The Most Amazing Gluten-free Waffles Ever

My daughter Kristy created the most amazing waffle recipe ever.  It has been been served at a breakfast brunches and parties to gluten eaters with rave compliments.  I have made this over and over again and it is a staple at our house every weekend.

With so many friends and acquaintances who eat Gluten-free and new gluten-sensitive converts, I needed to get to it to a place for easy future reference. We like them so well, we double the recipe.

Kristina Howe's Gluten-free Waffles

  • 1/4 cup (1/2) stick Butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 cup Vanilla Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour mix (We all use Pamela's which contains rising agents)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • Dash of Salt

  • Cream the butter, sour cream, yogurt, eggs, vanilla and sugar together.  Add the flour and start making waffles! 

    To make them low fat, add no fat sour cream and I have been known to use half butter/half Coconut Oil. To go sugar free add Agave or a sugar substitute.

    Pamela's Pancake and Waffle Mix. I also use the Banana Bread recipe from the package and buy it in bulk from 

    Thank you  Kristy for creating the most amazing Gluten-free waffles ever. 

    These are amazing just remember they are very rich and you will struggle to eat an entire waffle.

    Gluten-free Pasta Shapes for Kids--Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta Little Dreams (5 Star rating in our house)

    With a feeding challenge toddler in the house, we are now into new territory. Gluten-free Shapes for our pasta in casseroles. Actually I was surprised at how well the Tinkayada Little Dreams Pasta turned out, even with me leaving it for extra time.

    The shapes of trains, cars, trucks, bears etc. stayed better than any regular pasta I have seen and gluten-free pasta can be a challenge. But Tinkyada is my preference with gluten-free pasta buying. I would highly recommend it for wee ones who are eating gluten-free.

    Gluten-free Lunch Ideas: Tuna Melts

    A lunch favorite and inexpensive fast meal at our house are Gluten-free Tuna Melts.

    Easy recipe:

    Can of Tuna
    Chopped fresh onion
    2 Tablespoons of Dill Relish or Chopped up Dill Pickles
    4 or 5 Tablespoons of Gluten-free Salad Dressing
    Your favorite shredded Cheese

    Mix ingredients together. Spread on top of Slices of Udi's Sandwich Bread or your favorite Gluten-free bread. I love using older dried out bread instead of throwing it out.

    Put in your Broiler and watch carefully. A toaster oven works well also. Remove once the cheese melts.

    These small tuna melts are incredibly filling.
