Where do I find Ube Syrup?!

The ube syrup is going to consist of using 1 teaspoon of Ube Spread from Trader Joe’s plus 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. You can double this, triple this or adjust accordingly to how much you need. You want to whisk them together and make sure it’s not too thick as you want that pretty drizzle coming down hitting that warm and crispy waffle.

If you can’t locate Ube Spread, as this is seasonal at Trader Joe’s, you can use regular maple syrup or agave.

A note on the serving size:

One of the main things you want to think about when cooking this dish is the serving size. The serving size will depend on what kind of waffle iron you are using. I use a large Belgium waffle maker and it makes 4 waffles.

Should you refrigerate or freeze waffles?

When making waffles, you want to keep the texture. The refrigerator will ruin that therefore you want to freeze them . To properly store left overs or save for meal preps, as you make the waffles, do not stack them.

Have a sheet pan ready with some parchment paper on top, and place and space the waffles out. Let them cool completely and then you want to store them in freezer safe zip lock bags. I normally use the smaller sandwich bags and then I put a 1/2 waffle in it. This is good for when your family wants smaller portions. Also you can wrap them in parchment (also if you are stacking them in the bag) and then place them in the freezer bag, but this isn’t necessary especially if you plan to consume them within a couple of weeks.

Another great way to freeze waffles is to use a glass food storage container, such as Snapware . You can line it with parchment paper and layer in 2 waffles. I like the 4 cup square container as it holds the waffles nicely.

They will remain good in the freezer for 3 months.

How do I reheat frozen waffles?

You want to use the microwave and reheat for 30-60 seconds. You can also use your toaster oven or a regular oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

What are good toppings for Fruity Pebble Waffles?

Well you can never go wrong with fruit! I suggest blueberries and bananas but ones imagination can run wild when it comes to a waffle bars and toppings! One thing to keep in mind, if you are using the Ube Syrup, it’s pretty darn sweet. My suggestion is to balance that out with the fruit.

  • 1 large mixing bowl for the dry ingredients
  • 1 medium mixing bowl for the wet ingredients
  • waffle maker
  • non stick baking spray
  • tongs
  • Whisk
  • sheet pan


  • 1 cup gluten free flour all purpose
  • 1 cup ground cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar or regular white sugar would work
  • 1/2 cup fruity pebbles cereal, plus more for topping (optional)
  • 1 cup milk, 2%
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ube spread from Trader Joe's -optional
  • maple syrup as needed


  • Preheat the waffle maker on medium low heat.
    In a large mixing bowl, add the gluten free flour and the corn meal.
  • Then add the baking soda, salt, and cane sugar.
  • Give it a quick stir with a whisk and then add the fruity pebbles. Gently combine.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add the wet ingredients.
  • Gently stir and add to the dry ingredients.
  • When the waffle maker is ready, give it a quick spray and carefully add about 1/3 cup of the batter.
    Please Note: I use a Belgium Waffle Maker so it can hold a little more batter than the smaller waffle makers. Adjust accordingly.
  • Cook the waffle until done. The waffle should be a nice golden yellow.
  • Serve immediately with a drizzle of syrup and fresh fruit.
  • Enjoy!


If using the ube spread, mix 1 teaspoon of ube spread to 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup. You want the consistency to not be too thick. Another option is to spread the ube spread on the waffle directly then drizzle the maple syrup. Either way, you’ll love it 🙂
