Who doesn’t love a brunch full of a plate of fluffy waffles??  I know I do.  These oat flour waffles are nice and fluffy, super easy to make because we just throw everything in our blender, and they are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free so most anyone can enjoy them!  I highly recommend trying some nut butter on top, and feel free to add in berries or chocolate chips if you are feeling crazy!

Ingredients You’ll Need for Oat Flour Waffles:

  • Oats – duh!  We make our own oat flour because it is SO easy and such a cheap gluten free alternative (make sure your oats are certified gluten free!)
  • Baking powder – helps us get some lift for fluffy waffles!
  • Salt – adds a depth of flavor
  • Cinnamon – the perfect way to give these a little extra flavor without being overpowering so they are still the perfect palate for any add in!
  • Apple sauce – I like using apple sauce in place of oil.  We still use a little, but it makes these lighter and adds some good texture!
  • Non dairy milk – for moisture! I have used cashew and almond milk but any type should do the trick for ya.
  • Eggs 
  • Apple cider vinegar – helps activate the baking powder so we get fluffy waffles
  • Coconut oil – gives our oat waffles a little healthy fat and ensures we get that crisp outside.
  • Maple syrup – adds a little sweetness to our waffles without refined sugar.

Health Benefits of Oats

Oats are a highly nutritious food that offers a wide range of health benefits. They’re a whole grain so they’re rich in nutrients like fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. Oats are particularly good for heart health, as they contain a type of soluble fiber that can help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. They can also help regulate digestion, promote weight loss, and may even lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. That’s why they’re perfect for these tasty waffles!

What is Oat Flour?

Oat flour is simply ground oats. You can buy oat flour in the store or even on Amazon. Bob’s Red Mill and Arrowhead Mills are two popular brands. It’s often sold near the gluten-free flour. But don’t worry about making a trip to the store. You can make oat flour at home with rolled oats or quick cooking oats. Follow the instructions below!

How to Make Oat Flour

It’s easy to make oat flour from rolled oats or quick oats! Just add them to a blender or food processor and blend until finely ground. If you’re blending them in a blender, you may need to stop the blender and stir it a few times to make sure the oats are evenly blended.

Tips for Perfect Oat Flour Waffles

Here are some tips so you get the perfect waffles the first time:

  • Let your coconut oil cool – just a little.  You just don’t want to pour super hot oil into the mixture because then it could start cooking your eggs. If you don’t have coconut oil, you can use melted butter.
  • Can I make these into oat flour pancakes?  Of course! Just cook on the stove top instead of a waffle maker. They’re pretty thick pancakes, so they’ll need to cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side over medium heat.
  • What to add?  These are great by themselves but I also made them super basic so you can add any of your favorite ingredients! I always suggest chocolate chips 😛 but blueberries, sprinkles, anything you love would be great!
