Vegan oat waffles are made with only 3 ingredients! This recipe for these 3 ingredient oatmeal waffles contain none of the top allergens and are gluten-free! Do I smell breakfast for all?!
Waffles always seemed like such a complicated thing to make. This is probably because we used a labour-intensive recipe when I was a kid. It involved separating the eggs, whipping the whites, gently folding them back in, melting butter, and the list went on.
Let me tell you a secret. Waffles don’t need to be more complicated than three ingredients! Inspired by our Vegan Whole Wheat Waffles, the goal was to make waffles that are 100% allergy-friendly, gluten-free (need to use certified oats), and coconut-free.

Oat flour waffles are easy to make
There is one kind of special ingredient in these vegan oat flour waffles which is oat flour. You can purchase oat flour, but if you have a good blender or food processor, you can make your own.
To make oat flour:
- Place your oats in blender or food processor
- Blend until it looks like the flour consistency you desire
- You may want to stop and start a few times to check with the texture, or to make sure no oats are stuck in corners if you have a square blender
