Gluten-Free Friday 4: Waffles


Robert’s love for breakfast foods is deep and unyielding. If you ever ask him what he wants for dinner, the answer 9 times out of 10 will be, “Breakfast for dinner!” Bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, fruit, cereal….it’s all good. And up until recently, pancakes, toast, and waffles were big players in his dream meal as well. While Robert is content to do without the bread products for breakfast, we all know he would be much happier if he had a waffle in addition.

So, I thought I would give Bisquick Gluten-Free Pancake and Waffle mix a try.


Now, the package instructions probably make a fine waffle, but I have a terrible habit of modifying recipes even before I have tried them for the first time. So, where the instructions called for milk, I used chocolate almond milk and where it called for an egg, I used a vegan egg replacer. What can I say? I wanted to have some waffles, too!

As with most gluten-free mixes, it takes a little longer to cook in the waffle iron so, be prepared for that. And it’s a little thicker and denser when it cooks up.  But, they were satisfying and didn’t have that weird “this is clearly a gluten free mix” taste or texture.

At upwards of $5 for a box (which is significantly smaller than standard boxes of Bisquick mix), it’s a little pricey. But, it makes a lovely treat for a weekend breakfast. To satisfy the whole family, I definitely have to make the whole box because everyone was looking for seconds!

I give this mix a resounding thumbs up. No one batted an eye at it and Robert asked a few times if he was actually supposed to be having this because it tasted like “normal”.
