Expert tips:

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.

Serving suggestions:

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!

If you like banana, then try this oatmeal blender waffles with banana.

Switch up flavorings – Use ground cinnamon and/or nutmeg instead of vanilla extract.

Stir in blueberries or chocolate chips into the batter.

Use melted butter instead of coconut oil.

  • Add all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth (it took about 3 minutes in my blender). Let batter rest while you preheat waffle iron (this helps the batter to thicken slightly).

    Remove waffles onto a plate and repeat with remaining batter.

Great texture and I love how I can just put it all in my blender - but right after making first batch I realized something wasn’t right - no sugar in recipe! Not sure if this was a goof up so wanted to leave a comment to point it out. I topped them with coconut sugar though and they taste good now :) I’ll make again but just with a little coconut sugar inside next time - thanks for the recipe!

Hi Emily, Glad you loved the waffles. It is not a mistake, there is really no sugar in the recipe! These are created as a super healthy waffle recipe, however waffles are generally enjoyed with maple syrup which takes care of the sweetness. Thanks for the feedback, Maria

These are so good!!! I made A double batch and froze them for meal prepped breakfast! I eat Oat meal every day and this was a great change up! I added A bit of honey to sweeten it a bit too.

Do you have the nutrition information for these?

Love these Waffles. I’ve made them every Sunday since I found the recipe over a month ago!

My daughter has Celiac and cannot eat Oats ether do you have a substitute suggestion fir the oats?

Also wonder if I can reduce the oil a little or substitute a portion of it with another fat source sat 1/4 cut butter plus 1/4 cup of coconut oil. I’m finding the coconut oil flavour comes through a little more than I need.

Hi Anna, Glad to know that you love these waffles.

I'm so sorry that these waffles are not tested with other grain flours. All other waffle recipes in our website, also include wheat/oat flours. Sincere apologies for that!

Regarding the oil, this recipe for healthier waffles -, is very similar but without using any addition of oil/butter.

Hope it helps, Maria
