This week I’m continuing with my favorite fall flavors by topping our go to Gluten Free Waffle Recipe with Homemade Apple Pie Filling Topping. This simple apple topping is delicious on pancakes, ice cream, and so many things but we absolutely love it on our Gluten Free Waffles! As with most of our gluten free cooking, we’ve searched for a long time and tried many recipes before finally combining many to create one that we love. These waffles are fluffy but crisp up nicely on the outside. The flavor is perfect and they are easy to make. They are safe for our little guy with Celiac Disease but the whole family loves them and when we have guests for breakfast, no one knows they are gluten free!
Easy Gluten Free Waffle Recipe with Apple Topping
- 1 cup All Purpose Gluten Free Flour – keep in mind that not all gluten free flours are created equal! You’ll want to be sure you’re using a gluten free all purpose flour you know and love. We love the Pamela’s brand Artisan All Purpose or Bob’s Red Mill.
- 2 tsp baking powder – I like to use a corn starch free baking powder
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 2 tbsp raw sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 large eggs at room temperature
- 3/4 tsp real vanilla extract
- coconut oil for oiling waffle iron
How To Make Gluten Free Waffles:
Mix together dry ingredients in one bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl mix together wet ingredients, combining well.
Stir together wet and dry ingredients together just before you are ready to begin cooking waffles as the batter will begin to thicken as it sits.
Grease your waffle iron with coconut oil, this is part of what gives the waffles a crisp, golden brown outside.
Pour about 1/2 cup of batter into a 6″-7″ waffle iron. Cook for 2 1/2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
While the waffles are cooking, begin preparing your homemade apple pie filling topping.
- 2 apples – cored and diced
- 3/4 cup raw sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp gluten free all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup water
How To Make Apple Topping For Waffles:
Combine the apples, water, sugar, and spices in a sauce pan on the stove and simmer until the apples begin to soften.
Once the apples start to soften, mix together the all purpose flour and the remaining 1/4 cup of water, stirring well to make sure the flour is dissolved. Stir in the flour mixture to the apples and continue cooking until the liquid thickens.
Simmer until ready to serve.
Top the hot waffles with the warm apple pie filling and serve! I think you will absolutely love this gluten free waffles recipe and never miss the gluten at all!
