Waffles. Bacon. Is there any comfort foods much better? Yes! Waffles and bacon TOGETHER on a stick!! The following is our recipe for gluten-free waffles as well as an answer for dairy-free if you desire. The bacon waffle pop is a fun twist on a traditional waffle. It seems every age loves food on a stick, don’t we? Are you ready for some fun?
DON’T MISS THIS! It’s important to highlight before we go any further – the following recipe for waffles can absolutely be made without bacon. It can be batter for a traditional, delicious waffle just simply on its own.
Alright, back to the bacon. You’ll need to pre-cook your bacon before adding it to the waffle batter. This is the perfect idea to use up those couple extra pieces of bacon sitting as leftovers in your fridge. Ha! But who ever has bacon leftovers.
After you’ve lined up your sticks and bacon, close the lid and your minutes from devouring waffle bacon pops. If you have a square waffle iron you’ll lay your sticks in a line and end up with rectangles/squares not triangles.
Cut your pops with just a knife and cutting board, pour the maple syrup and you’re set! You’ll definitely be the hero of the day with your families.

This gluten-free waffle recipe is incredible. They cook up exactly as you’d expect from a glutenous waffle, maybe even taste better! This recipe can also be adjusted dairy free. Add the bacon and a stick and you’ll have perfection. Pour the syrup and start dipping!
1 1/4 cup CUT flour
1 1/2 cup milk (use almond milk to make diary-free)
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Pre-cooked gluten-free bacon, approximately 8 strips cut in half
16 sticks, either wooden popsicle/kabob sticks or the white ‘candy sticks’
- You can choose to use a mixer and create these waffles or simply a good whisk/fork and a bowl.
Preheat waffle iron.
- Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and mix VERY well to ensure no big lumps.
- Pour batter into waffle iron. (Batter may seem a little thick but feel free to add a bit more milk if you deem necessary.) To make the bacon pops, spread batter thin to cover near the edge of the waffle iron.
- Place a half strip of bacon on each square or triangle depending on the shape of your iron.
- Lay a stick over top of the bacon and then cover ends of sticks in the middle of waffle with another thin layer of batter to hold everything together. (See pics for clarification)
- Bake waffle as usual. If you desire a bit darker waffle, leave to bake longer.
- When finished baking according to your waffle iron, remove and cut into “pops”.
- Pour the syrup and start dipping! Stacey and Meg
Cheers to Bacon Waffle Pops!
