Gluten-Free & Wheat-Free
Dairy-Free Banana Walnut Waffles

GF Recipe Summary

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Banana Walnut Waffles: Wonderfully light and fluffy waffles equal to any real ones — banana/nut flavors too!

These dairy-free banana nut waffles make for an enjoyable glutenfree breakfast treat! Mild flavored and light bodied, made without any dairy ingredients, using Soy Tofu for added protein. They are delicious, and have that wonderful flavor combination of bananas and walnuts! You will need a waffle maker to make these, but it is worth the investment and you will be happy you bought one if you do not already own one.

Gluten-Free Recipe Card and Pictures

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Banana Walnut Waffles
3 Eggs, Separated
¾ Cup Ripe Banana
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 LB Silken Tofu*
¼ Cup Vegetable Oil
¼ Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
¾ Cup Buckwheat Flour
¼ Cup Glutinous Rice Flour (aka Sweet Rice)
¼ Cup Tapioca Flour
¼ Cup Teff Flour
¼ Cup Flaxseed Meal
½ Cup Chopped Walnuts
¼ Cup Water

*I used Nasoya Organic – Silken Tofu (not Soft type, but rather Silken variety of Tofu)


Separate eggs, placing egg whites in mixing bowl and yolks in a separate bowl. Using whisk attachment, beat egg whites until stiff. Remove beaten egg whites from mixing bowl and set aside for later use.

In mixing bowl add banana, sugar, tofu and egg yolks; mix. Add remaining ingredients; mix. Add beaten egg whites and gently fold (by hand) together.

To cook the waffles, follow instructions that came with your waffle maker. Otherwise, some generic waffle-iron instructions are: the surface of your waffle maker griddle area should be covered ⅔ of the way with batter (too much batter will cause the batter to leak from waffle maker). Waffles should be allowed to cook until steam stops escaping from waffle maker. We have a Black & Decker Belgian Waffle Maker (model WMB500) and waffles took 10 minutes to cook.

[note: I borrowed the picture for this recipe from our gluten-free buttermilk / flax waffles, since they look the same essentially] The waffles should look similar to the above picture when finished (shown served with Maple Syrup).
