Cinnamon Bun Gluten Free Waffles with a Greek Yoghurt Drizzle


This recipe first appeared on The Culinary Jumble. The images have been updated and the recipe now includes the option to use spelt flour. 

We often have gluten free waffles at the weekend and coming from Sweden, have a soft spot for cinnamon buns. So, I thought why not get a cinnamon bun/waffle kind of feeling going on? 



These really do remind me of our favourite sweet buns; in fact, my youngest son said they tasted more like cakes than waffles, and from him, that’s a mighty fine compliment.

The funny thing is, five minutes previously, said son had complained bitterly about how he hated gluten free anything. That he hated how we had to have gluten free everything.

Trying hard not to jump on the table and shout “TOLD YOU SO!” while wagging a self-righteous finger manically in his face, I merely smiled and advised that perhaps he should try something first before assuming it didn’t taste nice.



One thing I love about waffles is how accommodating they are towards gluten free flours. I’ve used store-bought blends, oat flour and buckwheat in the past (or a mixture of all) and they’ve never failed me. And of course you could use regular flour if you don’t need them to be gluten free.

The measurements below were enough to make eight waffles ( four were snaffled before I managed to take pictures).

The form you have selected does not exist.

Cinnamon Bun Gluten Free Waffles with a Greek Yoghurt Drizzle



  • 200g gluten free flour (see note 1)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (see note 2)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar (or essence)
  • 2-3 tablespoons brown sugar (use as much or as little as you like)
  • 3 eggs
  • 250ml (1 cup) milk
  • 60ml (¼ cup) Greek yoghurt


  • 2 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
  • icing (powdered) sugar
  • berries (optional)



  • Add all dry ingredients to a bowl and combine well.
  • Whisk all wet ingredients together. Add the wet to the dry and whisk quickly to combine.
  • Cook as per your waffle iron's instructions.


  • Pour the Greek yoghurt into a bowl. Gradually sift the icing sugar in, adding just enough to make a thick, pourable drizzle.
  • Drizzle all over the waffles and throw a few blueberries or other fruit on top if you fancy it. Enjoy!


  1. The original recipe was made using gluten free flour. I used 100g store-bought blend and 100g buckwheat. However, you can use all store bought GF flour, choose your own, or even use regular or spelt flour instead. Just use the same amount of flour as mentioned.
  2. The coconut flour is optional. If you don't use it, just add another tablespoon of whatever flour you are using.
