Introduction: Gluten Free Ice Cream Cones

Picture of Gluten Free Ice Cream Cones

2 large egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup oat flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 TB melted butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract

Preheat your griddle to 400 degrees.   Blend all ingredients in a blender until well combined.  Spoon a scoop of batter onto your griddle to make a 6 inch (flat) circle (start with just one at a time until you get good at it).   Cook until edges are golden (about 5 minutes), and flip to cook the second side (about 2-3 minutes).   Remove from griddle to a cooling rack.   Quickly form the circle into a cone shape, pinching the bottom point so that ice cream won't drip out.  You can either hold it for 10-20 seconds until it cools, or place it in a funnel (in a cup) to cool.   See photos above.  Serve these the same day you make them.

Notes:   My son doesn't normally eat dessert and doesn't even like ice cream yet, but I know the day will come when he wants an ice cream cone.  I created these because I never want him to feel left out when all of his friends are eating ice cream cones!  I know they sell them in stores, but these are so much better tasting and much fresher.  For those paying close attention, YES this is the exact same batter as my fortune cookie recipe.....these are just bigger and a different shape :)

NOTE: while Oat doesn't have gluten, it does have Avenin, a protein that might trigger strong reactions on some celiac people as myself.

Also, keep in mind that most oat brands CAN have gluten in it, since mills and packaging factories are also used for other grains, thus increasing the risk of cross-contamination. Please use only oatmeals that have been certified gluten-free, such as Bob's Red Mill.

Here's a list of other certified brands:

Please make a video im having trouble with thie shaping it seems to be too thin

Can you please elaborate? Are you having trouble getting it into a cone shape because its too stiff? If so you are letting it cool too long before shaping. Are you having trouble getting it to stay together in the cone shape? If so you need to hold it together in your fingers for longer to let it really set. Also, pinching the bottom upwards (to seal and prevent from dripping ice cream) will help the sides to stay together more. Make sure you are starting with just one at a time....
