Oatmeal Waffles

Healthy Breakfast

Oats are an excellent breakfast food because oats contain no cholesterol. Try this easy recipe and enjoy with some fresh fruit or pure maple syrup. It does cost a little more for pure syrup so I just cut down on the amount of food I eat and eliminated all animal products so I can afford to have the best pure Vermont maple syrup on a healthy waffle or pancake.


Makes 6 waffles

2 cups rolled oats
2 cups water
1 banana
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
vegetable oil spray
fresh fruit, spreadable fruit, or maple syrup for serving


Preheat waffle iron to medium-high.

Combine oats, water, banana, salt, maple syrup, and vanilla in a blender. Blend on high speed until completely smooth. The batter should be pourable. If it becomes too thick as it stands, add a bit more water to achieve desired consistency.

Lightly spray waffle iron with vegetable oil. Read the instructions that came with your waffle iron as mine says do not use spray oils on the iron.

Pour in enough batter to reach edges and cook until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes without lifting lid.

Serve with fresh fruit, spreadable fruit, or maple syrup.

    Awesome!  On my doctors recommendation, I've been eating oatmeal for breakfast every day for the past year and although it's quick, it is getting very boring!  I considered oatmeal bars but they are expensive (or maybe I am just cheap) and they seemed to be very high in sugar.  This seems much healthier and I am thinking I could make them and freeze them.  Thanks Daniel!

    • Thanks for stopping by and Great idea Doug! Make up a batch of oatmeal waffles and have them when you want a nice breakfast treat. I have another waffle recipe using some different ingredients. Recipe makes either Pancakes or Waffles

      1 cup Coconut Flakes
      1 cup Triticale Flakes – Flour
      1 cup Rolled Oats
      1 cup Multigrain Pancake Mix
      1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
      1/2 cup Flax Seed
      1/2 cup Applesauce
      1/2 cup Olive Oil – optional
      1/4 cup Honey or Pure Maple Syrup
      1 Banana mashed – Optional – ripe is best

      Mix all ingredients with water or soy milk until a lightly stiff consistency and then put in your waffle iron or skillet. Enjoy with pure maple syrup and either blueberries or strawberries.

    Hello Daniel! Thank you for both waffles and pancakes recipes. I'm sure it's going to perfect waffles for every spot time. More recipe means that i'll never get bored of the same waffles again.

  • Sounds delicious and so much healthier than store brand waffles.  I'm looking forward to trying them.  I bet you could even take that recipe and make drop cookies with it ! 

    • Making a batch and freezing them sounds like a plan. Thanks for stopping by Barbara!

  • Great timing! This is very perfect to my health diet plan Daniel. I'll definitely make one of this. I'm hoping that it would taste delicious like you mentioned. Thanks a lot!
