aaaah happy wednesday!! it’s a good day for waffles, especially ones that are fluffy like clouds and taste out of this world. please welcome upbeetandkaleingit’s very first waffle recipe on the blog, Healthy Vegan Oat Flour Waffles. they’re beyond easy to make, not too sweet but sweet enough and good for the body + soul.
who loves a good waffle?! this waffle recipe has finally been perfected and i’m v thrilled for you all to make them!
they’re lightly sweetened with 1/4 cup coconut sugar and you can taste a hint of cinnamon. oat flour is excellent for making fluffy waffles and i don’t have a sub rec, because this is the only way i have tried the recipe :).
as you can see, i kept the waffles plain, but you could totally add some chocolate chips or blueberries. anything goes really and waffles are super versatile.
while i think they’re good enough to eat plain, there’s nothing like some sliced bananas, vegan butter and a generous serving of maple syrup (insert heart eyes emoji).
there are a couple of key ingredients here to produce ultra cloud-like waffles. first, you’re going to need a runny nut butter and i recommend almond butter for a mild taste.
you could use any nut or seed butter but bear in mind peanut butter could be a little overpowering in taste, which isn’t a bad thing because peanut butter is flippin’ amazing.
also, extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil is v important for the texture. you can use either and liquid coconut oil could probably work well too.
minimal ingredients are needed for Healthy Vegan Oat Flour Waffles:
- oat flour
- baking powder
- coconut sugar
- almond butter
- extra virgin olive oil
- vanilla extract
- almond milk
isn’t that incredible? with only 8 ingredients that are all amazing, you can have the perfect waffle.
my recipe will yield 4 medium-large waffles and you can always double the batch if you’re making this for a larger group of people. with the right toppings, i think one is pretty filling!
oat flour is the best and always leaves me feeling satisfied. if you do want to store the waffles, they should be good in the fridge for a couple of days.
however, i would recommend storing them in the freezer instead and reheating to preserve the texture. the fridge can make them a bit soggy!
in terms of a waffle maker, i have one that actually tells me when the waffles are done, so keep as eye on yours if your waffle maker isn’t automatic.
the waffle maker i have is cuisinart and i got it on amazon! it’s linked here. oooooh and guess what?! it’s on sale, so grab one while ya can.
