  • Easy Preparation: The batter comes together quickly, with a short resting period to enhance texture.
  • Customizable: Easily adaptable for vegan or dairy-free diets.


Kitchen Equipment You’ll Need

To make these waffles, ensure you have:


  • Waffle Iron
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Whisk Or Mixing Spoon
  • Measuring Cups And Spoons
  • Blender Or Food Processor (if making oat flour from scratch)




  • 1 ½ cups (128 grams) oat flour (certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • ¾ cup room temperature milk of choice (light coconut milk, nut milk, cow’s milk)
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil or 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract




  1. Prepare Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, whisk together oat flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon (if using).
  2. Combine Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together milk, melted coconut oil or butter, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. If using coconut oil, warm the mixture slightly if it solidifies upon contact with cold ingredients.
  3. Mix Batter: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes to allow the oat flour to absorb moisture.
  4. Preheat Waffle Iron: While the batter rests, preheat your waffle iron. Set it to medium-high heat for optimal crispiness.
  5. Cook Waffles: After resting, give the batter a final stir and pour onto the heated waffle iron. Cook until golden and crisp.
  6. Serve: Transfer waffles to a rack or baking sheet to maintain crispness. Avoid stacking to preserve texture.


Storage and Serving Suggestions


  • Leftovers: These waffles freeze beautifully. Store in freezer-safe bags and reheat in a toaster for a quick breakfast.
  • Pairings: Serve with maple syrup, fresh fruits, yogurt, or nut butter for added flavor and nutrition.


Recipe Variations


  • Egg-Free: Omit eggs for a slightly lighter texture. The waffles will still turn out delicious.
  • Dairy-Free: Use non-dairy milk and coconut oil for a dairy-free option.
  • Vegan: Combine non-dairy milk and coconut oil while omitting eggs for a vegan-friendly version.
