Nature’s Path Gluten-Free Frozen Waffles are Popping Up Everywhere

6

Though I often make them at home, I’m always drawn in when I pass by the frozen waffles at the natural food store. The number of dairy-free varieties available makes me giddy, and I feel like I have Nature’s Path to thank for this. They have been a pioneer in healthier frozen waffles, first starting with their wheat-based waffles, and now with a rather sizable line of  gluten-free waffles. And as of our last check, all are made without any dairy ingredients! In fact, Nature’s Path Gluten-Free Frozen Waffles are also egg-free and vegan-friendly.

Nature’s Path Gluten-Free Frozen Waffles are Popping Up Everywhere

These Eggo-sized waffles are very light and crispy, if not a touch delicate, with notable bits of seeds and whole grains. The flavors are mild, yet earthy, and provide a warm backdrop for maple syrup or drizzly nut butter.

Light and crispy

4.0 rating
February 11, 2020

Light, crispy, and a touch delicate, these frozen waffles are a delight, whether topped with maple syrup or slathered with nut butter. The Chia Plus have a slightly earthy flavor that is complimentary to most toppings. But with a name that boasts chia, quinoa, and amaranth, we’d hoped for a little more whole-grain taste and a noteworthy amount fiber and protein in the nutritional profile.

  3. The pumpkin spice ones were AMAZING! I only saw them once. Ate the box very quickly and cant find them again. I do not like Vans and stayed away from waffles for years because of it. I havent tried the other flavors but I would highly recommend these. I was diagnosed with Celiac a few years ago and have had many trials and errors.
