Amaris "Amazing waffles. My family has never found out that they’re not full of sugars. My husband tried to complain about me feeding him “bad stuff” because they’re were prefect. I had to show him the recipe. Fluffy and full of flavor. Since we tried them, this is my go to recipe."
Nicole "These are the BEST waffles. They’re our family go-to!"
Usnea "These waffles are amazing!!! I have been on a waffle bender for most of my life and have some serious demands for a good quality waffle. This recipe is great, it is perfect all the way around. Texture and flavor are on point. What a great way to get your fiber in without having to endure a nasty bowl of oatmeal covered in birdseed. I have tried many other recipes that are gf, df and they all come out like cardboard. Thank you for the delicious simplicity!"
I like my waffles to strike the perfect balance: a crisp outer layer and an airy and fluffy interior. These wholesome oatmeal waffles check all the boxes.
Simply toss all the ingredients into a blender, give it a whirl, and your oatmeal waffles batter is ready to go. There's no need for a separate oat flour grinding process! If you don't own a waffle maker? Then try our oat flour pancakes that are soft and fluffy.

Scroll down to the recipe card below for full information on ingredients and amounts.
- Oats - Use rolled or old-fashioned oats for the oatmeal waffles recipe. While I haven't personally tested it, quick-cooking oats might be suitable as well. However, it's important to note that steel-cut oats are too coarse to achieve a smooth grind in the blender, rendering them unsuitable in this recipe.
- Eggs - Eggs provide structure, binding and leavening in all homemade waffle recipes. If you are looking for a recipe without eggs, try our eggless waffles.
- Milk - Milk adds richness, moisture and color in oatmeal waffles.
- Coconut oil - If the coconut oil is solid, gently melt it in the microwave until it's warmed. Ensure it's not too hot before adding it to the blender.
- Baking powder - Adds much-needed lift.
Substitutions and Variations
- Switch up flavorings. Use ground cinnamon or nutmeg instead of vanilla extract in oatmeal waffles.
- Stir in your favorite addins like blueberries or chocolate chips into the oatmeal waffles batter.
- Not a fan of coconut oil? Use melted butter instead.
- Make gluten free oatmeal waffles. Use gluten free certified oats.
- Use almond or oat milk instead of regular milk to make it dairy free.
- Use white granulated sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup or honey instead of brown sugar.
How to make?
You can find full printable recipe below, but here is a quick overview of the procedure along with step-by-step photos.
- Add old fashioned oats, baking powder, brown sugar and salt into a blender.
2. Add milk, eggs and vanilla extract into the blender and blend all ingredients until you get a very smooth batter.
3. Preheat your waffle maker according to manufacture's instructions. Pour a scant ½ cup batter and make oatmeal waffles and cook until golden in color.
Pro tip: Check the oatmeal waffles batter consistency before each batch. Oat's starches are highly absorbent, swell and thicken when exposed to moisture. So, the batter tends to thicken as it sits. Just stir some water to the batter to a thick but pourable consistency before cooking each batch.
How to serve?
Other delicious topping include chocolate sauce, Nutella, sliced bananas, honey, almond or peanut butter, jelly or sweetened whipped cream.
Storage and Reheating
Oatmeal waffles are great frozen. Store leftover cooled waffles in zipper bags for up to 2 months. Use any of the following method to reheat. I like to pop one or two frozen oatmeal waffles into a bread toaster, until heated through.
- I used Vitamix to make these oatmeal waffles. Other home blenders like Nutri bullet, Ninja or Hamilton beach will also work.
- Blend batter until very smooth.
- 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.
- Adjust batter consistency. Oats absorbs moisture and the batter tends to thicken as it sits. Mix in a splash of water if needed to loosen up the batter before each batch.
Place cooked oatmeal 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 their crispness.
Yes, you can generally substitute oil for coconut oil or butter, however it is important to note that both butter and coconut oil adds flavor and richness. If using oil, then use a neutral-flavored oil like canola or vegetable oil to avoid overwhelming the waffle's flavor.
1. Make sure your waffle iron is thoroughly preheated before pouring in the batter. This initial burst of heat helps create a crispy exterior.
2. Cook until the waffles are deep golden in color, so they have enough time to crisp up.
More Oats recipes
- 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.
- Grease waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray. Pour about ⅓ cup batter into each waffle plate and cook according to manufactures instructions until golden. Pro tip: Check the batter consistency before each batch. Oat's starches are highly absorbent, swell and thicken when exposed to moisture. So, the batter tends to thicken as it sits. Just stir some water to the batter to a thick but pourable consistency before cooking each batch.
- Remove waffles onto a plate and repeat with remaining batter.
