Vans Wheat Free/gluten Free Gourmet Waffles

Recommended Posts

Well...I was at Trader Joes today....bought two boxes! I was shocked that they were so much cheaper than the Vans one! OMGOOOODNESSSS!!!

I paid $1.69 for the TJ's, the Van's are usually $2.79.

I hope I like them as much.

:)

HI,

I have to admit the first time I tried them about a year ago I did not like them. I was putting them in the toaster.

However, I recently had bought them again to try, but this time I have been putting them in the microwave for about 1 minute and somehow, they are coming out very moist and yummy!

Well, I made it to Trader Joes last week. I just opened the TJ's waffles which were $1.79 for 8 of them. I don't like them as much as the Van's, honestly. BUT for the difference in price, I will settle for them! LOL :D Van's being $2.79 for SIX is frustrating! Oh well.

You can make a really great stuffing using the Vans waffles. My gluten-free hubby says it's the closest to stove top taste he's had!!

Do you have the recipe for that?

I've tried the Vans ones - what is the weird almost minty flavor that's there? I had a hard time with the texture - but just toasted them. I'll have to try the suggestions above...

Also, there is this gluten free blogger, the Gluten Free Goddess, (can I post her website here??) she makes a strata with the Van's waffles. (Strata - an egg and veggie and normally bread, cheese combo that you let sit overnight, them bake in the morning...and the Van's waffles hold up!)
