If you follow me over on Instagram (@MRSDUKESFITSPO) or Facebook, you probably know – I love my waffles. I am thankful that the meal plan I follow with Hammer and Chisel allows for them. As much as I love my morning gluten free waffles, I have been wanting to find a way to make them myself. Whether my meal plan allows for store bought waffles or not, they still really aren’t all that healthy for you. None of them are very healthy or clean. This weekend at my family’s Christmas party, my aunt gave me a waffle maker. You can bet I went home that very night and started to think of how I could make my very own clean gluten free waffles at home. On my meal plan, my store bought waffles count as one yellow. I wanted to create a waffle that was still around only one yellow so I could still enjoy my morning eggs with my waffle. These waffles are incredible and honestly don’t even need any toppings – they are so flavorful all by themselves! I personally have been topping mine with 2 teaspoons of natural peanut butter and serving them alongside my two over easy eggs! One thing I love about these is that you can make the batter in advance and cook them as needed, or you can cook them all at once and save them for later.
- 2 cups of gluten free rolled oats
- 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1.5 tsp of pure vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 large banana
- 2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- Preheat waffle maker and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Blend all ingredients in a blender until almost smooth.
- If you are following the 21 Day Fix meal plan, it may be best to measure out the batter into eight equal portions so you know the exact portion size.
- Pour batter into waffle maker and cook. I cooked mine on the highest setting and then even a little longer than the waffle maker said to so they were a little crisper, otherwise these will be very soft waffles.
- Enjoy with fruit or peanut butter!
If you are following the 21 Day Fix or Hammer and Chisel meal plan, these count as 1 yellow and .25 purple. This recipe serves 8, so the number of waffles it makes depends on the size of your waffle maker. Serving size is 1/2 cup.
