The Best Fluffy Waffles (gluten-free)

These light and delicious waffles have a crispy exterior and fluffy interior and gluten free. This recipe is perfect for families to share and yields about 4 large waffles (may vary depending on your waffle maker). Make this recipe in advance, let cool on a wire rack and freeze! Pop them into the toaster for a quick breakfast. Top with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey or pure maple syrup (for a flavorful twist, try spreading them with a little light cream cheese and sliced strawberries!)
