the BEST gluten free waffles!

WAFFLES! Gosh, my family truly loves waffles and these gluten-free oat waffles are a weekly request (I usually make a batch at least twice per week!).  The best part is that they are made solely with oats! Well, oat flour that is, which is basically oats ground up to a super fine flour consistency.  In fact, I make a batch of oat flour weekly in my Vitamix and it take less than a minute to grind up!  These waffles are rich in fiber, protein and other nutrients-making them a filling and nutritious breakfast for my little guys.  Plus, there is no added sugar! and if you ask me, Mickey never looked so good 🙂  We switch off between our belgian waffle maker and this cute Mickey one and the kids gobble them up either way.

my 5-year old loves his waffles with a few mini chocolate chips and I recently bought cocoa nibs and wondering why I didn’t buy them sooner!  Have you ever tried these gems?  Cocoa nibs are basically a raw, pure form of chocolate that hasn’t had any sugar added to it.  So they have a chocolatey flavor but lack sweetness.  Although my boys aren’t so keen on these nibs, they have become my favorite addition to some foods and love that that it contains 0g of sugar! They add a nice flavor and crunch to foods like these waffles and make a healthy addition (in moderation) to smoothie bowls, trail mixes or even in cooking and baking!

Hope you enjoy this waffle recipe below as much as we do!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/3 cup finely ground flaxseed
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil (or unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Whisk eggs with milk.
  3. Add applesauce, vanilla and coconut oil. (If your coconut oil solidifies on contact with cold ingredients, gently heat the wet mixture in the microwave in ten seconds intervals, until it melts again.)
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined.
  5. Let the batter sit for about 5 minutes to thicken.
  6. In the meantime, set waffle maker to medium-high (but all waffle makers are different, this Mickey waffle maker has no setting but comes out perfect each time! so always check and adjust the heat as needed.
  7. Pour batter onto the heated waffle iron, enough to cover the center and most of the central surface area, and close the lid. Once the waffle is deeply golden and crisp, transfer it to a cooling rack or baking sheet. Don’t stack your waffles on top of each other, or they’ll lose crispness. If desired, keep your waffles warm by placing them in a 200 degree oven until you’re ready to serve.
  8. Repeat with remaining batter.
