{Gluten and Dairy Free} Waffles (or pancakes) of Delight

waffle after toppings
These waffles are the perfect marrying of sweet and tart. The maple syrup on top of the mangoes and raspberries balances it out just right. It was like a party in your mouth, and a nice change from the "normal" waffle.

You could make this into pancakes if you don't have a waffle maker. It starts with your favorite prepared waffle mix. Mine is here. It takes a little while to make it up, but what I love the most about it, is once you do, you can have inexpensive waffles in a heartbeat. I finally purchased this waffle maker a while back, and it has been worth it's weight in gold.(It's only $26!) I make hash browns, waffles, and brownies in it.

Take your favorite waffle mix.  Prepare as instructed. These add-ons are assuming you are making enough mix for four 12 inch waffles. Add to the mix:
1/4 cup coconut
2/3 cup raspberries

Cook in the waffle maker until just right. When using egg-replacer in waffles I've found that browning just a little more than usual makes them more crunchy. They can be a hint rubbery with egg replacer, and this makes up for it.
Meanwhile puree the ingredients for the sauce (below) and heat over med-low heat in a sauce pan.

2 and 1/2 cups mangoes
Add one cup water
(you could add additional sweetener, but we like it without)

Pour mango sauce over waffle, throw some raspberries (and coconut if desired) on top, and then drizzle with real maple syrup. Enjoy!
I am posting this here at Allergy-free Wednesdays on a series of blogs! Check it out!


  1. Sounds yummy! I haven't had the best of luck making GF/allergy free waffles or pancakes. I'm not quite sure exactly what the problem is, but it seems the centers are a little doughy :( We keep working on it though, and the kids don't ever seem to mind.
    I would like to invite you to share your recipe in our recipe hop. It is a weekly event and the linky will be open until midnight tonight. Hope to see you there ☺

    1. That sounds really interesting. If you could send me a link the blog hop, that would be great! I have found that spreading the dough so it is evenly distributed and not too thick helps. Also, letting it cook a little longer than I normally would with wheat waffles seems to help!

  2. Oh my...these look amazing. Sweet and tart - my favorite. I love your flour blend too! I just can't believe these are egg free! I'm so impressed! Great job. And I LOVE your blog. Excellent recipes. Thank you for sharing with us this week on AFW. I can't wait to try these waffles...I'm in the market for a new waffle maker, so thank you for the recommendation. :-)

    Have a beautiful week.
