These have a wonderful taste! Very cheap to make, an excellent replacement for frozen store bought waffles. Time to refrigerate is not included in prep time. You can freeze any extras if you like. To spray olive oil we have a small bottle that you fill with olive oil and pump, you can find them at a kitchen supply store for around $10. 05-07-07 Due to the fact that a lot of people are allergic to wheat, I have changed this recipe. To make original recipe just add 1/4 cup wheat flour.
- 4 cups oatmeal (rolled oats)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (yes you need both, not a typo)
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 4 cups almond milk or 4 cups rice milk or 4 cups soymilk
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh strawberries (can use any berry you like) or 1 cup frozen strawberries (can use any berry you like)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Add oatmeal to blender and blend until a fine flour.
- In a large bowl, mix all dry waffle ingredients.
- In a blender, mix all wet waffle ingredients until smooth.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well.
- Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturers directions.
- Spray waffle iron with olive oil.
- Pour 1/3 cup mix on each side of iron, use more or less if needed.
- Cook for 5-6 minutes, adjust cooking time if needed.
- Repeat until mix is used up.
- Heat berries and honey in pan until hot.
- Pour into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Serve on top of waffles.
I'm rating this 5 stars when prepared as pancakes. I made the batter the night before, as specified, and followed the directions exactly. Ground my oats up in a coffee grinder as my blender recently bit the dust. The coffee grinder worked perfectly! Used my homemade Almond Milk. The batter seemed really, really thin. But by the next morning it had thickened up nicely. Waffles were a total flop. Not sure whether to blame my waffle maker or the recipe, but the waffles just didn't hold together well. So we made them as pancakes instead, which worked great! Served with the strawberry syrup (using frozen organic strawberries I had on hand) as well as some leftover organic Raspberry syrup I had made a few days prior. These were delicious!!! Will definitely be making these again - as pancakes. Love that they're made the night before so all I have to do is throw them on the griddle in the morning and breakfast is served!
I first tried this as a pancake; I don't recommend that. So I thought it would only be fair to try it as a waffle before I wrote a review. I suggest adding some salt and be aware that this batter takes far longer than normal to bake. I had much better luck after putting the batter through the food processor and breaking up the large oat grains. If I were to try this again I would process the rolled ots to make an oat flour before making the batter.
