Easy Gluten-free Vegan Yeast Waffles

Take everything you know about making waffles at home and ignore it for a minute.

Because these magical gluten-free, vegan yeast waffles are in a league of their own!

Nix the batter. We’re making dough.

Forget the baking powder. We’re playing with yeast.

But certainly don’t skimp on the toppings, because we like our waffles LOADED!

Don’t fret about the complications of making a yeasted pastry that’s both gluten-free and vegan, because Young Kobra’s magical flour blend takes all the crazy ratios and guessing games out of the picture, and creates a perfectly textured, fluffy, bread meets traditional waffle creation. And it’s exactly what your  weekend brunch has been missing!

I simply added a few tradition waffle ingredients, plant-based butter (oil works too) and milk, to the flour blend and yeast to make this baking mix waffle-worthy. 

The texture is absolutely perfect (similar to a yeast donut) for soaking up maple syrup, and they even heat up amazing leftover (just rewarm on the waffle machine over medium heat for 4-5 minutes!)

Have you ever seen a homemade brunch this deliciously beautiful??

Yeasted Waffles (Gluten-free, Vegan) (Makes 6 medium waffles)


1 + 1-2 tbsp c Young Kobras GF mix

1/2 tbsp yeast (packet included in mix)

3/4 c almond milk

2.5 tbsp Miyoko’s butter (or other plant-based butter)

1 tbsp maple syrup (I love Runamok Maple)

1 tsp honey or organic cane sugar


Measure out flour and place in a large bowl.

Combine the yeast and sugar in a 2 c measuring cup

Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the milk and stir over low heat until barely warm – about 100 degrees F.

Pour milk mixture and maple syrup over yeast mixture and stir. Wait 5 minutes.

Pour liquid into bowl with flour and mix to combine.

After 20 minutes, form the mixture into a tight ball, cover with a towel and place in a warm place for 30-40 minutes. 

Divide into 6 equal pieces and roll each into a small ball. Allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Cook 1 waffles at a time in your waffle iron, starting at medium-high heat and adjusting/flipping as needed.

Place in a 275 degree oven to keep warm while making remaining waffles.

Serve warm with toppings of choice!
