What gluten free flour blend do you recommend?

Can I only use coconut flour?
Coconut flour need a high volume amount of liquid for a little amount of flour. We have found it best to combine the two.

We prefer oat milk; however, any plant based milk will work in this recipe. If you love the coconut flavor, coconut milk is great in it.

You could sub the coconut sugar for brown sugar if needed.
How do you make vegan coconut flour waffles?
First combine the milk and apple cider vinegar together. Let sit for 10 minutes. This makes vegan buttermilk.
While waiting, in a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Whisk together.
When ready, pour in the vegan buttermilk, maple syrup, and both extracts.
Combine with a spatula, just until blended together.
Let mixture sit for 20-25 minutes. It will thicken up and this is what you want for your waffles.
Once your mixture has sat, then proceed with cooking the waffles according to your waffle maker instructions.
Repeat until no mixture is left.

You definitely can. The pancakes will not be super fluffy, but pancakes none the less. You also want to make sure that you cook on a medium low temperature.

Great waffles! Fluffy, crispy, easy to make and delicious. The only thing i changed was to swap maple syrup for oil, I just had none in my cupboard. Finally some proper vegan waffles! Thank you!

I have been looking for a coconut flour waffle recipe, and I chose yours because of the vegan buttermilk! The first batch I made, I loved. I brought my waffle maker over to my partner’s house to make them some, but the recipe was on my home computer! I tried to do it through memory but…nope. LOL! Will repeat. Saved and loved, thank you for sharing!
So happy that you enjoyed them! Thanks for taking time to leave a review, we appreciate it!
This recipe made great waffles…I was wandering if I could use spelt flour & the coconut flour and let sit overnight along with the other ingredients. What do you think?
Glad to hear you enjoyed! We haven’t tried with spelt flour though we would think it would work though you may not need as much liquid
