How to make easy gluten free waffles from scratch?
This is one of the easiest breakfast recipes that you will ever make –
Step-1 : Add all ingredients (oats, eggs, milk, liquid coconut oil, baking powder, vanilla extract and salt) into a blender and blend.
Step-2: Make waffles according to the manufacture’s instructions.
Blender – Any blender that you have available will work.
Coconut oil –
If adding room temperature liquid coconut oil (not warm or hot), then proceed onto making waffles right after you blend.
If adding warm liquid coconut oil, then let batter rest for about 10 minutes (this will allow it to thicken) before making waffles.
Butter – Substitute melted and cooled butter instead of coconut oil.
Color – Cook waffles until they get golden brown! It took about 5 minutes in my waffle iron.
Make sure the waffle iron is pre heated before pouring the batter.
Grease the waffle iron – This ensures that the waffles does not stick to the iron. I like to spray mine with non-stick cooking spray.
Can I make this dairy free? Use almond, coconut or oat milk instead of regular milk.
Waffles are best served warm for breakfast with a dab of softened salted butter, warm maple syrup and fresh berries.
Waffle toppings – Other delicious topping suggestions include Chocolate sauce, Nutella, sliced bananas, honey, almond or peanut butter, jelly or sweetened whipped cream.
How to keep waffles warm?
Place cooked oat waffles on a wire rack lined baking sheet and keep in a 200° F oven, until serving time. The wire rack will ensure air circulation around the waffles, maintaining the crispness.
How to freeze leftover Waffles?
I usually make a double batch of this recipe, place cooled waffles in a ziplock bag and freeze for several weeks. My favorite way to re heat them is to pop one or two in a bread toaster, until hot and crisp. Great for weekday mornings!
