Gluten Free Waffles or Pancakes

This recipe is great for waffles but can also be used for pancakes. So far we have tried this with our pecan and hazelnut flour and both were delicious! Using a combination of buckwheat and nut/seed flour from Pepo's gives a lovely texture to this gluten free waffle or pancake mixture. Its superb with a berry compote and yoghurt of your choice!

Makes 6 generous waffles or ~10 pancakes

These waffles/pancakes are:

  • gluten free
  • protein rich
  • full of vitamins, minerals and fibre
  • vegan option by using 1 whole mashed banana and omitting the egg

You'll need:

  • 75g of buckwheat flour
  • 75g of Pepo's nut or seed flour (we recommend hazelnut or pecan)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup or brown sugar
  • 2 TBSP nut butter (try our Nut & Seed butter recipe)
  • 1 TBSP Pepo's nut oil (hazelnut, pecan, walnut, almond)
  • 1/2 medium ripe banana mashed
  • 1 egg 
  • 275ml of your preferred milk (we use almond)
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean extract
  • Coconut butter, Pepo oil or Butter for cooking


  1. Sift dry ingredients: both flours, baking powder and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl
  2. In a separate bowl whisk the egg, mix remaining wet ingredients
  3. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together just until fully incorporated. Set aside for 5-10mins and turn on waffle maker if using
  4. Melt your preferred butter or oil in large fry pan or baste waffle irons with a pastry brush
  5. add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of mix to waffle maker and cook to manufacturers instructions. If making pancakes cook on each side until golden brown and just cooked through.
  6. Serve with toppings of your choice: seasonal fruit, yoghurt, maple syrup or a berry compote if you want to get fancy!
