Ingredients for this Vegan Oatmeal Waffle Recipe

  • Rolled Oats – I used my own oats to make the oat flour (takes just 1-2 minutes in a blender!) or you can use store-bought oat flour too. Use certified gluten free oats to make this a gluten-free waffle recipe.
  • Almond milk, or non-dairy milk of choice like coconut milk or even oat milk
  • Melted Coconut Oil – or substitute vegetable oil or olive oil.
  • Pure Maple Syrup – I used maple syrup in these waffles for a little added natural sweetness!
  • Ground Flaxseeds, also known as flaxseed meal
  • Pure vanilla extract, not baking vanilla
  • Baking Powder
  • Sea Salt

Topping Ideas for Waffles

​Enjoy these waffles as-is, or mix it up with one of these great topping ideas!

  • ​Fresh fruit: fresh berries, 
  • Top with vegan butter or dairy free whipped cream
  • Add vegan chocolate chips or white chocolate chips!
  • Top with almond butter for a high protein breakfast option.

Equipment Needed to Make Oat Waffles

This is a pretty foolproof recipe, and it only takes a few minutes to prep!  First of all, get your oats ready. I used sprouted rolled oats for this recipe, as the rolled oats worked better than instant oatmeal. There is no need to separate the wet ingredients and dry ingredients, the waffle batter can be mixed all together in a large bowl.

You’ll also need your waffle maker out!  I used a Belgian waffle maker for deep delicious pockets in my waffles. The waffle maker got these waffles super crisp on the outside and warm and chewy in the middle. 

If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can use this batter to make pancakes! A reader commented they do this all the time, and the pancakes turn out great.

How to Make This Oat Flour Waffle Recipe

  1. Make the Oat Flour: add the rolled oats directly into a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend or process for 2 minutes until the oats have transformed into a fine flour.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the oats, almond milk, coconut oil, maple syrup. In a separate dish mix the flaxseeds with an equal amount of water and allow that to sit for 1 minute. Add the flax mixture to the bowl along with the vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to combine.
  3. Turn on your waffle maker, and set it to a medium-to-high setting (I used a 4 out of 5 on mine). Pour the appropriate amount of batter into the waffle maker, and cook until your machine lets you know the waffles are ready. These crispy oat flour waffles should be golden brown and have crispy edges.
  4. Serve immediately, and top with a drizzle of maple syrup and your favorite fruit, enjoy!

    My kids LOVE these! I make them as pancakes instead of waffles because it’s easier for me to make large quantities at a time. I made a few modifications with what I had in the pantry and still delicious: we’re not vegan and I didn’t have coconut oil, so I replaced it with 2T butter, used Egg Replacer instead of flax, and added chocolate chips. Great alternative to stuff you find in the freezer section 🙂
