I've never bought gluten-free waffles as I figure anything I make myself is so much better than any processed gluten-free product. Have you ever thought of making your own? They're really simple.

Thus far I've used gluten-free Bisquick and Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix. Recipes on the box/bag. Unless you go all out for something fancy schmancy, a waffle iron is a pretty inexpensive investment. You could double the recipe and have a nice stash in the freezer. Much cheaper, and I'm sure much better, than anything you could buy.

Edit: I've used both of those mixes for pancakes, too. They also freeze well.

I echo Sylvia's sentiments. Making waffles from scratch gluten free is a very simple way to please your palate! :)

When I first went gluten free I went on a gluten free binge which was not a good way to approach things. I ate a lot of processed foods, including waffles that tasted probably a little bit better than toilet paper. And the waffle squares themselves were probably about the same size as a square of tp. Incredibly disappointing.

I like the Van's, but prefer the blueberry and the apple varieties. Try these and put them in the toaster twice. Tastes "normal" to me!

I like Van's too! I've had the flax and the blueberry varieties and I like them both, as do my kids who are picky and not gluten-free.

Nature's Path Buckwheat Wildberry. SO much better than Van's, in my opinion. For me they have a better consistency and don't fall apart quite so easily.

I can't eat them because they generally have other problem ingredients, but we buy vans and trader joe's waffles for my 3 year old son as a quick breakfast option during the week. Obviously, not the most discriminating palate, but they do get consumed. The 5 year old eats them sometimes too and has no complaints. Yes, you'll get better results making your own, but we still haven't managed to replace our waffle maker, so I can't speak to specifics on that one.

After reading this post yesterday, I went out and bought Van's bluberry ones and they are better than I thought they would be! I only saw bluberry and plain I believe. What other flavors do they have?

I know that they have Apple & Cinnamon (blueberry is slightly better IMO).

For a protein treat, I like a tablespoon of almond butter on them with syrup. Delicious!

I am not normally a fan of Trader Joe's as their gluten free selection is very limited,but I go there just to purchase their gluten free waffles! I have tried various other brands,such as Vans,but none compare. I'd be interested if others feel the same.

I don't know if it's regional maybe because no one has mentioned them, but I just bought a brand called Julian's and my daughter loved them.

However, it would be cheaper (and you could alter the taste to your liking) by making some and freezing them. I wrap them in packs of two with wax paper then put them in gallon freezer bags. I can then add whatever I want, like strawberries or chocolate chips, to them.
