Gluten-free waffles with strawberry-blackberry compote recipe

This breakfast dish is filling, and it makes a beautiful presentation. Use your favorite berries for the compote. I matched the yogurt flavor for the waffles (blackberry) to the berries used for the compote.

Serves 2-4

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Total time: 25 minutes


For the waffles

  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 ounces strawberry or blackberry yogurt
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Whipped topping (optional)

For the berry compote

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup diced strawberries (reserve a few for garnish)
  • 1 cup blackberries (reserve a few for garnish)


For the waffles

  1. Preheat a waffle iron. Lightly spray the sections with the nonstick cooking spray.
  2. To a large bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and whisk to combine.
  3. To a separate bowl, add the beaten eggs and milk. Whisk to combine. Add the yogurt, and mix until combined.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, and stir until smooth.
  5. When the waffle iron is hot, add the batter to the waffle sections. Bake until lightly crisp and golden. Remove from the waffle iron, and serve warm with the compote.

For the berry compote

  1. To a saucepan over medium heat, add the orange juice and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil, then add the fruit.
  2. Cook the mixture for about 10 minutes or until it thickens. Remove it from the heat, and stir in the vanilla.
  3. The compote will thicken a bit as it cools. Serve over the warm waffles with whipped topping (optional) and the reserved berries as garnish.
