But this recipe is so easy using a Vitamix Blender, and works so well, that you will be happy making them any day of the week.
Top them with maple syrup, date syrup, nut butters like peanut butter or almond butter, fresh fruit, warm apple sauce, fresh fruit or my Easy Blueberry Sauce. You might also enjoy the gluten free Pumpkin Oat Waffle recipe.

Waffles aren’t just for breakfast – they make a wonderful dessert as well. Spoon blueberry sauce over the waffle, top with sliced bananas, fresh strawberries, unsweetened coconut and dust with ground cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg.
Using high quality spices in your recipes makes for even more flavorful food. I love the purchasing my spices from Local Spicery because they are milled in small quantities so they are always super fresh! This cinnamon is so naturally sweet you will think it has sugar added but it doesn’t!
I use heat level 4 on my Cuisinart waffle maker. When you make them without using oil be sure to preheat the waffle iron, put the batter on and then shut the lid. Don’t peek too soon because if you do, the waffle will split apart, sticking to the top and bottom. It takes 9 minutes in my waffle iron. You will need to experiment with your waffle maker and see what the perfect heat setting and time will be.
I use a fork to gently ease them out of the waffle iron.
The recipe makes a big batch that will feed the family. You can even make them in advance and freeze them for future meals.
Miss having an ice cream filled waffle cone? These could be topped with a scoop of banana nice cream made in the Ninja CREAMi and then garnished with fresh fruit. Yum!
I make a couple batches at a time and let them cool on racks. Once cool I put them in freezer bags.You can take one out at a time and put it in a toaster or toaster oven and crisp them up.
If you want to feed a crowd waffles you can make them in advance, and heat them up in a toaster oven. Or as you make waffles fresh put them on a cooking rack set over a baking sheet and keep it in an oven set to 200 degrees. This will keep them warm until you are ready to serve.
Make a large batch of my Blueberry Sauce to serve a crowd. Keep it warm in a slow cooker or a small Instant Pot.
When Ordering JOI Plant Milk Bases Use Discount Code NUTMEG
- 4 cups rolled oats, divided
- 1 cup buckwheat flour, millet flour or use all oat flour
- 2 1/4 cups plant milk, unsweetened add the apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar add to the plant milk
- 2 tbsp Ground flax seeds
- 2 Bananas, very ripe, peeled
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla powder – or vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- In a jar or bowl, add the vinegar and ground flax meal to the plant milk, stirring to combine. Set aside.
- In the container of a high powered blender add just 3 cups of rolled oats (set the remaining cup of oats aside) process until the oats turn into a flour. Empty into a bowl and set aside.
- In the same blender container, add the plant milk, apple cider vinegar mixture, peeled bananas, blend until smooth and creamy.
- Add the ground oats, buckwheat flour, vanilla powder, cinnamon and nutmeg to the blender. Process until well combined, use the tamper to help it blend. When well blended stir in the remaining 1 cup of rolled oats. This adds a nice rustic look and texture. Add more plant milk if needed.
- Preheat a non stick waffle iron according to the manufactures instructions. For my waffle iron I set it on level 4. When the waffle iron is ready, spoon batter onto it and spread out the batter evenly. Close the lid and don't peek for 8 – 9 minutes. 9 minutes seems to work perfectly for my Cuisinart Begian Waffle Maker. Check the waffles, remove if they look like they are browned and cooked all the way through. Put on a cooking rack. Repeat with remaining batter.
- The batter gets thicker as it sits, if it gets to thick add 2-4 tablespoons of plant milk and give it a stir.
- Serve with maple syrup, date syrup, nut butter, cooked apples, blueberry sauce, warm applesauce, or fresh fruit, a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut and a dusting of cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg.
