Gluten-Free Banana Waffle Party!

by hillarybiscay

This morning after my run and swim, the GCM and I had a waffle-extravaganza here with our friend TJ. Waffle parties are a little tradition that we have with TJ and his wife, Ash (the super runner), when she is in town.

We have been using this Pamela’s gluten-free mix for our waffles, but this evening as I went to finally get this recipe in writing to share here, I came to the very disturbing realization that it in fact contains buttermilk.

Since going gluten-free, I find all too often that I have to make the choice for a gluten free or vegan product. Does anyone have a waffle mix that meets both needs??? HELP!

waffle with enjoy life choc chip

This was my choc-chip waffle with the Enjoy Life brand chips, which are both vegan and gluten-free. And this was our almost-foolproof protein waffle recipe:


5 ripe mashed bananas (we use these as a substitute for eggs and they make the waffles so much more flavorful anyways!)

6 cups waffle mix

Nutribiotic Vanilla Brown Rice Protein (substitute as much protein as you want for the waffle mix, so if you add a cup of brown rice protein (which would be a bit much!), take out a cup of waffle mix

3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk

4 tbsp. sunflower oil

Coconut oil or other oil spray

optional: Enjoy Life mini chips


Mix all of the above together. Spray heated waffle iron with coconut oil and pour the mix in! Cook ‘til golden brown and top with whatever you can imagine. The above feeds four very hungry triathletes or probably 8 or more normal people!

These were our vegan and non-vegan toppings this morning . . .

Oh yeah, there was fruit involved as well! TJ enjoyed the fruit-nutella combo, which he provided for our feast. Gotta get this boy fueled to crush it this weekend at Ironman 70.3 Panama!

She was desperate.

The waffles were darn good but now I am really bummed about the truth about Pamela’s mix.

Does anyone have a vegan and gluten-free waffle mix suggestion??
