Fruit Loop Mochi Waffles

Time to take a break from the holiday food and make my Fruit Loop Mochi Waffles.  

These waffles are naturally gluten free and fun for the kids to make. My toddler thought this was the best of both worlds when he saw I was using Fruit Loops in his waffles (another love of his!)

What Do I Need to Make Fruit LoopMochi Waffles

This recipe is easy to make and made with a blend of sweet rice flour, tapioca flour and gluten free all purpose flour. You should be able to find all of these flours at your local grocery stores or co-ops. 

Bob’s Red Mill makes all kinds of gluten free flours and also the sweet rice flour. Another brand of sweet rice flour I like and highly recommend is Mochiko. You can find the Mochiko Brand in your local Asian markets or in my amazon link.

How Do I Store Mochi Waffles

As the waffles finish baking, place them on a cookie sheet to cool. Do not stack them as this can make them soggy.  When they are completely cool, store into an airtight container such as Snapware and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

You can also use a freezer safe zip lock along with parchment paper.

Are Mochi Waffles Gluten Free

I can’t say all mochi waffle recipes are gluten however my recipe is gluten free.

What Kind of Waffle Maker Should I Use

You can use any kind of waffle iron but the serving size will change. I use a belgian waffle maker so the waffles are much larger. If you want to make them smaller, use less batter when you pour it in. 

What Kind of Toppings Can I Use on Fruit Loop Mochi Waffles

I suggest the following toppings:

  • Syrup
  • Agave
  • Fresh fruits
  • More crushed fruit loops
  • Lemon curd
  • Vanilla greek yogurt

  • 1 cup gluten free all purpose flour *see note on Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 cup sweet white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 cup fruit loops partially crushed
  • 1 cup milk 2%
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • maple syrup optional, topping


  • Preheat your waffle iron.
  • Place fruit loops in a zip lock bag and lightly crush them.
  • In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients except the fruit loops.
  • Whisk gently to combine. Then in another medium size bowl, add the wet ingredients and stir.
  • Then add the wet ingredients to the dry. Gently fold in the fruit loops.
  • Spray the waffle iron with non stick spray.
  • Add batter according to your waffle maker size. Cook until light golden.
  • Let them cool for 5 minutes and then serve with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!


Please Note: The gluten free flour blend I use already has Xanthan Gum in it. If your blend doesn’t already include it, you will need to add it . Generally it is 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum for every 1 cup of flour so for this recipe, use 1/2 teaspoon. Add it to the dry ingredients. 
Be careful not to overcook the waffles as that will mess with the mochi texture.
