These are the quintessential allergy-friendly oat waffles. They contain none of the top allergens and are gluten-free! Do I smell breakfast for all?!
Waffles always seemed like such a complicated thing to make. This is probably because we used a labour-intensive recipe when I was a kid. It involved separating the eggs, whipping the whites, gently folding them back in, melting butter, and the list went on.
Let me tell you a secret. Waffles don’t need to be more complicated than three ingredients! Inspired by our Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles, the goal was to make waffles that are 100% allergy-friendly, gluten-free (need to use certified oats), and not contain any coconut oil.
It worked! And you know what, these are made with simple ingredients that won’t break the bank. All you need is oats, olive oil and apple sauce. Bing, bang, boom, stir together, put some dough in the waffle maker and that’s that!
Oat waffles need oat flour
There is one kind of special ingredient in these waffles, oat flour. You can purchase oat flour, but if you have a good blender or food processor, you can make your own.
To make oat flour:
- Place your oats in blender or food processor
- Blend until it looks like the flour consistency you desire
- You may want to stop and start a few times to check with the texture, or to make sure no oats are stuck in corners if you have a square blender
Oat Waffles for days
Well not really. This recipe makes four waffles, but you can double, triple, sextuple the recipe. These waffles are on the firmer side meaning they don’t get soggy, so they are perfect for making ahead for a crowd or freezing.
They also freeze perfectly!. It never hurts to make a few extra you never know when you may feel like a waffle!
