These healthy banana oat waffles are gluten-free, nut-free, fluffy, and the sweetest gluten-free waffles you will ever make! If you have some overripe bananas and old-fashioned oats, let’s make some sweet banana oatmeal waffles. If you like bananas and oats separately, you would like even these banana oat waffles the more! These waffles are gluten-free and freezer-friendly.
- 3 small/medium Bananas (or two big ones)
- 3 cups of Oats (ground; I usually use old-fashioned oats).
- 2 Eggs
- 1 cup of Milk
- 3 tablespoons of organic pure cane sugar or coconut sugar or Monkfruit a no-calorie , zero carb sweetener.
- 1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
- 3 teaspoons of Baking powder
- ¼ – 1/3 cup of butter or coconut oil.
- ¼ – 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- ¼ teaspoon Ground cinnamon (optional)
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg (optional; I love the smell of nutmeg)
- Turn on your clean waffle maker to warm up and get ingredients ready.
- Get a large bowl and add all the dry ingredients (ground old-fashioned oats or oat flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.) Tailor the salt to suit your health need. If you are using salted butter, then be sure to use less salt.
- Peel and cut 3 small to medium size bananas. If you are using big bananas, please use only 2.
- Add the Bananas into the blender. Also, add all the liquid ingredients (milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and melted butter), blend at high speed for less than a minute.
- Pour the blended wet ingredients into the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Use a wooden or silicone spatula to combine.
- This dough may seem light immediately after mixing. Allow it to sit/rest for 10 minutes (or less) before using. This way, it thickens and makes the perfect banana oat waffles!
- Use a cooking spoon (or ice cream scoop) to scoop the mixture into the waffle maker as it should be green and ready by now. Cover/lock the waffle maker and allow it the required time to cook.
- As soon as the light on your waffle maker goes from red to green, then your sweet banana oat waffle is ready. Enjoy more fresh bananas, blueberries, strawberries (or any other fruits) and or syrup.
Best to make your own oat flour (or buy pure oat flour with oat been the only ingredient).
You can substitute old-fashioned oats with minutes flour but you may need to add more, honestly, I don’t know if you will get the same result.
Substitute pure cane sugar with organic coconut sugar, alternatively use Monkfruit, a no-calorie, zero carb sweetener. I find this sweetener to not have an aftertaste, unlike most sweeteners. (Remember if you choose to use monfruit, the caloric and carb content of this recipe will reduce)!
This waffle would be a little lighter than most of the waffles you make; please be cautious while removing it from the waffle maker to avoid tearing it apart.☺️
The number of waffles you make will typically depend on the type of waffle maker you use.
I would usually make two and a half sets using a big Belgian waffle maker, which amounts to 12 waffles pieces. You would make more waffles if you use small waffle maker.
There are many varieties of waffle makers out there in the market. Not even a joke!
