Funfetti Waffles {Gluten + Dairy Free}

Nothing screams fun and festive like sprinkles.

Funfetti Waffles {Gluten- and Dairy-Free}

These funfetti waffles (gluten + dairy free) are sweet, fluffy, and absolutely sinful. They’re sure to become a breakfast favorite!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Sprinkles make everything better!

Funfetti Waffles {Gluten- and Dairy-Free}

Sweet, fluffy, crispy waffles loaded with colorful sprinkles–you need to jump on this wagon! I’m not kidding, folks, these waffles are wicked tasty. They’re also gluten- and dairy-free (eggs are not a dairy product).

You want to hear a sad fact: I don’t make and eat waffles as often as I would like. I lead a waffle-less life, and it’s all Squirrel’s fault. The man prefers a platter of meat topped with two eggs for breakfast on the weekend. While I’m frying up his bacon, I’m dreaming about a stack of waffles dripping with maple syrup.

I finally put my waffle needs first and made myself a stack of sprinkle-studded waffles that taste a lot like cake.

What makes these waffles so fluffy is the addition of whipped egg whites. Yes, it’s an extra step, but it’s well worth the extra 2 minutes–promise!

The batter comes together easily without any fancy equipment–a mixing bowl, whisk, and rubber spatula are all you’ll need. The only special piece of equipment you’ll need for this recipe is a waffle iron. You don’t have to get all fancy and invest in the mac daddy of waffle irons. My $27 waffle iron makes a wicked good waffle.
