Blueberry Oatmeal Waffles

Print Friendly

So I got this waffle iron about a month ago.  My first few attempts at waffles were epic fails.  Today I finally came out with a winning recipe!

Blueberry Waffles

I got some organic blueberries from Sprouts yesterday and they were so good!  Blueberries are on the “dirty list, so I only buy them organic and in season.  I haven’t had them in months.  When I saw them sitting there, I had to snatch up a couple pints.  So glad I did because they were sweet and juicy!  We got some yummy strawberries too.  So good!  Waffles and pancakes are super easy to whip up fast.  I actually mix the dry ingredients the night before, so it takes just a minute or two to add the wet in the morning.  My daughter made a happy plate, as we like to call it around here.  She loved them!  If you don’t have a waffle iron, try one of my Homemade Granola Recipes or my Peanut Butter Pancakes for your Sunday morning breakfast.

Blueberry Oatmeal Waffles

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 T maple syrup
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 1 egg (I used a flax egg replacer)
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup blueberries (I used fresh)

Instructions

  • Preheat the waffle iron.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in one bowl.
  • Mix wet in another.
  • Add wet to dry and mix well.
  • Fold in blueberries.
  • Spray the waffle iron with oil before spooning batter on each time.
  • I used a 1/2 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the waffle iron.

I got 4 large waffles out of my batch. If you have leftovers, you can freeze them in a plastic container with parchment in between each waffle.

  1. I’ve noticed you use a lot of different types of flour. Which one would you say is the most comparable to all purpose flour in taste. I was also wondering if I could grind down rolled oats to make my own oat flour?

    1. You sure cold grind them down. That’s what I did to make these. I vary in types of flour based on whatever I have on hand at the time. Oat is kind of close to all purpose flour. White whole wheat is as well.

    1. It may work with just oat, but since oat has no gluten, you may need to add something else in as a binding agent. Maybe a bit of smashed banana or if you have xanthan gum? Dairy milk will work fine too.

    1. You can use flax as an egg substitute. 1 T flax meal + 3 T warm water. Whisk it together and place in the fridge for a minute. The texture will become gummy, like an egg. I use flax because I am vegan, but if you eat eggs, a real egg would be fine too. :)

  2. Ok, I saw these the other day, they immediately caught my attention. Love the healthy ingredients. Made them for this morning’s Sunday breakfast, and they were delicious. I had to make some slight modifications due to a lack of oat flour (which I thought I had), substituted with a mix of kamut, barley and quinoa and used buttermilk as I didn’t have quite enough almond milk. Thank you for a great recipe :) I will be making these again for sure.

  3. These look great! When I make extra waffles I put them on a cooling rack and stick them in the freezer to freeze first. After they are frozen then they go into a container. Then you don’t waste parchment :)

  4. I made these this morning and they are fantastic! I normally don’t like healthy waffles but so far everything I made from your blog has so much tasty flavor. So glad I found you!! What kind of oil do you use as your “pam”?

    1. Great! I am glad you found me too. :) I have a Mr Misto sprayer that I fill with a healthy oil. Sometimes it’s walnut and sometimes it is grapeseed oil. I haven’t tried coconut oil, but I have a feeling it may not work well.

  5. I would really like to make these this weekend for breakfast one day, but I don’t have any oat flour and really don’t want to go out and buy another kind of flour (my freezer is getting full from them). When I grind up oats in my ninja blender, they definitely aren’t as fine as flour, more like crushed up bits. Is that okay, or should I just substitute white whole wheat flour? I also have brown rice flour if that would be better…

  6. These are delicious! The oats make them hearty and satisfying. I ground my oat flour in big batches in the food processor and keept it handy. I substituted olive oil for coconut, left out the shredded coconut and blueberries (didn’t have any), added cinnamon and chocolate chips. Didn’t even need maple syrup on top :)

  7. I used whole wheat flour, mine didn’t seal In the waffle maker? They just fell apart… I’m sure my twins will eat them anyway but would love to figure out why. Thanks.!!

  8. They waffles were so good! My six year old didn’t really like the unsweetened coconut though. Next time, I am going to make her a separate batch without the coconut. Do I need to add more flour or anything because of eliminating the coconut? I thought that they had such good flavor that I didn’t even add extra syrup on top. :-)

  9. Hi Melissa,

    Just made these this morning and they were delicious. My roommate and son both loved them. And they were so simple! Thanks for sharing. I haven’t made a recipe yet off this blog that I didn’t love :)

  10. What should i substitute for the spelt flour? I have almond flour, coconut flour, and GF all purpose rice flour blend.

  11. I made these waffles the other night and I’m pretty sure they are the best waffles I’ve ever had! Thank you so much for the recipe!
