Gluten-free Zucchini Bread Waffles!
Is there anything more enjoyable than waking up to the most perfect, easy and indulgent waffles for a weekend brunch? Yea… I didn’t think so.
These gluten free zucchini bread waffles are EVERYTHING.
Also, you can take comfort in the fact that your gluten-free zucchini bread waffles have vegetables in them. Just kidding – there is never a need to justify waffle consumption.
These gluten-free waffles are based off a traditional zucchini bread recipe. They are full of grated zucchini, cassava flour, flavorful spices and lots of deliciousness.
I love the flavor and texture this shredded zucchini gives these gluten-free waffles. Zucchini can provide really great moisture to baked goods. Just be sure to ring out any excess water so your batter doesn’t become too watery.
Gives the zucchini bread waffles more moisture. I prefer a neutral tasting oil in these waffles. However, coconut oil is also an excellent option.
Is the base for these gluten-free zucchini bread waffles. I really love the simplicity of only needing to use one flour and the texture of cassava flour is perfect because it always produces a super crispy waffle on the outside that is just asking to be drenched in butter and maple syrup.
Act as the binder and also give these gluten free waffles some lightness and structure.
Dairy Free milk
Is used in these zucchini bread waffles as some added moisture for the waffles. I recommend using coconut milk, oat milk or almond milk but any dairy free milk you have on hand would work as well!
First, start by grating the zucchini. When you are done, firmly squeeze the grated zucchini in a paper towel to remove extra moisture. This will help produce a fluffier and crispier waffle.
Next, add all the wet ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine everything. Add the zucchini, cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt, and mix.
Stir in the baking soda and cassava flour until just combined.
Lastly, follow your instructions for your waffle maker to make some delicious gluten-free zucchini waffles.
Most local health food stores carry cassava flour but if you can’t find it there I would look on Thrive Market or Amazon. I personally love THIS one but all the brands I have used have been great.
Personally I love to make my waffles with a Belgian waffle maker. THIS is the one that I absolutely love but any waffle maker will work.
Yes! These can easily be frozen and reheated in the oven or a toaster. But let’s be real- who ever has left over waffles?
You want to ensure that your waffle maker is hot. Be sure to preheat it and if necessary, let the waffle iron heat up again between batches.
