Looking for the very best vegan gluten-free waffle recipe? Well, here’s your winner. Made with gluten-free oats and gluten-free flour, these waffles are light, crispy, airy, naturally sweet and nutty in flavour. They’re a wonderful sweet breakfast to enjoy on the weekend, when you have a little more time to relax and enjoy. Certainly, there is no better way to start the morning than these warm and comforting waffles.
Personally, I love oat waffles because they’re more flavour to traditional waffles. They are nuttier in flavour with a natural sweetness. You can enjoy these waffles on their own, or add your favourite toppings. I like maple syrup and chia jam.
In addition to the oats, I’ve also used a gluten-free flour blend to make this recipe not just vegan, but entirely gluten-free too. All-in-all the it’s a simple waffle recipe with less than 10 ingredients.
Now, let me tell you exactly how to make these vegan gluten-free oat waffles so you can enjoy them pronto!
What I love most about this recipe is just how simple it is. This recipe requires less than 10 ingredients, and prep is easy. For this recipe you will need:
Toss into a blender and mix to combine. Now you’ve got a fluffy batter to make gluten-free waffles with.
As I mentioned above, these vegan gluten-free waffles are easy to make. But a few tips will help you nail this waffle recipe every time.
First of all, it’s best let your batter rest and thicken. I like to leave mine for at least 30 minutes. Or, ideally one hour. If the batter gets too thick, feel free to add splashes more oat milk. The batter should be thick, but a tad runny. Like pancake batter.
Secondly, gluten-free waffle batter takes a bit longer to cook than normal batter. So, you might like to give your waffle an extra minute in your waffle machine. Now, each waffle maker will have different recommended cooking times, so check your machine’s recommendations.
The waffle maker I used is by Cuisinart, and a green light comes on after about 3-4 minutes. However, since it’s a gluten-free batter I leave mine for one minute extra for a more golden waffle.

I dont know whst happend but mines turn out very gooey. They were so soft that it was very difficult to turn them. Fi
I put them on the air fryer and turn out more firm and crispy. 🤷♀️ Anyway the taste was awesome.
Can I make these with out the apple cider vinegar?
Hi Andrea! You can absolutely make this recipe without the apple cider vinegar. The acv is used to make a “vegan buttermilk,” but it works perfectly with just plant-based milk as well. Another option to make the buttermilk is using lemon juice instead of ACV, in case it’s of interest. 🙂
We love these waffles, I added some chopped blueberries too for my 10 month old and they were delicious!
Do you know if this mixture can be frozen?
Hi Lauren! I’m so glad that you and your kiddies enjoyed this recipe! It’s always my favourite compliment to hear that one of my recipes was kiddie approved. Enjoy those waffles and thanks for the sweet comment. 🙂
These were delightful! They were so easy to make and it was not a difficult recipe. I loved how everything was done in the blender. I Now have two food allergy kids who are happily eating waffles. Thank you! 🙂
Hello, do you need a blender for this recipe? I do not have one. 🙁
I’m sorry for bothering you, but these look very good and I would love to make them.
Thank you very much
Hi Brooklyn. You don’t need a blender for this recipe, instead you can mix all the ingredients in a bowl. But the waffles will be a little more “rustic” since we are not blending the oats into a smooth batter.
Alternatively, you can buy “oat flour” from the grocery store, which is just oats that have been ground into a fine powder. Then you can mix everything in a bowl and have the same consistency as the recipe featured above. 🙂 Hope that helps! Enjoy the waffles!!
I have not mastered my waffle making skills yet, as they are much more finicky than pancakes, but this batter recipe is amazing! So much better than traditional waffles. I recommend!
Thanks for the sweet comment Krystal! Yes, waffles can be a bit more tricky than pancakes. But once you get the hang of it you’re set! Glad you enjoyed the waffle batter and hope you try this recipe again soon!
