I just made these waffles this morning and they were delicious! The oat flour gave them a nice, chewy texture and they were very filling – the perfect complement to a lazy Saturday morning. 🙂
Generally I’m a big topping fanatic, but these were actually good without anything on them, and they were so easy to make. If you want to make them dairy-free, you can use a milk substitute, such as rice, almond, etc.
I found this recipe at: http://www.girlmakesfood.com/ridiculously-awesome-oat-waffles/
They’re pretty healthy, too, considering that they’re mostly oat, they don’t have any sugar (maple syrup is used as a sweetener) and you can substitute non-dairy milk for regular milk. They also use coconut oil instead of butter, which is a superfood that has countless beneficial properties. You can check out this site for more info on why coconut oil is so good for you.
So, here’s the recipe…
Basically, you just mix together the following ingredients and spoon the batter into your pre-heated waffle iron…then, when ready, top with whipped cream, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, sprinkle them with cinnamon, and drizzle some maple syrup on top! Yum! (Or you could top them with YOUR favourite fruits and toppings…I guess it’s up to you 🙂 )
-1 1/2 cups Oat Flour*
-1 Tbs Baking Powder
-Pinch of Salt
-1 cup Milk – dairy or nondairy (I used dairy, but according to the site I got the recipe from nondairy works well too)
-2 Tbs Maple Syrup (the maple syrup gives the waffles a divinely sweet hint to them)
-2 Tbs Coconut Oil
*I made my own oat flour (the original recipe suggests this as well) by grinding 2 cups of oats in a food processor. I left mine a bit chunkier than regular oat flour because I wanted the added texture, but it would probably be a bit more like regular waffle batter consistency if you were to grind the oats finer. Depends on how much chewing you want to do. 🙂
