Vegan Gluten-free Oat Waffles
Made with oats and gluten-free flour, these waffles are light, crispy, airy and nutty. They're a wonderful sweet breakfast to enjoy on the weekend, when you have a little more time to relax and enjoy.
Servings 4 belgium waffles
- 1 1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour blend
- 1 cup oats
- 1 tbsp arrowroot powder (or corn starch)
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2.5 cups oat milk + 1/2 cup more for thinning (or use almond milk)
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup neutral oil + 1 tbsp (ex. avocado oil, coconut oil or rapeseed)
- pinch sea salt
In a blender add gluten-free flour, oats, arrowroot powder, coconut sugar and baking powder.
Combine 2.5 cups oat milk with apple cider vinegar, mix well. Add to blender with neutral oil and a pinch sea salt. Blend until smooth consistency.
Cover and let waffle batter sit for at least 30 minutes to thicken. Then, stir batter to test thickness, if too thick add splashes more milk, blend on low to combine. (I added 1/2 cup more oat milk.)
Spray inside of waffle maker with oil, close and turn on waffle maker to medium setting. When pre-heated, gently pour batter into waffle maker until almost full. Close and cook as instructed by waffle machine (about 4-5 minutes total), or until golden brown*.
Remove from heat and top with your favourite jams, fruits and maple syrup.
*Gluten-free batter often takes a little longer to cook than regular. Follow waffle maker instructions for cooking, but note that you might need to leave for 1 minute longer than instructed. (Until waffles turn golden brown in colour. I left mine for about 5 minutes total).
DO AHEAD: Batter can be made overnight. Cover and leave in fridge. If consistency is too thick, add splashed more milk and blend on low. It should be like pancake batter consistency; thick but slightly runny.
