Kellogg’s has recently revealed that their Eggo waffles are now gluten-free. Their tasty waffles are available in two flavors: original and cinnamon. This is super exciting news for celiac and gluten sensitive consumers, as breakfast-on-the-go options are slim.
Gluten-free Eggo waffles have hit shelves across the country and are available in the frozen food sections of your grocery store and Kellogg has insisted that they have gone above and beyond to make sure that the waffles maintain their “crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside” texture that Eggo waffles are known for.

Coming on the heels of General Mill’s announcement of gluten-free Cheerios, Eggo waffles are joining the ranks of gluten-free breakfast options. This is exciting news for the gluten-free community at large, but especially for parents of picky eaters who are struggling with breakfast and snack options for their gluten-free kiddos.
Eggo waffles are not only easy to prepare, but are considered an excellent source of calcium and iron, with 25% of your daily value per serving. They are also packed with eight other vitamins and minerals. To make eggo waffles gluten-free, Kellogg’s switched to rice and whole oat flour. Just like their original versions, gluten-free eggo waffles are available in packages of 8 and have a suggested retail of $3.29 per box. While gluten-free, consumers need to keep in mind that eggo waffles contain soy, milk and eggs
AnneMarie Suarez Davis, Vice President of marketing and innovation for Kellogg frozen foods, commented that Kellogg is making sure to not to sacrifice the crispy texture and wholesome flavor of their waffles. “It is crucial for us to avoid the pitfall of some gluten-free items who sacrifice taste and texture when compared to their original versions. Our gluten-free waffles will be as delicious and wholesome as the originals.”
We hope she’s right, because we are definitely excited to get our hands on these!
