I also did a gluten-free option of these waffles which was yummy. It was so good my family had no idea they were gluten-free until I told them afterwards of course.

I like Pamela's gluten-free pancake mix which I see can also be used for waffles, we will try the mix the next round. waffle batter in silicone mouldFirst how did I bake the waffles? Well I used a fabulous silicone waffle mold from Amazon HERE. They are a decent price for a set of two. Or look for some fun shaped waffle molds, I've seen heart-shaped ones and more. 

Do baked waffles taste as good as one from a waffle maker?

They sure do, in fact, I can't taste any difference. You can see a difference though as one side of the waffles doesn't have the indentations as you can see below.baked waffles

I love the silicone mold that I have (it's the one above) I can make four waffles at the same time and it's easy and not messy at all.

This oven-baked waffles recipe is easy to make gluten-free and ideal for weekday or weekend breakfast! Add your favorite toppings whether they are sweet (our favorite) or savory & enjoy.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 2 cups all purpose flour (or substitute as mentioned above)
  • 2 tablespoon sugar (if you want you can add 3 tablespoon I used 2)
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon basking soda
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups of milk
  • vanilla extract if desired - I always use it and add to taste we LOVE vanilla
  • ¼ cup of oil (I like coconut oil but you can use a vegetable oil)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F
  2. Combine dry ingredients in medium to large mixing bowl
  3. In another bowl mix eggs, milk, vanilla extract (if using) and oil
  4. Add the wet ingredients to dry and mixed until combined, no big lumps
  5. Brush coconut oil (or oil of choice) or use cooking spray on silicone mold
  6. Pour waffle batter into mold filling no more than ¾ (for gluten free for regular flour maybe half way) make sure to fill all corners.
  7. Bake 12-15 minutes until the waffles look golden brown, if the top is golden brown the bottom should be too.
  8. Take out of oven flip mold (use oven mitts as silicone can be hot) and the waffles will fall out. Serve and enjoy!

Can you freeze the oven-baked waffles?

Yes! We like to make extras of these waffles and freeze them, way better than any frozen waffles you buy in the store. These are great for freezing, they're like your own Eggo Waffle but better and with better ingredients, because you know what went into them. My daughter likes to put them in a toaster or toaster oven. They also warm up nicely in an AirFryer Oven.waffles

They are a bit crispy on the outside but soft on the inside, a tasty waffle indeed. She just tops hers with maple syrup but I love mine with fresh fruit and sometimes some whipped cream.So make a big batch and freeze some for later to be taken out whenever you need them or are just craving a waffle.

Make sure to PIN this recipe for later!

  1. These were sooooo good!! Just made them this morning. My teen daughter woke up at the heavenly smell while they were baking, stumbled in the kitchen, drowned one in maple syrup and ate it all in silence. Then stumbled back out to bed again (in Italy it's summer vacation). I think it's teen speak for "These are so good I wil get out of bed for them" 😀

  2. I haven't tried your recipe yet, but looking at the ingredients it seems really good! I'd like to do these waffles to freeze them for later. But I wondered how to do it? Do I wait until they reach normal temperature and then heat them up or can I take them straight from the freezer to the oven/air fryer? Do you have a best method you recommend?

    • Hi Luisa, I let them defrost a bit until soft around the edges and I used a toaster for them. Every appliance is different. You can defrost and do the oven. I haven't rewarmed them in an air fryer yet but that's a good idea! If you completely defrost they might be soggy but the oven should crisp them up enough on the outside 🙂

  3. These are the best oven baked waffles. Light and fluffy and so good with whipped cream and fruit sauce. I also place blueberries in the batter after filling the silicone forms. A nice variation.

    • Thanks for sharing Barb, so glad you liked this recipe. Blueberries in the batter is always a yummy option 🙂

  4. These were absolutely delicious! Thanks for the recipe. So yummy and fluffy. I even have batter left to make some more tomorrow (I might share them with my son!) I added banana maple syrup and squirty cream. Very indulgent!

  5. I wish that we knew about these waffle molds a long time ago. We love waffles in our house and purchased two electric waffle makers so that we can feed 4 hungry kids and Dad. My wife got the great idea of making extra and freezing them - reheat in toaster. Making extra also helped reduce the big cleanup job of the electric waffle makers, not fun. Try freezing the a few waffles in ziplock bags so you can grab the number you want and them warm them up in the toaster, works well for us. Even the kids can reheat the frozen waffles themselves.

  6. Any tips or thoughts on if this could be done with a cast iron waffle iron, the kind that you can use on the stove(non glass top stove anyways)?

  7. Just ordered 2 pans from WISH should be here by next week. Have had these walls and they are great. My sister would make about 16 and freeze them. We toasted are micro waved them either way they are yummy. Thanks for the share.

  8. I found your blog after purchased cheap silicon mould from our local grocery shop. Finally made it today and my girls love it (I haven't tasted myself, being a diabetic I had to follow my eating plan :)). I used up all the batter to fill up 6 cavities of the mould but they turned out too thick (still looked good though). I wonder if I could leave the batter waiting until I can bake the second batch.

  9. Wow-- I had no idea there was a way to do waffles in the oven-- looks easy enough for me-- Need to find one of these pans first. In fact we had waffles for dinner tonight-- its always a hit any time of the day. I'll be checking in to getting one of these pans. Thanks for your creative ideas.

  10. Hi from Slovenia - Europe 🙂 so the other side - had to share - bought silicone moulds two days ago in one of our shops and HORROR - how to bake waffles in it? Luckily my best friend Uncle Google found you 🙂 Prepared the waffles for dinner tonight - the last time we ate waffles was at Lake Arrowhead in California on vacation last summer - and my men (3 of them) were schocked HOW DID YOU DO THESE? 😀 Put a bowl of fresh strawberries, a big jar of Nutella and whiped cream on the table and it was PERFECT! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

  11. I never thought to make waffles in the oven. I love that mold. I will be trying your recipe and add blueberries. My daughter happens to be on wafflee kick so I know she's going to want these. Thanks for sharing.

  17. WOW ! In the oven? Never heard of that before! That is one way to turn out a bunch at one time! Super great sounding recipe! Thanks for sharing! You are one smart cookie!

  18. Oh what a great idea. I never saw these silicone waffle molds before. I think I will purchase them. I hate cleaning the waffle iron.

  20. Wow what a great idea. I want to look for this mold. Baking seems so much easier too. I would love to try this. Am going to the mall soon and will be looking for this. Thanks for the info!!!

  21. This is great, I think it would be easier just to pop them in the oven instead of having to watch the waffle maker, and gluten free is all I can eat, thanks

  22. What a great idea! They look delicious! Love the idea of making extras and freezing them for later!!! What a time saver!

  23. I've never seen waffles baked in the oven. These look soooo good! Definitely going to pin this and try them. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  24. Hello thank you for the recipe options for preparing these waffles I am not sure what glutten free option is but I will enjoy it I am sure.

  25. This is the first I have seen of the Gluten Free Waffles and cooked in the oven with a silicone mold very unigue. Thank you, Jerri Davis

  26. I like that I can make these any way I choose. My Daughter has a friend who has to eat gluten free foods. I don't think we are far out from sleep overs, it's good to have this recipe. I can make this for breakfast when she finally does sleep over. I pinned. Thank you.

  27. I want to get these molds. My granddaughters love coming to my house all summer 2 days a week and I make Pamela's waffles for them from the mix. Thank you for the recipe, too.

  28. Can I just tell you thank you so much for posting this recipe! I have been searching the internet for a waffle recipe to use with my new waffle silicone molds and I had almost given up before finding yours. I was going to settle for finding a wheat flour recipe and having to tweak it (with great difficulty) so it's gluten free but now I've found your recipe and I'm set! No more greasy & stinky waffle iron. You.are.the.best! 🙂

  29. Never seen this silicone mold available before. Great idea, and allot less messier. I definitely will be on the lookout for this. Our family loves waffles!

  30. Wow! I had no idea you could bake waffles in the oven...very interesting!! I'm going to try this recipe with my family, and I'm sure they will love them. Thanks for sharing!

  31. I didn't know that there were silicone molds for waffles. It makes it so much easier to bake them and they are healthier too.

  32. This sounds awesome and yummy. Having 6 waffles ready at the same time is a plus for me. Now, on to Amazon or Ebay to search for the molds!

  33. I love the thought of home-made waffles for my family.They have to be more wholesome and healthier.I love the simplicity of doing them in the oven too.Thanks so much for sharing this.

  34. I've never heard of this way of cooking waffles, but love the idea that 6 waffles will be ready all at the same time. The standing and waiting and watching for each waffle to finish cooking in a waffle maker is what keeps me from making them more often. Do they ever stick in the mold?

  35. Love the waffle molds! I have never seen them but I definitely want them! So much easier than storing a waffle maker!

  36. My youngest loves waffles. Easier to clean than a waffle iron and better than frozen. I'll be looking for these molds! Thank you!!

  37. I really like these. Easy to use right in your oven, dont need a big heavy waffle iron to have to clean either. Easy clean up . Love it . thanks

  38. This recipe sounds great I will share it with my daughter in law and she would love the gluten free option, now the oven waffle mold is really cool, I have never seen one, but will be on the look out for one, all we have is an old electric waffle maker which I guess could make thse waffles also. Thanks for sharing the information on this mold.
