Banana Oat Waffles
(Local Grocery Store Friendly)

I’ve been making waffles at home for a long time, and I have a simple, local grocery store friendly recipe I want to share with you.

Watch my 2017 vegan waffle demonstration 21 minutes and 13 seconds into this video:

2 1/2 c. water
3 c. rolled oats
1 ripe banana
1 tsp. salt

Place waffles in a sprayed waffle iron for 7 minutes or until it’s done.

I use two waffle irons when I do this, and I can make five square waffles at a time with this recipe. I usually serve this with a fruit topping that I make as well.

When I’ve been using this recipe with rolled oats, I find that it’ll be pretty liquidy for about1-3 minutes, but then it’ll get thicker as the oats absorb the water.

If you try this recipe out, please tell me how it goes!

I’m going to try a different version of waffles maybe as early as next week. I want to try making waffles from soybeans. Although, it’s recommended that I soak the soybeans the night before, the soybean waffles have a lighter color that has a little more eye appeal. These banana oat waffles were a little brown out of the waffle iron, but they tasted good.

For a little over two months, I’ve been making breakfasts in my home kitchen, and it’s truly been a blessing cooking for others. Food service is a talent I want to continually cultivate to show my practical interest in the hearts and minds of others.

    Thanks for the feedback Etokatya! :)

    I generally prefer rolled oats over quick oats in my experience cooking, so I used rolled oats in this recipe. When I’ve been using this recipe with rolled oats, I find that it’ll be pretty liquidy for about1-3 minutes, but then it’ll get thicker as the oats absorb the water.

    I’m glad you liked the recipe.
    About how much water did you subtract?

    Thanks for the Recipe but what other kind of Fruit can be substituted for Banana’s? 

    I found out about 2 years ago that I have a reaction to Synephrine which is a chemical in Bananas. I would get very depressed when I would eat Very Ripe Bananas. Someone suggested that the Riper the Banana would make the Synephrine stronger.
    I Love Real Ripe Banana’s to make sandwiches and Freeze to make Deserts.

     It broke my heart when I realized what was making me so depressed at times. But Praise the Lord that I did find out and I knew what was going one. I thought I was losing my mind.

    Thanks for respond.
    Rolled oats is it old fashion oats? Or something else?
    In my receipt I used about 1 1/2 cup of water. And it was enough.
    I guess because I took more quick oats, water absorbed faster and I didn’t need a lot water.

    I believe rolled oats is old fashioned oats.

    I might have to try your recipe when I make waffles again Sunday morning. 2 1/2 cups is definitely working for me, but I’m really glad to see variations in recipes because variety is the spice of life!

    I really enjoyed this recipe!
    We used large quick oats and found that within less than a minute of blending the batter was a smooth consistency. I cut up the banana beforehand and it blended really easily!
    (I would be really interested to try some add-ins such as cinnamon, cocoa powder..)
    With our waffle maker it took about 10 minutes per waffle. The consistency was almost like using a whole wheat or flax seed mix. It made about 4 waffles!
    We will definitely be making this again and subbing in pancake instead of banana for a more savoury waffle.

    Thank you for this recipe! I didn’t have rolled oats so I replaced them with quick cook oats and the waffles turned out to be delicious. This will be my go to waffle recipe.

    Oh! I’m so glad I found you! This is the first recipe I’m going to try from here. God bless you! I’ll pray for you–you pray for me! Hugs from a wrinkly old granny in Seattle.
