Oatmeal Almond Waffles

Oatmeal Almond Waffles

This is my new waffle recipe, from now until forever.  I was inspired by Green Lite Bites’ pancake recipe to make these.  I wanted to make waffles, so I looked at a few of her waffle recipes to see the difference in the batters.  There wasn’t much of a difference except the waffle recipes had a little more sugar or maple syrup.  I took her pancake recipe and added a little more sugar to get these delightfully grainy, hearty and nutty waffles.
Oatmeal Almond Waffles

  • ¼ cup dry roasted unsalted almonds (Trader Joe’s preferably)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ c Soy milk light (unflavored)
  • ½ tsp agave nectar
Oatmeal Almond Waffles
In a food processor or blender, blend the oatmeal and almonds until it becomes a powder.

Mix in the cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda
In a separate bowl, mash the banana and mix in the egg, vanilla and milk.
Fold the wet ingredients with the dry until the dry ingredients are combined.
Pour the batter onto a waffle iron, and let it sit for 2 minutes, or until a fork easily removes the waffle.
Oh, I loooooove these waffles.  By using oatmeal and almonds instead of white flour, they make for a whole grain, nutritious breakfast.  Plus there is no butter, no added sugar and only one egg.

I know they seem almost too healthy to be good, but they were plenty sweet and moist from the banana and agave.  And the nutty-ness from the almonds… yum!!! These healthy things even got the approval of my dad and brother.  They won’t disappoint!

    I tried to find the recipe for your waffles made with Kodak Cakes. Haven’t been successful. They looked so good in the picture in the Austin newspaper.

      Hi Marsha! Thank you for your compliments! For Kodiak Cake waffles, I just use 1 cup mix + 1 cup cold water + 1 tbsp vegetable oil. The oil helps make it extra crisp and it doesn’t stick to the iron as much. I also give my iron a quick spritz with coconut oil. Let me know if you have any other questions! (And this oatmeal almond recipe is also very good!)
