredded coconut
  • Sliced apple, cheese, and ham
  • Hummus, avocados, shredded carrots, sprouts, and spinach
What is your favorite sandwich?

    Just discovered your blog/website and am already taking note of all of the recipes I want to try! Can you tell me: what brand/type of waffle iron do you use? I see in the photos that it doesn’t make the waffles with the deep rdiges (which I hate!).

      Hi Shannon! I have no idea. When I get home I will check for you. We just got it when we first got married. It is a cheap no brand one but it works awesome.

  2. Do you think these would work as pancakes? I don’t have a waffle iron.

    I found this recipe through Pinterest this week, and can’t wait to try it! The only question I have is about the vanilla and honey: vanilla is listed twice in the ingredients, but not honey; and honey is listed in the instructions. Is one of the ‘2 tsp of vanilla’ supposed to be honey?

    Hi – sounds good, but my daughter can’t have the egg whites, can I leave them out entirely or should the whites be replaced? If so, what do you suggest as a replacement?

      Oh Sophie-I am not sure if it would work without, because they bind the batter together. Try adding chia gel instead 1 T chia seeds mixed with 3 T water per egg (let it sit for a few minutes to gel). I don’t know if it would work but it is worth a try.

    Are the grains already cooked when you put them in a blender? This recipe sounds great!

    • admin says:

      Hi Patricia! No the grains are dry and hard. That is what I love about this recipe, because if you don’t have any flour on hand you can use the hard grains that you do! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

  6. Sheryl says:

    Do you think I could soak the grains in water overnight and then blend the next morning? I’m concerned about reducing phytates in the grains, so I’d like to discard the soaking water and blend with fresh. Would you think this might work with your recipe? Thanks!

    • Shell says:

      One of the instructions suggests leaving the blended grains to soak overnight in the milk, then cooking it the next morning/day. This might help with the phytates, or because you can eat with high antioxidant fruits, you may not need to worry as much about this, especially if you are getting a well-balanced diet.

    Using waffles for bread was one of the first things we did when my daughter went GF. Genius, right? She was much happier 🙂 I will try these waffles soon

    • Desi says:

      Hi Sharlyn! I know we have used waffles for bread too. Waaaay less expensive and a lot more healthy than most GF breads.

    These waffles were fabulous! I used Ripple milk (made from yellow peas) and used 3 tablespoons of coconut oil.
