These light, fluffy, and incredibly delicious Oatmeal Waffles will satisfy your waffle cravings and fuel your day. They are nutritious, made with HEALTHY ingredients without refined sugars - a great family breakfast option!
Prepare and measure all ingredients using measuring cups.
Place the wet ingredients in the blender first: egg, milk, vanilla, and coconut oil. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Blend on high for a few minutes, until ingredients combine.
Leave the batter to rest for a minute in a blender, for oats to soak the moisture and batter become dense. If the batter seems still too runny, add a little more oats and blend again.
Heath up the waffle maker until it's completely HOT (the green light must be on). Grease the waffle maker with coconut oil cooking spray or melted coconut oil using the brush.
Pour the batter onto the hot waffle maker to cover the plates. Close the lid and cook (8-10 minutes, depending on waffle maker). Allow waffles to cook completely before removing and repeating the process for the rest of the batter.
Remove cooked waffles from the waffle maker and place it on a cooling rack. Let them cool to room temperature. Freshly cooked waffles will be soft when you take them out of the waffle maker but they will harden as they cool on the rack.
Serve topped with maple syrup, bananas, and fresh blueberries.
You can use quick oats or rolled oats here.
You can swap oat milk for almond milk or organic soy milk. Cow's milk works fine here too. Coconut milk won’t work well here.
You can substitute coconut oil with avocado oil.
You can substitute maple syrup with honey. Date syrup won't work well here.
