This is another one of those recipes, not unlike my favorite Gluten-Free Pizza Crust, that I’ve been making for years but am just now getting around to sharing! My family adores having these waffles for dinner. And, my kids ask for these rather frequently—which I always count as a win! They can be served a myriad of ways and have the most wonderful texture and flavor. I hope you and yours enjoy them just as well!

Tapioca Flour:

I adore this versatile starch. It is the star of the show in my popular Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipe. It imparts a chewiness that is reminiscent of gluten-filled flours and has a really lovely flavor as well.


This provides some delightful cheesy flavor, and also some extra binding power and texture.

Olive Oil:

This helps get those delightful, flavorful crispy bits as well as provides some non-stick power.


This is an optional ingredient. I like adding it to the batter for some added protein for my kiddos, and it also provides some structure and binding power. But we’ve found that omitting it and/or adding flaxseed in its place to still provide tasty waffles, just with a slightly different texture.


You gotta have salt to bring the flavors to the forefront!

Garlic Powder and Italian Seasoning:

This seasoning combo really creates such a stunningly delicious savory waffle that is hard to beat! You can certainly play around with your own spice combos but this is by far our favorite.

    1. Hi Stephanie! Thank you so much. 🙂 I haven’t tried it, but I do think a good melty vegan cheese such as Chao or Violife would work well!

      1. Hi! I haven’t tested this recipe with cassava flour so I cannot say for certain. I think there is a high chance it will work, but the cassava is likely to come out with a slightly more bread-like texture, whereas the tapioca gives a rather chewy texture. I hope this helps!
