6 Gluten-Free Frozen Waffle Brands

A diagnosis of celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite convenience foods, like frozen waffles. Gluten-free food manufacturers have stepped up to provide gluten-free frozen waffle options for those adhering to a gluten-free diet.

You can enjoy apple cinnamon waffles or waffles fortified with omega-3 fatty acids, or choose traditional favorites like plain or blueberry waffles. If you’re a parent looking for kid-friendly gluten-free foods, mini-waffles might do the trick. And you can keep all of them conveniently in your freezer, ready to pull out and pop into the oven, toaster, or toaster oven.

Kashi offers two different types of frozen gluten-free waffles: Original and Cinnamon. Both types also are non-GMO verified and vegan. Note that they contain oats. Other ingredients include tapioca, pea, and flax.

Kashi's frozen waffles are gluten-free to less than 20 parts per million since they carry a gluten-free label. They are not made in a dedicated facility, however. Note that Kashi also makes gluten-containing waffles in several flavors, so make certain to purchase the correct box: look for the large "gluten-free" designation.

A Word From Verywell

Gluten-free frozen waffles are available in most larger grocery stores. If you don't find them with conventional frozen waffles, check in the frozen gluten-free section (many stores have a separate section for frozen gluten-free products) or in the frozen natural foods section.

If you can eat oats, you should be fine with any of the brands listed here. If oats are problematic for you, steer clear of Kellogg's and Kashi brands, and choose one of the others.
