Gluten-Free Waffles with Rolled Oats and Olive Oil

Gluten-Free Waffles with Rolled Oats and Olive Oil: Irresistible Recipe

Gluten-Free Waffles with Rolled Oats and Olive Oil top view

Waffles are one of my favorite breakfast foods.  I was looking for something different than what I usually make, which are buttermilk waffles or buttermilk cornmeal waffles.

A while back I saw some video on instagram where someone used their blender to make the oatmeal flour. So thought I could do the same.

I did some research on recipes and ultimately settled on this one from Cookie and Kate. (I made a few adaptations including the olive oil, decreasing the salt, and syrup which you can see in my version below.)

If you are skeptical about olive oil, you really can’t taste it in the final product. So I highly recommend giving it a try, if you haven’t already!

These came out surprisingly crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. You would have never thought they were made of oatmeal. I think the cinnamon may help in disguising the oat flavor, if any.

I was able to come away with 7 full size waffles, just a few leftover to freeze. Next time I will double the recipe, so I have more to eat later!

These waffles also came together pretty quick as I was eating them in less than 30 minutes of starting! But I guess all waffle recipes are relatively quick, which is a good thing!

Thanks for reading!

In case you missed them, here are some of my other breakfast recipes!

Units Scale

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  1. If starting with rolled oats measure and put into blender or food processor to make into a fine powder/flour. (I used my vitamix on high for about 30 seconds)

    In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: milk, eggs, olive oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  4. Allow the batter rest for 15 minutes to allow the oats to absorb some of the water. While waiting you can plug in your waffle maker in to preheat.

  1. I made oat flour in my blender once just for the heck of it, but I had no idea what to do with it haha. These look like a good idea!
