Hearty Oatmeal Waffles are a wonderful start to your weekend. This waffle batter is simple to mix up with ingredients you probably have in the house. You’ll love the flavor and texture of these delicious waffles.
I’ve started a bit of a tradition in our home of making a big, special breakfast on Saturday mornings. We often make pancakes or waffles from scratch.
My toddler asks for either pancakes or waffles almost every day for breakfast. I like to try to make healthier versions from scratch on the weekend and freeze them for easy breakfasts throughout the week.
These waffles are made with oats mixed right into the batter. It gives them such a wonderful flavor and texture! They are sweetened with just a tiny bit of brown sugar. I’ve given you some ideas for making them sugar free, dairy free and/or gluten free below as well.
I first made these waffles back when I started blogging almost 6 years ago. It was so fun to make them again with my toddler! It had been quite awhile since I made them and now I’m excited to add them back into the regular weekend breakfast rotation.
How to Make these Oatmeal Waffles Sugar Free
These waffles are sweetened with just 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. But if you would rather make them without refined sugar, you can substitute with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey instead.
How to Make these Oatmeal Waffles Dairy Free
Making these waffles dairy free is easy. Use almond milk instead of regular milk and use your favorite butter substitute instead of butter.
How to Make these Oatmeal Waffles Gluten Free
Make sure that you are using gluten free oats. Instead of the wheat flour you can use your favorite gluten free flour or oat flour. Make oat flour by placing old fashioned oats in the blender and blending into a flour. I’ve also made these with a blend of oat flour and wheat flour just to cut back on the amount of wheat.
