Gluten-Free Cornbread Waffles

recipe image


  • 1/2 cup masa harina
  • 1/4 cup fine/medium ground cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup oat flour (gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened almond milk (or other milk)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon honey


  1. Preheat your waffle maker to just over medium heat and grease if necessary.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk the egg until pale yellow, then whisk in the milk, melted butter, and honey.
  4. Pour the wet into the dry and whisk until just combined. Do not over-stir.
  5. Let sit undisturbed for 7 minutes. The batter will thicken and puff during this time. After sitting the batter will be very thick and airy.
  6. Scoop half of the batter onto the hot waffle maker and gently spread around with a spatula or butter knife.
  7. Cook until golden brown. I like to cook over a medium heat for about 1 1/2 cycles. The resulting waffle will be golden brown and soft [but fully cooked through] to the touch, but it will firm up slightly as it cools. If your waffle maker is too hot, the exterior will become very crispy and the inside won’t fully cook.
  8. Serve immediately with fruit topping, butter, and honey, or all three.
  9. To store: Let fully cool before storing in an airtight container. Keep in the fridge for 1 to 2 days and reheat in the toaster or oven, or freeze and reheat the same way.
  10. Notes/Substitutions: To make this dairy-free use unrefined coconut oil in place of the butter. It will lead to a mild coconut flavor but will lend the same buttery texture. If you cannot tolerate oats in your diet sub in a high quality all-purpose gluten-free flour blend only for the oat flour at a 1:1 ratio.
