How to make flourless banana oatmeal waffles
These healthier banana oat waffles are so easy to make. You only need 5 simple ingredients, a blender, and a waffle iron. Seriously, a beginner cook or your kids can make them – I promise! This recipe makes 10 fluffy, mini waffles or 3 – 5 moist full sized waffles. It all depends on what size your waffle iron is!
To begin, blend the rolled oats in a high-speed blender or food processor until they are a flour-like consistency. Then, gently shake the blender to loosen up the blended oats.
Next, add in the spotty bananas, almond milk, cinnamon, and baking powder. Blend again for 20 – 30 seconds, until a smooth batter. Transfer into a bowl and let the batter sit for 8 – 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat your waffle maker and grease with nonstick spray. Once hot, pour batter into it and cook until the center is cooked and the edges are crispy. The amount of batter depends on the size of your waffle maker. Repeat this step until you’ve used all your batter.
Top your vegan flourless banana oat waffles with chocolate chips, fruit, banana slices, maybe some shipped cream, and/or maple syrup or honey. Enjoy!
How to store and freeze leftover oatmeal waffles

Store: You can store extras in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Freeze: You can also freeze banana waffles in an airtight ziplock bag for up to 3 months.
Reheat: I reccomened placing the banana waffles on a non-stick pan or in an oven at 350°F until warm. Avoid the microwave because no one likes a soggy waffle.
