These dairy free waffles are the bomb! Having allergic kiddos doesn’t mean they live without – at least not when we’re home. I always tell them, I can make anything, or at least I can try!

At restaurants, waffles and pancakes are usually on the no-no list since there is usually dairy milk in the batter and likely nuts in the different varieties of dishes offered. I just imagine that the griddles and waffle irons are contaminated with everything on the menu.

Classic Waffles

Also, we’re a “classic” waffle family, not a Belgian waffle family. Belgian waffles are just too thick and bready for us. We like the CRUNCH and the thinness. Of course, with that said, this recipe will work for either classic or Belgian waffles.

Scrumptious! I can almost smell them now… Can you?

There are so many things you can add to your batter to liven up your pancakes! Try chocolate chipscocoa powder, cardamom, blueberries, bananas, matcha green tea powder, flaxseed mealhemp seed, shredded coconut, etc.

Which Flour to Use?

If wheat agrees with you, I recommend King Arthur all-purpose flour as they are milled in dedicated wheat-only facilities. If you are allergic, do check as manufacturing practices may change.

Last time I checked in 2018, this is what King Arthur informed me:
Our six Signature Flours (All Purpose, Bread, Whole Wheat, White Whole Wheat, Self-Rising, and Sprouted Wheat, plus their Organic versions) don’t have peanuts or tree nuts added to them as ingredients, and are milled in dedicated wheat-only facilities.

KAF’s specialty flours (e.g., French-style, Italian-style, First clear, etc.), plus many of their mixes and ingredients, are prepared in the Vermont facility where they share equipment with tree nuts.
