Warning: These waffles are amazing.
I had a jar of Nutella sitting in my cabinet, just screaming to be used. I also just happen to have a waffle maker (Thank you, Black Friday deals!) that I thought needed to be used again. In addition, I was heading to Columbus, Ohio, to visit my friend Jenn for the weekend and she’s a chocoholic as much as I am…so the thought of Nutella waffles was…more than ideal for breakfast one morning. I provided the gluten-free all purpose flour and the Nutella, the rest she had or we picked up there.
There are plenty of recipes out there for waffles topped with Nutella. But I wanted to actually incorporate it into the waffles. And what I managed was this recipe here below.
Trust me…you’ll be hooked at first choco-hazelnut bite.
Recipe: Gluten-Free Nutella Waffles
Time: Prep 15 minutes; Cook 30 minutes
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1-3/4 cups milk (I used lactose-free milk because that’s what we had, but I think these would be amazing with vanilla coconut milk)
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1-1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 heaping spoonfuls of Nutella (best measurement ever!)
Preheat waffle iron.
Beat in remaining ingredients.
Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray.
Pour 3/4 cup to 1 cup of batter onto waffle iron and cook for about 5 minutes, until done.
We came up with a variety of ways to eat these. With ice cream and Kahlua on top, dusted with powdered sugar, topped with chocolate chips, etc. But we went for the standard breakfast format…this time. With a spread of butter and a nice serving of real maple syrup.
It was…delicious with every bite.
A word of warning. Be careful when you pour the batter into the waffle iron. I had a Nutella batter Niagara Falls on my first waffle attempt. It still yielded a delicious Nutella waffle…it just left me with a big mess to clean up on Jenn’s counter. Aside from that…cook these up one morning. No one will be disappointed.
I mean…it’s made with Nutella. It can’t be bad!
