Let’s make Mickey Waffles at Home!
Let’s do this!
First up- we need the waffle iron. Now, Mickey Waffle Irons at Disney World are commercial grade and made by golden malted. BUT Disney does have two DIY irons on the market for those of us looking to indulge from home (can we just fedex some waffles? Is that even a thing? I live for the day I can order Mickey Waffles on Uber Eats)
I went ahead and grabbed this larger one, while it is more expensive, I wanted the waffles that they make at Disney (they are smaller and more waffle shaped, less like a pancake!)
SO- we’ve got the iron (and really- sometimes the mix is all you need for some of those delicious gluten free and top 8 safe waffles, so feel empowered using the mixes below to make some regular shaped allergy friendly waffles at home!)
NOW- let’s talk mixes!
My favorite part! Disney uses a variety of mixes. Not every place carries the same mix! Traditional regular mix is by Golden Malted. Next, if you are just gluten free and it’s a lifestyle thing (not an allergy) you can use the mix they carry everywhere in the park- Golden Malted Gluten Free. This is also the one they use for other lifestyle needs like vegan and vegetarian and it is made with soy flour.
The next mix they use that’s common at the resorts especially, is the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour.
Lastly, we’ve got top 8 certified (so gluten free, dairy free, soy free, peanut free, treenut free, fish and shellfish free and egg free) Namaste Waffle Mix.
Technically- there’s a fifth mix. The wonderful chefs at Chef Mickey have created their own allergy friendly mix.
Confused? Let’s break it down.
Certified top 8 = Namaste Mix
Wheat Free = Golden Malted Gluten Free, Bob’s Red Mill, Namaste
Dairy Free = Golden Malted Gluten Free, Bob’s Red Mill, Namaste
Soy Free = Golden Malted, Bob’s Red Mill, Namaste
Egg = all call for egg, but non have egg in the ingredients
Corn = all have corn
Peanut free, treenut free, fish free, shellfish free = Golden Malted, Golden Malted GF, Bob’s Red Mill, Namaste
Waffles? Yes please
I think that’s the thing I totally love about the waffles- for many, it’s a way to feel normal and get to eat what everyone else is eating!
So yeah… you get your waffle iron of choice, you get your mix of choice and then VOILA!
Mickey Waffles in the houuzzzz
Going to Disney World soon and want some waffles?
You can find Namaste and Bob’s Red Mill at the majority of resorts- the Golden Malted Gluten Free is in most common in the Parks.
Breakfast is pretty hard IN the parks with food allergies- so check your resorts for waffles options (especially character breakfasts because many of them don’t have all the options).
