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:
- gluten-free all-purpose flour blend
- gluten-free oats
- arrowroot powder (or corn starch)
- coconut sugar
- baking powder
- oat milk (or almond milk)
- apple cider vinegar
- neutral oil
Toss into a blender and mix to combine. Now you’ve got a fluffy batter to make gluten-free waffles with.
Tips for making this recipe
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.
