Gluten-Free Strawberry Buckwheat Waffles


  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cooking spray
  • ¼ cup strawberry jam


  1. Mix the buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
  2. Beat the buttermilk, eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl until smooth; add to the flour mixture and stir until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat a waffle iron to High and prepare cooking surfaces with cooking spray.
  4. Ladle about ¼ cup batter onto the prepared waffle iron; immediately add 1 tablespoon strawberry jam and swirl it with the batter. Close the waffle iron and cook until according to manufacturer direction, 8 to 10 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

These waffles freeze great. So feel free to make a large batch, freeze them, and just pop them in the toaster as needed! Xanthan gum is a great ingredient to have on hand for gluten-free baking. It is a powerful thickening agent and prevents ingredients from separating.

Anytime I can find a new GF recipe, it's a win for me! I had never cooked with buckwheat until now. Very delicious recipe! I especially love the strawberry jam swirled in the batter. Can't wait to make these again.
