Banana Cinnamon Waffles - Gluten Free & Vegan Crispy waffles with wholegrains and no allergens!

These are a snap to whip together, and lets be honest here…who can’t use another waffle recipe under their belt?!  I make them so often for the kids that I need to keep changing things up to keep it interesting for ME!  Don’t forget that leftover waffles make great toaster waffles for busy mornings, and can also be used as a fun replacement for bread in lunchboxes (PB&J’s anyone?).

I moved away from my Belgian waffle maker (too thick!) and now own this waffle maker and love it!

Makes about 6 large waffles

Banana & Cinnamon Waffles - Gluten Free & Vegan
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 cup pureed bananas (I puree all the liquid ingredients together with my immersion blender)
  • ¼ cup chia meal or flax meal (whir whole seeds in a coffee grinder to make your own)
  • ½ cup water (you could omit the chia meal and water and use 2 large eggs)
  • ½ cup favorite milk
  • 2 tablespoon melted coconut oil or other oil of choice
  • ½ cup teff flour
  • ½ cup millet, sorghum, brown rice, or gluten free oat flour
  • ½ cup tapioca starch (or any starch)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a liquid measuring cup (enables for quick and easy pouring of the batter), puree all the liquid ingredients through the oil using an immersion blender, set aside. Alternately, you could whir the ingredients in a blender or mix vigorously by hand.
  3. Gather your dry ingredients and sprinkle in over the top, in order.
  4. Using a whisk lightly mix the dry ingredients before stirring the whole mixture together. Batter should be pourable, so add more liquid of choice if necessary.
  5. Pour batter into a preheated waffle iron and cook until crispy and golden!

When her third child was born with severe food allergies, Tessa took to the kitchen to figure out how to feed her family well. Always up for a culinary challenge, their journey has taken many twists and turns! Lots of Paleo, and lots of top 8 free. Good food for families, that's what she's about!

    HUGE waffle fan here and these look fabulous! I usually do include mashed bananas in my waffle batter, but your flours/meals are totally new to me. I love the mix and can’t wait to try them out! Great waffles!

  4. Yum! Love how the bananas are incorporated into the mix! I’ve nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award –

    I really wanted these to work because they are so easy to throw together but sadly mine stuck so badly to the waffle machine. My kids loved the flavour though. I think i will try these as pancakes next time. The only difference i did in this recipe was make up the quantity of teff (which i didnt have) with a mix of buckwheat, brown rice and Sorghum. Could this have made them stick?

    These sound so good! I really like the banana in them too. It’s great how allergy friendly they are. I also like the idea of using them for sandwiches in lunch boxes too!

  12. Gina says:

    Omg, these turned out so well. What fun, I loved the color and the texture. I left them in the waffle maker extra time so they were nice and crispy and perfect. Thanks for the new recipe!

  13. I love how the bananas provide the sweetness in these gorgeous waffles. They look and sound delicious.

  14. Hannah says:

    This looks yummy! We are GF and I use a LOT of bananas in muffins and such! Thanks for sharing with us at Eco-Kids Tuesday!! Hope to see you again next week!

  15. There is just something about the crisp outside and soft inside of waffles that makes them a favorite–love the way they can be frozen for a quick breakfast too. I agree with you, the flavors need to change occasionally to keep it interesting and these sound wonderful. Thanks for sharing this on Hearth & Soul Hop. :)

  16. Deb says:

    I’ve made these twice now and they are wonderful. Everyone loved these! Thanks for another great recipe.

  17. Kirsten says:

    These work as awesome pancakes too! I decided to push the “easy” button for dinner and make breakfast. There were zero leftovers for the freezer and the kids were raving about these. Must be the cinnamon? Thanks, Tess!

    Not being a troll here, but oats aren’t necessarily Gluten-free (nor is oat flour ALWAYS gluten-free). I don’t react to oats, but have friends who cannot even have gluten-free oats. There is about 15% of the population of people not able to have gluten that also cannot have oats because of something inside it that makes their bodies respond as though they ate gluten. I wish I could remember the thing in it…

    But this recipe is great for our situation. I also like that we have the option to not use dairy–as two of my disabled kids and I are unable to have gluten or dairy. Hopefully, eventually we can have goat or sheep dairy. :)

    Thanks for your recipes–you are awesome!!

    • I forgot to specify gluten free oats Heidi, thanks for catching me on that!
      The protein in oats is almost identical to gluten, which is why many people still have issues with them: their immune system can not distinguish the oat protein as different than gluten and launches an immune response as if it WERE gluten.
      We have taken oats out of our diet in the last 4 months to test my kids sensitivity….fingers crossed as we LOVE oat flour AND oatmeal!! So no oat flour used in these as of late!
