  • How to make

1 waffle maker

180g oats (gluten free if desired)
470mls water
1 tbsp maple syrup / honey (optional - makes the waffles more golden)
A little vegetable or coconut oil for greasing the waffle plates

To serve:

Greek or non-dairy yogurt (for a vegan option)
Fresh seasonal fruit
Drizzle of maple syrup or honey (optional)

Step 1

Place the oats into a blender and pour over the water. It should only just cover the oats. Add maple syrup or honey (if using) and blend until smooth

Step 2

Now allow the mixture to stand for about 10 minutes - it's very important to achieve the right consistency! The oats will absorb the water and swell, so the mixture will become thicker. You want it to be about the consistency of porridge and you should be able to pour it very slowly out of the blender jug onto the waffle plates. If it doesn't ""creep"" then it’s too thick and if it ""runs"" then it's too thin. If too thin try leaving a little longer, and if becomes too thick you can blend in a tiny drop more water

Step 3

Whilst the mixture is thickening, brush just a little oil on to the waffle plates and then turn on and allow to heat up (follow your waffle maker instructions)

Step 4

Once hot, spoon some mixture onto the plates, avoiding the edges where it will spread out to whilst cooking. Close the lid, and cook for approximately 7 minutes – this may be trial and error with your own waffle maker

Step 5

The waffles should be a little crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside when done

Step 6

Carefully use a rubber spatula to remove then serve immediately with yogurt, seasonal fruit and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup (if using)

Recipe notes

These waffles can also be cut up into waffle fingers - perfect for smaller hands. They look and taste better with just a tbsp. of honey or maple syrup blended into the mixture, as it helps the waffle go golden and a little crispier. The waffles can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Simply defrost and toast or grill to heat.

If you don't have a blender you can use pre-ground 'oatmeal' instead of whole oats, and simply stir together. If you don't have a waffle maker, you could use a griddle pan instead, and simply flip over half way through, but a waffle maker gives the best results!
