Follow this easy five-step recipe to create the best 100% buckwheat waffles that are gluten-free and bursting with flavor.


  – 2 cups 100% buckwheat flour – 2 teaspoons baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 2 tablespoons sugar (optional for sweetness) – 2 large egg – 1 3/4 cups milk (dairy or plant-based) – 1/3 cup melted butter or oil – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)



In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of 100% buckwheat flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. If you have a sweet tooth, add 2 tablespoons of sugar for a touch of sweetness.


Step 1

In a separate bowl, beat 2 large eggs and then add 1 3/4 cups of milk. For a richer flavor, use whole milk, or choose a plant-based alternative for a dairy-free option. Pour in 1/3 cup of melted butter or oil and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract if desired.


Step 2

Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture, stirring gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to denser waffles. The batter should be slightly lumpy.


Step 3

Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Lightly grease the waffle plates with cooking spray or a small amount of melted butter to prevent sticking.


Step 4

Pour the batter onto the preheated waffle iron, spreading it evenly. Close the lid and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp. Cooking times may vary, but it typically takes 4-6 minutes. Once done, carefully remove the waffles and serve them hot with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh berries, or a dollop of whipped cream.
