Gluten Free Waffle Cones – dairy free and vegan! – summer recipe

Video Vegan ice cream cones

There’s something about ice cream shops that beckons you inside, even from several shops away. You know what it is — it’s certainly not the smell of ice cream. It’s that sweet aroma of fresh-baked waffle cones wafting down the boardwalk.

The smell alone makes me crave an ice cream cone any time of year, although I can rarely have one because the cones aren’t gluten-free and the ice cream isn’t dairy-free. It’s times like this when a good recipe is all you need to recreate that feeling, and to satisfy that craving.

And I’m happy to share it with you so you never have to go without, either!

This gluten free waffle cone recipe is so quick and easy, you’ll never have mad respect for an ice cream shop again. Now you know the secret and you have the power to make those delectable cookie cones anytime!

I will say that you should get yourself one of those handy-dandy waffle cone irons or a pizzelle iron.

I’ll lobby you for the pizzelle iron though, because you’re going to want pizzelles come the holidays and cannolis come … anytime! (And yes, I have a recipe for those, too!)

I’ve linked to the pizzelle iron I love and use (mine is the polished surface, not the non-stick) and I found a respectable waffle cone iron for you for under $35* – one caveat, I haven’t tried it myself, but if you get it and do try it, please leave a comment about how you like it!

And if you’re looking for a great homemade ice cream recipe, I have that for you, too! My gluten free vegan homemade ice cream recipe is great in any flavor, and even has added protein to make you less sheepish about having that extra scoop!

I don’t recommend this recipe for a regular waffle iron or using in a pan because the batter is super duper thick. When I tried it in a waffle iron, it puffed up and made a lovely waffle, but not one you could roll into a cone.

However you choose to make these beauties, and whether you want to dip them in chocolate or leave them as pristine vanilla cookies, you’ll love them. I promise!

Be sure to use my gfJules Flour – this recipe produces a delicate cone that has no grit, is soft and pliable but is nice and crunchy once set; I can’t guarantee that using another blend will produce these same results.

Simply whip up the ingredients until smooth and light, then plop a dollop or two (depending on the size of your pizzelle or waffle cone maker) in your iron and bake for about two minutes. It’s that easy!
