Oat Flour Waffles made with just one flour–oat flour–and a few pantry staples! They’re hearty, great for meal prep!
Though I am a big lover of savory breakfast items, waffles hold a special place in my heart. This recipe is completely gluten-free (when you use gluten-free oats) and it’s easy to make ahead and freeze the waffles for a quick weekday breakfast. This recipe also calls for cornstarch which helps make the waffles crispier. You can leave it out if you don’t have any. Now let’s make these oat flour waffles, shall we?
Oat Flour Waffles
- Oat flour
- Baking powder
- Cinnamon (optional)
- Oil (I use canola or coconut oil)
If you don’t have oat flour, fear not! If you have plain, rolled oats in the cupboard you can just make your own. Place oats in a blender or food processor and blend until finely ground. Easy! Cornstarch can be skipped but it really helps the waffles to have a crispier exterior, so I definitely recommend it.
How to make waffles with oat flour
In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients: oat flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon with a whisk.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vinegar, vanilla and oil until combined.
Add the wet ingredient mixture to the dry mixture and whisk until combined. Fun fact: you don’t have to worry about over mixing gluten-free batters!
Heat your waffle iron
I always use my mini waffle iron (affiliate link) I got on Amazon. It’s small and gets the job done. It will give you a waffle that is about the size of a standard frozen waffle you buy at the grocery store. The only downside is you can only make one waffle at a time. But I love it for its compact nature, affordability and simplicity. Just plug it in, let it heat up and you’re good to go. Plus it makes a great gift!
How to freeze & reheat
I almost never make these the day I plan to eat them. I’m a little too impatient at breakfast time to get through making a whole batch of waffles before eating. So I typically will make these on Saturday or Sunday afternoon and freeze them so I can enjoy a quick breakfast during the week.
To freeze the waffles, place them on a baking rack as they finish cooking. Allow them to cool fully before placing them in a plastic freezer bag and popping them in the freezer.
To reheat, just place waffles in the toaster and cook until heated through.
If you plan on serving these waffles the day you make them, heat your oven to 200F and place waffles on a baking sheet in the oven to keep waffles warm while you cook.
