These mango waffles are packed with the summery flavor of mangoes and they are entirely gluten-free. Four kinds of flour make these waffles a nutritious and delicious breakfast.
Here’s a decadent weekend-morning recipe that will not hug your waistline for eternity: gluten-free Mango Waffles.
When I make gluten-free baked goods, I stay away from those readymade flour mixes that tend to make the end product gummy. Mixes, in my opinion, also have a rather strong flavor that doesn’t always work with baked goods and they tend to be, like many gluten-free foods, pretty starchy.
For my healthy vegan gluten-free waffles, I use four kinds of flour: sorghum, millet, brown rice, and cornmeal. You can use all four or even a couple, although if you did that go with the sorghum and millet rather than the brown rice and cornmeal.
These waffles, as you surely gathered from the title, also contain the goodness of mangoes: the delicious fruit that makes summers sunnier. If you've read this blog before, you know I love those mangoes and have tried them in just about everything: Mango Cupcakes, Mango Bread Vegan Mango Pie, Vegan Mango Muffins, Vegan Mango Biscotti Vegan Mango Cornbread Mango Halwa, Vegan Mango Cheesecake...you name it, I've made it and always with delicious results because that's just how it is with mango: you can't go wrong.
For this recipe I used canned mango puree that I buy at the Indian store. You can puree fresh mangoes, if you’d rather; I just love the taste of the Indian Alphonso mango which, in my opinion, is the best mango ever. I can only find the canned version here in the United States, but I’m not complaining—it works!
Here’s the recipe. Enjoy, all!
Mango Waffles, Gluten-Free
- ½ cup millet flour
- ½ cup sorghum flour
- ½ cup brown rice flour
- ¼ cup stone-ground cornmeal
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mango puree
- ¾ cup nondairy milk , such as almond or soy
- ¼ cup water
- 2 tablespoon flaxmeal
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Whisk together all the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- In another bowl, mix the flax and water and beat until well-mixed. Then add the mango puree, nondairy milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk together.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until everything’s well incorporated.
- Heat a waffle iron and spray lightly with oil. Follow manufacturer’s directions to bake the waffles. I have a Belgian waffle iron and this recipe made six rather hefty waffles.
- Serve hot with some fresh diced mango, vegan whipped cream, and maple syrup. Or eat by itself. It’s great either way.

Is that CANNED mango puree from Indian grocery store? Or pureed fresh mangoes? Which is better for this recipe?
Canned puree. You can puree fresh mangoes and it would work just fine.
Thanks. I want to use regular all-purpose flour for this recipe. Which of the flours should I omit in this recipe? Is the flax meal related to gluten-free purpose?
You can replace all of the gluten-free flours with all purpose-- use the same amounts. I would recommend keeping the cornmeal because it adds great texture. And the flaxmeal helps the waffles bind, although in this case the mango puree would also act as a binder, so you can leave it out. Add a little moisture-- like almond milk or soy milk or water-- if the batter is too dry.
mango waffles, thats new! I like all things mango - I've seen some really good waffle recipes - I think its time to invest in a waffle iron.
The waffles look fantastic! the problem with some of the mixes apart from all the gum and starch, is the chickpea flour in them. I got a bag once , made cookies and threw them all out:)
Wow, makes me drool.. A healthy way to enjoy the otherwise guilt loaded waffles ! That too in mango flavor 🙂
I am a first time visitor to your Page, loved the idea of mango waffles. I like it.
What a great coincidence! I also just made gluten-free waffles for my blog.
I always see the canned mango puree at the Indian store and never know what to do with it. Now I have a lot o great inspiration.
Delicious and mouthwatering...
What a beautiful idea! Mango waffles! I love waffles ... also love the way you have used so many kinds of flours. Wish I had a waffle maker at home.
Manasi, I buy it from Whole Foods (Arrowhead Mills) and sometimes the Indian store (bajra flour). You could use whole-wheat too, if you're not fussy about the gluten. Oat, barley, soy, and singoda flour would work too.
yummy and delicios pancakes...luv it!

Where do you buy millet flour from?
Those waffles sure look like the real thing, I mean they look crispy and perfect 🙂 Love the addition of mango puree. Will definitely try these..
