Gluten-free Zucchini Bread Waffles: Jessi's KitchenThese Gluten-free Zucchini Bread Waffles are EVERYTHING! I can’t believe these have not been a part of my life forever! Ah! SO GOOD.

I am currently writing up this recipe on our way to Chicago. I actually think they are going to make me put my laptop away soon. NOOO….I want to finish this. Maybe they will let me finish up but it doesn’t look like. I have been editing the pictures for this post for the past 30 minutes and now I am completely starving and stuck on a plane. So there’s that….

Let’s talk some about these waffles. They are based off a traditional zucchini bread recipe. They are full of grated zucchini, flavorful spices and just a whole lot of deliciousness.

I decided to use Otto’s Cassava Flour as the base for these waffles. I really really love the texture of cassava flour and it always lends a super crispy waffle on the outside that is just asking to be drenched in butter and maple syrup. Okay – so you don’t have to do that but waffles with butter and syrup are kind of my kryptonite.

I really wanted to get a recipe up on the blog with some zucchini since it has been in season. Produce in season is always better and I love the flavor and texture it gives to these waffles. Also, you can take comfort in the fact that your waffles have vegetables in them. Just kidding – I don’t need to justify my waffle consumption ;).

These really are a great weekend treat. You can easily freeze and reheat the waffles too.

  1. These look great, though if we don’t have cassava flour, can we use a gluten free blend or coconut flour? Thanks!

  2. Hey! Coconut will not work. It is too dense. I am afraid I don’t know if a gf flour blend will work. I have not tried it. Feel free to give it a try if you want but I really don’t know if it will turn out.
